Supposed Diet Foods That Aren't Really Diet Friendly
Part of being fit is being wise about the food we eat. Avoiding high-fat, high cholesterol foods are a must as well as eating foods rich in essential vitamins and minerals.
But what if your diet food isn't helping your diet?
Let me give you some examples of diet foods that actually bust your diet.
Sushi - you may think that this dish is lean and healthy because it's made of seafood and doesn't require oil to prepare, but the truth is, the cream cheese, shredded cheese, and mayo included in the dish are loaded with fat too.
Fat-free salad dressing - Fat-free doesn't always equate to healthy. Some nutrients need fat in order to be absorbed by the body. By using fat-free dressing all the time, you may actually be wasting precious nutrients in your salad greens.
Ground turkey - many a diet gurus suggest using turkey meat instead of regular ground meat. But if you're not careful enough, you may end up buying ground turkey that still contains skin and fat which will still add up to your cholesterol count.
Are you surprised at how much fat your supposed diet foods still contain? I know I am
