Two registered dietitian nutritionists debunk 19 of the most common myths about diets. They explain why those with lactose intolerance can actually eat some cheeses. They also debunk the idea that red wine is good for your heart. Turns out, just because it’s made of fruit doesn’t mean it’s good for you. And they share the rough calculation to find out how much water you should drink every day.

Dietitian Nutritionists Debunk 19 Diet Myths | Debunked


  1. TheCosplaying ExVegan on June 15, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Too much water in one sitting makes me feel dizzy

  2. DaRhi_Yis on June 15, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I think the bean myth is more from that certain beans you can buy at the store are poisonous until cooked properly. So it’s not really a myth, just blown out of proportion.

  3. chris gamer on June 15, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    if only the food companies processed the food in a way that is healthy . by removing carbs , not gluten nor fat nor calories

  4. Nick Callus on June 15, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    I don’t eat dairy and have broccoli three times a week and my calcium is perfect ✌️

  5. Amado Daniel Bontea on June 15, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Dr STEVEN GUNDRY says Beans are toxic!

  6. LaTonya Newsome on June 15, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    I am so glad you talked about meat. I’m so sick of this vegan movement. Most of the time people who go vegan feel better because they cut out bad foods. There’s some who go vegan but still eat a lot of carbs. You’re defeating the purpose.

  7. Ben Hubery on June 15, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    That is bad science. Coffee is a diuretic, but it doesn’t really make you need the toilet any more than the same volume of liquid in tea or just plain water. It does cause a slight increase in water loss, but this is marginal compared to the volume you’re consuming.

    This misinformation is what Dietitians are meant to be fighting against.

  8. Janette Biggs on June 15, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I may not physically need milk but mentally it’s needed!

  9. Killerbunny1619 on June 15, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    beans can be toxic if you eat them a lot?

  10. Dav 24 on June 15, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Myth 5. That was the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.

  11. Yakziv on June 15, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    I never met a potato that I didn’t like. LOL

  12. C. Carter on June 15, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    I feel like while the scientific research advances by the day the public understanding of nutriotional science is going backwards or at least stays the same. There is so much corruption in the food sector that no ordinary person can see through it without really doing some proper research on their own.
    Most of the people who actually have a proper scientific understanding and have read the literature will tell you the same actual facts about nutrition but then there are people with no scientific background who will just decide what is the best diet in their opinion and will just propagate that to the public. All the companies that try to make their processed food "sound" healthy are yet another problem that’s been around for such a long time already.
    It is really frustrating to watch.

  13. Corrie De Beer on June 15, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Is puking on your shoes the only way I can prove to you that lactose intolerant people should not eat cheese?

  14. Carol Simpson on June 15, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    To be fair, beans can cause toxic fumes lolol

  15. Jan S on June 15, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I wonder why this stuff is not taught in school. This is the most important thing you can learn in your life.

  16. Sapien's Playground by Maxim Pruchnewski on June 15, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    So lol myth 18 was obviously not debunked because you can’t debunk that animal foods are healthy and part of a good diet

  17. AI on June 15, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    That’s right, you need raw milk. >:)

    Gordon Ramsay would be yelling at you for suggesting frozen food is OK. You donkeys! Where is the lamb sauce? (Great video BTW)

  20. T A on June 15, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Dairy 🥛 is a total scam – No human being Needs to drink 🐮 cow milk, or consume any dairy product!

  21. Gimpler Da Happenin on June 15, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Beans – people can react badly to the lectins in beans.

  22. Alan Flores on June 15, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    B12 is not found in meat naturally
    It’s injected to them and it’s commonly used as supportive treatment and appetite stimulant for sick or convalescing animals so there you go

  23. Briansgate on June 15, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    When I was in college, we had to pick a topic to write a short essay on for our English class. I picked why milk is bad for you. In the research, I uncovered a lot of stuff I never knew.

  24. Krizzmin on June 15, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Parmesan is not totally lactose free. It’s actually about 2%. For a lot of lactose intolerant people, they can still eat it, but there are people who can’t handle lactose in any capacity that will still get sick from it.

  25. Michael Forton on June 15, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Animals flesh is fortified with B12 as are many animal substitutes. As you get older, you may lose the ability to metabolize B12 efficiently, so it’s always a good idea to take a B12 supplement.

  26. Corrie De Beer on June 15, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Telling people with dairy allergies that they can eat cheese is negligent to the point where it should be a crime. WTF is wrong with you saying lactose intolerant people cannot eat cheese is myth, Christ almighty what poppycock

  27. diane ridley on June 15, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I always wince when people describe "breakfast". The word itself describes what you eat first after the extended sleeping interval where you litterally cannot eat; you break that fast. So, you can eat "breakfast" at 8p if your schedule is structured as such.

