Diet Tricksters That Are Making You Fat

variety of sushi on a platter(BlackDoctor.org) — You’re trying hard to watch what you eat…but could some of those “good-for-you” foods actually be diet disasters in disguise?

Here are just a few of the foods they may be tricking you into a larger waistline:

1. Granola

Granola seems so innocent, right? Actually, just one cup contains up to 500 calories and over 20 grams of fat — and that’s before the milk!

Eat smarter: Mix a quarter cup of your favorite granola into a cup of low-cal, whole-grain cereal, such as All-Bran Complete Wheat Flakes, or sprinkle a tablespoon on oatmeal.
