Many of them say they eat a healthy diet. And they truly believe they are eating a healthy diet. Therefore they are confused and frustrated as to why they are not losing weight.
When I ask a little more about what they are eating… It turns out they have been largely misinformed about what is healthy and what is not.
For example, most of my new clients think that “low fat” foods will help to keep them slim while saturated fats like butter or coconut oil or even avocados will “make them fat.”
One of my most trusted and valued sources of leading edge information about nutrition and exercise as well as heath and well being comes from a website by Dr. Joesph Mercola. He has an article in his blog that just hits the nail right on the head.
I just want to sum up for you here what these ten lies are so you can get the gist of what I’m saying in as short a time as possible. I do urge you to read the full article as well as subscribe to Mercola’s newsletter. It’s one of the few that is worth you time.
Here are the Ten Lies and Misconceptions Spread by Mainstream Nutrition Media about What is healthy or not:
- Saturated Fat Causes Heart Disease. FALSE!
- Eating Fat makes you gain weight. FALSE!
- Artificial Sweeteners are Safe Sugar-Replacements for Diabetics, and Help Promote Weight Loss’ FALSE!
- Your body cannot tell the difference between sugar and fructose. FALSE!
- Soy is a health food. FALSE!
- Eggs are a source of “unhealthy” cholesterol. FALSE!
- Whole grains are good for everyone. FALSE!
- Conventional Milk “does a body good”. FALSE!
- Genetically engineered foods are safe and comparable to conventional foods. FALSE!
- Lunch Meats make for a healthy, nutritious meal. FALSE!
The bottom line is that if you are serious about losing weight and getting fit, you MUST take personally responsibility for digging in to what you have been falsely led to believe by the mainstream media. There answers are available. But you have to be open to creating a clean slate as far as “what is true and false” about nutrition.
A solid combination of practical, sensible nutrition as well as clearing old patterns and habits of thinking and communicating to your unconscious mind can deliver remarkably rapid results without deprivation or failure.
