13 HEALTHY FOODS That Can Make You Fat

Some so­-called smart eats are just junk food in disguise. Cut back on them and your thighs will thank you.

Chips, gooey desserts, anything that starts with fried — you know to fight off these calorie cows with a stick. What's tricky is that some foods with famously healthy reputations are actually worse for your weight than the snacks in vending machines and drive-throughs. We fill you in on what they are and why they keep you from hitting that golden number on the scale.

1.Sushi Rolls
sharkysgulfgrill.com
The veggies and seaweed wrap are low-cal, but a lot of the most popular rolls are slathered with cream cheese or mayo (e.g., in that spicy sauce that comes on many options), and the seafood inside may be tempura-battered. Thanks to those ingredients, a standard roll can clock in at 500 to 600 calories. Also, soy sauce is loaded with sodium. It won't make you gain weight, but it'll cause you to retain water, so your jeans will feel (and look) tighter.



2.Dried Fruit
Cup for cup, dried fruit has five to eight times more calories than the fresh kind because it has been dehydrated and is much denser. Fresh grapes, for example, have 60 calories per cup, while raisins have 460. And many brands add sugar, amping up the calorie count even more.

3.Granola
Since it's loaded with good-for-you nuts and oats, it's too bad that they add oil to make it crisp and tons of sugar for more yumminess. One bowl racks up around 500 calories. Other cereals with the same nutrients but less oil and sugar pack half that.

4.Bran Muffins
Whether it's plain bran or mixed with apples or bananas, the fiber fills you up, sure, but considering all the sugar and butter it delivers, a bran muffin is basically just a round slice of cake. One weighs in at about 20 grams of fat, 420 calories, and 34 grams of sugar.

5.Half-and-Half
sodahead.com
You put so little into your coffee, it seems like a harmless way to get calcium - especially when compared to full-fat cream. But a few spoonfuls per cup of joe two or three times a day quickly turns into 200 or more calories plus the same amount of fat as a big pat of butter!

6.Wraps
No matter what you put in it, the average wrap is a major offender. If you roll it out, it can be 1 foot across — seriously — and pack up to 300 calories. Since the surface area is way bigger than two slices of bread, you coat it with a lot more mayo or dressing than you would a sub or sandwich.

7.Bottled Teas
Most store-bought brands are souped up with sugar or honey, which are crazy-caloric sweeteners. Oh, and one bottle can contain two or more servings, bringing the calorie count to almost 200 — similar to a bottle of soda.

8.Rice Cakes
These light snacks are fat-free and low in calories, but they're also completely lacking in fiber or protein — ingredients that experts say actually curb hunger. That means downing two or three won't do anything but add more calories to your daily total and leave you craving something with substance. And limit the flavored kinds — they don't satisfy you more and they tend to have lots of sugar or sodium.

9.Veggie Burgers
Sure, skipping beef in lieu of a meat-free patty may save you a little fat and cholesterol. But depending on the brand and what you put on it, you could easily end up housing more than 1,000 calories. The cheese that often binds the veggies together and the huge size of the burgers are anything but diet-friendly. Add a bun and some ketchup and you might as well have had the quarter-pounder.

10.Juice
Reaching your recommended daily fruit-serving goal by getting it in liquid form might be the reason you can't fit into last year's LBD. A 16-ounce bottle of OJ or apple juice has 55 grams of carbohydrates, the equivalent of five slices of bread. And most of that is sugar — a whopping 12 spoonfuls of it.

11.Diet Microwave Meals
The lean ready-to-eat dishes tend to be high in sodium — since the manufacturers can't rely on calorie-rich fat to make the stuff taste good, they resort to salt. As a result, scarfing them will make you retain water, especially in your arms and legs, leaving you puffy.

12.Salads
There's nothing better for you or your waist than naked veggies, but the shredded cheese, candied nuts, croutons, and globs of dressing often make salads as caloric as an oversize dish of pasta. And nutritionists are quick to point out that innocent-sounding vinaigrettes, though not as fattening as ranches, can be almost as high-cal.

13.Tofu
thedailygreen.com
Order this health food at a restaurant and what you'll most likely get is a plateful of sodium, calories, saturated fat, and even sugar. Tofu itself isn't the issue — the problem is that the white stuff is so bland, it's often served doused in decadent sauces then deep-fried to give it flavor and texture, making it a diet disaster.

THE 10 BEST weight-loss tips ever

123rf.co
The 10 best weight-loss tips ever for dieting sucks and never seems to work long-term anyway. These easy habits will slim you down.

