Diets: Myth vs. Truth-Part 1
Myth: Exercise and Cardiovascular activity can prolong your life.
Truth: Your heart is only good for so many beats. Eventually, like all things, it will wear out. Don’t waste it on exercise. Prolong your life and take a nap!
Myth: It’s healthier to eat more fruits and veggies and less meat.
Truth: When you eat beef, you’re eating cow. And what do cows eat? Hay and corn (veggies) and field grass (leafy greens). So really, when you eat a big juicy steak, you’re getting all the nutrition you need from vegetables. Eat chicken if you need more grains in your diet.
Myth: You should limit your alcohol intake.
Truth: Again, let’s look at what alcohol really is. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine. And beer is made out of grain. Drink up!
Myth: Calculating your body/fat ratio can be very complicated. And confusing.
Truth: Nope, not confusing or complicated at all. If you have a body and you have body fat, the ratio is one to one. If you have to bodies, the ratio is two to one, etc.
Myth: Fried foods are unhealthy.
Truth: Fried foods are not bad for you at all. Most are fried in vegetable oil. Why would more vegetables be bad for you?
Part 2 will be posted tomorrow!
