The following 8 statements are true and if you don’t believe them then you believe in one or more food myths.
All calorie sources are the same (Calories from proteins and fats will satiate you sooner and you won’t have to overeat which is likely if you get most of your calories from carbs and sugars.)
Eating much protein will not harm your kidneys and cause osteoporosis
A low fat diet is not the healthiest way to eat
Salt is not dangerous to eat unless you have high blood pressure
Saturated fat from meat and other sources does not raise your cholesterol nor does it cause heart attacks and death
Coffee in moderation is not bad for you
Eggs rich in cholesterol can’t give you heart disease
Low carb diets with much saturated fat does not increase your risk for heart disease and other chronic illnesses

CONCLUSION: Humans are omnivores who can eat natural proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Eat a great variety of all kinds of certified organic foods which can include fast food once in a while and eat only when you are hungry. Stop eating when you feel full and eat only about once a day. If you are not hungry don’t eat at all. You can not eat anything all day long and you will not starve or die!
EXPERIMENT with new foods and eat them if they taste good, are not artificially sweetened with added sugar, and are not overly processed. Don’t be afraid that new foods will poison you or make you sick in some way. Natural unprocessed food is not bad for you so don’t get paranoid about eating something new. Variety is the spice and health of life!!!!!!
