When someone asks you if it is bad to get snacks or eat after dinner, the answer is indefinite because it is not always true. Sometimes, your supposed bad diet habits could be good ones.
Here are some bad diet myths that I will be discussing in this blog.
Some people frown upon the idea of snacking because some might have given them the idea of it being wrong. To them, if you’ve had 3 meals a day that’s all you gotta have. In addition, they also think that their appetite might be spoilt if they snack.
The thing is, people who don’t snack get hungry during mealtime, and because of it, they have the tendency to overeat during mealtime. On the other hand, if they give snacking a try it can actually help in controlling their weights with the right snacks, of course. This can keep their hunger at bay and might lessen the urge to eat more. Take a look at fruits and veggies for your in-between meals.
Often you would hear people tell you not to eat or snack on something after you’ve had your last meal – however, this is not always a bad idea. When you do it out of habit, it’s a problem, but when you are just particularly hungry you aren’t usually in trouble. For example, if you’ve had an early dinner and you’re staying up for something and you got hungry, then, by all means, go eat.
Eating the same thing every single day
Variety is what makes life pretty exciting, so mixing it up with your diet is a great idea. This way, you won’t feel sick of eating the same thing over and over again and you’d be getting a lot of varied nutritious benefits when you aren’t set on eating the same thing every day. However, there are still people who think it’s pretty safe to eat the same thing every day – this is because they are already expecting things from what they consume in a day and they won’t be burdened with meal planning a lot. The main thing is, make sure to eat a well-balanced diet and you’re eating your fruits, veggies, proteins, and essential grains.
Not monitoring your weight
It’s important to monitor your weight from time to time. This is to make sure your diet and exercise are both working in your favor or if something needs to be changed. Plus, it’s always fun to track your progress, right? It can be pretty motivating as well.
