Health Tip Myths That Aren't True

By uday saini- JUL 10, 2019

Lose Weight

Everything can make you fat nowadays and there are all these different workouts programs that say they will help get you the body you want, how can you cut through the BS and find the facts? We’ve gathered the 10 biggest health myths so you can get the hard facts

Eating Fatty Foods Makes You Fat

Just because fat goes into your body doesn’t mean it’ll stay as fat


Fat in moderation is a necessary part of a balanced diet. The reason someone gains weight is because of an imbalance of energy. If you burn more calories than you take in, you’ll never gain weight. Fat will only make you fat if you eat too much of it.

Some of the best fatty foods like nuts, seeds, and avocados help you to feel fuller for longer. There are better fats than others, like coconut oil vs. trans fat but it’s the excess consumption that causes weight gain not just the food itself.

Spot Training Will Help Burn Fat In Those Areas

Burning body fat in specific areas depends on the individual person
If you have some fat between your abs and skin and you want to melt that off, it would only make sense that doing hundreds or even thousands of crunches and sit-ups would help get rid of it, right? Not exactly. Any type of spot training will help strengthen those muscles but it might not burn the fat in that specific area.

Cardiovascular exercise is and always will be the best way to shed weight in troubling fat areas. Fat get distributed all over your body even if you get localized fat loss surgery. This doesn’t mean to give up your workouts, but changing the intensity or shifting more to cardiovascular exercise may be a better use of your time.

Eating Carbs Makes You Fat

Again, the truth comes down to how many carbs you’re putting into your body in comparison to how much you’re burning. Carbohydrates are getting a bad rep because this myth. Poor diet and lack of exercise is to blame for your weight gain not the carbs themselves.

There are different carbohydrates. A Pop-Tart’s carbohydrates and an apple aren’t the same. The problem has to do with highly processed carbohydrates. Limit the amount of carbs you eat in the form of sugar because it has the least nutritional value and focus on whole grains.

The Scale Is The Best Indicator Of Weight Loss

The scale is your worst friend
Traditionally we’ve stepped on the scale to see our progress, but a scale can be more misleading to someone trying to lose weight and even detrimental. The scale treats your fat and muscle the same way, if you’re strengthening your muscles in your exercise you might see you weight going up instead of down. The best indicator of your progress is how you look and feel, and measuring your percent body fat

MGS Is Bad For You

Monosodium glutamate has been demonized because of the foods it’s in not the MSG itself


Most foods that contain MSG are highly processed foods like Doritos, Cheetos, and other salty foods.

MSG has a rep that it can cause headaches or leads to obesity. There are people who are more sensitive to MSG than others. Just like any other food allergen, people react to MSG differently. Small amounts of MSG won’t turn you into Chinese food addicts.

Lose One Pound For Every 3,500 Calories You Burn

Weight loss is more than just a numbers game


We all wished that weight loss was as simple as an equation, and tracking your calories can obviously help make sure you’re on track for shedding a few pounds, but technically you do not lose a pound for every 3,500 calories. Depending on our diets and the intensity of whatever we are doing losing a pound can range from a 2,000 to 5,000 caloric deficit. Much of the energy we burn up comes from a combination of fat, water, and other forms of tissue.

High-Fructose Corn Syrup Is Worse Than Sugar

Both high-fructose corn syrup and sugar are bad for you in large amounts


There is no significant difference between the two and both has poor nutritional value.

Gluten-Free Foods Are Healthier

Gluten-free foods are only healthier for you if you’re allergic to gluten


The gluten-free craze itself is completely nonsensical. The only reason you would ever need to go on a gluten-free diet is if you are celiac or gluten sensitive. The absence of gluten in any food doesn’t automatically make the food healthier. Many of the gluten-free foods are made with refined starches making them unhealthier than their gluten counterparts.

Just because someone has become much healthier when cutting out gluten from their diet doesn’t mean it will work for you. It’s only natural that they would be healthier because they couldn’t process gluten in the first place.

You Need To Poop Daily

If you don’t need to poop every day, don’t worry about it


A single bowel movement every day isn’t for everyone. Everyone is different, and as long as you’re eating the right foods and staying hydrated you don’t have to worry about your bowel movements. The frequency of defecation isn’t something you should hold to a schedule. As long as your stool appears to be healthy and it doesn’t cause any discomfort don’t worry about your poop.
