today we're going to tackle some common nutrition myths my colleagues here at Yule HQ have come up with some nutrition myths that they've commonly heard and they've written them down they're on on these cards here and I haven't read them before so I'm just going to read them out and then talk about each one okay the first one eating before bed will make you fat okay I can see where that one comes from your metabolic rate does change throughout the day in the morning it's a lot faster than evening it's a lot slower so ideally you want to be spreading your food throughout the day don't eat too late at night but there's no none of this you mustn't eat past 7:00 p.m. well because we all go to bed at different times so I don't see how that one rule can can fit everyone so and also it's not good to have food lasting at night when you're lying down and horizontally it doesn't help the side digestion so yeah you won't make you fat if you eat too late but try not to eat too much too late what we've got next all vegans are malnourished okay let's give a definition of the word malnourished first malnutrition is does not mean don't have enough food that is undernourished malnourished means you haven't got adequate amounts of one or more of the nutrients and there is a misconception that vegans are malnourished because they're not getting all the nutrients they need from different foods that's not true a vegan a varied plant-based diet can all get adequate of all nutrients they haven't got to worry about the effects of phytic acid on on iron absorption which I've discussed in an another video called anti nutrients because a plant-based diet is actually really high in iron and this more than compensates for that also vitamin c in a plant-based diet will help promote the iron absorption the other nutrient that vegans often are worried about not getting enough is protein it said that plant proteins aren't complete proteins or to a degree they're not but they do contain all the amino acid and if you could put more than one protein source together you will be getting plenty of all the essential amino acids to have a look at the next one fat free equals healthy you see the term fat free on food labels I don't like that term fat free doesn't mean healthy we need a good intake of fat unfortunately we've got the legacy of bad nutrition guidelines from the 1970s still lurking about that says fats bad it's not we need fat just the right types of fat another one carbs are bad so we're just you know some some people think that's bad other people think that carbs are bad well carbs are not bad providing you getting good quality fibrous starchy carbs regular throughout the day carbs like cereals and potatoes a great sources of energy we don't need carbs to live but they do provide an excellent source of energy okay if you have too many refined carbs and sugars that's not good you need to keep your sugar intake fairly low but it's the starchy carbs that are more slowly digested and absorbed give you that steady influx of energy and then a really useful dairy is the only way to get calcium dairy products like milk cheese are actually really rich sources of calcium and it is some well absorbed from those but also as a lot of plant foods that are rich in calcium seeds nuts even some of the green beige have a lot of calcium in it next one what is a superfood I don't like that term it doesn't mean anything so-called superfoods things like goji berries and sea buckthorn extract and so and so does this that and the other you know it doesn't really cut it with me as a lot of claims made about certain foods if you have good amounts of them they'll do wonders for you okay there are some some good nutritious but you'd have to eat an awful lot of them to get a good nutrition to me all food is super just enjoy your food another one salt is bad for you so is not bad for you salt is sodium chloride you need sodium and you need chloride they're both essential elect that we need in our diet you need a certain amount of sodium every day the problem is most of us are having too much so we told to cut down so generally some good advice is don't add salt to your food unless you really have to you'll get enough sodium if you eat a varied diet with plenty of fruit vegetables or even with some meat and animal products I hope you've enjoyed me tackling some of the nutrition myths today I certainly have if you've got any nutrition questions or nutrition myths that you'd like me to talk about why don't you post them below the video on youtube or on our forum which you can find on your calm

  1. Huel Benefits and Side Effects After 8 Days – Huel Vegan Meal Supplement Review

  2. Why vegan ? another angle good luck….remember vulnerable people food is the enemy, drink fluid instead…bollocks

  3. I've been having Hurl for about 2 years now and I love it, I still eat normal food but it's handy when it comes to lunch and a quick dinner if I'm lazy ……my shake will always contain a banana, peanut butter, chia seeds and water and milk mix …..this is a great nutritional supplement and keeps me trim and full of energy.

  4. It is fake food. High in fat, Too high in Protein. Low in Satiety. Striped of it fiber. Stop worrying about nutrition and just eat a Plant based diet high in intact starches, like beans, rice, potatoes, pasta.

  5. im impressed at the quantity of leucine 4 servings of huel as a day which is easily more than the dosage buying leucine supplements do, same for BCAA's supplements

  6. The only vitamin a vegan can't get from plant based diet is B12. However, B12 is grown in labs and almost all vegan alternative drinks and foods are fortified with said vitamin. As for calcium, just take a look at how much calcium soya beans contain.

    As a keen mountain climber and a long term vegan I've been looking for a liquid food supplement and came across this product. I'll place my order asap and give it a try.

  7. Love the videos!I'm a bodybuilder, just got started with Huel a few days ago and gotta say i love it!

  8. You fail to mention although many vegetables are high in iron they aren't as bio-available. Very simplistic answers for the less informed.

  9. thanks for the comments, always good to have urban myths "busted". however, i've a few customers who apparently "know what they are doing " with balanced diets and tell me that i shouldn't rely on HUEL, as it has way too much protein. really? i work stupid hours and just want space food pill, that will keep me healthy at an acceptable cost. now i'm in doubt.. help!

  10. Here's a myth that a couple of people have patiently explained to me:

    If you keep consuming more then the Nutrient Reference Value of a fat-soluble vitamin, even by just a little, the vitamin will accumulate in your body until it harms you.

  11. really appreciate all these videos. I watch them as soon as I can. thanks so much for all the help. 🍻
