  • red wine is good for your heart.

  • Okay?

  • Actually, this is the biggest myth of all time.

  • Meat is a necessary part of a balanced diet.

  • This is a controversial one, and I love this topic.

  • Fruit is as unhealthy as candy.

  • If it's orange soda and snickers or an apple, eat the apple.

  • Hi, I'm Mark Samuels, a registered dietitian and the co founder of Colina Health.

  • Hi, I'm Vanessa Rossetto and I'm a registered dietitian and co founder of Colina Health.

  • And today we are debunking 19 diet Miss Smith.

  • Number one.

  • Beans are toxic.

  • No beans, They're not toxic.

  • They have fiber, they have protein.

  • They come from the earth.

  • I mean, tomorrow.

  • I think this is just another way to, like vilify carbs.

  • I think maybe people mistake a little bit of G I discomfort with toxicity beans as Vanessa's that are really high in fiber, which is a good thing.

  • But a lot of people don't eat enough fiber.

  • And when you first reintroduced fiber, it can cause a little bit of indigestion, some bloating, maybe some gas.

  • But that doesn't mean it's a bad thing.

  • It means that you should probably just start slower with a smaller portion and build your way up toe.

  • You know a full cup of beans.

  • Okay, Miss Number two bananas pack the most.

  • Potassium.

  • Potassium is found in pretty much every fruit and vegetable.

  • Also, kiwis have the most potassium, and that bananas thing is just like a marketing scheme from the eighties.

  • So they had, like, the Chiquita banana, and it was like, Get all of your potassium from banana.

  • Delicious Chiquita bananas are rich in potassium number three.

  • Honey and agave syrup are better than sugar.

  • Actually, there's no difference, Right?

  • Sugar is sugar is sugar.

  • Ultimately, the way that we process all of these simple sugars is exactly the same in the body.

  • Although honey and depending on the type of Mugabe may have a slightly higher nutrient profile, so it might have a little bit more minerals than the sugar itself, which has absolutely no vitamins, minerals or phyto nutrients.

  • Myth number four fat free foods are always healthy.

  • First of all, everybody responds to different foods differently.

  • Fat free foods can be healthy, but a lot of the times they're not healthy.

  • Oftentimes, when we take away the fat, we take away the ability of the food to make us feel full.

  • And then we also add in things like sugar to make the food more palatable to make it taste better, which can actually end up making the food itself not healthy at all.

  • It's not worth it.

  • Just just eat the regular serving a fat and you'll be better off myth.

  • Number five.

  • Fruit is as unhealthy as candy.

  • Fruit has antioxidants and vitamins and minerals and fiber, which no one gets enough of.

  • So please eat the fruit like if it's orange soda and snickers or an apple eat the apple.

  • Yes, this myth is especially dangerous because I think people will equate through in that bad food category and then avoid it.

  • And they're missing out on a whole set of nutrients on, then also tend to overeat Candies so they'll say something like, my doctor said that I have to be careful with the fruit that I'm eating because it's increases my blood sugar on.

  • Then they'll over eat chocolate at night.

  • Myth Number six Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

  • I think this myth can be harmful because for people who have all or nothing thinking.

  • They believe that if they don't get breakfast right or have a healthy, well balanced breakfast, then the rest of the day is sort of ruined.

  • And they use that as an excuse for them to not make healthy choices for the rest of the day.

  • The reality is that every time we eat is an opportunity for us.

  • Thio.

  • Take care of ourselves and eat a nutritious meal if you do not eat.

  • If you spend long periods of time not eating, then your metabolism doesn't know to do its job.

  • Even having a small piece of fruit and nut butter or nuts in the morning is just like enough to feel your metabolism and get yourself going and likely making sure that you're not gonna overeat at later meals.

  • Miss Number seven.

  • You must drink eight glasses of water a day.

  • You know, there's like these quick and dirty calculations that dietitians used to determine how much water someone should drink, and so it's usually your weight in kilograms.

  • Take that number and you would times it by somewhere around 25 to 30.

  • It puts you somewhere in like a Tu leader range a day which I know.

