Ever wonder why you go all day munching on fat-free pretzels and granola yet never seem to lose any weight? Why your tasty yogurt with fruit is leaving you feeling blah and your trail mix has you bloated?
It's because all those healthy things are nothing but junk. Crap. Garbage. They are well-disguised as health foods, I'll give them that, but man are they ever liars. And they know it, too.
I went out and checked labels, read nutrition information, and came up with seven of the worst offenders -- including one or two whose labels are painfully misleading. Put down that sugar-filled energy drink and read on.
So-called health foods make up a multibillion-dollar industry -- and they're making you just as fat and insulin-dependent as the soda industry. It's completely disgusting, but what can you do?
Funny you should ask!
Make your own foods: trail mix with unsalted nuts and fruit, muffins with low sugar and fat content. Drink water flavored with lemon and switch to Greek yogurt with frozen berries mixed in. As for those energy bars -- dump them altogether and score natural energy from fresh fruit.
Have you even been shocked by how fattening your "healthy snack" is?
