The 10 “Nutritional Myths” presented by Dr. Stanger, which, based on scientific studies, she maintains are actually false, include:

  1. “If a little is good, more is better.
  2. A little bit can’t hurt.
  3. You need a special [animal-based] source or protein in your diet.
  4. Carbs raise insulin levels, while protein lowers it.
  5. Soy is the source of most dietary estrogen.
  6. Cow’s milk is the best source of calcium.
  7. Calcium is what makes your bones strong.
  8. Fish or fish oil is the best source of Omega-3.
  9. Grilling animal foods makes them healthy.
  10. We should dissect our food into protein, fat, and carbs, and strive to include the correct proportion of each in our diet.
