Myth 1: Fruits have the highest vitamin content.
Vitamins are a large family with many members. Fruits may be rich in some of them, but they also have their “shortcomings”. For example, fruits do not contain fat-soluble vitamins, and most fruits have limited vitamin C content.
Myth 2: Eat more fruits to lose weight.
Although the calorie of fruit is lower than that of rice by unit weight, but because of its good taste, it is easy to eat more. If you are not careful, your sugar intake will exceed the standard. This will not only fail to lose weight, it will even have an adverse effect.
Myth 3: Eat what you want.
Loquat fruits contain more organic acids and tannins, and some also contain highly active proteases. Eating at the wrong time may cause irritation and damage to the stomach.
For example, bananas, the content of magnesium is very high, eating too much on an empty stomach will cause an imbalance in the ratio of magnesium and calcium in the blood, which may have an inhibitory effect on the cardiovascular system. Generally, most fruits are suitable for eating about 1-2 hours before meals.
Misunderstanding 4: There is no harm in eating more.
It is advisable to consume about 200 grams of fruit per day. Most fruits have a high dietary fiber content, and eating too much can cause stomach pain and bloating. In addition, the elderly with gastrointestinal deficiency should not eat more citrus; people with poor stomach or constipation should eat less persimmon.
Some people will induce allergies if they eat pineapple. People who don’t eat gastrointestinal diseases and coagulation disorders are better. Bananas are high in sugar and potassium, and those with high blood sugar and those with renal insufficiency should eat less.
Misunderstanding 5: Fruits for meals, beauty and beauty.
The human body needs nearly 50 kinds of nutrients in order to survive. In particular, it needs more than 65 grams of protein and 20 grams of fat per day to maintain the regeneration and repair of tissues and organs. Fruits contain more than 85% moisture, but less than 1% protein. They contain almost no essential fatty acids and are far from meeting the nutritional needs of the human body.
Fruit contains less protein, fat, calcium, iron, etc. Taking fruits as meals for a long time will definitely cause insufficient intake of protein, lipids, etc., resulting in malnutrition and anemia.
Myth 6: Western fruits are more nutritious.
“Foreign fruit” has high transportation, packaging and storage costs and high selling prices. Imported fruits have begun to degrade nutrients during the journey, and the freshness is not ideal. In addition, because of long-distance transportation, fruits are often picked before they are fully ripe. Preservation by chemical agents may affect fruit quality. In order to look good, this kind of fruit may be treated with preservatives or waxed on the surface to keep its appearance bright and bright, but the nutritional content will still be gradually lost during transportation.
Myth 7: Fruits can replace vegetables.
Although fruits and vegetables have similar nutrition, fruits cannot replace vegetables. For example, the vitamin C content of cabbage and spinach is about 10 times higher than that of apples, peaches, and pears. But if you want to meet the recommended daily amount of vitamin C in the human body, you must eat 5 kg
