For the most part, you pretty much can tell the good from the bad as it relates to food and drinks. More specifically, spotting healthy foods versus the ones that aren't so good for you should be fairly simple on the surface.
If you're trying to lose weight and eat better, you realize that eating grilled chicken, salmon along with vegetables is much more prudent than the cheeseburger, French fries and sugary soft drink in the grand scheme of trying to clean up your diet.
Where most people find themselves lagging, at no fault of their own typically, is making the decision on what can only be described as a borderline food. Plenty of snacks, meals and others of that ilk masquerade or are dubbed as "healthy" when in actuality they're not that at all; not even close.
A big part of the confusion comes how the foods are marketed, whether advertisers and manufacturers convince themselves that a food that contains "no trans fat" is perfectly acceptable even though the sugar content is triple the serving on a case of soda.
Those who are struggling with eating correctly or are on the ill conceived diet want desperately to find food that tastes good and can still enjoy so are more apt to buy into the hype of great tasting food that promises to be healthy but isn't.
