3 ‘Healthy’ Snack Foods That Don’t Help You Reduce Cellulite

Posted by Nima Rafizadeh on
You know that there is no ‘magic pill’ for managing your weight and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Instead, it’s a combination of factors, including a healthy, balanced diet, physical activity, and even getting a good night’s sleep. Snacking can be a very important part of that healthy diet. Healthy snacks and healthy snacking habits can not only give you lots of great nutrients that you might not get elsewhere in your diet, but it can help satisfy the hunger pangs that sometimes cause you to overeat. But finding healthy snack foods is not as easy as it might seem. There are a many snacks that look healthy, either in their appearance or in their packaging, but aren’t really much better than the unhealthy snacks you used to enjoy. Here are just a few examples to show you what we mean.

1. Energy Bars & Granola Bars

Who would argue that a granola bar isn’t that healthy for you? After all, you can actually see the oats, and almonds and coconut, and all sorts of other healthy stuff right there in the bar. But a majority of energy and granola bars are covered in saturated fats and sugar to make them taste better. Before you eat one, check the ingredients and nutrition labels. Better yet, it’s easy to make your own, very healthy granola bars.

2. Flavored Greek Yogurt

If healthy snack foods were celebrities, Greek yogurt would be one of the biggest stars in the world. There’s no denying its health benefits, which include, like all yogurts, being a great source of protein, calcium, potassium, zinc and vitamins B1 and B12, among other good stuff. Plus, Greek yogurt delivers probiotic bacteria for a healthier gut, fewer carbs, less lactose, and more protein and nutrients than regular yogurt.

But, that great reputation doesn’t mean that all Greek yogurt is so wonderful. Again, in the interests of improving the somewhat bland taste, manufacturers add fruit flavours that can make the yogurt sound even healthier. Except the opposite is true. In addition to the actual fruit, they throw in lots of sugar; up to 7 teaspoons in some cases. Instead of buying flavoured greek yogurt, buy the plain yogurt and add the fruit yourself.

3. 100-Calorie Packs

These are like the greatest gift ever to anyone who misses all the unhealthy snacks they used to crave. Sure, the 100-calorie packs of potato chips and cookies are full of unhealthy stuff, but it’s only 100 calories, so it can’t be that bad, right?

Wrong. First, in addition to the calories, you’re getting high levels of sodium, and saturated fats. But, perhaps worst of all, 100-calorie packs can be the downfall of all your weight-loss and cellulite-reducing efforts by keeping you hooked on exactly the foods that caused the problems in the first place.

Yes, reducing your cellulite means you must make a number of healthy lifestyle choices. But don’t let unhealthy snacks masquerading as the good stuff ruin everything else you are trying to do.
