Some foods can't help but be sneaky.
They sit, unassuming, in your refrigerator at home or work and simply send out a vibe that says, "Eat me, I'm healthy." In actuality, they're in the business of deception and lure health-conscious eaters or those in the midst of a weight-loss and exercise plan into a food lull.
The result is confusion on the part of the consumer. Foods they have always assumed are healthy aren't. The drawback of these foods mostly center on the fact that they're processed and high in sugar, not necessarily fat. Sugar, however, has been determined to be just as bone-jarring and unhealthy as foods high in fat content.
One of the bigger culprits is yogurt, which most consumers believe is a staple in a healthy regimen. The safest bet for this popular snack is to choose one that is "light" or low sugar. A regular yogurt serving could have as much as 40 grams a sugar. The recent surge in popularity of Greek Yogurt makes it the more prudent, potent selection in this particular food group. From sugar to fat, salad dressing smell like more than just ranch, Italian and french -- more like a rat.
Dieters love their lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and crutons but what truly kills a salad is the slop that is put on after the fact in the form of fatty dressings that absolutely negate any healthy items buried underneath.
