Part 1:

Exposing the common calorie myths

Chapter 1:


In this chapter, we will explore the commonly prevailing diet and weight-loss related myths which are completely baseless.


‘It is fattening to eat rice, pasta, potatoes, and bread’


Fad diets are the culprits for dieters to shun foods high in carbohydrates and opt out instead for low-carb ones. However, there has been no link between weight gain and rich carb foods compared to any other food group.

Foods such as cereal grain, wheat, barley, rice, cornmeal, and oats make up products taken from grain. It is further divided into two sub groups such as refined grains and whole grains. The whole kernel of the grain including the endosperm, bran, and germ is called whole grains. Some great whole grain examples are pasta, brown rice, cereal, and whole-wheat bread. Removing the germ and bran by process of milling is called refined grains. Milling gives a longer shelf life and gives the grains a finer texture. The downside of the process is the removal of a lot of B vitamins, fiber, and iron.

It has been shown that risks for developing chronic diseases are lowered when whole grains become part of a diet. Recommendations coming from government guidelines encourage a diet that should be half-mixed with whole grains. This can be done by selecting bread made of 100 percent whole wheat rather than white bread and choosing brown rice over white rice.

Piling on the pounds is gained through calorie excess. Most of the time it’s the calorie boosters like fat that you love slathering on the carbs that adds on pounds such as making chips from potatoes by frying them, layering lots of butter on toasted bread, and pasta with rich and creamy sauces.


If you love carbs, opt out instead for the high-fiber ones such as whole wheat pasta, brown rice, jacket potatoes, and whole meal bread. The high-fiber content of these foods will make you feel full rather than the ‘white’ varieties. Learn to add as little fat as possible with food combinations such as cottage cheese to top off jacket spuds or make a tomato-based sauce for pasta.

Whole grains, fruits, and vegetables can be mixed with milk products that are low-fat or nonfat to make a satisfying meal.

Saturated fats, sugars, salt, and cholesterol-rich foods should be limited.

Low-fat proteins such as poultry, beans, nuts, eggs, lean meats, and fish are other great food options.

Limit your food intake, but up the ante in an exercise program.


‘Losing weight and keeping it off can be done with the help of fad diets’.


Losing weight and keeping it off will not be effectively given by fad diets. Fad diets often claim false promises of weight loss and keeping it off by doing away with certain types of food and reducing food intake. This method will make you lose weight at first since you will be reducing food intake. Yet, sticking with fad diets will be eventually wear you down which will make you give up on it. This will lead to regain the weight that was lost and more.

Your body needs nutrients that cannot be given by fad diets which makes them an unhealthy option. Gallstones, which are solid matter growths in the gallbladder and very painful, may be caused when a fad diet is used that could make you lose weight as rapid as 3 pounds in a week. Serious heart complications can also be developed when you go on a diet that consists of less than 800 calories a day.


Based on research studies, it is recommended that a weekly weight loss of ½ to 2 pounds is a lot safer which can be achieved through a combination of exercise and a diet that has reduced calories. The way to a good diet is to opt out for eating healthy foods. Eat small servings. Exercise daily. Combining these healthy habits will not only make you lose weight, it will keep it off too. These healthy habits also come with great benefits such as a reduced risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart conditions, and hypertension.


To lose weight, starches should be limited as they are fattening’.


Foods that are high in starch content have the surprising fact of being low in calories and fat. These foods include vegetables like yams and potatoes, bread, fruits, rice, beans, pasta, and cereals. They can only make you gain weight when they are eaten in big portions and topped off with high fat dressings such as mayonnaise, butter, and sour cream. Complex carbohydrates are foods that have high starch content and also the body’s vital source of energy.


According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the daily diet, depending on your calorie needs in order to lose weight should be made of 6 to 11 servings of the starch group which may include ½ cup of cooked cereal, pasta or rice, a slice of bread or an ounce of ready-to-eat cereal. Go for whole grains such as bran cereal, whole wheat bread, oatmeal, and brown rice, but lay off food toppings that are high in fat. Other good choices are high-fiber foods such as peas, vegetables, and beans.


‘Losing weight the healthy way is through a diet that consists of low-carbohydrates and high-protein’.


Going for a low-carbohydrate/high-protein diet for a long time and its possible long-term effects on health is an unknown fact. However, it can be stated that it is not a balanced meal to get your daily calories alone from foods rich in protein such as eggs, cheese, and meat. This kind of diet may be laden
