olive oil; and to not eat these fats in the

presence of too many starchy carbs.

Myth 2. Drink milk for strong bones…

Whilst it's true that dairy products are high

in calcium, so too are many other foods;

Dark leafy green vegetables - such as

kale - have comparable calcium levels

while sesame seeds contain more than

eight times the calcium of cow's milk,

and both these sources are also richer in

Magnesium and Vitamin K which are also

needed for strong bones.

Myth 3. Eggs are bad cholesterol…

Although egg yolks are high in dietary

cholesterol, they are chock full of important

nutrients and the advice to restrict their

consumption has now been eliminated

because they don't actually raise your

blood cholesterol much. Cholesterol is

one of the most important biochemicals in

the body and only a small amount comes

from our diet - most of the cholesterol we

need is made by our liver and consuming

eggs has actually been shown to improve

HDL (good) cholesterol.

Myth 4. Red meat is bad for you…

Meat has been getting a lot of bad press

lately. Putting the environmental argument

aside, the World Health Organisation

have labelled red meat as a 'probable'

carcinogen to humans. They use the

word 'probable' because the studies

don't separate all the other factors that

can be involved in cancer development,

like a lack of fruit, vegetables and fibre

intake as well as exercise and smoking

and alcohol consumption. The main

issue is with cured, smoked and

processed meats, which can contain

chemical compounds (nitrosamines and

polyaromatic hydrocarbons) that have

been found to damage DNA that could

potentially initiate the cancer process. So

if eating less red meat is on your agenda,

for whatever reason, start by cutting back

on the cured, smoked and processed

forms and when you do eat meat, stack

your plate high with vegetables and don't

worry too much.

Myth 5. Salt is bad for you…

Sodium is an essential mineral that we

cannot survive without. Studies have

shown that consuming too much is linked

to high blood pressure. The real issue

though is the source of salt in our diets.

Many processed foods are very high in

salt and so people who consume too

much salt are typically guilty of consuming

too many processed foods, which are

generally unhealthy and lack nutrients.

If we base our diet mostly around

unprocessed foods we don't have to

worry about salt.

Better nutrition can lead to an

improved feeling of overall wellbeing.
