Some foods that we eat, may seem healthy. But the question is....Are Health Foods really Healthy?".
Nutritional labels of many brands shout phrases such as "Low cholesterol, Low fat, No added sugar, organic foods, multigrain". However, unhealthy choices lurk among even the most-healthy seeming foods. For instance, chewing onto an energy candy or granola bars. It may seem extremely nutritious and provide one with enough energy. There lies the MYTH! The high energy comes from the high calories, coming from high fats and high sugar in the bar.
THERE'S NO MAGIC, BUT SIMPLY HIDDEN DIET HAZARDS
THE FIGHT BETWEEN NATURAL FOODS & ARTIFICIAL FOODS!
DO JUSTICE BY READING THE NUTRITIONAL LABEL CAREFULLY :
DOESN'T SOUND NATURAL ANYMORE, DOES IT ?
THE HEALTHY MYTHS CONSIDERED UNHEALTHY!
ENERGY AND GRANOLA BARS
Extremely high in fats, sugars and calories. The name "low-fat" just swaps sugar for fat and as many calories as regular versions.
Lessons Learned : AVOID these bar's completely.
SALADS WITH UNHEALTHY FATTY DRESSINGS
Vegetables are healthy. Yes! But the question is "Are The Salad Dressings Healthy?"
Lessons Learned : Before ordering a salad, check all the dressings and other add-ons
GELATO Vs ICE CREAM
Gelato is more creamy and dense than ice cream and is often lower in calories, fat and sugar. Depending on the type and portion size you choose, gelato may not always be a healthier option than ice cream. Fruit-flavored gelato may also contain additional sugar due to the natural sugars found in fruit. Many gelato shops top gelato with chocolate or fruit sauces, which also increase calories and sugar.
Reality : ICE- CREAMS WOULD BE A HEALTHIER OPTION OVER DENSE GELATOS.
THE REALITY OF SUGAR FREE PRODUCTS
Biscuits with no sugar or very little sugar sure sound super healthy, but are they actually the best fit for your health? Most sugar free products either contain high levels of fat or salt to compensate for the lack of sugar. Other unhealthy additives in the form of leavening agents, emulsifiers and artificial flavors are also present. These factors make these products as unhealthy as the ones with loaded sugar in them. Hence, one must always look at the nutrition labels on the back when making food choices, because they will tell you much more than the labels on the front of the packages will.
