It's easy to be swayed by claims like "Fat-free," "A full serving of vegetables in every ounce," or the mere suggestion of fruit on a label. But many foods positioned as "healthy" may still have ingredients lurking in them (often it's sugar) that make it a little less healthy than we're led to believe. Often when we eat "diet" or "health-labeled" foods (usually consumed at snack time), we think they don't really count as "real" calories, which means we often feel less satisfied and wind up eating more.
