Do You Need Nutrition Advice?


Many of us think we have a relatively good understanding of healthy eating. But how do you know for certain? Maybe you need a little advice on specific products. Or maybe you need some advice on meal planning to make healthy eating easier. Or maybe you really have no idea what the right foods are anymore! Take this quiz to find out if getting a little advice would help you.

  1. True or False: Fat is bad for me.

2. True or False: Carbs are bad for me.

3. True or False: I should eat a lot of protein.

See the answers below. If you answered true to any of these, you may want to check in with a nutrition specialist.

Answers:

  1. False- Fat is not bad for us! However, we do want to make sure we are eating the right fat – avocados, fish oils, nuts, etc.

  2. False – Carbs are also not bad for us as long as we are eating the natural and unprocessed carbs. These include vegetables and fruits, and sometimes sweet potatoes or legumes depending on your dietary needs.

  3. False – Protein is important for us, but eating too much can lead to gaining weight. Most normally active people only need to eat about 0.8-1.2 grams of protein per body weight a day. This amounts to about the size of your palm. We also want to make sure we are getting the correct lean and natural proteins such as chicken, fish and other non-red meat based items.
