    Bad Weight Loss Advice

    There is a lot of unhealthy advice regarding how to lose or maintain weight. Here is the advice you must ignore.

    Eat All The Healthy Food You Want

    Feel free to snack your way through a daily bag of chopped veggies but be mindful of the bad advice that you can eat all the healthy food you desire. Vegan dessert is healthy but is often high in sugar. Cashews are healthy, but high in calories and fat. Coconut water is healthy, but one or two servings a day is enough.

    Last but not least, be leery of any extreme diet plan based on deprivation opposed to nutrition—as well as diets that eliminate food groups as our body requires the nutrients in all food groups. This includes carbs. Moderation yes, elimination—no.
