The New Year has come and gone and you’ve been doing anything and everything in your power to make sure goals are reached and resolutions are met. Your workout routine has been on point and your diet has been in check BUT you still are having trouble consistently reaching your weight loss goals. There is no sign of junk food in your cabinets and you’ve have stayed away from processed foods completely. There are many foods labeled as “healthy” hidden with FAT and CALORIES. These healthy foods should be consumed in careful moderation IF you intend to reach your weight loss goals. Just because a food is considered healthy doesn’t mean you can eat endless amounts of it!
1 Avocado: Calories 322, Fat 29g, Carbohydrates 17g, Protein 4gAlthough avocados are a rich source of nutrients such as fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, and Folic Acid they also contain an extremely high amount of fat. Just one single avocado contains nearly 30 grams of fat! For many people this is beyond half their daily recommended fat intake. With over 300 calories it is quite possibly the most calorically dense fruit found in nature.
1 Serving of Almonds: Calories 163, Fat 15g, Carbohydrates 6g, Protein 6gAlmonds are said to be one of the healthiest nuts available due to their high concentration of Vitamins and Minerals such as Potassium, Fiber, and Protein. BUT did you also know that a single serving of almonds has 15 grams of Fat? People tend to over eat almonds due to their reputation as the healthiest nut on earth. A serving of almonds is generally 28 almonds and a larger sized bag may have up to 15 servings. You may EASILY be eating hundreds of calories without even noticing! Measure out a serving size and put the bag away to save countless amounts of calories.
Per 100g: Calories 471, Fat 20g, Carbohydrate 64g, Protein 10gWhen people think healthy they may reach for a granola bar or simply have a bowl of it. BUT be careful because a full sized bowl of granola will have nearly 500 CALORIES and 64 grams of CARBS! At this rate you would be better off with a bowl of some popular sugary cereal.
Per 2 Tablespoons: Calories 190, Fat 16g, Carbohydrates 6g, Protein 8gPeanut butter is quite possibly the most versatile and best tasting spread on the planet. Not to mention the fact that a single serving of peanut butter is ONLY TWO tablespoons. Let’s be real when we ask, how many spoonfuls are you indulging in each time you open the jar?
Per 100g: Calories 300, Fat 1g, Carbohydrates 79g, Protein 3gYou remember those little tiny boxes of raisins your mom threw in your lunch bag every day? We all thought they were healthy as a kid BUT as an adult we finally learned the truth! Don’t be fooled because these guys are hiding 300 Calories and nearly 80 Carbohydrates in a moderately sized package! Probably more than you think.
Per 1 cup: Calories 111, Fat 0.5g, Carbohydrates 26g, Protein 2gFor years juices have been mislabeled as healthy food beverages full of antioxidants and vital nutrients. BUT did you know that a single glass of Orange Juice may contain over HALF your daily recommended allowable sugar intake? Stick to low and zero calorie beverages such as water and black coffee as better options.
Per 1 slice: Calories 128, Fat 2g, Carbohydrates 24g, Protein 4gOften times whole grain breads have been marketed as healthier substitutes to their more processed white bread counterparts. Though whole grain breads contain less refined sugar they also contain 25 grams of carbs in a single slice. The nutritional value of whole grain bread is extremely similar to white breads. They might not be such a great alternative after all.
Per 1 Tablespoon: Calories 120, Fat 14g, Carbohydrates 0g, Protein 0gOlive Oil is commonly thought to be the best cooking oil on the market for its rich antioxidants, Vitamin E, and cancer prevention abilities. BUT just one SINGLE tablespoon will contain nearly one-quarter of the recommended daily fat intake. A zero calorie non-stick spray may be a viable alternative to cut out unnecessary calories in your diet.
