Portions don’t matter, eating fat makes you fat – shun such myths if you’re going on a diet, say experts.
Anita Mirchandani, a registered dietician, and chef Ganesh Krishnamoorthy, Co-Founder, Epigamia and Drums Food International, seek to bust some myths around dieting.
* Portions don’t matter: In fact, portions matter the most. It is important to understand what the true portions are for adults and for children. Overeating is one of the main contributors to the obesity epidemic.
* Avoid pasta: You don’t have to avoid anything unless you have an allergy or intolerance. Pasta in moderation is completely acceptable. If you want to avoid gluten or increase nutrition quality, try whole grain varieties or spelt pasta.
