11 Worst Lies That Mainstream Nutrition Has Led You To Believe

We attempt to put the healthiest and most nutritious food on our plates, but with all the choices, it is not easy to determine what we should actually be eating. Many common beliefs what a healthy diet should like are totally wrong. Have a look at the eleven lies and myths told to us by mainstream nutrition.

1. Eggs Are Unhealthy
There's one thing that nutrition professionals have had remarkable success with...and that is demonizing incredibly healthy foods.
The worst example of that is eggs, which happen to contain a large amount of cholesterol and were therefore believed to increase the risk of heart disease.
But recently it has been proven that the cholesterol in your diet doesn't really raise the cholesterol in blood. In fact, eggs primarily raise the "good" cholesterol and are NOT associated with increased risk of heart disease (1, 2).
Bottom Line: Eggs do not cause heart disease and are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. Eggs for breakfast can help you lose weight.

Cool! Another over-simplified statement I can live with!
My tastebuds love ice cream, bacon, fried oreos and hamburgers. I shall follow their recommendations and live on this instead of the ol' moderation thing I was trying before!

Oh, gluten sensitivity is real, though its exact prevalence may be debatable, as many people who suffer from it may have only mild symptoms. But I agree with you that grains isn't the culprit here - highly refined grain product may not be good for you though.

I always wonder about research findings that seem to be complete opposites (i.e. "eggs are good for you" vs "eggs are bad for you"). At first, I thought that one of the studies are just bad - must be, right? But after reading some work by Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky (Belief in the Law of Small Numbers), I'm not so sure anymore.
