The 2 fattening foods that I’ll discuss in this post might actually shock you… most people erroneously believe these 2 foods are “healthy.”  In my years working as a Certified Nutrition Specialist, it usually surprises people when I mention they should consider excluding these foods from their diet.

Everybody these days knows how bad trans fats and high fructose corn syrup are for you, so I’ll spare you the lecture on those… Instead, read on to see a couple foods that may shock you that they may be packing on the fat.

The first type of food that most people believe is healthy is wheat products… this includes most breads, cereals, bagels, muffins, pasta, crackers, etc.  Yes, I’m including “whole wheat” in the category of this fattening food.

First of all, a large proportion of the population has some degree of intolerance for the gluten in wheat and some other grains. Full blown celiacs are the most sensitive to it, but what most people don’t realize is that most of the population was never meant to eat large quantities of wheat.  The human digestive system has never adapted to large amounts of wheat in the diet.

From my experience with many clients, when they take my advice and eliminate wheat from their diet for 2-3 weeks to see if they start to lose weight and feel better, it almost always makes a HUGE difference.  Many times, they start losing body fat much faster, and they also finally get rid of headaches and indigestion that plagued them for years.  Sometimes even skin problems go away when wheat is eliminated from the diet.

The second example of the worst fattening foods that shocks many people because it is considered “healthy” is — fruit juice.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not an anti-carb advocate… I actually think most fruits are VERY healthy for us. However, we weren’t meant to separate the juice from the rest of the fruit and only drink the high calorie sugary mixture… leaving behind the fiber and many other beneficial components of the fruit.

When you only drink the juice of fruits (apple juice and orange juice being 2 of the biggest culprits in the western diet), you aren’t getting the appetite satisfying effect of the fiber in the fruit, and you’re left craving more carbs.  Also, the fiber in whole fruit helps to slow down the blood sugar response when eating whole fruit compared to fruit juice.

Bottom line… over-consuming fruit juices makes you fat.  Conversely, eating whole fruits including all of the fiber helps you maintain a healthy balanced diet and high nutrient density (as long as the rest of your diet is whole unprocessed foods as well).

Enjoy, and good luck with your nutrition!
