No more excuse for that mac & cheese with another nutrition myth busted by https://buff.ly/2HgjBua – Comfort food chases away the blues. Umm no it doesn’t. In a 2014 study in the journal Health Psychology, aptly titled “The Myth of Comfort Food,” researchers showed participants depressing films to “induce a negative effect.” Then they gave them either comfort food, foods that weren’t considered comfort foods, or no food at all. Result: The subjects got over their bad moods in equal time, regardless of whether or not they ate. Is feeling bad a good excuse for eating badly? Turns out, it’s not. Cheer up—and start slimming down.

NUTRITION MYTH from https://buff.ly/2HgjBua – ORANGES ARE THE BEST SOURCE OF VITAMIN C – Far more than a simple immune booster, vitamin C is an antioxidant that plays a host of important roles in your body. It strengthens skin by helping to build collagen, improves mood by increasing the flow of norepinephrine, and bolsters metabolic efficiency by helping transport fat cells into the body’s energy-burning mitochondria. But since your body can neither store nor create the wonder vitamin, you need to provide a constant supply. An orange is the most famous vitamin-C food, and although it’s a good source, it’s by no means the best. For 70 calories, one orange gives you about 70 micrograms of vitamin C. Here are five sources with just as much vitamin C and even fewer calories⠀ — Papaya, ¾ cup, 50 calories⠀ — Brussel’s sprouts, 1 cup, 40 calories⠀ — Strawberries, 7 large fruit, 40 calories⠀ — Broccoli, ½ stalk, 25 calories⠀ — Red Bell Pepper, ½ medium pepper, 20 calories
