11 Surprising Calorific Foods That Could Harm Your Diet
You've said goodbye to the sugar, processed foods and saturated fat, but there are a few 'healthy' foods not to over-guzzle
-------------------------

You're healthy eating's going well, you've been sticking to great food choices and keeping an eye on the sugar.

However, despite your best intentions, those healthy snacks and sides you've been picking up snacks could actually harm your diet. Watch out for the sneaky calories in these 11 foods:


11 Surprising Calorific Foods That Could Harm Your Diet

 


Sushi

Avoiding the carbs at lunchtime is tricky, especially when all you want is a big bowl of pasta to get you through the afternoon. As a result, it's tempting to turn to sushi as a light, low-calorie alternative. However, being packed with rice, it’s shamelessly calorific. In your average eight-piece sushi roll, expect to find around 300 calories, and that’s before you’ve topped it with delicious sauces and flavourings.

To make matters worse, many sushi types provide very little protein, resulting in early tummy grumbles and increased snacking. If you still want your sushi, opt for sashimi (slices of fish with no rice). 
Avocados

Avocados are an amazing superfood so we're definitely not saying you should avoid them. Their nutrition and antioxidant value are through the roof, and they make the perfect salad ingredient.

But whilst these fruits are filled with heart-healthy fats, they’re a little heavy on the calories too. The average avocado contains 300+ calories; a hefty number for a mid-morning snack. Don't let that put you off, just be aware when you're thinking about your daily diet and how many calories you're consuming. Eating it scooped out of the skin should reduce your cravings for fatty foods and the nutrients will give your overall health a boost.Ditch the OJ for an orange (REX)

Orange Juice 

In many cases orange juice can be just as, if not more calorific than fizzy pop. Like most popular carbonated drinks, orange juice tends to be sky-high in sugar, with approximately 21 grams in one small cup, so don’t drink it by the bucket load.

And while juice beats fizzy drinks in terms of nutrition, it's much better to stick to calorie-free water and get your vitamin C fix with a piece of fruit.
Raisins 

Finding the right snack for the workplace is hard when you’re abstaining from chocolate and sweets. And whilst raisins seem perfectly innocent on the face of it, they’re actually quite high in calories – a whole 220 per half a cup in fact! That’s seven times  the amount of calories you’d consume in the same amount of grapes. When grapes are dried into raisins, they lose their water content but retain the same levels of sugar, which makes it more concentrated. So stick to small portions or go for grapes. 
Cereal

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you certainly shouldn’t skip it, but picking a healthy breakfast is key to keeping you feeling full and energised all morning.

Cereals are an easy option but they're problematic. Often full of secret sugars that calories up a notch, make sure you avoid cereals packed with honey, chocolate and dried fruit. Instead, choose a lighter option, like shredded wheat with skimmed milk. 
Granola

If a new, low-calorie breakfast is at the top of your shopping list, be wary of granola. This oats-based dish is surprisingly high in calories, at 450 per cup. True, oats are a great source of fibre, fat and minerals, but they can significantly harm your diet when eaten in excess. Try making your own and try substituting the nuts and chocolate pieces for low-calorie alternatives like blueberries.

Salad Dressing

If you’ve ever eaten a ‘super-healthy’ salad in a restaurant and wondered why it tasted so good, it’s probably thanks to the dressing. You’ve ditched the steak and chips in favour of leafy greens, but haven’t lost an ounce of weight to show for it. If your vegetables are layered in creamy sauce, croutons and cheese, then expect a large side of calories to go with it. Shop-bought dressings can be high in sugar, trans fats and refined oils, all of which negate the lovely nutritional value of your veg. 
Energy Bars

Energy bars sound like the perfect pre-workout snack, when in actual fact; you’re just totting up even more calories to burn at the gym. Brands load the bars with added sugars in order to provide you with the energy boost you need. As you’d expect, this offers very little nutritional value. For a low calorie alternative, stick to whole fruit. Despite being 120 calories a pop, bananas are one of the best energy foods to eat before exercise – snack 30 mins before any activity for maximum results.When it comes to smoothies, go green! (REX)

Smoothies

Don’t be fooled. Whilst getting your five a day in one neat, little drink sounds like a dream concoction, they aren’t always as healthy as they first seem. Rich in natural sugars, their calorie content can reach the dizzy heights of up to 500. But you cam bring this down and still get one of your five a day in liquid form. Just rustle up a low calorie version by switching super-sweet citrus fruits for greens, such as kale, cucumber and celery. 
Olive Oil 

Don’t get us wrong, olive oil is super-healthy. A recent study in the British Medical Journal emphasised the immense health benefits of adopting a Mediterranean diet – it’s said to reduce the risk of age-related diseases and leaves you looking younger. That being said, used in abundance, it can easily rack up the calories; 1 tbsp. is 120 calories. Like most oils, it’s pure fat, so try to be sensible when cooking.
Nuts

Nuts are the go-to snack when opting for a calorie-controlled diet. Their heart-healthy fats make them an excellent substitute for chocolate and sweets; but be aware of portion sizes. One ounce of macadamia nuts for instance, equates to over 200 calories.

Again, don’t rule them out! Eaten in moderation, they can actually assist with weight loss, leaving you fuller for longer.

Repeat after us: Little and often.
