Are your diet foods making you fat

Trying to figure out what to eat and how to eat is an age long dilemma. Below are five sneaky “healthy” foods that could be causing weight gain and inflammation.

Skim milk

Low fat, low calorie right? Nope. Skim milk tends to have more sugar and over all less nutritional value. Try whole milk for more nutrients, or if looking to cut calories, try unsweetened almond milk.

Low Fat Dressings

Besides all the extra unnecessary oils, low fat dressings/condiments are typically loaded with sugar and other crappy chemicals to make it taste remotely good. Try making your own dressings using olive oil, vinegar and fresh herbs.

Shelf Bought Bread

Have you ever wondered why shelf bread lasts FOREVER? Because its packed full of inflammatory preservatives. You’re better off buying fresh or even frozen. Ezekiel Bread is a great choice.

Beyond Burgers

No. Just no. Check out the label. There is seriously 7,386,937 ingredients. Remember, if doesn’t come from the ground, or have a mother…you’re probably best avoiding it. Choose real meat, sourced from a humane environment without added preservatives or hormones.

Flavored Oatmeal and Yogurt

Again, SUGAR and FAKE ingredients. Go for plain old oats or yogurt and add in fresh fruit and honey for a better alternative.
