We believe that honey should not be heated, otherwise it begins to release toxins, and we believe that lemon and ginger can immediately boost immunity during the cold season. And yet — we believe in favor of many useless products. What kind?
Even all the supposedly healthy vegetables and fruits that have healthy carbohydrates lose their benefits when cooked, no matter how they are cooked. What can be said about oatmeal or yeast-free bread?
But first, take a look at our project: “Big talk about ‘it’. All about sex in the digital age and about:
Who are digital people and what turns them on?
What is telediltonics?
Why are people in polygamous relationships?
Can you find a great sex partner on Tinder?
In fact, sweet oatmeal with nuts, dried fruits, baked with honey or sugar is quite tasty. But it is completely useless, especially if you are trying to lose weight with granola. All these prefixes “fitness”, “benefit” and “health”, “weight loss” and “slim” are just a trick to get more people to buy the product. Nobody forbids eating granola, it is terribly tasty, but you should not be mistaken about it.
Tip: make granola at home with honey and proven dried fruits and nuts. It is much tastier than store-bought, and much cheaper.
White and milk chocolate
Doctors believe that dark chocolate is the most useful, and the darker the better. But white and milky are just two more ways to exquisitely goosebumps. The fact is that they do not contain much cocoa, which gives chocolate its benefits.
Useful only if you have prepared them at home, as is the case with granola. Such bars usually contain not honey for “gluing” elements, but sugar and not the highest quality nuts and dried fruits.
Such bars do not have benefits for the figure, but they are tasty, so you can indulge in them if you want.
Spreads and all sorts of “light” oils contain fewer calories, but they have enough trans fats for which your body and in particular the heart will not say thank you. If you like high cholesterol — bon appetit, but you can’t lose weight with the help of “light” butter.
Cottage cheese inside does not solve anything, girlfriend. If you think that store-bought iced cheese is a good dessert, you better change your mind: glazed curds contain a lot of sugar and fat, and there is zero benefit.
No matter how natural yogurt is, if it contains at least some flavoring additives, and the shelf life is more than five days, it is useless. Best of all — yogurts that live up to five days without sugar or additives.
Instant oatmeal is just a useless cereal that contains fast carbohydrates. It’s simple: because such porridge is steamed, and additional sugar is added to it.
Based on the calorie content, this sugar is exactly as unhealthy as white sugar. In addition, quite often brown sugar from the store is colored white sugar. It is better to exclude it from the diet altogether.
Yeast is considered harmful, and all adherents of a healthy diet have declared an anathema to yeast bread. But in fact, during baking, high temperatures kill yeast, so there is no difference: bread with or without yeast.
Store-bought juices should never be bought if you want to lose weight and become healthier. It is better to eat fresh fruits or make homemade smoothies from them.
