Nutrition Myths


This week on Channel 9’s Bridge Street talk show, CNYDA member Kelly Springer, MS, RD, CDN joined the hosts for a chat at the beginning of the show.

Kelly spoke about the following nutrition myths: 1. Myth: fat is bad Fact: we need fat in our diets to absorb fat soluble vitamins such as; A, D, E and K. However, fat is really dense in calories and a little goes a long way! 2. Myth: Shrimp and Eggs raise your bad (LDL) cholesterol Fact: shrimp and eggs are wonderful sources of lean protein, B vitamins, iron, and vitamin D. Shrimp only has 120 calories in 4 ounces and .3 grams of saturated fat. 3. Myth: we need to take supplements to stay healthy Fact: “Real” food is always the best way to get in nutrients. With a balanced diet it is very easy to get what your body needs via food. Eating nuts, berries, eggs, fish can provide your body with what you need.
