Today, I want to go to more than 5 foods that are marketed as good for you, but in reality they are making you gain weight and body fat. The crazy part is that right now, even if you have a lot of experience keeping your diet clean, you might think that these foods are healthy and useful. But the reality is that any of these so-called healthy foods that I am about to review can cause you to get fat instead of losing weight. Let's jump to the right and start first with protein bars. I know you probably did not expect protein bars because they promote themselves as an ideal source of protein if you are constantly on the move. And there's no doubt that most protein bars will provide a lot of the amino acids you need to recover, nourish your muscles and stimulate your metabolism. But many of these protein bars help you recover and develop muscle at a price. And that price is extra body fat. The truth is that not all protein bars are created in the same way and I am sure that the protein bars that many of you are eating could make it much more difficult to stay lean. Realistically, there are four things you should keep in mind when choosing the correct protein bar if your goal is to stay slim. The first is that they usually contain a lot of sugar or artificial sweeteners to make them taste better. Without some type of sweetener, the protein bars would have a rough texture and a mild flavor. That's why most manufacturers feel the need to spice up the flavor with a little sugar. Sometimes, that can be as much as 30 grams of sugar per protein bar. This can make your healthy protein bar turn into a chocolate bar or a can of coke and, if you eat random snacks during the day, you will add too many excess calories to your diet. In fact, we can see how unhealthy many of these protein bars are when looking at a recent report from the insurance company Protectivity. In this report we analyzed the calories and sugar content of 50 popular protein bars. They found that one third of the bars contained more saturated fat than a Krispy Kreme glazed donut! On top of that, ten of them had more sugar than a Krispy Kreme donut. All that sugar increases your calorie count very quickly. When you have a protein bar that you can demolish in a few quick bites, but it still contains 400 calories, it's not hard to see how two or three bars a day can make your daily caloric intake too high. On top of that, the sugar found in these protein bars will be treated just like the sugar found in sweets, which means it will increase your insulin levels and make it much more difficult to burn fat. Another problem is that many protein bars use soy protein. The problem with many of these soy protein bars is that they can negatively affect your testosterone levels and raise your estrogen levels. Having a couple of bars of soy protein here and there will not raise estrogen levels, but if you are eating other sources of soybeans besides protein bars, it may cause unwanted changes in your hormones.
Portion control study that shows that we eat more foods that we think are healthy. . .
A 2013 review published in the European Journal of Nutrition reported a lower weight gain and a lower risk of obesity among people who consumed full-fat dairy products. New research reveals that when the amount of fat is reduced in the diet, it is replaced with sugar or carbohydrates, which can result in a series of lipid abnormalities.
