Nicci asks: What food myth have you bought into?

You people are missing the fact that peanut butter is talked about in the first paragraph. Just because there is not a number next to it does not mean it is not being counted in the article. As my 3 year old granddaughter says "Duh, what ever". Please show as much interest in reading as you seem to show about your diet.

The greatest food myth is that the calcium in cows milk "does a body good"!

I have bought into all the above food myths with the exception the potato one. Fat equals fat deposits so eating plenty of fat can only lead to fat deposits. I recently embarked on a fat free life change and I have lost 10kg in 6 months. With no extra effort! I eat lots of carbohydrates but without the fat that comes with it e.g bread with jam instead of butter or peanut butter. I avoid all meat products with the exception of chicken breast and avoid all low fat foods and instead opt for fat free or anything with less than 3% fat content. If you do this you eventually realise that nothing in the stores is edible and you start to make fresh nutritious healthy fat free food.I do not buy this whole healthy fat story - I have instead bought into cramming as much vegetable and carbohydrate and fruit as I can into my day and the results are amazing! This is after years of dieting and starving myself on low GI or high protein diets or alternatively eating very little and denying my body nutrients. I also stack up on fat free diary as often and aas much as I can.

There are 5 on there... peanut butter being the first:) A good trick when eating eggs: if you're frying them you can "squish" (I like to say) some of the yolk out of the side and toss it. Kind of like using egg beaters but way better.
