10 'Diet' Foods That Pack on the Pounds

Protein shakes

Smoothies and protein shakes are delicious and refreshing, therefore we enjoy them. Many smoothies and protein shakes contain vitamins and minerals, while others are full of sugar and bad calories that make you fat.

Low-Fat Yogurt

It may be fatty if it smells delicious. Because fat is bad, flavored yogurt makers can add sugar to preserve flavor after removing fat. Weight reduction doesn't require all that sugar.

Diet Soda

Diet beverages are zero-calorie, but the artificial sweetener can disrupt bodily systems. Diet Coke might make you overeat by making you feel hungry.

Fresh-pressed juices

Fresh, unprocessed, sugar-free juice seems healthful, but it's not always that simple. Fruits' sugars and calories might make you obese. Avoid sweet fruits and starchy vegetable juices when pressing to cut calories.


Pizza is a staple in American diets, but it may add calories. Pizzas with heavily processed meat may cause obesity.

Sample Mix

Trail mix is delicious and invigorating, but quantity restriction is essential for health. Fruits, cereal, and sweets may have too much sugar, calories, and fat. 

Low-Calorie Cereal

Low-calorie cereals without protein or fat start our day. However, low-calorie cereals sometimes include too much sugar, which might hinder weight reduction.

Granola Bars

We buy branded granola bars because buying nuts, seeds, oats, and coconut may be overwhelming. However, ready-made granola bars are loaded with sugar to increase taste, thus they can cause huge weight gain if overconsumed.

Dried fruits

Dried fruits are healthful and good for weight reduction, but they are sweeter and smaller than fresh fruits, so you may eat more than you should and consume more calories than you would if you ate them fresh. Always pick fresh over dry.

Low-Calorie Condiments

Ketchup, barbeque sauce, wine vinegar, and mayonnaise make salads taste better and more pleasurable.
