Subject: Fat, fructose and calories: 5 nutrition 'facts' we used to believe
As nutrition knowledge is changing and we have found that many 'facts' from 25 years ago just do not hold true. Fat used to be an enemy, but we now know that it is a necessity from the right sources. Because we thought fructose was better for diabetics, it soon was added to everything. It is still fine in moderation in fruit, but not added to food. All calories are the same and calories in, calories out are also 'facts' that we now know are just not true.
- Certain types of fatty foods are good for cardiovascular health.
- To lose weight, reduce your calorie intake instead of food restrictions.
- With sugar intake, make sure you brush teeth and be mindful about it.
