Myth Buster


With crazy headlines and diet fads, it can be hard to work out what's healthy and who to trust. Our in-house expert is here to debunk some of these common claims so you don’t have to.  




Myth 1: You shouldn’t eat breakfast... 

Breakfast has a reputation as the most important meal of the day’, but recent shifts towards intermittent fasting claim that skipping breakfast is more beneficial, in reality, breakfast isn’t either of these things. Breakfast is completely personal; some people wake up hungry, while others don’t have an appetite until mid-morning. If you struggle with finding time to eat, our breakfast range is designed to fuel busy people, with a huge range of protein-boosted options including Granola, Porridge and Muffin pots which can be ready in under a minute. 



Myth 2: Snacking is bad... 

Stop right there. Snacking is not bad, it’s great! Firstly, if you are really craving a snack, then you’re probably hungry! It is important to honour your body and how you feel, and it is totally normal to be hungry between meal-times. Snacking also helps to keep you satisfied between meals, and research has shown it prevents overeating and actively helps with weight management. Snacks don’t have to be unhealthy. We have a wide range of delicious oat bars, cookies and muffin pots which can help you beat the afternoon slump and are packed with protein to keep you feeling fuller for longer.  



Myth 3: Running is better for you than walking... 

This is a massive misconception. When you run or walk you are targeting the same exact muscle groups and as such one is no ‘better’ than the other. Obviously, running is carried out at a much higher intensity so your energy burn per time will be higher, but walking is just as good – it just takes a little longer.  




Myth 4: You shouldn’t eat carbs in the evening... 

Eating late in the evening has been claimed to cause weight gain, but they’re the same any time in the day. Their chemical composition doesn’t change because it’s dark outside. This reputation is likely to have appeared because after-dinner snacks can be uncontrolled, easily accessible, and high in calories. But, if you eat a balanced diet, nothing needs to be labelled bad. Our Oat Muffins make a great after-dinner snack and can be served with fruit, yog, ice-cream, or straight from the pot. The perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and have a tasty, filling dessert at the same time! 



Myth 5: Pain is essential to grow muscles... 

Although it is important to participate in hard workouts to boost your fitness. Pain does not always mean gain! It is true that DOMS can enhance muscle growth to an extent. However, too much of this can cause more harm than good. If you feel a sharp pain anywhere it is important to stop exercising. Carrying on could result in injury which will set you back massively in your training schedule.
