21 WORTHLESS FOODS A NUTRITIONIST WILL IMMEDIATELY CUT FROM YOUR DIET

Granola

granola can have a lot of calories and sugar

Granola is easily mistaken for a health food, but if you’ve ever used it to top your yogurt, you know how difficult it can be to stick to an appropriate portion of this crunchy snack (most experts recommend no more than 2/3 a cup per serving). Therein lies the problem, says Zied: “Granola is high in fat and calories and often provides a good dose of added sugar.” For a healthier alternative that doesn’t wreck your waistline, she suggests cutting back on the amount of granola, going low-fat, and mixing it with one to two tablespoons of chopped nuts to add protein.
