Plenty of supermarkets have foods labeled as ‘healthy’.
Well, don’t believe everything you read.
Actually, every other organic or healthy product is fake healthy food.
The reason for that is the additives and sugar in the foods.
So, if you are having trouble losing weight and you are eating only healthy foods then this can be the reason. (1)
So, let’s see what are unhealthy healthy foods you should avoid.
Especially if you want to lose weight.
8 fake healthy foods you should avoid if you want to lose weight
1. Herb cheese
This cheese is popular because it is often used by people with lactose intolerance.
But this cheese contains 50% of hydrogenated vegetable fat.
This type of fat has trans-fatty acids which may cause atherosclerosis.
Avoid this cheese especially if you are lactose tolerant.
2. Fruit juices and fruit yogurt loaded with sugar
I put these 2 together because of the same reasons.
Juices and fruit yogurt from the supermarket are full of added sugar.
You have almost more additives and sugar than fruits in these juices and yogurt.
Also, there are artificial sweeteners and colors.
Make your own juice instead.
Squeeze a lemon, grapefruit, and orange.
This mix is also good for your immune system.
If you want to make homemade fruit yogurt mix low-fat yogurt and berries.
3. Wheat flakes
Wheat flakes are often loaded with salt and E- additives.
These additives are actually sodium salts.
So, wheat flakes are high in calories because they are full off sugar, fat, and sodium.
And If you read the food labels carefully, you will see flakes contain about 20-30% of sugar.
What to use instead?
Oatmeal with berries, honey, and nuts are a much better choice for breakfast.
4. Sodas (diet ones)
This is the biggest lie.
Diet soda is all, but not good for your diet and health.
It is full of artificial sweeteners.
And full of calories, too.
Don’t drink diet sodas.
Margarine is high in unhealthy fats.
It is made from vegetable oils.
Also, the high temperature during processing the oils destroys vitamins and antioxidants.
So, in most cases, all you can get from margarine is extra pounds.
Use organic butter with good fats instead.
6. Dried fruit
Dried fruit contains 3 times more sugar than fresh fruit and much fewer fibers.
So, don’t exaggerate with dried fruits.
Eat fresh fruits instead.
Cereals contain up to 30% of sugar.
So, if you want to lose weight avoid this food.
Oatmeal with fruit is a much better choice if you are trying to lose weight.
8. Granola bars
Granola bars with honey and dried fruit and the inevitable hydrogenated vegetable fat are very unhealthy healthy foods
Many of them contain chocolate or caramel.
