(BlackDoctor.org) — There’s so much diet information out there, isn’t there? So many ways of approaching your own personal diet plan. Too many diet food choices.
…and too many foods that aren’t even worth your time and/or money, that can more than likely add more fat and sugar than you need…and cost you more.
What are some of the top useless “healthy” foods?
1. “Healthy” Eggs
Bad Idea: Veggie Quiche
Most of these tend to include eggs nestled in a pastry shell. These shells generally contain a lot of saturated fat. The USDA recommends you consume no more than 20 grams of saturated fat a day, and this one dish is nearly there.
Better Idea: For a veggie-heavy breakfast without the cardiovascular repercussions, switch to a sandwich with veggies and egg whites – these are generally lower in calories, saturated fat and sodium.
2. “Healthy” Cereal
Bad Idea: Granola
A single bowl of most granolas contains a quarter of your day’s calorie intake (not even including the milk). They can also contain more sugar that a candy bar.
Better Idea: Keep your diet happy by opting for multigrain cereals like Kashi, which generally contain lower calories and fat, but are powerful sources of fiber and other important nutrients.
3. “Healthy” Dessert
