An alarming amounts of items in supermarkets sold as reduced fat or healthy options are actually concealing unbelievable amounts of hidden calories, fats, sugars and salt which are not healthy foods.
Here’s some of the worst, so called healthy foods.
1. Prepared Salads
“Salads”, surely not! Many pre-prepared salads sold in supermarkets and restaurants actually contain more calories than a Big Mac.
Salad leaves, vegetables and fruits are incredibly good for you, but it’s the mayonnaise, salad dressings and artificial flavourings that pile on the pounds.
An average shop bought chicken salad with dressing contains 730 calories, 48 grams of fat and 1,280 milligrams of sodium.
Want a healthy salad? Make your own and drizzle a bit of rapeseed oil and lemon juice over it.
