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.
