Healthy Food That Is Junk Food In Disguise
1.Fruit Juices – Which Are Basically Just Liquid Sugar! Sometimes there isn’t even any actual fruit in there, just chemicals that taste like fruit. What you’re drinking is basically just fruit-flavored sugar water.
2.Margarine – Margarine is not food.Period. It is an assembly of chemicals and refined oils that have been made to look and taste like food. Not surprisingly, the Framingham Heart Study showed that people who replace butter with margarine are actually more likely to die from heart disease
3.Sports Drinks – These drinks contain electrolytes (salts) and sugar, which can be useful for athletes in many cases. However, most regular people don’t need any additional salts, and they certainly have no need for liquid sugar.-
4.Low-Carb Junk Foods – Food manufacturers have caught up on the trend and brought various low-carb “friendly” processed foods to the market. These products can be consumed occasionally without compromising the metabolic adaptation that comes with low-carb eating
5.Gluten-Free Junk Foods – The problem with these foods, is that they are usually just as bad as their gluten-containing counterparts, if not worse. These are highly processed foods that are very low in nutrients and often made with refined starches that lead to very rapid spikes in blood sugar.
6.Vegan Junk Foods – There are many processed vegan foods on the market, often sold as convenient replacements for non-vegan foods. But it’s important to keep in mind that these are usually highly processed, factory made products that are bad for just about anyone, including vegans.
