Here at Shedyourweight.com, we’re going to tackle the foods you thought were healthy, but really aren’t. Don’t let these so-called health foods ruin your diet for you.
1. Bottled fruit juice
Most of these single-serve bottled juices contain high amounts of sugar with very little actual juice. Usually, these supermarket-brought juices have added amounts of fructose which can cause obesity and high cholesterol levels in the blood.
2. Granola bars
Oh sure, granola bars have healthy nuts and oats in them, but what glues them together is actually corn syrup, which is loaded with sugar and is really fattening.
The fruit and vegetable part of the salad is healthy, but restaurant prepared salads pack huge amounts of calories. Also, salads are often topped with the unhealthiest of all foods: croutons, bacon bits, fried chicken, and fattening cheese and dressings.
5. Canned foods
To preserve their quality and taste, canned goods are often loaded with sodium, sugar and bad fats such as saturated and transfats.
6. Diet Soda
Yes, even diet soda is packed with empty calories and artificial sweeteners that no only destroy the beautiful enamel of your teeth, but also ruin your weight loss success. Check out the dangers of diet soda for more information on this.
