There are many things people do when going on diets. One of the things that they can do is choose alternatives to foods that they would normally eat. Although there are a lot of healthy alternatives that you can make, some of them may actually make you gain weight instead of losing.
In today’s article is a list of seven food swaps that are actually making you gain weight instead of losing it. The first food that you shouldn’t swap out is granola for cereal. Many people think that all granola is healthy for you and it doesn’t matter how much you eat, but on the contrary, granola can be loaded with sugar, salt, and fat. The second alternative that can make you gain more weight is switching out chips for pretzels.
They both contain the same amount of calories and are both high in sodium. A better alternative would be a bag of regular popcorn with a few spices added in which is low in sodium and calories.
