Frozen yogurt:

Sure some yogurt is healthy, and can be a good substitute for the creamy crack called ice cream. But hold the Froyo! Portions play a huge role when it comes to frozen yogurt.

One serving is four ounces or a half-cup (which is rarely what they give you at the store) and can have upwards of 20 grams of sugar. Even if it’s fat-free, the calories add up quickly. And despite its name, frozen yogurt is closer in nutritional makeup to ice cream than regular yogurt.

Coffee house drinks:

When you buy that Starbucks drink, do you know it’s a huge downfall to dieting? Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino made with nonfat milk contains 270 calories and 61 grams of sugar.

That’s almost 15 teaspoons of sugar in one drink! Instead of coffee, try a green tea with skim milk, and add some fresh fruit with it.

  1. But I love Craisins so much! I know they’re bad for me, so I eat them sparingly. But sometimes they come to the rescue when I want a candy bar or cookies. If I eat a serving, then it usually keeps me from going to the store for junk.
