Sneaky Sweets

Mar 03, 10 Sneaky Sweets

there ae sugars in unexpected foods I confess I have an enormous sweet tooth which accounts for my equally enormous butt. But at least when I’m scarfing down dulce de leche and churros, I know what I’m getting myself into. They don’t pretend to be anything other than high-calorie snacks designed only to satisfy sugar cravings and enlarge your thighs.

What really gets me are those foods that look so innocent to your face, but are really cramming you full of added sugar behind your back – kind of what Lindsay Lohan did to Rachel McAdams in Mean Girls. One such example? Granola bars. Yes, those pretending-to-be-healthy hypocrites can pack up to 11 grams of added sugar (1g=4 calories). Another mosquita muerta is “reduced calorie” salad dressing, a one cup serving of which can run you anywhere from 50 to 100 grams of added sugar (*gasp!*). Other surprisingly sneaky foods include ketchup, powdered lemonade, cream substitutes and baked beans. Hidden calories are lurking everywhere, my friend, check labels to make sure your food isn’t packing more sugar than a piñata.