Losing pounds doesn't have to be torture (we're looking at you, cayenne-pepper cleanse). Adopt at least three of these behaviors-  they're simple to integrate into your day-to-day routine, and all are enthusiastically backed by nutritionists — and you'll be thinner and healthier in days. (Plus, the weight will stay off.)

1. SNACK, BUT SMARTLY
Grazing between meals used to be on the weight-loss hit list. But nutritionists now know that it's better to satisfy a craving with healthy grub than ignore it and risk a junk-food binge later. The best picks are filling, protein-packed snacks, such as one stick of string cheese, a tablespoon of peanut butter on a piece of fruit, or a medium-size bowl of edamame.

2. TURN OFF THE TV
Dining while viewing can make you take in 40 percent more calories than usual, reports a new study. And texting, driving, or any other distracting activity during a meal can also result in your eating too much. Instead, make each meal something you put on a plate and sit down to, even if you're eating solo.

3. STEP ON THE SCALE DAILY
If your regular weight increases several days in a row, it's a red flag letting you know you need to cut back a little or beef up your workouts slightly.

4. SCULPT THREE TIMES A WEEK
Doing 5 minutes each of push-ups, lunges, and squats (in 30-second intervals) will help build and maintain muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be, so you'll torch more calories as you go about your day.

5. REACH FOR YOUR CELL
Next time your mind gets stuck on a certain food, call a friend and redirect your brain by asking how her day's going. Research shows that cravings only last about 5 minutes, so by the time you hang up, the urge to devour junk will have subsided.

6. EAT A BIG, BALANCED BREAKFAST
An a.m. meal made up mostly of carbs and protein with some fat keeps blood-sugar levels steady and hunger pangs away so you're not susceptible to pigging out come lunch, studies show. Opt for something satisfying for your stomach and taste buds — like egg whites and turkey bacon with whole-wheat toast.

7. WATCH THE BOOZE
One innocent-looking margarita or cosmopolitan can rack up hundreds of calories that do nothing to quench your appetite. Treat yourself just on the weekends and cut back somewhere else or stick to a glass of wine, light beer, or vodka and soda — three drinks that each have about 100 calories per serving.

8. HAVE FRUIT TWICE A DAY
Fruit has no fat and is mostly water, so it'll fill you up while leaving less room on your plate (and in your stomach) for high-cal fare. Don't freak about fruit's carb count — we're talking the good kind of carbohydrates that contain lots of healthy fiber.

9. STAY ASLEEP LONGER
Getting to bed just 30 minutes earlier and waking up 30 minutes later than you normally do can help you make better food choices, researchers report. Also, when you're well-rested, you're less prone to snacking out of fatigue or stress.

10. VISUALIZE YOURSELF THIN
When you feel your willpower breaking, conjure up a mental picture of yourself when you looked and felt slim. The visual motivation keeps you focused on your goal weight and reminds you that it is attainable, since you've achieved it before.

6 HEALTHY FOODS but fattening agency

These are 6 foods that seem healthy but can fatten the body, as revealed by Eating Well :
Salad
Many people liked the salad. Naturally good for your health if you consume vegetables contained in the salad.

Therefore, before ordering a salad topping should make sure that given in accordance with your diet.

Protein / Energy bars
Protein bars usually contain protein and fiber-nutrients that help you feel full, but also contain many calories. No matter if you drink occasionally, but most of us treat it as a snack. If you want to eat it, select a protein bar that contains about 5 grams of protein.

Granola

Smoothie
Smoothie tasty way to help you consume the recommended servings of fruit. Yet studies show that these drinks contain more calories than solid food. Some brands contain calories as much bottled smoothies milkshakes.

Low-fat fruit-flavored yogurt, but the "fruit" referred to is the jam (in which most contain sugar). You can choose low-fat yogurt that tastes fresh and toss together with fresh fruit or other sweetener of your liking (with that you'll use less, according to dosing diet).

6 HABITS that unhealthy eating patterns


1.Contains a lot of fat:
policosanolprime.com
Normal diet should contain no more than 25% - 35% of calories derived from fat. Many fatty foods can activate an immune response and cause inflammation throughout the body, including inflammation of the respiratory system, and affect the function of our lungs.

Reduce consumption of fast food is high in fat. For example hamburger contains about 1000 calories and 60 grams of fat. This means that approximately 50% of food comes from fat. For fast-food consumption should be limited to a maximum of two times per month.

2.High cholesterol:
There are two types of cholesterol in the blood vessels : Good Cholesterol (HDL - High Density Lipoprotein) and Bad cholesterol (LDL - Low Density Lipoprotein).

HDL function to remove free cholesterol contained in the blood vessels to prevent build up of cholesterol in the body and LDL functions to transport cholesterol to the entire network of blood vessels, are easily attached to the walls of blood vessels.
Excess LDL cholesterol can cause tissue is thin and attached to the wall plaques in arteries throughout the body. Plaques plates is called atherosclerosis.

