10 food myths dietitians wish people would stop believing

Carbs are the enemy: Carbohydrates are an essential macronutrient and a primary source of energy for the body.

Eating fat makes you fat: Healthy fats, such as those found in avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil, are important for overall health and can actually aid in weight.

All calories are equal: While calorie intake is important for weight management, the source of calories matters. Nutrient-dense foods like vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains.

Egg yolks are unhealthy: Egg yolks contain essential nutrients like vitamin D, choline, and antioxidants. They can be part of a healthy diet when consumed in moderation.

Eating late at night causes weight gain: Weight gain is more about total calorie intake versus the time of day you eat. What matters most is the quality and quantity of food consumed throughout the day.

Going gluten-free is healthier for everyone: Unless you have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, there's no need to avoid gluten-containing grains like wheat, barley, and rye.

Detox diets are necessary to cleanse the body: The body has its own built-in detoxification system involving the liver, kidneys, and other organs.

Low-fat or fat-free products are always healthier: Many low-fat or fat-free products contain added sugars, artificial flavors, and other additives to compensate for the reduced fat content.

Skipping meals is an effective way to lose weight: Skipping meals can lead to overeating later in the day and may slow down metabolism over time.

Organic foods are always healthier: While organic foods may be produced without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, they are not necessarily more nutritious.
