There are too many people today who buy “diet” products that turn out not to be dietary at all. And this is because companies manipulate us with false advertising and promises of maintaining a healthy weight.
It is for this reason that I have decided to write an article that exposes the reality behind these products. Ready to go? Here we go!
Number 1: Coffee fashion.
We’ll go to the trendy café and order a latte. Well, I don’t know if you guys knew that latte coffee has a lot more milk than coffee. And milk is pure fat. We’re already taking 340 calories. You have two choices. One, that you order the portion a little smaller and order the skim milk, and option number two is that you get used to being a good coffee maker and drink the pure coffee;
You can also choose an espresso or American coffee, another type of coffee where you really feel the flavor of coffee and that way you are not consuming so much fat for pleasure.
Number 2: The Trend of cereal bars,
These “harmless” bars that always come out with your picture of apple, peach, etc. Well, each of these bars has 140 calories and nothing less than 13 grams of sugar. And no protein, not many things that can actually be food for you. And yet it’s consumed by everyone leaving the gym, etc., without knowing that you’re actually losing all the work you’ve just done.
Another thing I’m sorry to tell you because I know that many people drink it instead of water, and it’s because they don’t like the taste of water so much, you know what I’m talking about?
Number 3: Sports drinks
It’s true that they replace salts and electrolytes, but each of these drinks has 158 calories and 33 grams of sugar. I mean, you who just came out of breaking your back at the gym, you’re replenishing everything you’ve consumed. Sorry, but it’s true! What’s much better? Put some lemon slices in your water, or orange… any natural drink. But forget about sports drinks because they’re not helping you with your goals.
Number 4: The salads
Every time you order a salad you get that creamy dressing, sometimes we even ask for a double serving because it doesn’t seem enough and that’s pure fat and calories! Each of these double servings can contain up to 900 calories, more than a double burger! You’d better go, eat your burger and be honest with yourself! Better tell the waiter, bring me such a salad with such and such a dressing. What is recommended is olive oil, vinegar, salt, lemon, etc… but not those creamy dressings that in themselves are saboteurs of diet.
Number 5: Tea
Tea is very beneficial for us, I love for example to drink tea at work, I am always drinking my green tea or other varieties. I even like to make it cold and put it in the refrigerator, but what I do not do is go to buy tea ready in taps or other places because that bottle with which you think you are very healthy walking around the city, if you see the ingredients, more than anything has artificial flavors and pure sugar!
That it’s better than a soda, definitely, but it’s not healthy the way they want to sell it to you. So you know five of the things you have to take care of. It’s not that we can’t eat anything either, we simply have to know how to choose and get our palate used to better options.
