Weight loss is the most crucial factor and at least one member from a family is over-weight or obese and they always in search of some ways that will help them to reduce some weight and belly fat. We always turn a discerning eye towards processed foods. We always read the label and buy the product but actually foods that marketed as Healthy Foods can actually make you gain belly fat and it will make you gain over all body weight. Giant’s food companies want you to buy their cheap and processed diet food which we actually call diet foods and that’s why they label them as Healthy that actually makes you fat or obese. Here are list of some foods that we always take it as a healthy food but actually not good for health at all.
List of Foods Which Makes You Gain Weight-
Cereal- We always choose cereal as the healthy foods but this is the worst offenders when it comes to misleading labels. We always opt cereal instead of chocolates or any other high calories food but cereals that are marketed as healthy, it often contains a high level of sugar and a single bowl of marketed cereal can account for your entire recommended daily intake of sweet stuff.
Organic Fruit Juices- We always think fruit juices are healthy enough but do you know that store-bought fruit juice can be troublesome because it contains high fructose of corn syrup. If you drink 100% all natural juices then its all-right otherwise it’s not at all as healthy as we think it should be. However, a glass of orange juice might be a better option for health than choosing a can of soda, it still contain a lot of sugar without several health benefits of a piece of fruits such as nutrients and fiber.
Low fat foods or Diet Foods- Low fat foods is one of the big offenders to misguide people. Those who are using these low fat foods or diet foods realizes after some years that they replaced one bad eating habit with another along with costly. These low fat foods or diet foods are actually expensive than normal foods with no health benefits. For example if you take good and healthy fats out peanut butter but the manufacturer added more sugar and sodium in order to maintain the same taste. As such, low fat foods or diet foods have usually the same amount of calories as the original foods with less fat and more sugar.
Protein bars or energy bars- These snack able bars like protein, energy, cereal or granola bars contains a lot of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and a plenty of calories along with things which are good and bad too for health. Generally soy protein is found in these protein bars that actually heavily processed and stripped of most of its nutritional value. Energy bars are usually used by athletes who need instant energy to compensate for the large amount of calories they burn. Many energy and protein bars have more calories than an original candy bars.
Sports drink- This drink is specially made for athletes and if you are not an athlete’s then probably you don’t need it. These concoctions are full of electrolytes and it helps athletes refuel after intense workouts and it has a high level of calories and a lot of sugar.
Whole wheat or whole grain bread- When we think about the healthiest things to include in our diet, whole wheat bread or whole grain bread is the most common and it’s very important too. The imposters are often made with enriched refined grains that have very less nutritional benefits. So, next time before buying the loaf, please check to make sure the first ingredients. If the first ingredient is “whole wheat flour” instead of “wheat flour” or “enriched wheat flour”.
Avocados- This fruit is everyone’s favorite and it has many health benefits too. While we are on the subject of healthy fats then turn our attention to avocado. Health experts say snacking on too many avocados can lead to weight gain when you will not adjust your diets accordingly. Avocado has almost a third of your recommended daily fat intake.
Salads- Generally, people who wants to eat healthy foods to maintain their healthy lifestyle, they choose salads as the best option. In fact, salad is really a right choice in order to eat healthy food but problem arises when we add things like glazed nuts, fried chicken, cheese, bread and worst salad dressing to our salads. These things are fully loaded with fat, sugar and calories and after adding it to your healthy salads, you’ll get only yummy taste with no nutritional value.
Substitutes of eggs- Many people who are on diet or those who want to maintain healthy weight or body, they generally opt for egg-white products instead of products made from whole eggs. They think egg white contains all the protein and nutrients of whole egg without fat or cholesterol. This is the biggest myths because yolk in whole egg can help increase healthy cholesterol when eaten in moderation. In short, eating whole egg is healthy habit instead of eating only egg white.
Above written list of foods are actually good for health but giant’s food companies make it unhealthy and label it as a healthy or diet foods. So, before buying, please make sure which foods are really healthy and which one is fake?
