Figuring out what to eat can be a real head-scratcher. The rules change almost daily. When all else fails, people tend to consult social media or the internet….which is obviously a great place to get nutritional advice, right?
I scoured the internet for some of the most laughable pieces of nutrition advice, and here’s a sampling of what I came up with:
- Only eat fruit before noon….note the url is iamnotobese.com, which seems totally legit and credible, amiright?
- Or how about this trend…
because only eating lemons is obviously going to purify and detoxify your body. Oh wait, it’s your kidneys and liver that do that job. You’re torturing yourself for nothing if you follow this diet.
- Then there’s this…
Do you seriously believe that our bodies “can’t process” or “can’t digest” wheat? Pleeeeease don’t fall for the hype.
- Here’s a gem: Don’t Eat Any One Food (Except for Veggies) More Than Once Per Day…LOL
- Sugar is toxic…[eats cookie and lives – gasp!]
