Bad Idea: Low-Carb Ice Cream

Unfortunately, many products featuring lower carbohydrates are loaded with fat and calories. The primary ingredients of low-carb ice cream are commonly vegetable oil and milk fat, resulting in nearly as much saturated fat as two or three burgers.

Better Idea: Switch to a low-sugar dessert – they tend to keep things friendly by keeping the fat and calories low as well.

4. “Healthy” Fruit & Yogurt Smoothie

Bad Idea: Yogurt & Fruit Smoothie

Yes, words like “yogurt” and “fruit” and “smoothie” automatically make you think it’s healthy, but these smoothies generally contain zero fiber, but are chock-full of sugar.

Better Idea: Try kefir. It’s a fermented dairy product from the Middle East, and it has been shown to lower cholesterol, enhance the immune system, and provide stomach-friendly bacteria.

5. “Healthy Salad

Bad Idea: Any Salad With Regular Dressing

Salads that are classified as healthy, particularly the ones featured at restaurants, always sound so wonderful, loaded with vitamins, fiber and lean proteins. But, many of them are often drowned in extremely fattening dressing, which cancel out those healthy benefits.

Better Idea: It’s a good idea to always request to have any dressing served on the side. It’s an even better idea to ask for the lightest dressing possible on the side, such as a reduced-fat vinaigrette.
