In this video, dietitian Kate Turner discusses common myths about nutrition.

0:23 Myth #1: Eating fat will make you gain fat
Are low-fat foods are better than you? Are eggs and red meat are bad for you? Many people have heard that eating foods high in fat will make you fat, that there is a link between diet and heart disease and that dietary fats are the enemy. So are fat-free and low-fat foods healthier for you? Many times they contain higher amounts of sugar, which is detrimental to your health. Some people say to eliminate all fats from your diet, but you should distinguish between healthy fat and unhealthy fat. Saturated fat like butter is linked to higher cholesterol and unsaturated fat like olive oil is beneficial for your health because it allows the beneficial nutrients to enter the cell membrane and pushes out the unwanted waste. Saturated fat can be found in red meat and dairy such as milk, butter, cheese, ice cream, and most processed foods. Unsaturated fat can be found in most Whole Foods such as avocado, salmon, nuts, seeds, and olives. Does eating fat make you gain weight? The short answer is no. Fat has more calories than protein or carbohydrates, but that is not what causes weight gain. What causes weight gain is consuming foods that are high in fat and high in carbs like potato chips and French fries and then not moving your body enough so it can’t use that energy as fuel.

0:35 Myth #2: Eggs are bad for you
Cholesterol is a fatty substance that travels through our blood. Studies have shown that when blood cholesterol is high, our risk for heart disease and stroke is high also. USDA then capped dietary cholesterol at less than 2 eggs per day. LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol is commonly known as bad cholesterol while HDL (high-density lipoprotein) is commonly known as good cholesterol. It’s important that our liver produces and regulates cholesterol. When you eat eggs your liver balances out. Unsaturated fats. A diet of 1-3 eggs per day has no impact on LDL cholesterol levels. Reduce high saturated fat foods like bacon and cheese.

6:05 Myth #3: Red meat is bad for you
There is some truth to this but not all red meat is bad for you. Processed meats carry the greatest risk for cancer. They are considered a carcinogen. Processed meat is meat that has been modified with curing, smoking, or salting such as hot dogs, pepperoni, salami, sausages, bacon, deli meat, and canned meats. They are also higher in salt and fat than unprocessed meat. Unprocessed meat includes steak, pork chops, lamb shanks and other cuts that have not been preserved in this way. Just a small amount per day of processed meat can increase your risk of cancer than 18% which is 4 strips of bacon and 1 hot dog per day. Opt for grass-fed red meat as much as possible.
