Top 10 Nutrition Myths

I subscribe to e-mail alerts. is a website geared towards people with active/athletic lifestyles; you'll find training tips, nutrition guides, a little bit of everything fitness. Every now and again I will get articles about various health and fitness related topics sent to my inbox. This morning, the Top 10 Nutrition Myths were waiting for me in my e-mail and wow was I surprised.

Some of these myths shocked me...for example; for years I have been told by friends, parents, and Oprah to never eat anything after 8:00 PM; if you eat after 8:00, you will get fat. But after reading this article, that is certainly not the just have to read it to believe it.

This article also covers other topics like the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids, the root of food cravings and white vs. dark bread. These myths are skewed towards the female audience, but some can be taken across the gender lines.

Have a look and let us know what you think, you might be just as surprised as I was.
