In our book GOLD STANDARD OF THIN (to be released in January 2010) we expose two diet myths: The first myth, Eating after 8 pm packs on pounds, was proven not to matter, say scientists at Oregon Health and Science University. Enjoy an evening snack. The calories in food has nothing to do with time of day! A second myth, Carbs are fattening, is busted because whole grains, seeds, fruits, and vegetables are essential to good health. Plus, foods high in fiber fill us up. It is true that sugary-fatty white flour products and snacks are fattening. No matter how colorful cookies and cakes are prepared, they don’t fit in the “eat the rainbow” scenario!
