Common dietary myths:

All fats are bad for us

Eating after 8 p.m. can cause you to gain weight

Muscle can turn to fat

Low-fat and no-sugar foods are always low in calories

Health snacking tips:

Eat spicy foods. They help fire up your metabolism, and because they are so intensely flavorful it's tough to eat them in excess, helping you avoid overeating.

Substitute applesauce for vegetable oil in baked goods

Try hummus in place of mayo on sandwiches and salads

Use yogurt instead of sour cream on potatoes and dips.

Chew slowly!
