5 Nutrition Myths We’re Gonna Set Straight for You

Gluten-free doesn’t mean what you think

By Lindsay Champion, PureWow

Name a fad diet and we’re probably guilty of trying it. When you’re hearing a million different takes on one thing (hello, carbs), it’s tough to know what’s actually healthy and what’s just a marketing scheme. So to break things down once and for all, we asked New York City nutritionist Daniela Neman to separate fact from fiction.

Myth: Cold-Pressed Juice is the Best Way to Detox

The only way your body truly detoxes is through your liver, kidneys, intestinal tract and skin. If you’re sweating and going to bathroom every day, congrats, you’re detoxing! So if you really want to hit the reset button after a rosé-all-day weekend, eat minimally processed, highly nutritious foods (juice “detoxes” are often dangerously low in calories).

Myth: If You Want to Lose Weight, Cut Out All Processed Foods

“Processed” can mean a number of things, including fermentation, pre-washing and removing inedible parts of a fruit or veggie. So if you take all processed foods out of your diet, you’re cutting out pre-diced fruit, oats, almonds, yogurt and beans—foods that actually support a healthy diet.


Myth: Eating Six Small Meals a Day is Better Than Three

Look, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to meal plans. For most of us, six meals a day isn’t practical. But three meals a day with a couple of snacks is definitely doable. As long you’re not experiencing low blood sugar, headaches or fatigue, you do you, girl.

Myth: Gluten-Free Desserts are Healthier

Unless the GF dessert is fresh fruit, this just isn’t true. The main difference between gluten-free and traditional desserts is that wheat-based flour is swapped out for a gluten-free flour. The sugar, butter—all the indulgent stuff—is all the same.


Myth: If Bread Is 100 Percent Whole-Wheat, It’s Healthy

Most breads, even 100 percent whole-wheat breads, have more going on—including added sugar and salt. Check the label and look for less than 5g sugar and 100mg sodium. And as usual, avoid any tricky hard-to-pronounce additives.
