3 Common Food Myths Exposed

Myth: Fresh fruits and vegetables are healthier than frozen or canned

Fact: Research shows frozen and canned foods are nutritious as fresh foods.

Myth: Eating just before bedtime is fattening

Fact: What you eat, not when, makes a difference; calories have the same effect on the body no matter when they are consumed. Evidence does suggest that eating regular meals, especially breakfast, helps promote weight loss by reducing fat intake and minimizing impulsive snacking.

Myth: Bodyweight is a reliable indicator of a healthful diet

Fact: No two people have the same body composition. The measure of a person’s diet and overall health is a combination of factors, including weight.
