Oh, please, please tell me you still don’t believe these next three myths. They’re pervasive suckers, though, so now is your time to purge them from your life if they’re lurking around.
Myth: There is a perfect diet, workout, amount of sleep you should get, etc.
No one thing will change everything. Also no one thing will work for everyone.
Myth: Fat is fattening--and bad for you, too
This one just won't die. Even though the research that led to the low- and non-fat craze has been shot down--and the tide is slowly turning--the media still regularly associates eating fat with being unhealthy.
Myth: Fasting is dangerous
How did we become so removed from the natural rhythms and cycles of nature, which we are a part of, that the idea of going without food for 12-16 hours is scary?
It's actually the opposite of dangerous when it comes to health benefits--it's very good for you! Digestion takes a lot of energy. By giving yourself periodic breaks from that process, your body can deal with healing and rebuilding and creating vitality.
