Myth #1: Taking Vegetable Juice Is The Only Way To Detoxify Your System.

This is not true. The perfect way to cleanse your body is to eat a full, healthy diet filled with real food. 

Normally, you do detoxing’ on a daily basis by ingesting nutrient-dense foods and make use of some lifestyle practices that improves the body’s natural detoxification systems.

This means taking care of the liver, which mostly  does thr work of eliminating toxins from the bloodstream, by eating leafy greens and vegetables, drinking water and exercising.

As for limiting your intake to vegetable juice-only cleanses? It’s not adviseable. Plus, vegetable-based juices tend to be high in calories, which can affect your calorie levels.

It is better to eat your vegetable than drink it.

Leafy veggies, like cabbage and pumpkin leaf aid's the liver’s ability to detoxify the body on a daily basis.

Myth #2: Eating Gluten Free Doean't Mean You Are  Totally Healthy

There is no reason for you to completly remove grains with gluten, like wheat and barley from your diet.

 Grains are a kind  of carbohydrate that gives you energy and also contain some necessary nutrients to help your body work well, the removal of an entire food group is not medically adviseable

It’s hard to make up for the loss of nutrients in grains, including B vitamins, iron, magnesium, selenium and fiber.

 The proper nutritional advice is for you to focus on whole grains such as whole wheat which offer more fiber than processed ones. 

Many people cut gluten as a way to lose weight, turning to prepackaged, gluten-free foods that do actually cause weight gain since these products often have added sugar for flavor.

 So if possible, eat whole grains that are as unprocessed as you can find.

Myth #3: Multivitamin Every Day Doesn't Make You More Healthier

An average healthy adult, should be able to skip a supplement and get the necessary vitamins from the food you eat. 

Though there’s no harm in taking vitamins to ensure you are in top condition, supplements known to support the immune system can be helpful in avoiding viruses that would affect your daily activities.

 The one such nutrient you really need is vitamin D. Vitamin D aids in protecting the body from viruses and fight inflammation.

 Myth #4: You Must Drink Eight Glasses of Water a Day

Alot of factors determine the actual amount of water you need per day, including how healthy you are, your llevel of fitness, how much you sweat, where you live and even if you are male or female.

The recommendation to drink eight glasses a day did not result from physiological research, the notion got popular from the statement of a nutritionist that around eight glasses per day is appropriate for the average adult, which also includes the water in all fluids, from coffee to beer, plus the water in food.

 The health rule is to know your thirst levels. When you feel thirsty, your body is telling you that you are dehydrated, which can cause negative side effects like fainting.

Plain water is best, but other water sources such as  beverages, coconut, maple and aloe waters, sports drinks and enhanced waters still aids in hydration.

They may just give you extra calories and sugar.

Myth #5: You Should Avoid All Fats

Forget the saying, “If you eat fat, you’ll get fat.” Certain fats, especially those from avocados, olive oil, nuts, seeds, fish and even dark chocolate provide a terrific source of nutrients you can’t find anywhere else

Inflammatory fats, such as trans fats and corn oil, are highly inflammatory and were produced in the 20th century and packed into processed foods.

 Try to avoid inflammatory fats by checking food labels. Look at the ingredients on a product before buying them.

Now you know, share to others.
