More myths

As you know, we have discussed a lot of things regarding myths surrounding people with eating disorders.

But I want to focus on another myth. The myth of healthy eating and/or weight loss.

Examples of myths:
  • Low calorie food is healthier because it's low calorie
  • Overweight people are obviously unhealthy
  • The longer you wait between meals, the skinnier you'll get
  • It's not ok to eat after working out, you're just gaining weight
  • Weighing yourself every day is good for keeping track of your health and weight
  • "I eat this because it's healthy" (ex: apples)
  • "I don't eat this because it's unhealthy" (ex: chips)
  • Skinny people are happier
  • Exercising in the morning is the best
  • Once you are at your goal weight, everything in life will be good
