3 “Diet Foods” That Are Guaranteed to Sabotage Your Health

Are you putting it all into your diet and exercise program but feel like you aren’t getting the results that you should? Many people find themselves in this situation. You work out hard, eat right and maintain your diet plan, but you fail to see the transformation that you wanted to see. What gives?

Often, the problem is not effort or motivation. The issue is that you are incorporating certain foods in your diet plan that are actually not diet foods at all. The diet industry is a multi million dollar industry and many big businesses unfortunately market their products as healthy, even though they are actually counter-productive to you.

What are these counter-productive foods you might ask? Here are 3 of the problem foods that you need to cut from your diet right away.

Fruit Flavored Yogurts

Fruit flavored yogurts are extremely popular among many dieters, but many people fail to see them for what they really are…They are pint-sized sugar bombs! These individual yogurt containers have gotten unhealthier and unhealthier, while their reputation as a go-to diet food has unfortunately survived.

Next time you are picking out your favorOpt for Greek Yogurt With Fruit or Honeyite yogurt at the grocery store, MAKE SURE to double check the sugar content. You’ll  be very surprised when you see 15 or more grams of sugar per serving! Of course you can buy the sugar-free versions, but then you’re just consuming unwanted artificial sweeteners which are just as bad for you.

What you should opt for instead of the fruit flavored yogurt is plain Greek yogurt. You can flavor plain Greek yogurt yourself by adding a couple of fresh berries.

Fat-Free Products

Beware of any food in the grocery store that is marketed as ‘fat free’. These “fat-free” foods proudly label themselves as fat-free, and that very well may be true. But just think for a minute…if the fat is removed, what has been added to the item instead? Time and time again, the fat content has been substituted with something very undesirable. Often times this means a ridiculous amount of sugar. If you are trying to lose stubborn body fat, sugar is just as bad for you if not worse than fat is.

Protein Bars

The last problem food to be wary of is the protein bar.

Beware of High Amounts of Fat & Sugar in Protein Bars Like These

Despite the protein bars prevalence in many fitness and diet programs, you NEED to check the sugar and fat content. Some of these bars can be decent but many of them contain a ridiculous amount of sugar. Most protein bars have upwards of 15 grams of sugar per bar but some of them can contain 30 or even 40 grams of sugar. Some of these protein bars are glorified chocolate bars and contain a high amount of saturated fat. Beware of some of the ones with a high fat content. While you can buy a few bars with very low sugar content (five grams or less per bar), these will require a little searching. Just make sure to check out every label. The one with a fewer list of ingredients and five grams or less of sugar will definitely be a better option for you if you must eat a protein bar.
