Not all food items masquerading as “healthy” or low-fat deliver what they claim. Click through to find out which food items you should avoid while losing weight.
1) Soy sauce
Despite being low in calories, soy sauce is extremely high on sodium that can leave you bloated and increase the risk of hypertension. There are many low-sodium soy sauce options available these days but they are not significantly lower than the regular ones. Use sparingly.
2) Multi-grain bread
All those pretty seeds sitting on top of the loaf look healthy and inviting. But it’s what the bread is made of that really matters. Multi-grain may not necessarily mean whole grain. Make sure to check the labels.
3) Cereals sold in value-size boxes
According to research by Cornell University’s Food and Brand Lab, people consume up to 22 per cent more when they eat from larger packages. Large packets may be easy on the wallet but certainly not on health.
