Where are people picking up all these sundry toxins, so that they are required to "detoxify" themselves with expensive products? You know your body has systems that can dispose of the toxins that are the normal by-products of of our cellular activity without resorting to smoothies. My favorite were the pads that people were sticking on the soles of their feet to "draw out the toxins and heavy metals". I think it was actually their brain cells that were being drawn out by the pads. Oh well, fools and their money are soon parted,

Charmaine Eberman Skemp Martelli, True! But we all make the occasional typo, from time to time. Even me and I'm nearly prefect! (Just kidding)

I'd love it if someone were to come up with a few diet rules that are true and actually work. I'm fed up of all this myth busting. I knew all of these already. I'd like to know what I CAN do, not what I shouldn't do to lose weight and be healthy!

I did not believe in the low carb thing either until I tried the dying thing, ( and according to my wife I could not even get that right}, but long story short a hail Mary plan and 7 months later I am down 107 lbs and counting. I am not saying it works for everyone but it is worth a try I mean what have you gotta lose except the weight.

I have tried not to eat after 7 for eons because I thought it would make me gain weight. So Glad to hear this one. Sometimes I forget till after and starve till the next morning. (Well, starve to me) I actually go to bed early sometimes to avoid eating late. This one makes me smile :-)

My son and I say everything is "organic" because organic is oxygen, carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, and hydrogen. We are all made of oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen as are most of our fruit and veggies. It's just a cost gimmick. This just proves it.

These myths are so obvious. It’s disconcerting to me that so many people seem so surprised.

I can’t believe the criticism about the spelling of weight. I really liked the correction of a lot of myths, especially about Organics. Good article, well worth reading. I have to agree with everything in moderation!

As stated by Diane, “everything in moderation” is an oldie, but a goodie. Pity the water myth is perpetuated here. All liquid counts. Much is in food (eg fruit, lettuce) in a balanced diet.
