“Not all seemingly healthy foods are good. The unhealthy bit of some is big that it hides the good part,” says Ingabire Harris, a practicing medical doctor. She listed to the Women Times’ Ben Gasore some of the foods that may turn out to be unhealthy for you.
Flavored Fat-Free Yogurt: Don’t fall into the fat-free trap. Just because something is fat-free doesn’t make it healthy. In fact, many flavored yogurts have upwards of 15 grams of sugar in that tiny serving! Dr. Ingabire’s advice would be to buy plain, fat-free yogurt and flavor it up with some fruit or even a small drizzle of honey. That way, you control what’s in it.
Energy Drinks: With so many energy drinks on the market, many of which promise to pump you up and give you a killer workout with added caffeine, vitamins, and minerals, it may be tempting to think that these drinks are healthy, but they aren’t. It’s best to stick to plain water to rehydrate and whole nutrition to energize.
Wheat Bread: Don’t be fooled by wheat-bread products. If the package doesn’t specifically say “100-percent whole wheat,” then it’s probably mostly white bread with just a little wheat flour mixed in for marketing. Also make sure that each slice has at least 2 grams of fiber another mark of truly healthy bread.
