18 Extremely Disappointing Facts About “Healthy" Foods

Every single food you eat is terrible for you, most likely.

5. Trail mix.


Most store-brand trail mixes are essentially delivery mechanisms for salt and sugar. Some handfuls have over 300 calories. Did you really think something with that many M&Ms in it was going to be good for you?

8. Light salad dressing.


Regular salad dressing helps your body absorb carotenoids, which reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease. The light stuff may have fewer calories, but it also has fewer health benefits. Isn't that why you were eating a salad in the first place?

13. Veggie chips.


Once veggies are processed into chips they lose a lot of what made them good for you in the first place. These bad boys have roughly the same number of calories as regular chips.

15. Baked chips.


These are actually way more processed than regular chips. These are good if you want more high-fructose corn syrup in your diet (which normal potato chips don't generally have).

17. Multigrain bread.


Whole wheat has more essential nutrients and more dietary fiber, so unless your multigrain bread is made with whole grains, you're better off with white bread.
