Biggest Nutrition Myths

Separating nutrition fact from fiction can be difficult…

This week alone I got 3 questions that I thought deserved repeating …

…and we want to hear your most pressing nutrition/weight loss questions.

Here are 3 questions from people with very different backgrounds.

23 year old Professional Athlete: "I heard apples and bananas have too much sugar, so I haven't been eating them.  I need to lose weight, what should I eat?"

Early 40's Stay at Home Mom of 4: "I have this pooch around the middle I can't get rid of — what time of day do I need to stop eating carbs?"

Late 30's, surgeon, wife, no kids: "I work really long hours so am exhausted and rarely have time to eat.  How much caffeine is too much?"

Great questions.  Answers to come this week.

What are your most pressing nutrition and weight loss questions?

    How bad are artificial sweeteners? Do you avoid them all? Any tips on how to get away from diet coke? I find I crave the caffeine as a lift and can't seem to get through lunch without one.

    I'm planning a new diet for myself that will have a daily caloric intake that is 500 calories below my Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). The hardest part is determining my BMR. The calculators I've found online give widely varying results, differing by over 1000 calories. What's the best, most reliable way to find my BMR?
