8 Healthy Foods That Could Wreck Your Diet

Posted July 10th, 2014 @ 5:01am by Chilli Amar



Cutting out junk food is the first step in eating healthier. However, you need to be careful when you swap out for "healthier" food...especially when it comes to portion control.

According to Fox News, here are 8 HEALTHY FOODS THAT COULD WRECK YOUR DIET:


1. Avocado: This superfood is packed with good-for-you nutrients and antioxidants, as well as belly-filling fiber and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. But avocados are high in fat and calorically dense. One serving size is about 1/5 of an avocado, and clocks in at 50 calories, and a single avocado can deliver more than 350 calories.

2. Red wine: People who consume moderate amounts of red wine may be at reduced risk for heart disease, Alzheimer's, certain types of cancers, and even weight gain. The key word: moderation. A 5-ounce serving is about 130 calories.

3. Chocolate: Dark chocolate contains disease-fighting polyphenols and has even been associated with weight loss—if you don't eat too much of it, that is. An ounce of dark chocolate packs in 155 calories and 9 grams of fat, 5 of it saturated.
