5 Sneaky (and Harmful) Foods

April 21, 2015 2 min read

By now some of you  have started exercising, bought whole foods, and have restocked your kitchen with all the essentials to keep you on track to succeed in your fitness goals; but have you tossed out all those items that could derail your progress? Here are 5 sneaky foods that can actually cause you more harm than good when it comes to weight loss. Some of these may seem like a healthy choice but in reality they can be the reason you are not reaching the progress goals you have set. 1) Wraps:  It is a common misconception that wraps are a better form of carbohydrates for you than bread is.  However, if you take a look at a nutrition label of these wraps you will find that most are laden with chemicals and include many soybean and hydrogenated oils (thats how they keep their shape).  A better option in whole wheat (no high fructose corn syrup) breads. 2) Coffee Creamer:  A chemically derived substance that has a specific additive that has been proven to cause liver and tissue damage in mice.  In addition it is also loaded with partially hydrogenated oils aka trans fats and artificial sweeteners.  Opt for whole milk if you like your coffee creamer to be a little on the heavy side. 3) Pretzels:  Pretzels have no nutritional value whatsoever. No matter what anyone tells you, pretzels are not good for anything but raising your blood pressure with their high sodium content. Pretzels have often been tagged as a healthy alternative to chips, but the carb content is actually higher than potato chips. 4) Canned Vegetables:  Opt for fresh or frozen vegetables due to the increased risk of Bisphenol-A (BPA) contamination in canned and bottled items.  BPA is known to cause endocrine and fertility problems in women and pose extreme health risks to fetuses and infants in the development stage. 5) Margarine: Margarine is just one molecule away from plastic.  If you leave margarine out ants will not even eat it or carry it to their nest.  It is  a dangerous food that elevates cholesterol, causes weight gain, and is a contributor to many heart diseases.
