Fattening 'Diet' Foods

True, or False? Healthy Food, or no?

The real calorie, sugar and fat content of popular diet foods will surprise you. Learn here about the fat traps lurking in foods you think are healthy for you.

Yogurt

Flavored yogurt can be packed with as much as 31 grams of sugar per cup. Low-fat plain yogurt is a healthier choice and fat-free Greek yogurt has less sugar than plain yogurt but twice the amount of protein.

Sugar-free snacks

Sugar-free snacks such as cookies and candy are no better than the real thing. When sugar is removed, fat and calories are typically added, so it’s not helping your diet at all.

Trail mix

You have to be careful with the type of trail mix you buy. The kind with banana chips (which are usually deep-fried) or yogurt-covered raisins (which may contain partially hydrogenated oil) will have trans fats and saturated fats.

Veggie chips

With veggie chips, be on the lookout for potato chips posing as a healthy snack, as veggie chips are often just potato flour with food coloring with plenty of salt, fat and calories. Make sure they are made of an actual veggie, which would be the first ingredient listed.

Smoothies

Smoothies can contain as much as 500 calories and 17 grams of fat depending on what’s added to them in the mixer. Stay away from those with frozen yogurt, sorbet or sherbet added. Better yet, make your own with fruit only.

Ground turkey

Many healthy eaters turn to turkey as an alternative to beef, but it can sometimes be as fattening or even more so than beef. How so? Ground turkey contains skin and a 3-ounce serving can contain 13 grams of fat, which is three times the amount in lean ground beef. Make it a point to check nutrition labels and always opt for the leanest meat selection.