    I eat bacon anytime I want.

  28. Brian Hildebran on June 15, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Quality of food is more important than quantity. Raw milk far more healthy (depending on what the cow/goat/sheep eats) than pasteurized milk. Organically grown fruits and veggies higher quality than conventional because of the lack of agrochemicals used to grow them. Meat/animal foods is an essential part of any diet. Plant-based or vegan diet occurs nowhere in History. It is only due to modern logistics of grocery stores, etc. that anyone can maintain a vegan diet because plant nutrients have low bioavailability to humans and require a high quantity of intake. Nutrients in animal foods/meat are highly bioavailable and require only a moderate intake. Fruits and veggies are fine seasonally but shouldn’t be the focus of any diet for optimal health.

  29. Candy on June 15, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    A coworker didn’t feed her mom fruits because she has diabetes and I wanted to smack her.

  30. Agent Exeider on June 15, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    One of the greatest myths as well as scams, was the removal of saturated fats from the American diet. Sat fats served a function, they create the feeling of satiety and their removal from the diet and subsequently replaced with by sugar effectively turned foods into essentially an addictive drug and sugar as most know is the cause of diabetes, obesity and heart disease which ironically that’s the reason stated for removing saturated fats. There are more people dying of heart disease now then before. The study that made this damning judgement of Saturated Fats was based on bad science, the sample size was too small, the number of other life factors too great and so on, that this fact alone should disqualify the study, when you then add the possible manipulation of data where certain data was discarded because it didn’t follow the trend that was trying to be sold, you go from bad science to purposeful fraud. But even if you don’t believe the accusations, at the very least it’s bad science.

  31. Delgen1951 on June 15, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Oh ladies, I am sorry i get different messages form all sides, over my 70 years I have heard the falling, Fat Bad, Saturated bat bad, fat good sat. fat good, bread bad, fish bad, milk bad, milk good and so on. All I can say i do not think nutritionists, as a science know what they are talking about, in two years it will be the total reverse of what you are saying. So just leave me along. I feel that the only safe good food is wet stale shredded cardboard, so no don’t I have no trust for this "science" so eat your cardboard and I will eat my baked potatoes.

  32. raig s on June 15, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Lol lost me at ‘if you spend long amounts of time not eating, then your metabolism doesn’t know to do its job’. Doesn’t recent research suggest this in itself is a myth?

  33. Lxst Yexr on June 15, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Most of this myth are companies propaganda to sell more of their products

  34. Paragrin on June 15, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    beans are toxic if not cooked.

  35. Sahina yiasoumi on June 15, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    2 straight talkers and no bullshit yay👍🌺

  36. Lahvi's Delivery Service on June 15, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Every time im om my period i crave raw red meat, i never act on it but i will want like filet mignon and get it as rare as possible. I assume its because i have low iron lol

  37. Brandon Bien on June 15, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Dried beans can be toxic if not cooked to boiling. This may be the origin of that myth.

  38. D Ayala on June 15, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Thank you for this video! I’m SO tired of people acting like whole-foods are the enemy!

  39. Steve Parker on June 15, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I’ve tried vodka on my cereal but it’s just not the same. It’s FREAKING AWESOME !!!!

  40. April Taylor on June 15, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Dairy is not an essential food group..

  41. Gaming Geckos on June 15, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Fun fact: Raw kidney beans are indeed toxic! Cooking the bean deactivates it, though.

  42. Ivan Ostrava on June 15, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Neither of these individuals are fit themselves.

  43. Aiman Rusyaidi on June 15, 2021 at 11:36 pm


  44. Donnie Jax on June 15, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I don’t eat carbs and I don’t crave carbs or really any of carbs.

  45. szpoti on June 15, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Avoid MODERN fruit like a plague! It is true that fruits have loads of vitamins and nutrients, but the price in fructose intake you’re paying is just scandalous! Eat veggies instead. And above all – do not drink fruit juice – it’s void of any fibre whatsoever to buffer the tonnes of sugar you’re taking in.; plus, it’s pasteurised, thus has no nutritional value – pure sugar!

  46. Usagimaru1 on June 15, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Can we stop using "it comes from the Earth"… Like everything.

  47. sandy thamtono on June 15, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    carnivore : Im healthier than you are!! wanna try me?

  48. mtktm on June 15, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Beans – certain beans can cause digestive irritation if prepared improperly.
    ie, not rehydrating/soaking them, and undercooking them. They contain lectin, which breaks down, when cooked.

  49. Francisco Narvaez on June 15, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    I heard to much water, is bad for you. I heard, you flush your electrolytes when you start peeing to much.
