Supplement Your Weight Loss Wisely
People still sell snake oil. They just put pictures of leaves on the bottle now. — Cracked magazine
Don't Believe the HypeMany foods that consumers gobble up, thinking they’re healthy, are actually sugar and fat packaged to look like they are nutritious.
Granola BarsPrime example: granola bars which may have as much fat, ounce per ounce, as a Snickers® candy bar.
Protein shakesProtein shakes meant for bodybuilders doing heavy lifting not for folks sitting in front of computers all day. In addition to the protein, they can contain LOTS of sugar and fat too.
Protein BarsProtein bars also fall into this category. They should replace meals, not supplement them, for more sedentary people.
Vitamin WatersWater is the best drink for you, right? Not when 32 grams of sugar are also crammed into the bottle. Even a full size Snickers® candy bar has less sugar — 30 grams of sugar! Stick with the plain stuff to hydrate your way through a healthy summer.
Your best defense: Read the nutritional labelsThey’ll tell you calorie, fat, sugar and protein content. They’ll also indicate where there are enough vitamins to count towards your daily requirements. Knowledge is power!
