Diet Myth Busters
If you’ve ever been perplexed by the contradictory news reports about healthy, and unhealthy, foods and drinks, then Diet Myth Busters is the report for you. It explores all the evidence and comes up with the definitive word across a range of foods and their health-giving qualities.
Subjects covered range from the best food for a good night’s sleep, whether fasting is good for us, the pros and cons of raw food, the importance of fatty foods, and if eating late puts on the weight.
Then we look at the best breakfast to start the day, how many alcoholic drinks we can drink safely, the nonsense of fortifying foods, the dangers of processed foods, and getting the balance right for EFAs (essential fatty acids).
Finally, we investigate the role of yoghurt for IBS sufferers, take a look at spelt—and tackle the thorny issue of supplements, and whether we need to take them.
