Are these 8 fattening foods in your fridge? See the snacks that are sabotaging your diet now
CerealOK, we already know there's sugar in cereals like Froot Loops and chocolate-flavored Cocoa Puffs, but what about the healthier options like Kellogg's Smart Start Strong Heart Toasted Oat? Well turns out even a 1 1/4 cup of Kellogg's has 17 g of sugar, and my personal favorite -- Special K Fruit & Yogurt -- has about the same amount of sugar, which puts both on par with a Twinkie. "When cereals are made from whole grains, we assume they're made with other wholesome ingredients, too, but that's not always the case," says Ansel.
Eat this instead: To avoid the sugar in cereal, "your best bet is to go for the most unprocessed cereal possible," such as a bowl of whole oats or bran flakes. "If you want a little sweetness add some fresh fruit," says Ansel.
