We all know that cutting junk food from your diet is a vital first step towards fat loss, however some of the seemingly “healthy” foods you swap in are higher in calories, fat, and sugar content than you’d expect.
Even foods like salad, yogurt, fruit, and nuts can cause some serious problems if not portioned correctly.
These sneaky “diet destroyers” may be limiting your ability to stay healthy and lose weight.
Don’t get me wrong, the items listed here are certainly healthy however the food industry likes to do evil things to otherwise great food.
Food manufacturers like to add sugar, extra calories, additives, and a whole bunch of other things that can make any food unhealthy.
While plain yogurt is a great healthy choice at only 100 calories and is chock-full of protein, it can also be loaded with sugar.
How much sugar?
The leading store brand yogurt with fruit at the bottom of the cup has over 26 grams of sugar in one serving!
Your daily recommended value as a woman is only 25 grams (and 37.5 grams of sugar for men).
I don’t know about you, but exceeding my daily intake of sugar in a measly 150 calorie snack is not the way I’d like to start my day.
Make the healthier choice: When purchasing yogurt, look out for fruit or flavour additives and always, ALWAYS check the sugar content.
Sugar alcohols are becoming more and more prevalent in so called “health” foods.
Sugar alcohol won’t show up in the sugar measurement on the nutrition label, however these fake sugar substitutes are arguably worse for you.
