6 Nutrition Myths Unveiled – Update 2019

Did you know that many of the diet and nutrition myths you know are totally false?

Don’t feel bad because even those who study nutrition have had to relearn and update us in all these myths!

But the good thing is that you are updating soon. Today you are getting updated with the truth and the facts. Because these nutrition myths have been proven false after many scientific studies and research.

 

Myth #1: Fats makes us FAT

The myth that fat makes us fat and causes cardiovascular disease problems is a completely false myth. This myth is a consequence of a poorly performed study that unfortunately has caused severe consequences in our health.

It’s not the fat that causes us your problem, it’s the carbohydrates and the sugars!

Low Fat Diets Can Be Detrimental To Your Health

Low-fat diets can create more problems later than they solve in the moment. It sounds logical – eliminate fat to reduce your fat, but this is far from the reality. There’s no point in eliminating your excess weight at the expense of your health, which sadly occurs all too often. Low fat diets often contribute to this.

People feel that a diet that has any fat in at all contributes to weight gain. And that a low or fat free diet is a healthier diet.

If you consume a lot of fried food, this will contribute to weight gain. But there is much more to this topic than meets the eye.

For a start, the type and quality of the fat consumed

This has a huge impact on whether or not you gain weight. For example, canola oil is so unhealthy, it will contribute not only to your weight gain, but to your deteriorating health, too.

Next on the list is how you consume this fat.

For example, olive oil is considered to be a healthy oil, all things considered. But the first pressed, virgin olive oil has far more nutrition than the subsequent pressings resulting in cheaper oils.

Cold pressed oil is far more nutritious too, as heat destroys many of the natural nutrients that are beneficial. The more nutritious an oil is, the less likely it is to cause a problem, such as weight gain or digestive problems.

Highly processed fats, such as hydrogenated fat, create havoc with your health and weight as they are virtually undigestible.

Benefits of Avocado Oil And How to Include it in Your Diet

Avocado oil is a nutrient-dense oil that should be in everyone’s kitchen. It’s great for cooking, skin care, and digestive health and offers more benefits than I can list. It might just be the next coconut oil… maybe.

 

So what’s so great about avocado oil?

 

Oleic acid – The same fatty acid that makes olive oil so amazing, oleic acid is good for the immune system and can withstand oxidation much better than most oils. This makes it last longer without going rancid and better at withstanding high temperatures.

Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids and it works to lower bad cholesterol and raise your good cholesterol. Avocado oil is just as effective as extra virgin olive oil.

 

Vitamin E – An essential vitamin for healthy skin, hair and nails, vitamin E helps prevent against the oxidative damage caused by free-radicals.

The oleic acid in avocado oil along with the carotenoids and vitamin E can reduce the growth of precancerous and cancer cells and even cause cell death in abnormal cells. The carotenoids also decrease the side effects of chemotherapy.

 

Digestion – Avocado oil is great for gut health for similar reasons as avocado itself. Cold pressed avocado oil is rich in enzymes and healthy fats that help stimulate your body to repair itself. The avocado oil’s vitamin E can help strengthen the skin and the immune system when you eat it.

If you experience frequent heartburn or feel an abnormally high amount of gas and bloating on a regular basis, or if you feel tired all the time, poor digestion may be the cause.

The vitamins, minerals and monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil all help the digestive tract to process food more efficiently. This won’t fix it overnight, of course, but you will be surprised at how quickly you will start to feel better, have more energy and may even start to lose weight as a result!

A special note: you want to make sure you always buy the unrefined, cold-pressed, extra virgin version whether you want to cook with avocado oil or use it for your skin and hair.
