Pomegranate Juice 1
According to the federal judge, Pom used “insufficient” evidence to prove that their products “treat, prevent or reduce the risk of heart disease, prostate cancer or erectile dysfunction.”
Non-Fried Chips 2
Just because a chip is “baked” or “low fat” doesn’t make it healthy, since they are still made with refined grains or starch. Instead opt for chips made with whole grains and fried in olive or canola oil.
Flavored Greek Yogurt 3
Although Greek yogurt itself is good for you, the flavored variety actually has too much sugar and therefore negates the health benefits of the yogurt. Try putting in fresh fruit instead.
Vitamin Water 5
Any water with vitamins in it is not much better than any other sugary drink. There’s no proof this kind of drink is good for you, plus it contains more calories than plain water and eating fruits.
Fried Foods 6
Frying foods increases calories, but it’s not necessarily unhealthy as long as the food is fried in healthful oil (olive or canola) instead of butter, shortening or transfat. Plus, eaten in moderation some vitamins actually need fat to be absorbed into the body. Things like fried carrots, sweet potatoes (beta carotene), fried tomatoes (lycopene) and fried spinach or kale chips (lutein/zeaxanthin) aren’t too bad for you.
