Following the food pyramid is not as healthy as you might think. There is a reason that it has been updated to MyPlate.
Doing only one form of exercise. Swim, bike, run, lift, climb. Cross training is the best thing for your body.
Packaged healthy foods: While better than candy bars, they don’t beat fresh, whole produce.
Avoiding microwaves: It doesn’t kill nutrients; it’s just that most microwaveable foods don’t come with a lot of nutrients to start with.
Cleansing: Eat right, exercise, and your body will take care of the toxins. Depriving yourself of nutrients does more harm than good.
Store bought smoothies: One Naked will provide you with half your daily sugar intake.
Meal replacement shakes: Nothing can replace a healthy, well-balanced diet.
Tans: No amount of tanning is healthy. Your body releases melanin in response to skin damage by UV radiation. So if you have a tan, your skin has been damaged.
Low calorie foods: Be careful with this health myth. Just because something is low calorie, doesn’t make it healthy. Styrofoam is low-calorie.
Blowing of steam or venting: Psychology tells us that venting your anger actually leads to more anger. Going for a walk is a much better health habit.
