There are so many food and drinks out there marketed as “healthy” when they are actually no better than donuts and soda. These food and drinks are actually way worse than known junk food, because you will eat more of them thinking they are fine and healthy.
Below are the top “healthy” food and drinks that aren’t healthy:
Skim milk means it fat-free and has had all of the fat removed. Always be weary of food or drink that is labeled fat-free, because that generally means something else (usually sugar and artificial flavorings) has been added to make it taste better. One cup of skim milk may have 11 grams of sugar – about half as much sugar as you should have in one day!
Fix it: Instead of skim milk, go for nut milk like almond milk.
Granola is one of the worst offenders because the serving size is super small and so it is easy to eat double the serving or more in one sitting without even realizing. Granola is loaded in sugar and should be avoided – yes, even if “healthy” sugar was used including honey and maple syrup. Once sugar is in your body, it doesn’t matter where it came from.
All of those drinks that are marketed for sports and endurance, are nothing more than artificial food coloring mixed with sugar and some salt. Instead go for water, or natural electrolytes such as with coconut water.
Margarine is loaded with highly inflammatory trans fats and should be avoided at all costs. Instead go for the real stuff! Use grass-fed butter – not only does it taste better but it is much better for you.
As discussed above, always be weary of any food that is labeled low-fat or fat-free. Assume that if a salad dressing is labeled low-fat, it has had sugar or other processed additives added to it.
Wheat is not what it used to be. Wheat is highly inflammatory and not much better than regular white bread – if any better at all.
Unless this is a vegetable juice, this juice is not doing you any favors. Instead make a smoothie at home which will still have parts of the fruit and vegetable fibers that will help to keep you full and blunt the effect of any sugars that might be present in it.
Rice cakes generally have a high glycemic index, meaning they favor a spike in blood sugar and insulin production. So even though rice cakes may be lower calorie, they may rev your appetite and put your body in a fat-storing state.
The only oatmeal you should eat should be steel-cut or Irish oatmeal – something that takes longer than 5 minutes to cook or heat up. The worst oatmeal is the prepackaged flavored oatmeal that has been loaded with sugar and other artificial ingredients.
Dried fruit is often loaded in sugar. Instead go for dehydrated fruit and always check the nutrition label to make sure sugar hasn’t been added back to it.
Individuals will often think that frozen yogurt is healthy because it has the name yogurt in it. Well, unfortunately frozen yogurt will often have just as much fat and sugar as regular yogurt and is not making you any healthier.
Wraps are deceiving because they seem to be lighter than using sandwich bread, but they may have just as many carbs and usually have lower fiber compared to just regular bread. Unless the wrap says low-carb or high-fiber, assume the wrap is no better than sandwich bread.
These colorful bowls are all over the place now and are super deceiving because they are actually loaded with sugar and low in fiber. Have you ever looked at the nutrition facts of these bowls? The sugar is around 40 grams which is almost double the amount of total sugar you should have in one day – yikes! Instead of having an acai bowl for a meal, share one as a dessert.
About 99% of the cereals out there are highly processed and loaded with sugar and inflammatory ingredients such as gluten. Eating a bowl of sugar in the morning is just setting yourself up for mood swings and hunger the rest of the day. Skip the cereal and cook up some eggs instead!

BUST: Thread the tape measure under your arms, across your shoulder blades at back and around the fullest part of your bust at the front. Relax your arms at your sides while keeping the tape parallel with the floor. If this measurement falls on the ½ centimeter, round up.
WAIST: Bend to one side to find the natural indentation in your torso. This is your natural waist. Run the tape around your natural waistline, keeping the tape parallel to the floor and one finger between your body and the tape for a more comfortable fit.
HIP: Stand on a level surface with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your hips and bottom, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
