Nicci asks: What food myth have you bought into?


@Anonymous (who wants to "keep up" your weight) I suggest searching for articles and ways to MAINTAIN your weight :) That may help.

Why does everybody have to write nutrition articles from the perspective of loosing weight? Believe it or not, some of use don't need to worry about weight (other than keeping it up). I am one of those...but finding out what I should eat or should not eat is horribly difficult.

I end up drinking protein shakes to keep my weight up when I am "eating healthy" -- but I suspect that is NOT the healthy way to live!

Can you point me to any good sources where I can learn about what is good, healthy eating without a focus on weight loss?

I've deeply bought into the myth of eggs bringing on (or having some bearing upon) prostate cancer, colorectal cancer. Could you please elaborate a little more on such a statement?

What about the "poisonous" and "allergy triggering" nature of cow\s milk casein?

I believe above two and casein issue in particular are worthiest statements to elaborate upon.

Best regards,

There are a lot of 'old wives tales' and myths out there about the 'devil' foods that would just ruin your diet.
It turns out that the natural foods-- the ones that aren't manufactured--are for the most part just fine . This assumes that we eat within reason.
There is an article on my website that discusses this. you can check it out at or look for my next article on ezine.

You don't have to starve yourself to lose weight-just eat the right--real-- foods in moderation, and stay away from the packaged, preserved, flavor enhanced junk. See you at

What if you are vegetarian or vegan? More than half of that list won't apply...
