Scotty’s been working on his front rack positioning and Ryan’s working on no handed cleans.

Marketing and advertising have such a huge role in what the general public considers healthy food choices.  Walk through any supermarket and you’ll see the term “healthy” in front of words like cereal and snacks.  Most of us know that these aren’t good choices when it comes to food, but the general less informed public might not.

I came across an interesting blog that discussed food that is labeled or touted as healthy, but clearly isn’t.  

Check out the full blog here and let us know what you think.

Here’s a sample of some of the items on the list:

Fruit Juices:  Most fruit juices contain very little actual fruit.  Instead they contain artificial flavoring and sugar.  Fruit juice contains no fiber and there’s nothing to stop you from downing massive amounts of sugar in a short amount of time.

Low Fat or Fat Free Foods:  When the anti-fat message first came out, food manufacturers started producing “healthy”(there it is) products that were low-fat or fat-free, problem is the food wasn’t very tasty.  In order to make it tasty they started adding all sorts of artificial flavoring, chemicals, and tons of sugar, turning what was originally healthy into some unhealthy.

Energy Bars:  Simply, most of them are highly processed and contain more harmful ingredients than beneficial ones.  Sugar, artificial flavors, read the labels and most likely you’ll find these ingredients.  Spend your money on real food.  It might not be as convenient, but at least you’ll know what you’re eating.

Check out the blog and the other 8 so called Healthy options.
