Science certification, these 10 "bad habits" is actually very healthy

Do you often skip breakfast, love coffee, love eggs, like to occasionally sip a few glasses or drink an energy drink? According to scientific research, many of the "bad habits" that you think are actually very good for you.

Whether you love naps, exercise less than two hours a week, or occasionally get lost in high-fat foods, there are studies to support you.

1. Not eating breakfast

Breakfast is not a must. Previously, it is generally believed that skipping breakfast will cause weight gain, but recent studies have found the opposite. Fasting or occasionally skipping a few meals, may actually help to lose weight, which is also known as intermittent fasting.

The most popular intermittent fasting is the 16/8 fasting method, that is, fasting for 16 hours, eating for 8 hours, so that most people eat from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., skipping breakfast.

Large studies have found that in terms of weight loss, intermittent fasting is actually as reliable as traditional diets, and several animal studies have confirmed that intermittent fasting has other benefits, such as reducing the risk of certain cancers and even extending life expectancy, although it has not been proven in humans.

2. Drinking coffee

In March, a California judge ruled that Starbucks and other coffee chains must put cancer warnings on their products. Despite this, there are numerous studies linking regular coffee consumption to a reduced risk of cancer and other health benefits, such as fighting diabetes and promoting heart health.

Doctors recommend limiting caffeine intake to 400 mg per day, or about 3-4 cups of filtered coffee.

3. Eat eggs

The wind and water often turn, rich in cholesterol, fat, protein, several key vitamins and minerals, eggs have been stigmatized for many years, but eggs are actually very healthy, and in order to avoid calories, fat and cholesterol only eat egg whites, in fact, completely unnecessary.

Whole eggs are rich in important vitamins and minerals that you don't readily get from other foods, such as vitamin B12, phosphorus, and are also rich in muscle-burning protein and saturated fat.

Moreover, the cholesterol in eggs does not appear to cause high cholesterol in healthy people. Just as eating fat does not convert to fat, recent studies have confirmed that eating cholesterol does not necessarily cause you to have high cholesterol.

4. Indulge in high-fat foods

Thousands of Americans follow the advice of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in the 1990s, in order to lose weight to seek a low-fat, high starch diet, they choose margarine instead of cream, fat-free instead of full fat, but also restrained from eating less greasy food, but it did not work.

An 8-year study involving nearly 50,000 women found that about half of them adopted a low-fat diet did not reduce the risk of breast cancer, colon cancer or heart disease, and did not lose too much weight.

The new proposal points out that the healthy fats from nuts, fish, avocados and other foods are actually good for you in moderation, so you can add these foods back into your diet.

5. Use of social media

Using social media and sliding down the phone has long been considered harmful to health, but many of the studies supporting this argument are incomplete. Most evidence suggests that there may be some cases where smartphone use can be beneficial.

A study last year by Psychological Science, which examined the effects of cell phone use among more than 120,000 British teenagers, found that social media was not harmful to most teenagers, and sometimes helped them socialize and gain emotional support from their peers.

Overall, the evidence suggests that moderate use of digital technology is not inherently harmful and may have benefits in an interconnected world," the report said.

6. Drink energy drinks

Have you ever been told by your mother-in-law that Red Bull is too chemical and will kill you because you drink it? Actually, Red Bull (at least the sugar-free version) isn't that bad, as it contains only 10 calories, no sugar, and only 80 milligrams of caffeine, about 1/3 the amount of a medium Starbucks cup.

7. Drink a glass or two of wine

Too much of anything is bad, and alcohol is no exception.

But some studies suggest that people who drink moderately (that is, one or two glasses of red wine or beer a day) may have health benefits, such as reducing the risk of cognitive decline caused by aging.

A study published last year in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease found that people who drank regularly were much more likely than those who did not drink at all to show no signs of cognitive decline by age 85. Another survey, which reviewed 74 studies, also made similar conclusions.

8. Turn off message notifications

At Google's recent I/O developer conference, a number of features were revealed to kick the "technology addiction", one of which is a new feature to block notifications, as many users believe that notifications can make people anxious and reduce productivity.

But some studies have pointed out that turning off the mute completely to solve anxiety can make people more stressed.

The solution may not be to turn off notifications altogether. According to the study, people who received notifications not immediately but in batches were less stressed and happier than those who received notifications normally or not at all.

9. Give up working out for long periods of time

You don't have to sweat for hours at a time at the gym to get healthy. Research shows that intense, high-intensity training, such as 7-minute workouts and high-intensity interval training (HIIT), may be better for building muscle and protecting the heart than other exercises.

High-intensity interval training can provide similar or better results than traditional longer, moderate intensity workouts," says sports psychologist Chris Jordan.

10. Napping

Napping doesn't mean you're lazy. Some studies have shown that napping may be associated with significant health benefits, especially if you're often sleep deprived.

If you sleep easily, often go to bed later than you should, have difficulty controlling your eating habits or losing weight, have difficulty concentrating, have a loss of energy, have a decreased sex drive, and have pains here and there, it's probably a warning sign of sleep deprivation.

"Brain, Behavior and Immunity" journal of a small study, compared deliberately sleep-deprived people nap 30 minutes and sleep 10 hours of health effects, found that both practices seem to help restore immunity to normal levels.
Harvard scholar Robert Stickgold also believes that napping even helps people solve the problem of energy and concentration.
