Don’t Be Duped! — 3 “Diet Foods” Guaranteed to Sabotage Your Health

Do you feel like you’re putting everything into your diet regimen but getting no results?

Don’t Be Duped!

Many people are in this predicament. They work hard and stick to their diet plan like bulldogs, yet they do not see the desired result. Despite the fact that hopes are high, the scale refuses to fall.

What’s going on?

Often, the issue is not one of effort or drive. The problem is that they are including items into their diet plan that are not diet foods at all. The diet industry is enormous business, and regrettably, many companies pitch their products as healthy, even when they are not.

What exactly are these foods? Here are three problematic items that you should eliminate from your diet immediately.

Yogurt with Fruit Flavors

Many dieters enjoy fruit-flavored yoghurts, but many fail to recognise them for what they are: pint-sized sugar bombs. Individual yoghurt packs have become increasingly unhealthy, although their reputation as a go-to diet item has sadly persisted.

Check the sugar content of your favourite yoghurt the next time you go shopping. You might be startled to learn that each serving contains 15+ grammes of sugar.

Of course, you can buy sugar-free versions, but you’ll be consuming unnecessary artificial sweeteners, which can be just as unhealthy for you.

Choose plain Greek yoghurt instead. Add a handful of fresh berries to personalise it.

Products Low in Fat

Be wary of any product that claims to be “fat free.” These items proudly declare that they are fat-free, which may or may not be the case.

But consider this: if the fat has been eliminated, what has been added? Time and time, the fat content has been replaced with something equally unpalatable.

Often, this means a lot of sugar.

Sugar is just as terrible — if not worse — than fat when you comes to losing body fat.

Protein Snacks

The protein bar is the final problematic food to avoid, despite its ubiquity in many diet programmes and meal plans. These may appear to be a good option because they include protein, but you should take a deeper look.

Examine the sugar content. Most protein bars include up to 15 grammes of sugar per bar. Some contain up to 40 grammes.

In reality, these are only repackaged chocolate bars. While there are a few bars with very low sugar content (five grammes or fewer per bar), you will have to look for them.

Unfortunately, many dieters are blissfully oblivious of these three issue foods. Are any of them a part of your present diet? Don’t Be Duped!
