✓ 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.
