Frozen fruits & vegetables are less nutritious than fresh ones.
Frozen fruits and vegetables are flash-frozen within hours of being picked, locking in a majority of the nutrients. Take advantage of fresh produce when you can-but keeping a stash of frozen produce on-hand for times when you’re in a hurry or it’s not in-season.
You have to count calories to lose weight.
If you’re mindful or consuming vitamins and minerals your body needs, you’ll be able to drop pounds without calorie counting – because your body treats 100 calories of brown rice & veggies a lot differently than 100 calories of cupcakes!
Eggs are bad for you.
Eggs are packed with nutrients; there are six grams of protein and five grams of fat in each one. This combination helps you feel full and satisfied. Still nervous about the yolk? Keep it; it’s full of essential fatty acids.
After-dinner eating causes weight gain.
If you eat more calories than your body needs, you will gain weight- even if dinner was at 5 p.m. The problem is, most people who eat late at night are starved and wind up overeating, or bored and more likely to grab unhealthy snacks.
Carbs are bad for you.
Your brain & body need carbs to function. However, they don’t need refined carbs like white bread, pasta, candy, and cookies. The best sources of healthy carbohydrates are whole grains, veggies, and fruits.
