    - Gaining/losing weight is dependent upon the time of day that you consume calories

    - High-fructose corn syrup is more harmful to your health than cane sugar

    - Your max heart rate is 220 minus your age/you will die if you exceed that number

    - Training techniques, schedules, etc. of the Pros are good for all cyclists


    I'll probably think of some others later. Something tells me this list will be more than ten items long...
    Can you pass the test?

    -Eating more food will help you lose weight.
    -Just exercising more will make you lose weight, even if you don’t monitor food intake.

    More myths:

    Eat before, during and after that 60 minute ride or you'll bonk.

    As long as you ride a lot, you can eat as much as you want.

    Whey protein is better than soy protein.

    Soy protein is better than whey protein.

    Wind is your friend.

    Lifting weights will make you slow.

    Weston Price is my nutrution god and I ride 300 miles a week on a diet of bacon and buttered sausage.

    More:

    You must analyze and worry about every bit of food you put in your mouth.

    If it tastes good, don't eat it. Never eat for pleasure because nutrition is serious business.

    XYZ supplements will make you faster with no cramping and zero recovery time. And they're UCI legal and have no side effects.

    Aspartame will make you sick.

    Food has less nutrition today because the soils are depleted.


    Eating sugar will give you a "sugar rush" followed by a "sugar crash".

    Higher price energy replacement foods can't possibly be better for you because the internet says so.

    #8. Hey, if this supplement, vitamin or food makes me faster, it must be healthy!

    #9. I can't lose weight because I always go into "starvation mode" when I diet.

    #10. If XYZ supplement works for me, then of course it will work for you.....

    Maybe they aren't the top ten........ can we do better?

    OK, here's a few more:

    - Organic food is more healthy than non-organic food

    - If the label tells you the food/pill is made from "all natural" products, it must be good

    - Consuming carbs will make you gain weight

    A couple more:

    - All cholesterol is bad for you
    - Low-fat milk has less calcium and not as good for you
    - All fruit juice is healthier than soda-pop
    - Eating fish is dangerous because of mercury levels

    Low-fat means it is healthier than the higher fat equivalent

    2003 Klein Palomino MTB

    60% of the time, it works everytime.

    From advertising...

    If it's low in fat, it must be good for you.
    If it's low GI it also must be good for you.

    Professional athletes believe in and use the products they endorse.

    You are fat because of a glandular problem.

    If a person is thin, they can't tell you anything about losing weight. (this is my wife's pet peeve, she is thin because she maintains her weight - she can gain weight anything she wants.)

    we'll all be like Jack LaLanne and live and be fit to over 90.
    The aspartame users will all live to over 91.

    Oh yes ... that's one of my pet peeves too!! "You're thin you you have no idea what it's like ..." I work hard to maintain my weight! I do gain a little bit of weight once in a while if I'm not as vigilant with my diet and exercise as I should be, and once about 16 years ago I got a bit too heavy, but if I do gain weight, I work hard to bring my weight back down and not let it get out of control.

    The funny thing is, if you want to learn how to eat and lose weight - don't watch dieters - watch the people who manage to keep thin year after year - especially if they are over 40. If you want to know how to gain weight - watch people at a all you can eat buffet!