Plaques plates that attach to the blood vessels will harden and narrow the flow of arterial blood vessels, reduce or even stop blood flow. Constriction of blood vessels that causes heart attacks, hypertension, and other serious health problems.

Cholesterol comes from two sources. First, the formation of cholesterol in the body, mainly occurs in the liver (50% of total synthesis) and the remainder in the colon, skin, and all networks that have a cell nucleus.
Second, cholesterol is obtained through foods such as meat and dairy products.

Perform blood tests to determine levels of cholesterol in the blood regularly once every single year, especially for those who aged over 25 years.

Reduce snacks or fried foodsReduce consumption of foods containing high cholesterol such as beef, egg yolk, cheese, quail eggs, etc.

Expand the consumption of foods that can lower LDL or increase HDL such as soybeans, avocado, salmon, tea, garlic, chocolate, cashews, almonds, and walnuts.

3.Contains a lot of sugar :
Sugar didn't contain other nutrients such as protein, vitamins, minerals or fiber. But a lot of sugar contained in carbohydrates, our bodies need for growth of body cells and as a source of energy-producing calories. To become a calorie, sugar in the body will experience the process of solving. The process requires vitamin B1. So, if we eat a lot of sugar, or carbs, it would be more and more vitamin B1 is needed.

If not matched by adequate intake of the foods we eat, the body will lack of vitamin B1. Consequences will arise on the functioning of the nervous system disorder that would cause the symptoms of fatigue, poor concentration, etc. Source of Vitamin B1 include nuts and seeds.

So, please consume food or drink sweet but not excessive.

4.Much salt:

Salt binding fluids in the body.
Excessive consumption of salt will make the ability of the kidneys in filtering the liquid is reduced because the liquid has been bound by the salt. If fluid can not be filtered kidney, then it could be pooled in the heart and cause serious heart problems.

Mineral salts containing sodium chloride (NaCl)
Red corpuscle should obtain an appropriate supply of sodium. If less then the grain will shrink the blood. If excessive red blood then the grain will grow resulting in high blood pressure (hypertension) and the potential occurrence of stroke. Another effect is the blood vessel can tear.  Excess sodium will also make the kidneys work "extra hard".

Consuming the ideal amount of salt per day per person is 2,000 milligrams, or about a third of a teaspoon. But this is the overall salt consumption of food or drink into the body. Not just table salt in cooking.
Need to see the content of salt in any food or beverages that we consume every day.

5.Lack of drinking water:

Ideally, our bodies need 6-10 glasses of water each day.
Benefits of water for our bodies:
• Streamlining the digestive system:
  - Consume adequate amounts of water every day will expedite the digestive system so that 

    we will be  unavoidable from digestive problems like constipation and ulcers or calorie   
    burning will also be run  efficiently.
  - Slowing the growth of cancer-causing substances, prevent kidney stones and heart disease 

    and make the body more energy.
• Maintain skin health:
  - When we lack drinking water, the body will absorb the water content in the skin so the  

     skin becomes dry and wrinkled. Besides white water can protect the skin from the outside, 
     as well as moisturize and nourish the skin.
  - Increasing the production of testosterone in men and estrogen in women.

6.Contains carcinogens:

Carcinogen is a cancer-causing substances found in food. Perform the following precautions when choosing foods:
  • Avoid food that looks or smells moldy, because it may contain aflatoxin which causes liver cancer.
  • Don't cook using high-temperature hot oil. To cook by grilling or sauteing (less than 240 ⁰ C) can prevent the oil or fat is changed into carcinogens. Wherever possible, change the way frying with boiling or steaming.
  • Be careful with meat that has been processed, dried and preserved. Nitrate and nitrite compounds are used for meat processing will be converted into nitrosamine substance during the process. Nitrosamines found in bacon, sausage and beef jerky. They potentially contain carcinogens. Nitrosamines are also formed in the drying process when the beer is produced. Nitrosamine most commonly found in dark beer.
  • Don't be too long to roast the meat at a barbecue. Combustion will form the substance of meat heterocyclic amines (HCAs) that potentially lead to colon cancer, tumors of lung and breast.
  • Substance additives and pesticides that are still found in vegetables and fruits suspected non-organic may be carcinogenic.
  • Wash or slash all fruits and vegetables before consumption or cooking. This is not going to eliminate all pesticide residues, but will reduce it.

