Debunking 7 health myths

Image
You’ve Always Heard That…
1. You Shouldn’t Cut Off the Bread’s Crust. It’s Full of Vitamins. The truth is: In a 2002 German study, researchers found that the baking process produces a novel type of cancer-fighting antioxidant in bread that is eight times more abundant in the crust than in the crumb. That said, it’s more important to serve whole-wheat bread, with or without the crust, because it’s all around higher in nutrients, such as fiber, says New York City nutritionist Keri Glassman, author of The O2 Diet). Make sure the ingredients list “100 percent whole-wheat flour.” Breads simply labeled “wheat” are usually made with a mixture of enriched white flour and whole-wheat flour and have less fiber.
2. If You Go Out With Wet Hair, You’ll Catch a Cold. The truth is: You will feel cold but will be just fine health-wise, says Jim Sears, a board-certified pediatrician in San Clemente, Calif., and a co-host of the daytime-TV show The Doctors. He cites a study done at the Common Cold Research…

18 Surprising Dairy-Free Sources of Calcium

Here’s a list of foods and beverages filled with calcium (no cows required!), along with recipes to help make them an everyday occurrence in a variety of meals.




Natural Calcium
1. Sardines: 321 mg (32% DV) in about 7 sardines fillets  There’s nothing fishy about sardines — they are one of the healthiest fish to munch on! Along with calcium, they also provide a hefty dose of omega 3’s and vitamin D. Try adding them to a Greek salad or eat em straight out of the can.
2. Canned Salmon: 232 mg (23% DV) in ½ can with bones (which provides the calcium!)  To avoid putting a dent in the wallet, canned salmon is a great way to go. Here’s the catch: It’s the bones in canned salmon that hold all the calcium, so they need to be mashed up right along with the salmon meat for all the benefits! But don’t get turned off just yet — the canning process softens the bones so they easily break apart and are unnoticeable when mixed in with the rest of the can’s contents. For a boost of calcium and omega 3’s, tr…

Metabolism myths

Image
It’s seems like every fitness-expert wannabe has a website proclaiming he knows the secret way to turn your body into a fat-incinerating blast furnace.

Yeah, right.

Some myths about boosting metabolism are so prevalent that they’ve been repeated again and again via best-selling fitness books and popular magazines. You’ll hear personal trainers and nutrition counselors spew this information, as well.

Don’t believe it.

Here is a harsh, cold smack in the face for you: There are no secret tricks to boost metabolism.
Granted, we are talking about resting metabolism -- the calories you burn when you’re not active.

Getting active definitely revs things up temporarily, but thinking that all these other tricks you can employ are going to cause your body to burn a bunch of extra calories while you sleep or eat Cheetos or watch porn is a myth.

In reality, the act of getting in shape and, specifically, losing weight will cause your resting metabolism to go down. If you go from overweight, dou…
