Do You Know These Foods Can Sabotage Your Diet ?
When you’re trying to lose a few pounds or just clean up your diet, it can feel like there are temptations everywhere you look. Doughnuts at the office, cake at the birthday party, and that adorable Girl Scout peddling cookies on your doorstep all threaten to throw you off track. However, these temptations are not the only dangerous ones.
There are much sneakier culprits lurking right in your kitchen. The problem is that you think some of these foods are healthy. Foods that parade themselves as health foods only to send your blood sugar skyrocketing are the real issue. Here are just a few of the foods that will sabotage your diet.
