Food myths you did not know
Here are 8 food myths you did not know before:
It’s bad to consume food during late night wee hours
As per the Center of Health of West Virginia University, it doesn’t matter when you eat, but what you eat. So, stop cursing those late night cravings, and eat right.
Eggs affect your heart badly
The experts at Royal School of Medicine in the UK said that the cholesterol found in egg yolks has no consequential impact on your heart. Heart problems are a result of increased saturated fats in your diet, while eggs have a very little amount of saturated fats.
Lobsters screech during a boil
Well, this one will save you from being guilty any longer! Due to the absence of vocal cords, lobsters just cannot screech or scream when boiled in hot water. The noise that you hear is actually the steam fleeing away from its shell.
The only alcohol that has health benefits: Red Wine
Such a big discrimination with other alcohols! As per Mayo Clinic, not only red wine, but also beer and other distilled spirits can protect you from cardiovascular diseases and strokes.
6 small meals outweigh 2 big meals
According to American Diabetes Association’s research conducted in 2013, 54 patients who consumed 2 large meals for 12 weeks had a steadier weight loss as compared to the ones who relied on 6 small meals.
Fresh vegetables are more nutritious than frozen ones
As per the studies, veggies start losing their essential nutrients right from the time they are taken out from farm. And while they reach the market for sale, their deficiency in nutrients increases. In contrast, the ones picked from farms and stored in refrigerators tend to restore the required nutrients.
Microwave cooking is evil
Most of us think that cooking in microwave leads to sucking of the essential nutrients. But that’s not true. As microwave cooks delicious food in lesser heat and time, it effectively locks in the healthy essentials, thereby making us fit and healthy.
Carbs are good for no reason
Carbs are not bad if taken in the right quantities. Let’s take an example of one of our favorite foods: Pasta. If you end up eating it too much, it will definitely increase your weight. But when you consume it in moderate amounts, it will have a positive impact on your blood sugar levels.
