Unless you’re replacing your morning coffee with kale juice, dragging yourself out of bed at 5am for another punishing workout and spending your entire Sunday afternoon preparing food for the week, these days it can feel like you’re just not trying hard enough to be healthy. But that's not the case...
Swearing off sugar has become almost a religion in the last few years, as sugar has started copping the blame for everything from obesity to autoimmune disease. There's no doubt that, in general, we're eating (and drinking) far too much sugar. But is demonising sugar really necessary?
Juice cleanses or detoxes appear to offer a perfect solution; in the prescribed three to seven days you can supposedly lose weight and do a total 180 in terms of your health -- who wouldn't sign up for that? Except, unfortunately, that's not what really happens...
I spend a lot of time debunking nutrition myths, which range from the partly true to the completely ridiculous. While some of these can admittedly be entertaining, it's also frustrating that so many people are given inaccurate nutrition information that they believe, and even follow, for years to come.
