Even if you stick to a strict diet and fitness routine, it’s possible you aren’t actually as healthy as you may think. Many of your daily habits and rituals could actually be harmful to your health. To help check yourself before you wreck yourself, here are six health mistakes you’re probably making.
1. Your fitness foods aren’t keeping you fit
When it comes to staying fit, why wouldn’t you reach for granola bars or cereal that promote a healthy lifestyle on the packaging? Well as it turns out, according to a study, these “nutritious foods” aren’t keeping you as healthy as you may think. In the study, researchers found that “fitness” foods caused consumers to eat more and work out less. So the next time you chow down on a Clif bar before a workout, just remember the food itself won’t help you lose weight. You still need to put in the legwork to burn off calories.
