For many of us, nothing means breakfast more than a tall glass of orange juice. How bad for you can those baked potato chips be? And a granola bar seems like a healthy afternoon snack. But, are these traditional health foods really good for you?
It depends. Being aware of the calories, fat, fiber, and sodium in the foods you eat should be part of your weight loss plan. Serving sizes play a critical role. Check the labels.
You might be surprised to find out that a tall glass of orange juice usually ranges from about 12-14 ounces instead of the recommended 8 ounces of juice. By limiting yourself to 8 ounces, you can save about 60 calories!
Similarly, granola bars often contain a lot of calories, fat and sugar. Many are equivalent to a candy bar! If you want to indulge your sweet tooth, try fresh fruit or low fat yogurt.
Don’t blow your weight loss plan on faux healthy foods! Stay tuned for more tips on healthy eating and reading labels.
