Everyone knows that oatmeal is healthier than a bowl of sugary cereal, and salad is better than a juicy burger. But did you know that some so-called healthy foods are just junk food in disguise? Those healthy options at the restaurant and on the grocery shelves are full of calories. Here are some foods to watch out for.
1. Salad Dressings
Salads are made with nutritious vegetables that provide essential nutrients and help you stay on track with your diet. But when you top them with nuts, shredded cheese, croutons and creamy dressings, you can sabotage your diet. Read the labels as some salad dressings pack as much as 300 calories per serving. Stick to sodium-free, light dressings and pay close attention to the serving size.
