Fitness Queen Shilpa Shetty Busts 5 Common Dieting Myths
We all have decided to go on a diet at some point and ended up falling for some myths. So, FIT decided to debunk the most common diet myths with the fitness Goddess of Bollywood, Shilpa Shetty Kundra.
She is out with her second book ‘Diary of a Domestic Diva’. This new book tells you how to cook healthy yet yummy food. The actor is always giving us fitness goals, so take her tips seriously!
1. Diet sodas are a healthier option when on diet
No sodas are healthy, according to Shilpa. Diet or normal, soda contains sugar which one should avoid when on a diet.
Diet sodas contain aspartame, which is an artificial sweetener that weakens the bones of an individual.
2. Egg yolks increase cholesterol
This is a very common myth and often people do restrict themselves and eat just the white of an egg. Shilpa debunks the myth by telling us the use of an egg as a whole.
3. All nutrition bars are healthy
Shilpa strongly suggests we avoid synthetic nutrition bars as much as possible. The artificial nutrition bars contain sugar which is not healthy for intake.
4. Eating ghee and rice makes one fat
According to Shilpa, this is one of the most common and ridiculous myths. For her, ghee is one of the most essential part of the meal and helps in digesting rice.
Ghee also helps in keeping the bones strong.
5. All calories are the same
Calories can never be the same, they can be put under the categories of good calories and bad calories. The kind of calories we intake really leaves an impact on the body. Though calories from healthy food and junk food can be the same in count but their impact on the body is very different.