  • It can be scary for some people that, like I have to go to the bathroom all the time.

  • But spoiler were in Covic, so drink the water and then you could train your bladder and you'll be right at your bathroom, so it's totally fun.

  • But that helps you with your skin.

  • It helps you with your hair.

  • It helps you with your nails and helps you with fullness.

  • It helps you with digestion.

  • It helps regulate your bowel movements, so water is obviously something we need to be doing.

  • And we need to be doing more up because people really don't drink enough water.

  • You can get water from other places so you could get water from tease specifically herbal teas.

  • You could get water from coffee, but coffee is also a diuretic.

  • So you're going to sort of eliminate some of that water a little bit more than you would if you got it from a herbal tea that doesn't have that diuretic effect.

  • You can get water from soups, and then most fruits and vegetables have a really high water content.

  • Missed number eight.

  • You can eat cheese if you're lactose intolerant.

  • This is a pretty dangerous myths because skipping out on any food group can be harmful for missing certain nutrients, especially dairy products.

  • Not all dairy products contain high amounts of lactose, so people who are lactose intolerant actually tend to do well with cheese, especially hard cheeses.

  • The soft cheeses tend to have a little bit more lactose than them.

  • Yeah, like Parmesan cheese, for example, has no lactose in it.

  • Also, if you're lactose intolerant, you could train yourself to tolerate 250 milliliters.

  • That's about eight ounces of black toas.

  • You know the bottom line is you can eat some cheese even if you're lactose intolerant.

  • Myth number nine Red wine is good for your heart.

  • Okay?

  • Actually, this is the biggest myth of all time.

  • E understand where it must come from, right?

  • You know it's made with grapes.

  • Grapes have antioxidants, and you know they have flavonoids.

  • Those tend to help with the heart.

  • So, like, that's fine.

  • And, you know, one glass of red wine isn't going to hurt you.

  • But out of like a 250,000 participants study about the effects of alcohol on the body.

  • There are no riel benefits thio alcohol, alcohol.

  • The body seizes the poison.

  • The body has thio do a lot of work and sacrifice a lot of metabolic processes in order.

  • Thio metabolize alcohol.

  • If you're looking to support your heart instead of picking up the closest bottle of wine, think about ways you can incorporate more fiber more heart healthy, fat on.

  • Of course, increasing your physical activity.

  • Yeah, you can't increase your physical activity if you're hungover from the night before and dehydrated Miss number 10.

  • Fresh produce is always better than frozen produce.

  • Fresh produce is definitely awesome.

  • There's nothing wrong with having fresh produce, but not everyone has access to fresh produce.

  • And the cool thing about frozen produce is that it's often frozen at peak ripeness so we can capture all of the vital vitamins and minerals and nutrients within the products without having to sacrifice sort of convenience for being able to store these things in our freezer.

  • Myth Number 11, you need to drink milk for strong bones again.

  • This is like the Dairy Council.

  • I don't know.

  • I'm afraid that we're going to come and find me.

  • Milk is not necessarily going to help with strong bones.

  • You could get the same amount of calcium in a stalk of broccoli as a glass of milk.

  • The reason why milk is so called good for our bones because, as Vanessa said, the calcium content.

  • But milk is also fortified with vitamin D, which means that it doesn't naturally contain vitamin D.

  • Most foods don't so.

  • One of the best ways that you can get vitamin D is by getting out there and getting some sun.

  • So actually, getting son might be just as helpful for strong bones and drinking a glass of milk, if not more helpful.

  • Miss Number 12 probiotics are good for everyone.

  • Everybody has probiotics in their gut already.

  • So when we talk about probiotics in a supplement form, some people who have compromised immunity or who have certain gut conditions like small intestine bacterial overgrowth actually tend to do pretty poorly on probiotics.

  • For the vast majority of the population, probiotics are good for everyone.

  • That doesn't mean you have to take a supplement.

  • You can definitely get it in food.

  • Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, miss number 13, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

  • Well, kind of.

  • I think this myth needs to be.

  • 10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day keeps the doctor away.

