Rice crackers

10 Foods Praised by Millions as Healthy That Actually Do More Harm Than Good

Fluffy, airy rice crackers are the number one choice for the millions who are trying to lose a bit of weight. These not-so-innocent crackers lack fiber and protein and are considered a carb-dense snack (a high ratio of carbs compared to their weight). Basically, you add calories without feeling full.

Sports drinks

10 Foods Praised by Millions as Healthy That Actually Do More Harm Than Good

A sports drink is nothing more than flavored water with sugar and electrolytes (salt), which is useful for training athletes. Ordinary people don’t really need extra salt, and only a few need liquid sugar. If you are not planning an epic long training session, then go for good old water.

Nuts

10 Foods Praised by Millions as Healthy That Actually Do More Harm Than Good

Don’t go nuts over nuts might sound funny, but it’s true. Nuts are healthy when eaten in moderation, and approximately 6 nuts will give you all the benefits and should make you stop feeling hungry. More nuts = more calories. Forget about all flavored nuts (salty, sugary, roasted). They have to be raw. Not raw? No benefits.
