Food that fool us??!

Well I was just reading some magazines and collecting information about several foods and I realised that some food actually fool us! They act like they’re better than other foods that harm us but guess what? they’re still bad. Here’s the  list of these foods:

  1. Baked Potato Chips: well no one ever thought they’re good but some of us tend to believe they are better than normal chips. Yes they are lower in fat but they still have a lot of calories and low in nutrients. The fiber level in them is low so they don’t actually fill us and we will feel the need to eat again soon after eating them.
  2. Gummy Fruit Snacks: how many of us say well let’s just eat some of gummy fruits so we don’t eat a whole bar of chocolate, a cake or even diner? I know I’ve said this a lot of time thinking that gummy fruits are better than having actual food.. well they indeed have some juice in them but in a very small quantity and have some vitamins in them. But they contain fructose corn syrup which according to studies is linked to obesity, and hydrogenated oils that are bad for the hearts health. So gummy fruits go off the snack list.
  3. Light Ice cream: the word “light” tend to make us feel better about eating ice cream. Well it’s here to fool us because a light ice cream doesn’t necessarily have less calories than a regular one. And did you ever notice that light ice creams lack the “taste of real ice cream” so they leave us unsatisfied and we might eat another one?
  4. Diet Soda: Again the word “Diet” does it to make us fall for diet soda. They say it contains less sugar, it’s true it’s contains less sugar and more saccharose so it’s mainly harmful just like normal soda. It’s also one of the causes of belly fat.

This list will be continued because the search for these foods is still going on

Cheers 😉
