Eating in a balanced and healthy way can be a difficult task, especially when there are thousands of ways to turn a light meal into a combo filled with calories. How many times have we believed that we are eating a healthy snack or dish, when actually it was the complete opposite due to the great variety of toppings, sauces or simply down to our own bad habits when we eat?
Identifying our own inappropriate behavior will help us to avoid constantly interrupting our diet regime, allow us to eat healthily and achieve a fabulous body.
The most common errors are:
Vegetables are an excellent and light snack, but combining them with creamy dressings can turn them into a high-calorie snack, as a seasoning can contain up to 145 calories per two tablespoons. Therefore, using the combination of vegetables with dressings eventually will increase your weight.
How to avoid this:
Fresh water or fruit water are both better choices than carbonated drinks. However, if these drinks contain added sugar or sweeteners, drinking a litre or more could impact your weight due to the amount of calories it contains.
Skinless roast chicken or turkey sandwiches are light meals as well as very complete, but serving them with a layer of sauce is a common misconception and loads your sandwich full of calories. Barbecue sauce is a favorite and also one that contains one of the highest amounts of sugar.
Coffee and tea are widely known as drinks with health benefits, the problem is when we add sugar it can increase your intake of fats or carbohydrates.
