Here's a comprehensive list of some pretty sad realities about the food we all love to munch on. As brought to you by a completely healthy-living challenged fast-food junkie.
This is so upsetting. I was always under the assumption that a good ol' fashioned turkey sandwich was always a safe bet. But, um, apparently it's not. One sandwich, with the works (lettuce, cheese, tomato, mayo and turkey) can be up to 400 calories.
"Reduced Fat" Peanut Butter
First of all, can I just point out that standard peanut butter is made with the same type of sugars that cake frosting is made with. OKAY, so what about reduced fat? Yeah, that's no good either. See, what happens is when they take the fat out they just replace it with sugar and other fillings. So either way, it's still 93 calories in a single tablespoon. It's like the peanut butter industry is playing a huge joke where reduced fat literally just means "WE HATE YOU" with love from your favorite lunch sandwich.
But it's so light! How can anything this light be bad for you? Well, sorry to ruin microwave popcorn for anyone using it as a healthy alternative, but you might want to reconsider. These bags have outrageous levels of sodium and chemical diacetyl (what makes the buttery taste) that is not a viable option for those health conscious types.
More like 99% MISLEADING, ammirite? No? Okay. Well, it totally is. The whole allure of the product is that it's delicious with it's multitude of strange processed flavors and has a low caloric intake. In reality, many flavored yogurts could have an upwards of 15 grams of sugar in the not-so-filling 6-ounce serving.
