Food That “Pretends” To Be Dietary

The best way to lose weight is to eat properly and stay active without consuming extra calories. However, food that we consider dietary is not always truly dietary. Let’s find out what kind of food you’d better avoid, if you are on a weight loss diet. Even if its package exhibits beautiful promises, such food can violate your diet and interfere with your weight loss progress.

DESSERTS WITHOUT SUGAR

Many sugar-free sweet foods are produced with additional fat, which doesn’t make them any more useful, than usual desserts, when it comes to dieting.

  • You’d better grab a snack with special fiber-rich crackers.

As for sweeteners, they require caution when used, since they may provoke edemas and even diarrhea.

DESSERTS WITHOUT SUGAR

MUESLI

A cup of muesli contains about 500 calories and 30 grams of fat, which is clearly not suitable for you, if you want to lose weight fast.

MUESLI

Even low-fat milk adds extra calories. 

Controlling portions is very important, if you consume muesli. Mix them with oatmeal or simply eat whole-grain mix. You can make such breakfasts on your own, adding a little honey instead of sugar.

SMOOTHIES

Fruits are very useful, but most smoothies lose a large amount of their fiber and keep the sugar that fruits contain. In addition, they often contain fat, which making smoothies an extremely undesirable food for a weight loss diet. If you have no time to make homemade smoothies,

  • buy the smallest portions and do not choose those that contain sorbitol and peanut butter.

GREEK YOGURT

Yogurt that is great for improving your digestion may become the worst food for weight loss, if you prefer sweet variations.

They can contain twice as much sugar than the conventional product.

  • If you do not like the natural taste, add a little honey and fruit in your yogurt.

I don’t think it’s worth reminding you once again that yogurt should be low-fat or skim.

LOW-FAT SALAD DRESSING

Despite the fact that such dressings really contain no fat and are low in calories, they still belong to the worst foods for losing weight because of the side effect.

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,

  • fat-free dressings block the absorption of certain antioxidants from vegetables, thus making salad less useful.

Therefore, choose low-fat dressings, made from vegetable oils, or make your own dressing with olive oil, vinegar and mustard.

MIX OF NUTS AND DRIED FRUITS

When you buy a ready-made product, you are guarantee to consume more calories than you would, if using a homemade mixture of nuts and dried fruits.

 

If you still want to buy the read-made product:

  • check the content of saturated and trans fat, and avoid mixtures with fried banana chips.

VEGETABLE CHIPS

If you want to satisfy your hunger, vegetable chips can be a perfect snack.

But they are often made from corn or potato flower with only a small amount of vegetables.

 

  • Carefully read the package info to avoid buying fatty potato chips.

SUSHI

Even useful sushi may become worst dietary food if you choose fried rolls and eat them with a fatty sauce.

 

  • Choose the traditional simple options that contain no mayonnaise or cheese.

TURKEY

You will benefit your weight loss, if you limit your consumption of red meat.

Turkey in this case, is an excellent alternative and an indispensable source of protein.

Yet, it is also capable of harming your slimming progress quite significantly, since minced turkey often contain a lot of fat.

 

  • Buy special ground turkey that contains no more than a gram of fat per serving.

DIET DRINKS

It is not hard to give up food that makes you gain weight, yet diet drinks simply attract attention.

Remember, sweet soda is not compatible with losing weight, despite the claims of the manufacturer.

 

  • Better drink plain or carbonated water.
