Have you ever watched MythBusters? Well welcome to the online, shortened version of that. I asked the AYN2K producers if I could come up with a 45 minute long episode to hypothesize, test, and conclude whether these gym and nutrition myths were busted, plausible, or confirmed, and I was immediately and unsurprisingly shot down. So instead of sitting back and watching a video about them, how about a little mental workout? Read through these myths and facts below!
• Myth: Genetically modified fruits and vegetables are bad for you.
• Fact: Honestly eating any fruit would probably be better than what you’re doing.

• Myth: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
• Fact: Let's be honest, breakfast is your least favorite meal out of the eight you normally eat.
• Myth: White Potatoes are unhealthy.
• Fact: Potatoes are straight up starch, who cares, just eat it.
• Myth: You can target your fat burn.
