Let's blow some away
1. I'll start off with a common one that gets mentioned to me quite alot. Protein and what is and what isn't true. Protein does not harm the bones or kidneys of otherwise healthy individuals. Protein is the building block of muscle. Ensuring you get adequate protein in your diet is key to mainaining or changing your body composition. And as we age it is vital for our longevity and to decrease our risk of frailty and sarcopenia. Guidelines recommend that we aim for around 1.2g protein per kg of bodyweight i.e. 80kg adult = 96g protein.
2. Eggs, eggs and more eggs. Eggs are not bad for you. Yes eggs contain cholesterol but your body also makes cholesterol. The impact of dietary cholesterol (cholesterol in foods you eat) has little to no impact in most individuals and also the micronutrients you get along with the cholesterol in eggs is beneficial for you.
3. Eating before bed won't make you gain fat...unless; it creates a calorie surplus. If you end up binging on a late night snack with no control just before you go to bed then a couple of things could happen. You may have a bad night sleep (which can lead to over consumption of calories the next day) and/or you over eat on your needed calories. If you consume less calories than you use on a daily basis you will lose fat. If you consume more calories than you use on a daily basis you will gain fat. When you eat these calories doesn't matter. And I also cannot confirm or deny if this late night snack is cheese you will or will not get nightmares.
