Diet myths busted

* Coffee will help you lose weight: Yes, coffee does tend to suppress appetite. However, the quantity you need to do so would exceed the suggested daily limit, which then becomes unhealthy. In addition, too much caffeine could have a negative impact on the body in the form of dehydration and anxiety. Try not to exceed two caffeinated cups per day.

* Vitamins are a must: Not true. You don’t really need a multivitamin unless you’re pregnant, nursing or over 50. If you focus on a wholesome diet that integrates healthy fats such as Greek yogurt, nuts and seeds as well as whole grains, vegetables and fruits, you will achieve a varied vitamin and mineral intake.

* Eating fat makes you fat: Yes, it does, but only if you eat the wrong kind and in excessive portions. Good fats such as those found in avocados, Greek yogurt, nuts and seeds are beneficial to the body in many ways.
