Let’s talk about some of these myths. I think that some of them are funny. Eggs are bad for you. This is one that always gets under my skin. Sure they are bad for you if you eat a dozen per day. But if you eat them like you should, they are actually good for you. Eggs have been given a bad name for too long. I think we should all go out and have a three egg omelet today. I’ll take mine with cheese please. Greasy snacks cause pimples. This has been said about chocolate as well. This is farthest from the truth. Pimples are caused by clogged pores not by what we eat. If you are rubbing the chips all over your face, you might have an argument there. But, I don’t think that is the case.
Wheat intolerance is very popular these days, and often takes the blame for weight gain. However there are very few of us (less than 0.1%) that actually suffer from this condition. People who have a wheat free diet may very well lose weight, but this is normally because they cut things such as pizza, cakes, biscuits, puddings and processed foods.
Looking back, here are some of this Examiner’s most popular food science articles, where we define “food science” as articles on how and why something works as well as debunking Food Myths. The latest guidance on intelligent plans for which is better jenny craig or nutrisystem. The two most popular were one on how to bake a potato in the oven or microwave, and how to poach a lot of eggs at the same time. Have fun reading them!
I hate telling people this, but this myth is false. Many times it’s impossible to keep food as sanitary as people would like. First of all, when drive thru windows are open, bugs enter the restaurant. Second, cashiers often have to prepare part of your meal and they don’t have time to wash their hands after accepting your money.
As always, there is a little truth to the myths, but not much. Sometimes we will see things that we know are wrong, but they do have a point to them. Sometimes the point is just to make you think.
Take everyone’s favorite snack for example ‘ potato chips. These can be labeled all natural and seem like less of a guilty pleasure, but even natural potatoes become fattening when they get fried and coated with salt. So don’t be fooled by creative packaging. A marketing professional helped to design the package. Instead focus on the label that lists nutritional values.
The biggest deception laid upon dieters is the term “low-fat.” Remember, they may have taken out the fat, but that doesn’t mean the sugar is gone. Low-fat foods can still pack substantial calories too, so read the labels carefully.
