As delicious as that pint of Ben & Jerry’s in your freezer is, it’s loaded with sugar and calories. Indulge in your craving too often and you’re looking at increased blood sugar levels, weight gain over time, inflammation throughout the body, and a rise in LDL (bad) cholesterol, says Lynch.

Flavored instant oatmeal

While convenient, those individual packets of oatmeal are filled with 15 to 20 grams of unnecessary sugar, says Gilbert. These artificial sweeteners trigger cravings, because once blood sugar levels plummet after an hour, you’ll be hungry again. Gilbert says you’re better off with rolled oats (which cook very quickly, too) with real fruit, or overnight oats.
