We all know eating fatty, high calorie, unhealthy foods on a regular basis is bad because they can not only make you fat but also destroy your health. Surprisingly, many people still become overweight when they consume seemingly healthy foods which are actually bad for weight loss. When it comes to losing weight, we basically want to avoid foods that are fatty, sugary or high in calories. Depending on how the food is being prepared and what types of ingredients are being used, any healthy foods can easily turn into a weight loss nightmare if you’re not careful.
Popcorn for example is actually good for you when they are air-popped. Microwave popcorn however is not. Similarly, starting your day with a glass of smoothie is totally healthy provided that you do not sweeten it with excessive amount of sugar or top it with high fat cream. Cereals are often considered healthy but sugary cereals are a no-no for regular breakfast, not when you want to lose weight.
Dried fruits may sound healthy and all but they usually contain more than double the sugar content of fresh fruits. Additionally, many store bought dried fruits are sulfured and sweetened and that’s a bad sign because you want to cut down on sugar, not consume more of them and break your weight loss efforts. When consumed in moderation, unsulfured and unsweetened dried fruits can make a healthy snack.
With that said, here are 18 seemingly healthy foods that are bad for weight loss. Some of these foods can be healthy if they are prepared differently using healthier ingredients. Enjoy!
