If it seems like all I do is poke holes in Dr. Oz’s penchant for glorifying mouse studies as the next miracle weight loss cure, here’s a refreshing change.  For once, I agree with Dr. Oz on all five myths about weight loss.  Simplified, yes, but pretty much a straight nod of the head from me on each one.

Five Myths.  Summarized From Dr. Oz’s Five Myths Post.

1. Diet Soda Helps You Lose Weight – only in “my body doesn’t respond to sweet tastes” land.

2. The More Calories You Cut, the More Weight You Lose – at some point the body down regulates.

3. Pasta Makes You Fat – just pasta 24/7 maybe, but not just a bit of pasta.

4. Eating After 8 p.m. Will Make You Put on Weight-what you tend to eat after 8pm might, but the time of day doesn’t.

5. Reduced Fat Foods Are Healthier Alternatives- reduced fats sell more bags, because you eat more.
