walk down any supermarket aisle and you'll find lots of fruits with health claims on it low-fat low-sugar gluten-free zero calories vegan and more well they're supposed to be healthier for you but are they really don't be fooled these health claims are mainly a marketers way to make a spend more and feel good thinking that you're consuming something that's gonna help with your waistline the truth is a large majority of so-called diet foods are actually filled with sodium trans fat artificial sugars and more ingredients which we can barely pronounce if eaten regularly these foods may even sabotage your weight loss goals here are my top seven diet foods that are going to make you fat number one diet soda drinks but it's zero calories isn't weight loss all about calorie in and calories out well yes and no yes diet soda drinks may contain zero calories but do you know that drinking it on a regular basis can stimulate your appetite and increase cravings for more sugary foods that's because most diet soda drinks contain artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and aspartame ranks 200 times sweeter

than your white table sugar and what it does is that instead of satisfying your sugar cravings it actually prolongs your sugar cravings so you're still being deprived from having real sugar as a result you're more likely to consume other sugary fruit and drinks which can eventually lead to weight gain a study found that diet soda drinkers had a 70% greater increase in waist circumference compared to non app drinkers here's a tip replace your daily diet fizzy drinks with sparkling water or make your own naturally infused fruity sparkling water protein bars gosh I have no time for a proper meal but look I'm having a protein bar it can 20 grams of protein and only one gram of sugar so I'm still hitting my protein intake can I just say that that's absolute rubbish we see those gym addicts often consuming protein bars as their pre-workout or even on-the-go snack for the busy people but are they really healthy yes it may be low in sugar but again sugar is often replaced by artificial sweeteners and when you look at the calorie count it's often just as high as a regular chocolate bar

which is typically between 180 to 220 calories plus you might not even feel like you've eaten a meal just by eating one bar so chances are you might even reach for another bar and that's a whopping 400 calories you might as well just eat a hamburger at least you feel satisfied remember this nothing from a packet can ever replace real nutritious food here's a tip consume real foods such as eggs whole fruits nuts and seeds oats and vegetables and do check out my video on healthy snack ideas next low-fat or fat-free foods low-fat milk fat free yogurt zero fat dressing you name it there's always a low-fat or fat-free alternative for everything fat is not your enemy there are healthy fats which we should be consuming your body needs fat to burn fat and also to help with absorption of some essential nutrients and vitamins such as vitamin A D and K and antioxidants from foods such as leafy greens carrots and tomatoes remember this low-fat does not mean low calories or sugar-free when food manufacturers remove the fat from foods they will inevitably remove some of the flavors now in order to make up for the

lack of flavors they will have to add a whole bunch of other stuff such as sugar high fructose corn syrup or other kind of artificial sweeteners consume full fat yogurt and avoid low-fat yogurt the healthiest salad dressings are made without sugar and contain natural healthy fats such as olive oil which provide benefits for heart health it is so much better to make your own dressing using olive oil vinegar and some spices it is that simple next gluten-free processed foods I will never forget a conversation I had with a girlfriend who was on a diet let's have dinner oh I've eaten what did you eat gluten free potato chips my mind went if you understand where gluten comes from and what food contains gluten you would already know that potato has no gluten and any potato chips you buy will be gluten free like I said it's just another marketing gimmick to put the gluten free label onto a product to make us think that it is healthy gluten-free cookies muffins or cakes look processed foods where the gluten free or not are not good for us and can cause weight gain it doesn't give you the allowance

to consume more and it is not a good option for weight loss if you read the ingredients list it will still contain high sugar unhealthy fat and calories sometimes gluten-free products may even contain more sugar fats and calories just to make up for the lack of taste if you want to reduce your gluten free intake opt for naturally gluten-free foods like meats nuts fruits and vegetables instead of processed gluten-free foods the next healthy food granola if you're eating granola for breakfast you've got to stop it is constantly being advertised as a healthier choice but the reality is it is not it should be treated as dessert because the sugar content is as high as desert hence should only be eaten occasionally yes granola contains lots of fiber and iron from oats while the nuts and seeds add heart-healthy unsaturated fats however they are very high in calories because they contain additional oil and sugar which we just don't need a quarter cup of granola typically contains more than 200 calories and about 20 grams of sugar that's just like

having chocolate éclairs and trust me that one small portion will not fill you up so chances are you will be consuming double or triple of that portion so breakfast can rack up to 700 calories and 60 grams of sugar and you're wondering why am I not losing weight I'm consuming granola for breakfast here's a tip opt for muesli instead or even better make your own where you're able to add more rolled oats and have the nuts seeds and dried fruits in small quantities plus it is so much cheaper vitamin spots or energy drinks these are often sneaky and wasted calories that we just don't need most of the time sports drinks were designed with high performance athletes in mind these drinks contain electrolytes aka salt and carbs aka sugar to keep them hydrated and replenish lost minerals such as sodium potassium and chloride especially after a prolonged intense exercise now hitting the treadmill for half an hour and then lifting some weights does not require nearly the same amount of carbs or electrolytes we can get these nutrients from the food we normally eat this vitamin spot or energy drinks contain just as much and sometimes even

more sugar than a can of soda if you want vitamin carry through supplements not some sort of a vitamin drink that contains a whopping 33 grams of sugar if you really feel that you need that extra energy boost for your workout then fill your body with enough healthy carbs and protein before and after such as bananas yogurt oatmeal eggs or go for supplements such as BCAA or a protein shake these are much healthier options compared to a sugary drink and just stay hydrated on plain refreshing water and finally 100% real vegetable chips made from 100% real vegetable well potato chips is also made from 100% real potato if you think that you can feel less guilty enjoying eating kale bits of zucchini don't also forget about the vegetable oil salt and potato starch added into the mixture to produce real 100% veggie chips here's a comparison one ounce serving of vegetable chips contains 134 calories and 6 point 6 grams of fat of which 0.5 grams is saturated and 1 ounce serving of potato chips contains 154 calories and ten point three grams of fat of which 1.1 grams are saturated yes it is a slightly

better option but it's not going to do your diet wonders and you should not feel good or think that you're going to get your five a day because chances are most of the nutrients and vitamins are gone the best option is of course stick to fresh stuff enjoy fresh veggie with boomers or bake your own veggie chips to cut back on the fat and sodium the bottom line is nothing beats real natural food consume more natural food and reduce on processed food and remember do not be fooled by the health claims always flip the products and read the ingredients list if there are too many ingredients which you can't even pronounce or if sugar is listed as the first two ingredients well it is best to avoid it I believe in balance and moderation of course you can still enjoy these foods in moderation but not on a daily basis what other healthy foods are causing you to gain weight or ruin your diet let me know in the comments below be sure to give this video a thumbs up share this video and subscribe to my youtube channel do check out more fitness tips healthy recipes and workout videos all the best
