9 Most Unhealthy "Health" Foods
Think all food is fair game at stores like Whole Foods? Not so much. We'll show you what to watch out for the next time you shop in a health food store
Juices and smoothiesYou already know that juice "cocktails" are loaded with added sugar, and that juice and smoothies in general pack a big calorie punch. But those 100 percent organic drinks are still a tempting alternative to a bowl of fruit, especially when you're on the go.
Giancoli highly recommends limiting yourself to a 6- to 8-ounce serving at a time (so keep an eye on your portions, especially with smoothies). The reason: Juice has concentrated fruit sugar, which means more calories but less satiety than if you were to just eat a piece of fruit. Plus, all that sugar (even though it's naturally from the fruit) will make you crave more sweet stuff later in the day, says Metsovas.
