Breakfast Cereals:They are usually loaded with sugar and refined carbs, which are some of the most fattening ingredients in existence.
If you really must eat cereal
for breakfast find one that does not include sugar or highly refined grains.
Trail mix and Dried Fruits:Some store-bought brands pack in ingredients like honey, added sugar, and
chocolate and can set you back hundreds of calories.
Plus, as you already learned, nuts are high in fat.So, a cup of dried fruit packs five to eight times more calories and sugar than a cup of the fresh stuff.
Dark Chocolate: An ounce of dark chocolate packs in 155 calories and 9 grams of fat, 5 of it saturated.
Gluten-Free Packaged Foods:Gluten-free packaged foods often replace regular flour with cornstarch and
brown rice flour, which are more caloric-ally dense.
If you have a gluten intolerance, then you must drop wheat, barley, and rye from your diet to stay healthy.
Smoothies and Coffee: When they're made with ingredients like chocolate, peanut butter, frozen yogurt, or flavored syrups and served in huge cups,
then they quickly become a sneaky source of added calories.
Some are no healthier than a milkshake.For Coffee if you order a large latte with whole milk,
you'll be sipping up to 300 calories and 15 grams of fat.
Yogurt:A container of plain yogurt contains just 100 calories and provides a dose of bone-building calcium.
But one small cup of yogurt that comes with fruit on the bottom may contain up to 150 calories and 26 grams of sugar.
Salad: As long as you don't load your leafy greens with shredded cheese, croutons, candied nuts, and creamy dressing.
Doing that can easily make your meal even more fattening than having pizza for dinner.
Juices and Nutrition Water: While juices can fast track nutrients into your system, they’re often overloaded
with calories and sugar,
which can lead to unwanted fat gain.
Some 20-ounce bottles contain more than 30 grams of the sweet stuff.
Olive Oil and Avocado: A Spanish study links the abundance of good fats found in nuts and olive oil which are staples of the diet.
If you go overboard with the guacamole or end up downing a whole avocado, you can set yourself back 300 calories or more.
White Carbs:white rice, pasta, white bread, and starches are fattening because they are high glycemic index foods.
A study suggests that such carbs are a problem for people wanting to lose body fat.
Findings show that consumption of the wrong carbs creates body fat.
