Fake Healthy Foods - Foods to Avoid!

Guess what! In the last 10 days I've lost 13lbs! I've done it via a strict KETO diet. In researching KETO, I've found a lot of other good things about nutrition I wish I'd known sooner. The products below don't have anything to do with the KETO diet, however, they good be foods you THINK you should eat, because they bill themselves as healthy. However, they're are fakes! Pretenders! Stay away from these faux healthy foods below.

Banana Chips

So tasty! However, they are normally deep friend and include extra sugar and fake flavoring. Stay away from these, if you want banana chips, bake your own in the oven!

Gluten Free Snacks

Many of these processed foods include a lot of refined additives and are not healthy. Unless you really NEED those pretzels or cookies in your diet, try homemade snacks or fruit instead.

Dried Fruit

These are PACKED with sugar and preservatives. Avoid these all together and eat fresh fruit or dry your own in a dehydrator. An inexpensive dehydrator is easy to obtain on Amazon and is good for making so many healthier snack alternatives.

Yogurt

Some yogurts have tons of sugar! I love yogurt and would never think of giving it up, but avoid the sugar overload by using plain Greek yogurt, add fruit and a drizzle of honey for a much more nutritious option.

Agave

Extremely processed and more fructose than high fructose corn syrup. SKIP the agave or use in moderation. Other sugar alternatives like honey are a better option.

Vegan Mayo

Tons of inflammatory here. SKIP Vegan mayo, just because it says Vegan doesn't mean it's great for you. Try making your own avocado or olive oil may as a better Clean Eating option.

Rice Cakes

They're made with white rise which can actually spike your blood sugar and create fat. Super high in carbs and very little nutrients.

Super Food Powers

Total waste of money here. They're very expensive and you're better off eating whole foods like fruits and vegetables for a non-processed option.

Couscous

This is just refined  wheat unless you buy a Whole Grain variety. It's just like eating white pasta. Waste of carbs and very little nutrients.

For your health sakes, skip ALL of these and look for whole, unprocessed foods for better nutrition.
