14 Diet Foods to Avoid Improve your weight loss plan by avoiding these health diet disasters By Alyssa Shaffer

Diet Foods That Make You Fat

Thanks to confusing labels and unearned reputations, it�s difficult to know what�s good for you

If you�re reading, you�re probably interested in buying the healthiest foods. Just like us, you may even reach automatically for items with a �health halo,� such as spaghetti sauce (love that lycopene!), or labels like reduced fat!, low sodium!, and whole grain! But unless you�re a supersavvy shopper, be warned: Your diet may conceal some nasty surprises. That low-fat cottage cheese you love? It could be higher in sodium than potato chips. And the low-fat dressing you drizzle on your salad? It could contain nearly as much sugar as two chocolate chip cookies.

The truth is that no manufacturer wants to compromise on flavor, so even healthy-sounding products can contain appalling levels of sugar, salt, and bad fats. To save you time, we�ve flushed out some of the most surprising diet food offenders�and found some truly healthy alternatives.

From veggie chips to Greek yogurt, here are 14 �healthy� foods that really aren�t.
