Have you fallen for these health myths ???

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Never eat after 7 p.m.

Lifting weights makes women bulky.

All true

HA! All myths – persistent suckers that have been around for ages.

Let’s have a little fun and break ‘em down.

Where did this one come from about breakfast being so important?

Maybe back in the farming culture of previous centuries?

At least then, people needed a lot of fuel to get them through physically demanding mornings. But nowadays, it’s more important to make smart food choices, pay attention to what you’re eating, and listen to your body than to choke down a big plate of chow with the sunrise.

There’s nothing magic about the clock striking 7. Some studies suggest eating a lot right before bed can contribute to weight gain. And the intermittent fasting trend calls for a period of abstinence from food, often starting after the evening meal. There’s different research to support every ideology, but at the end of the day, how late you eat doesn’t matter as long as you’re not in caloric excess.
