Myth: Natural sugars are better for you.

Sugars are sugars to your body.

Natural sugar refers to sugars that occur naturally in foods.  Sugar is found in nature in foods such as fruits.  Although fruit contains the much-vilified fructose that is found in high fructose corn syrup, it is in much lower levels in fruit than a soda.  The problem is not the source of the sugar but the refining.  


Myth: More water equals more weight loss.

Drinking more water will not shed off the pounds.

Many experts, myself included, recommend drinking more weight to help with weight loss.  The belief is that more water will increase calories burned and decrease calorie intake by improving satiety.  There is no doubt in my mind that water is vital for human existence.  It makes up the majority of your body.   The question is whether water is a magical cause of weight loss and will it make the pounds fly off.
