      High calorie foods disguised as health foods!

      When we say the word health foods, our mind begins ticking boxes on salads, soups and so on. However, the fact is that not all of these are created equal, some actually are high caloried monsters! Here’s a look.

      Soups

      Every fitness conscious soul believes that soups are light, refreshing and light on the calories. However, cream-based soups may be delicious but they pack in the calories. Instead, choose broth-based soups such as vegetable or chicken noodle soup, cream-free tomato soups and stews.

      Granola

      This so-called health food can prove to be quite high in calories, fat and sugar. Usually, granola is made from nutrient-rich ingredients such as nuts, seeds, oats, and dried fruit but the culprits are ingredients such as chocolate chips and sugary syrups that come with store-bought granola.

      Salads

      When you are on a diet, what do you pick? A salad is [probably on top of your list. However, salads, again may be fresh and healthy only based on the ingredients. Salads covered with fat-filled toppings like cheese, creamy dressings, bacon, and croutons can be counter-productive when you are trying to lose weight.

      Smoothies

      It’s best to make your smoothies at home where you have better control over ingredients or hand-pick in ingredients if you are ordering them. You may not even realize it but sugary syrups and processed protein powders will pack in up to 1,000 calories at fast food chain smoothies.

      Fruit juices

      All-natural fruit juice can give you Vitamins and minerals that you find in whole fruits. However, there is a catch, portion-control is a must. Most of us tend to drink more than we should. Instead, eat a real fruit.

      Pretzels

      This popular snack is lower in fat compared to potato chips but this too is on e of the so-called healthy snacks to be limited.
