5 Food Scams To Know – Men’s Health

  1. Snack packs – just because food looks like a diet food, it’s not.  It’s a small snack pack because it is bad for you!
  2. Zero Trans Fats – they are allowed to have no more than 0.5g of trans fats and still call it free.  Trans fats are bad.  Take in no more than 2.5g a day.  Check to see that the label doesn’t have the words “partially hydrogenated” or “shortening” or “interesterified”.
  3. “Whole” in front of grains.  Check the ingredients list for “whole grains” as a primary ingrediant, rather than far down the list, behind sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup, or enriched wheat flour. 
  4. Fast food salads.  They’re toppings can be as bad as a side of fries.  Make your own!
