True or False: Nutrition and Weight Loss

true-or-false

A growing number of myths are out there when it comes to nutrition. Applying these misleading claims is often disheartening, as losing weight and maintaining it can be very hard when the information on which you base your approach is wrong. Complete the following true or false quiz to test your knowledge in this matter:
