5 Healthy food that we often misunderstand. 

Anyone who is now taking care of themselves might be interested when they hear about healthy food. Most people believe that healthy food is good for our health. However, there are still a lot of people who misunderstand about it. Some healthy food may damage our health if we eat it incorrectly. Today, ACU PAY will share 5 healthy foods that we usually misunderstand about them.

Skim milk

Even if fat is filtered out to leave a small amount of fat, it also removes some of the vitamins dissolved in fat such as vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin D. Therefore, it is not suitable for children. A full fat milk is more suitable for children. A high-calcium and low-fat skim milk is suitable for people who want to control their weight. They should drink a cup of skim milk per day with other high-calcium food. 


Many people choose to have cereal for breakfast, but cereal is usually covered with sugar and flavored with a sweet taste. Some of the cereal are not made from real grain but made from starch. Thus, you will gain no nutrition and it will make you easily gain weight. If you often have cereal as a main meal, it can also harm long-term health.

Whey protein

Many people think that whey protein helps in building muscle and will not make you gain weight. However, if you eat whey protein but do not exercise, your body will receive extra energy until you gains weight

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is believed to be a fatty acid that burns better than other oils. In fact, Coconut oil provides the same energy as other oils, which is 1 teaspoon equal to 45 kilocalories. If you eat the same amount of food but do not exercise, you can gain weight as well. Therefore, coconut oil should be used instead of vegetable oil for some meals, cooked by boiling, steaming, roasting, and eating more vegetables instead.

Processed fruit juice

Most people believe that fruit juice is good for our health. Well, this is partially true because the processed fruit juice usually contains a lot of sugar and preservatives, especially those juice that is flavored with an artificial sweetener. The dietary fiber and fruit fibers contained in the juice is low. It is better to eat fresh fruit because it provides lower energy and sugar, has a higher dietary fiber, and is more full than drinking fruit juice.

To choose a diet known as healthy food, we need to think carefully and eat properly and focus more on exercise. Everyone can do it!
