FOODS THAT SABOTAGE YOUR DIET

12 FOODS THAT SABOTAGE YOUR DIET
You spend a lot of your time working hard to uphold your health and fitness; which is why you should never let temptations and cravings get the best of you. There are certain foods as appetizing as they are that should be avoided at all costs.
Stay on track toward achieve your health and fitness goals; don’t let these foods lure you in.


FRUIT JUICE
Unfortunately, outgrowth juice isn’t always as fresh and natural as it may seem. Fruit juice can contain more sugar and calories than a sugary soft drink. According to Authority Nutrition, “after being squeezed from the fruit, the juice is usually stored in massive oxygen-depleted holding tanks for up to a year before it is packaged.” Even the highest quality juices are far from their accepted state.

SUGAR ALTERNATIVES
“Maple Syrup, Agave and so many other name that "healthy fashionistas" have pushed as a white sugar alternative,” Claire O'Meara, Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach, says. “Most of the darling alternatives brandished healthy are nothing more than commercial overly processed, chemically induced, laboratory-generated, super-condensed fructose syrup with no genuine health benefit what so ever.”


FRIED FOODS
athlete would never eat fried foods, so neither should you. Fried foods are bad for your heart and take a long time to digest. They can also clog artery and veins which can lead to strokes, heart attacks and aneurysms.


ENERGY DRINKS
Energy food and drink are not only dangerous due to their high caffeine content, but they are also bad for your health. 8.4 fl. oz. of Red Bull contains 27g of sugar. There are 54g of sugar in 16oz Monster energy food and drink, according to myfitnesspal.


MICROWAVABLE POPCORN
The artificial butter flavoring on the popcorn is poisonous to the body. There is harmful Perfluorooctanoic acid in the bag and it consists of toxic preservatives. However, it’s hard to envisage a movie without any popcorn; if you really need to satisfy this craving, consider air popping popcorn on the stove and using just a slight bit of coconut oil.


FLAVORED COFFEE DRINKS
Our go-to drink opening thing in the morning, coffee, may actually be detrimental to our diets. Depending on how you like it prepared, you may be overwhelming a ridiculous amount of sugar. One grande Caramel Frappuccino from Starbucks contains 66g of sugar. Other sugary coffee drinks include Dunkin’ Donuts Vanilla Chai 46g, Au Bon Pain Frozen Caramel Latte 91g, and McDonald’s McCafe Mocha 42g.


SOY
“Soy alternatives have been deem a better alternative than dairy and a great vegetarian option to choose from a good source of protein, but its phytoestrogens can mimic the effects of the female hormone estrogen,” O’Meara says. “This can be a real hormone disrupter for females.”


LATTES
A small size cafe latte at Starbucks contains 190 calories, 17 grams of sugar and 150 mg of caffeine. A small white chocolate mocha Frappuccino has 38 grams of sugar, and only a tiny portion of it comes starting milk. Also, be honest, do you really get a small-size of anything at a coffee shop? You’re better off sticking to regular coffee with (steamed) milk.


CHEESECAKE
If a delicious and pale yellow slice of cheesecake is your go-to dessert, you may want to reconsider. The cream cheese, sugar, salt, eggs, sour cream, and whipped cream call for a high-caloric disaster. One slice of commercially prepared cheesecake contains about 18 grams of fat, 8 grams of which are saturated.


FATTY FISH
“Fatty Fish is an amazing source of omega 3 and should without doubt be in your diet but where your fish is sourced could be the problem. Many cheaper sources of salmon that are farm fished and sourced are fed on natural sources - think pesticides for fish,” O’Meara says. “This earnings you are adding a chemical storm to your body. Always look for wild natural sourced salmon preferably wild Alaskan salmon.”


GLUTEN FREE
“The trend of gluten free is at its all time high; yes some people actually truly are gluten intolerant, but a major surge in the wellness industry has led people down the aisle in the super market stocking up on gluten free products and not actually thinking that they are purchasing overly process foods rather than just opting for fresh produce,” O’Meara says. “Yes being gluten free does have some benefits to gut health but forget the gluten free aisle and the cost you are spending as these products are nothing more than refined, processed junk foods.”


DIET SODA
Drinking diet soda has be linked to the development of metabolic syndrome and obesity. In a study conducted by the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, people who drank two or additional diet sodas a day had waist sizes that were six times better than those who didn’t drink diet soda.
