Have you ever came upon an internet healthy eating fad that shocked or surprised you? Very likely, it was a myth. Sadly, they abound on the internet and through social media. Well, let’s have a look…

Foods are classified as either healthy or unhealthy.

You’ve probably heard that eating vegetables is good for you. Imagine only eating vegetables and nothing else. Would your diet be nutritious? No wasn’t, that’s for sure.

There is no such thing as a healthy or unhealthy food; it all depends on the overall context of not only the diet but also the entire lifestyle.

In the spring, the body requires detoxification.

Unless you have a serious medical condition, your body and all of its organs are constantly detoxifying your body, 24 hours a day.

Detox teas, juices, and other treatments available for purchase or preparation at home will probably detox your wallet but have no scientific basis and cannot improve the detoxification processes of the human body.

If you want to do more for your body, drink plenty of fluids (especially water), get plenty of rest, exercise regularly, and eat a varied and balanced diet.

I need to deacidify my body.

Have you also heard that an alkaline diet is required to prevent your body from becoming too acidic? The rules of this diet present a list of alkaline foods that are said to be healthy, followed by a list of neutral and acidic foods that are harmful.

It is critical to remember that the foods we eat have no effect on the pH of our internal environment, only the pH of our urine, which is perfectly normal.

The pH of the human internal environment (blood) is kept within a very narrow range of 7.35 to 7.45 by acid-base balance mechanisms.

Metabolic or respiratory acidosis is a very serious condition that can occur only in severely ill people (e.g., diabetics) when the regulatory mechanisms fail.

In this case, the situation is so critical that you would not even consider calling an ambulance.It is important to note that the pH level cannot be influenced by diet in such cases. As a result, no alkaline diet or organism deacidification is required.

I won’t be able to build muscles unless I drink protein.

Some people have such a high protein requirement that they would be unable to meet it without the use of protein powders.

It may also be the case in other specific cases where the menu is restricted in some way.

However, the vast majority of people do not require protein powders (or other protein foods) because they can get enough protein from their diet.

Always remember to first adjust the varied composition of your diet (including adequate protein) before dealing with dietary supplements, if necessary.

The glycemic index can help you identify healthy foods.

The glycemic index (GI) is a number that indicates how quickly the body uses glucose from a given food. As a result, it demonstrates how quickly our blood sugar levels rise.

It is necessary to keep the blood sugar level (glycemia) within a certain range in order to avoid large fluctuations in hunger and sweet tooth. That is why we prefer foods with a lower GI, as it does not rise as much.

Whole grain products, for example, meet this requirement. It should be noted, however, that many other factors influence GI. When protein, fat, and fiber are consumed together, the GI is significantly reduced. In most cases, it goes without saying that no one eats the side dish itself, which would otherwise have a higher GI.

As a result, judging the nature of food solely on GI is difficult; we must consider many more variables.

It is only the calories that are important, not the type of food.

That is not the case. Calories, or the energy value of food, only determine whether we will lose, maintain, or gain weight, but the composition and selection of foods in our diet are critical.

Only by eating a diverse range of foods can we ensure that our bodies receive all of the macro- and micronutrients they require.

Without breakfast, I lose all progress and my metabolism slows down.

Even if you skip breakfast, you can achieve good results and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

However, eating breakfast can be beneficial for many people because it alleviates sweet cravings, overeating in the afternoon, a preference for fast food and sweet foods, and, of course, fatigue.

My muscles will not grow if I do not consume protein and a banana immediately following a workout.

Exercise stimulates anabolic processes in the muscles, but it does not do so for only 30 minutes, as is commonly stated, but for hours or days.

Every day, balanced and energy-sufficient meals are important, and it is not necessary to replenish energy (proteins and carbohydrates) immediately after exercise.
