Some­one is so pas­sion­ate about diets that they can deter­mine the exact num­ber of calo­ries in any dish by eye. But not every­one has pumped their dietary skills so pow­er­ful­ly. Most, to be hon­est, heard the ring­ing, but do not know where it is. It hap­pens that you try your best to make your menu exclu­sive­ly from low-calo­rie foods, but for some rea­son the effect is not observed in any way — it does not lose any weight.

Why is this hap­pen­ing? There may be sev­er­al rea­sons, but the most com­mon is very sim­ple — in fact, some so-called “low-calo­rie” foods are not at all as low-calo­rie as we would like. So, let’s begin.

How many prais­es of the use­ful­ness of avo­ca­dos have been sung, it can­not be count­ed. It has sat­u­rat­ed fats, and vit­a­mins, and all sorts of super-healthy trace ele­ments. And it also has kilo­calo­ries: there are more than 200 of them in 100 g. This means that you can and should eat avo­ca­dos, but do not get car­ried away!

Fish, namely salmon

In the vast major­i­ty of diets, we read that you can eat it in the morn­ing, after­noon, evening, almost as much as you like, because it is excep­tion­al­ly suit­able for dietary nutri­tion.

Mean­while, salmon fil­let can be more nutri­tious than meat: depend­ing on the cook­ing method, the ener­gy val­ue of 100 g of salmon can vary from 160 to 250 kcal! White vari­eties of fish — here they are real­ly dietary.

Even if it is fat-free, which the man­u­fac­tur­er usu­al­ly informs about in large print, care­ful­ly look at the small let­ters where the com­po­si­tion and calo­rie con­tent are indi­cat­ed.

At 0% fat, yogurt can have 15 g of car­bo­hy­drates per 100 g — and this, by the way, is as much as 4 table­spoons of sug­ar. They don’t go well with weight loss, do they?

Over the past twen­ty years, only the lazi­est scam­mer has not cre­at­ed his own fat-burn­ing drug based on this sup­pos­ed­ly “fat-burn­ing” fruit. But pineap­ple does not burn fat at all, it con­tributes to its rapid break­down, helps to remove fats from the body and pre­vents the depo­si­tion of new ones. But! But the speed with which pineap­ple car­bo­hy­drates are absorbed by the body and increase blood sug­ar lev­els is sim­ply pro­hib­i­tive. And the use of foods with a high glycemic index, first­ly, pro­vokes a con­stant feel­ing of hunger, and sec­ond­ly, it helps to con­vert sug­ar into fat!

Dried fruits

This, of course, is a great quick snack and a real sal­va­tion for those with a sweet tooth who, for the sake of their fig­ure, decid­ed to give up cakes, but it’s impos­si­ble to live with­out sweets. That is, you do not have to give up dried fruits when you are on a diet. You just need to remem­ber that they are just a small snack, not food. Dried fruits are much more nutri­tious than fresh prod­ucts, for exam­ple, 100 g of grapes is only 70 kcal, and there are 300 of them in raisins!

Black chocolate

It is less high-calo­rie than milk, and there are also sig­nif­i­cant­ly few­er car­bo­hy­drates in it, if not at all. But if you don’t get car­ried away with com­par­a­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics, but just care­ful­ly study the label, you will find that 100 g of dark choco­late con­tains 740 kcal!

That is why choco­late is includ­ed in the list of emer­gency food prod­ucts — it is very high in calo­ries, takes up lit­tle space and is stored for a long time. In gen­er­al, the myth that dark choco­late does not make you fat is just a myth. It is good and use­ful, but in rea­son­able quan­ti­ties.

Actu­al­ly, the rule “eat what­ev­er your heart desires, but in rea­son­able quan­ti­ties” is the health­i­est and most effec­tive of all diets in the world!
