Overlooked Aspects About Dieting

By Katherine Crawford

The field of nutrition is a never ending source of new information. As more and more research is conducted, the knowledge base keeps on growing.

The bad news is that a lot of vital information can get lost in the vast sea of knowledge.

So here are some commonly overlooked things about dieting:

1. Food quality affects more than just energy: When you are trying to lose weight, the quality of food you eat will not only affect energy levels, but it will also affect how many calories go towards fat cells. So eating good food isn’t just about energy or health, it’s about weight gain.

2. Fat is inside you, not just under your skin: Most people forget that fat is inside of them because they can only see the fat that is under their skin. Even worse, you can be extremely skinny and very unhealthy if you have lots of fat around your organs.

3. There is no benefit to completely eliminating saturated fat: No peer reviewed research has clearly shown a benefit from completely eliminated saturated fat. So please do not waste mental energy or time trying to completely eliminate saturated fat from your diet.

4. Increases in blood sugar decrease active tissue nutrition: Your active tissues are muscles, organs and brain. When you spike blood sugar these structures shut down their nutrient entry ways as a protective mechanism. Then end result is more calories going to fat cells.

5. There is no benefit to eating ultra low levels of calories: In fact, no one should ever go below the 1200 calorie mark. You see, there is no adult on the planet that has a basal metabolic rate lower than this. In other words, if you eat less than this you can expect to have some serious health consequences.

6. Powdered fiber is not good for you: The best way to get your fiber is with solid food, not supplements. In fact, some research has shown that supplementing with fiber can actually increase cancer rates. So make sure you stick with whole foods here.

There is always going to be new information about nutrition. So make sure you don’t obsess too much about the details, but make sure you take action on a system that works for you!