    LET the food DO our diet

    Want to lose weight despite eating a lot? It's possible!
    It's simple. Obesity is caused when we consume food beyond the needs of our daily calories. When our caloric needs 2,000 calories / day, but we eat 3,000 calories, then the excess calories 1,000 (derived from carbohydrates, protein, and fat) will be stored in the body in the form of fat reserves. If our fat reserves reams continue in the body, be overweight!

    Dietary rules state that if you want to lose weight faster, then you have to reduce meal portions and eat foods low in calories. But as an alternative to other diet, we can lose weight while still eating as usual, and let the food do the job for our diet with fat-burning foods.

    blueblots.com
     Food is a fat-burning weight loss naturally and work by speeding up metabolism so that it can burn many calories. Fat-burning foods can also suppress your appetite so that he becomes a person to eat less.

    Lately so many product advertisements that promised to lose weight in an instant of time (such as decreased 8-12 kg / week). You should be cautious with products like this (usually in the form of drinks or "herbal"), because this slimming product rather than burn fat as promised in its ads, but spend lots of body fluids. Symptoms, you are so very frequent urination and always feel thirsty. Your weight is going down fast, but it's because the body is drained of fluid rather than fat. As a result, you will become dehydrated, and up to severe levels can cause death!. Thus, fat-burning diet with food is a safer alternative and more healthy for you.

    healthy
    Elaine Woosey, health experts, declared on her website about fat burning foods, that not a few people complain "it's hard diet" but fail because they do not know the right food, or because of arbitrary diet (fad diets). Based on her experience, she argues that the foods on this list can lose weight up to two pounds per day when consumed in sufficient quantities.

    Woosey also recommend to people who are dieting raise the weight-control to be more servings of fat-burning foods here, because most food diet is what will make them fail when eaten too much.

    This is a list of fat burning foods:
    -Raw food and salad : fruits, vegetables, salads, legumes. Because vegetables and fruits contain enzymes that can break down fats in the intestine which can prevent fat absorbed by the body.
    -Lean meat : like fish and chicken breast (without skin).
    -High calcium foods : because calcium can break down the fat cells of the body, such as milk, yogurt, cheese and milk products other derivatives. Milk can also suppress your appetite so as to prevent eating a lot. But if you suffer from high cholesterol, should first consult this with your doctor. It is recommended you drink skim or low-fat milk when intending to use for a diet.
    -Vitamin C : can melt the fat so it can be expelled from the body, such as apples, oranges, cabbage, and broccoli.
    -Pectin : can limit the absorption of fat by the body's cells and "forced" to strip the body fat reserves. Sources of pectin are fruits, especially apples and albedo.
    -Garlic and garlic oil : because it can reduce body fat reserves.
    -Green tea : because it can speed up metabolism and helps accelerate fat burning.
    -Red Chillies : pain spiciness can accelerate metabolism and help burn more calories.
    -Olive oil : is burning fat and can lower cholesterol
    -Appetizers : with the soup of natural ingredients (especially vegetables) can decrease appetite. Eat soup as an opener before the main menu.
    -Soybeans and derivatives products (tofu, tempe, soy milk) : because soybeans contains lecithin which prevents cells accumulate too much fat and helps break down fat from the body.
    -Drinking lots of water as a complement : Water serves as a "washing" system of the body and dispose of dangerous toxins. Drink plenty of water so that food fat burners can work optimally.
    Other tips: drink lots of water before eating, then this could reduce the direct portion of your main meal. Moreover, the water contains no calories, so do not be fattening. And one more thing - if you still think that drinking cold water can make the fat? From now on, get rid of the myth was far from your mind. Our bodies can't directly use the water temperature is too cold or too hot. If the temperature of the water we drink is too cold, your body will convert cold water so that the temperature in accordance with body temperature. This process takes a number of calories. So, drinking cold water burn even more calories than plain water!
    -CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) : conjugated linoleic acid or commonly referred to as a form of CLA is an essential fatty acid linoleic. Studies show that CLA can burn fat and increase muscle mass formation in the body -which is very good for people on a diet. In addition, CLA was also observed to increase milk production and increase insulin sensitivity for people with diabetes. CLA is a source of marine fish.

    Besides reducing weight, Woosey also states some additional benefit from consuming fat-burning foods, such as: loss fat belly, reduce hunger, making sleep better, eliminate cellulite, to increase life expectancy and prevent the risk of heart attacks, cholesterol, and high blood pressure.

Numerous studies have found that these substances can prevent various types of cancer such as porstat, stomach and lungs. As an antioxidant, lycopene protects cell structures and DNA from free-radical effects of small particles that damage cells and made tumor cells grow. Even from a study in Nutrition and Cancer detected that lycopene is better than two other antioxidants, alpha and beta-caroten in inhibiting cancer cells in the urinary tract, chest and lungs.
