🚀 Busting Myths with Coach Lou 🚀

Howdy Y'all!

I thought we'd end the week strong with a few few juicy myth busters! ready to tackle some common nutrition myths? It's time to separate fact from fiction and keep your nutrition journey on the right track! Let’s dive into some myth-busting goodness.

Myth: Eating Fat Makes You Fat

Busted: Healthy fats are essential! They're crucial for brain health, hormone production, and nutrient absorption. It's all about balance and choosing the right kinds of fats.

Myth: Carbs are the Enemy

Busted: Carbs are not inherently bad. They're a primary energy source, especially for your brain. Opt for complex carbs like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables for sustained energy.

Myth: You Need to Eat Every 2-3 Hours to Keep Metabolism High

Busted: Eating frequency doesn't significantly affect metabolism. It's more important to listen to your body's hunger cues and focus on the quality of your meals.

Myth: Supplements Can Replace Whole Foods

Busted: While supplements can complement your diet, they can't replace the variety of nutrients and benefits of whole foods. Aim for a well-rounded diet first.

Myth: All Calories are Created Equal

Busted: Not all calories have the same effect on your body. 200 calories of vegetables vs. 200 calories of candy will have vastly different impacts on your hunger, hormones, and health.

Myth: Skip Meals to Lose Weight Faster

Busted: Skipping meals can lead to overeating later and slow down your metabolism. Regular, balanced meals are key for sustainable weight loss.

Myth: Diet Foods Are Always a Healthier Choice

Busted: Don't be fooled by "diet" labels. These products can be loaded with artificial sweeteners or additives. Whole, unprocessed foods are typically a better option.

Myth: Drinking Water Helps You Lose Weight

Busted: While water doesn't directly cause weight loss, it aids in digestion, prevents overeating, and is essential for overall health.