  • Making the choice to have an apple instead of candy is a good choice, and that is certainly going to help support your help.

  • But if the rest of your diet consists of mostly refined, processed foods that are devoid in vitamins, minerals and fiber, then the doctor is still gonna be an important person in your life.

  • Miss Number 14 cravings mean you're missing something from your diet.

  • And there's certainly no science to say that if you crave ex food than you need to have more of why food in your diet so cravings can come from a lot of different places.

  • But I found that that's mostly from not having balance blood sugar on from emotional psychological reasons.

  • You know, the clients come in and they're like, I don't need carbs.

  • I'm really good about not eating carbs.

  • But at night I eat an entire bag of Hershey Kisses you're like because you need carbs.

  • Eat the carbs.

  • So there is a condition where people deficient in iron, they actually cream soil and clay.

  • It's called pica on DSO.

  • There is something there that exists around cravings for certain flavors.

  • I don't know why people want to eat dirt when they're anemic, but that is something that Israel happens a lot, especially with pregnant women.

  • Myth 15.

  • Everyone should cut gluten out of their diet.

  • No, if it bothers you, then cut it out.

  • Or if you have celiac disease, then cut it out.

  • Just the regular person walking down the street doesn't necessarily need to cut out gluten right tomorrow.

  • Everyone's coming in wanting a gimmick.

  • Yeah, a lot of people cut out gluten, and they feel better.

  • But that's mostly because they cut out gluten containing foods, which tend to be unhealthy.

  • So I think people tend to confuse the benefits of cutting out those highly processed, refined carbohydrates with gluten itself.

  • Myth number 16 White potatoes are bad for you.

  • Oh, this myth is so sad.

  • So many people are missing out on delicious potatoes.

  • The potatoes are actually quite high in potassium.

  • On the skin.

  • Test potatoes contain a decent amount of fiber as well.

  • White potatoes also have the source of vitamin A, so it's good for your eyes.

  • A serving size, though, is ah, half cup.

  • I think that's the other problem.

  • You think that because the potato is purple or you know it's a sweet potato, so it's like more complex and better for you like, but the serving size really is half of a small one or half a cup.

  • Mid 17 activated charcoal is a superfood.

  • What is even a superfood like everyone talks about these super foods.

  • This is not a real thing.

  • Also, charcoal is not a food.

  • It doesn't have a nutritional value.

  • It's not something that we can eat and gain benefits from.

  • It actually passes through our body completely, and if we have it in large amount, that could be toxic mix.

  • Number 18 meat is a necessary part of a balanced diet.

  • This is a controversial one, and I love this topic.

  • We do get Ah, lot of nutrients from meat.

  • Some of those nutrients we cannot get from plant based foods or it's not as easy to get them from plant based.

  • One of those is the 12, so people who have ah, mostly plant based diet need to supplement would be 12.

  • For the most part, that being said, we can absolutely have a plant based diet and be incredibly healthy.

  • You could also have a plant based diet and be unhealthy.

  • You probably shouldn't eat meat, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • You wanna have some plants in there?

  • Those are all like sensible things.

  • And also, if you're 100% vegan, don't turn your nose at me because I'm eating a burger.

  • But everything you eat is from by Chloe, because that's also not really healthy, either.

  • Missed 19.

  • You shouldn't eat after six PM Remember Oprah in like the nineties had she lost a bunch away and she was like, I don't eat after six And then everybody was like, Don't eat after six.

  • You want to give your body time to digest.

  • Everything should be metabolized by the time you go to bed so you could have a rest ful sleep.

  • There's no hard and fast rule that you need to stop eating by six PM this individualized it's all else fails.

  • Focus on the basics of eating more fruits and vegetables, eating meals throughout the day that are balanced with proteins, carbs and healthy fat.

  • And if you could start there, that's a good place.

  • It doesn't have to be over complicated.

  • Do your research.

  • Make sure you understand.

  • You know, all the facts presented.

  • And then at the end of the day, just do what's right for you.

  • Also asked like professionals not not the Internet guys.

red wine is good for your heart.
