There may be no worse feeling than thinking you’re eating healthy and finding out you’ve hurt your diet. Here’s how to navigate the worst “Healthy Foods” that companies are making.
Some foods that look or sound healthy may not be as healthy as you think. Many health food packages say, among other things, “no added sugar,” “no cholesterol,” “all natural,” “no trans fat,” “organic,” or “multigrain.” This would lead you to think they’re healthy foods. But, labels can be misleading.
Be a smarter shopper. Always check the nutrition facts label listed on products to see what exactly is in the so-called healthy food. In addition to going by these labels, you should also check out the ingredients list. Most foods that we think are healthy can actually be far worse than foods that we know are not.
