✓ Granola: It’s all carbs. Granola contains tons of sugar and 1 cup can easily amount to upwards of 500 calories.
✓ Gluten-free foods (if you’re not gluten sensitive): Going gluten-free for the heck of it may actually do more harm than good because gluten-free foods usually have less dietary fibre and other nutrients.
✓ Gatorade: It has loads of sugar. There are lots of other sources of electrolytes out there!
✓ Low-fat foods: A lot of food that is ‘low in fat’ is actually higher in calories because they add sugar to it. Besides, removing fat means removing flavour.
✓ Dehydrated fruit: Dried fruit is another sugar-trap. Not only that, much of the vitamin content is lost in the dehydration process.
✓ Almond milk: You have to get the unsweetened plain one. Otherwise it is full of added sugars.
✓ Flat bread: Same calories, but flat.
