9) Fat-free and sugar-free means healthy. Ehh, not so much. There are a lot of foods that are low in fat but high in sugar, sodium, or calories. On a similar note, most sugar-free products are loaded with artificial sweeteners which can lead to weight gain.

10) Don’t eat the egg yolk. This myth has been around for a long time, and it’s time to get the facts straight.
