Nicci asks: What food myth have you bought into?


All these suggestions and "scientific proofs" are nice, but it's always controversial. Well, why did my great-grandmother (who ate anything that was available) live till 105 than? Her favorite was Sala (pig fat). It's not only what you eat. Your personality (mental state), the air you breath, how active you are, genetics and other factors (and food too) all account to how long you'll live. I have another relative (lucky me :)), 90 year old lady who smoked since her early 50's, and check this out: the reason why she took on smoking was her son's death! Now, go and figure! It sound like a typical "life shortening" situation, but instead proves to be on the contrary.
I wouldn't suggest anyone to start smoking based on this situation, but it does tell all of us something we should pay attention to, isn't it? Overall, I personally believe nervous system plays the main role in having healthier and longer life.

Peanut Butter
"Bad": Because it's high in fat.
Good: High in Moly and Poly unsaturated fats which are good for trying to lose weight.

there areno good or bad foods!!! There are good and bad food habits! That philosophy is harder to "swallow because the responsibility is on the eater not on the food. Foods are neutral- It is our use of the food that is good or bad. Wake Up!!

people say chocolate gives pimples and people say chocolate prevents pimples and makes you get smoother skin..but i think it's different for everyone..because for me, it was good for removing pimples and smoother skin, but my friend starts to break out when she eats chocolate confused

I am a vegan do you really want me to tell you what I think of these foods?

I am a vegan do you really want to know what I think? I like the comment on beef, people who care about their heart should avoid beef. No kidding sherlock! I do think people who don't care about their hearts deserve what they get whether it's heart disease, diabetes, etc.

What about grapefruit? How does it figure into diet and weight loss? I love red grapefruit and eat a whole fruit at one sitting.

it's been said that foods that have fat we need daily to help protect the lining of the brain. Is this true?
