Healthy Food Myths That Damage Your Weight Loss Poorly

The tendency to gain weight is evolutionally determined because, for thousands of years, Homo sapiens had to survive in a time when there was a limited amount of food resources. We had to hunt for food and store it. Those who were good at it were ahead of the others. Modern life is different but people are still wired to gain weight. A sedentary way of living and the consumption of high-energy foods reinforce this tendency. That’s why many people end up starving themselves while believing the myths about healthy dieting that we want to debunk in this article.

When a person’s body mass index (BMI) is normal, they have a good chance of living a long life. That’s why trying to lose excess weight is definitely worth it. However, you should be careful when battling stubborn pounds.

1: Brown sugar is better.

Brown sugar is better.

1 tsp of brown sugar contains 17 calories. 1 tsp of white sugar contains 16 calories.

Many people who try to lead a healthy way of life believe that brown sugar contains calcium, potassium, iron, and manganese that are all beneficial for the body. However, their amount is so small that it’s really doubtful you’ll get any of the health benefits.

These types of sugar hardly differ: the key distinctions are in taste and the influence on pastry dough.
