New You Health Tip: Learn the truth about popular health tips.

There is rampant confusion about what is healthy and what is not; what will help you lose weight and what will not. But what is the truth? Here we debunk a few popular myths.

‘Low Fat’ Foods are Healthier than Non Fat Counterparts: The fat found in tropical oils and meats help promote healthy brain function and regulate proper hormone production.

Eating Eggs Raises Cholesterol:
Pasture-raised eggs from healthy chickens are a source of protein and good cholesterol. According to Natural News, consistently removing the yolk is a mistake, as one needs to eat an entire egg in order to reap the nutritional benefits.

Use Agave Nectar or Honey Instead of Table Sugar: In most cases, agave nectar and honey are just as refined and unhealthy as table sugar. Most agave nectars and honey contain high levels of fructose. The exception to this rule occurs in 100% pure raw honey, unprocessed and locally sourced.

All Red Meat is Unhealthy: Meat from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows has similar benefits to wild-caught salmon. On the contrary, factory farmed red meat which is high in pro -inflammatory omega 6 fatty acids is still unhealthy.
