Healthy foods that aren't so healthy

Good morning everyone,

It's hot. If you want to know what the weather is going to be like, look at last week's forecast (highs of 34C or 35C) and then add 2C. Yep. It's going to be even hotter than it was...

When we hear stories about people who have successfully lost weight and kept it off for years, the key to their slimming success is rarely the result of trading in whole, natural foods for something they bought in a box. However, with so many foods on the market that claim to be able to get us into the killer shape we've always wanted, it's often difficult to separate fact from fiction when it comes to what's actually good for us versus what's simply lower in fat, sugar, or calories.

In fact, many of the foods commonly touted as being diet-friendly alternatives to your usual meals are actually doing more harm than good in the long run. While they may shave a few calories off your daily total, the damage they're doing to your diet and overall health simply isn't worth it in the long run. We're not just talking about slimmed-down versions of your favorite unhealthy treats, either—in many cases, foods that seem perfectly healthy at first glance are actually sneaky diet saboteurs. Before you take another bite, let's look at some "health" foods that are actually terrible for you.
