5 myths about healthy eating

You do not need to eat for one meal first, second and third, – this was reported in an interview with the chief doctor of the national team of Latvia mārtiņš Pulveris. According to him, many preconceived ideas about how food should be – no more than a myth or error.

Myth four: the more fruits and berries! It is believed that its regular consumption makes the food more healthy. But in the cold season on the shelves of too many imported products, which processed a large number of chemicals. For food it is better to choose the products of the region in which the person lives – even if it will be ugly roots.

The fifth myth: smoothies are helpful. Smoothies represent a milled mixture of plant foods and nuts, to drink, they became one of the trends of healthy nutrition. The doctor is skeptical about such a habit. According to him, after grinding in a blender substances from products are absorbed instantly, and recycling becomes for the body this overload.
