DIET Foods That Make You FAT!

| 25/02/2013 | 0 Comments More

We all buy them, sucked into the hype of advertising that food companies put out there to make us think that buying a diet option food will get you slim…

But how wrong are you!…

Cereal Bars:

We are lead to believe that cereal bars are the perfect healthy snack and the light option breakfast on the go. However, most breakfast bars are packed with cane sugar and corn syrup, not to mention high levels of fat. In fact, despite their healthy image, cereal bars can contain as much fat, sugar and calories as an average chocolate bar, and can cause crashes in blood sugar levels which will leave you craving more food.

Diet Drinks:

Diet drinks may actually be causing you to pile on the pounds. So turning to your sugar free verion of your favorite drink is likely to do more harm than good.

Research by the Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio found that those who consumed diet drinks daily experienced a 70 per cent greater increase in waist circumference than those who drank none, while a previous study showed that obesity risk increased by 41 per cent for each diet drink consumed. A suggested reason for this is that artificial sweeteners trigger appetite, and they may also inhibit the brain cells that make you feel full.


Did you know that the Chicken Ceaser Salad in McDonalds has more sugar content than a Big Mac?

Eating a salad should be a healthy option for eating, ans if prepared from fresh produce at home, it is, BUT! When out and about, buying these on the go salads, pre-packaged for your which are all advertised to us as healthy option foods are far too often not the case!

Salads bought in these plastic tubs from the supermarket may contain those healthy vegetables, BUT they are buried under layers of oily sugar dressings which can be very high in both fat and calories.
