Crazy, isn't it?! Banana chips are what I call "food fakers," meaning they seem innocent and guilt-free yet are really loaded with fat and calories. Those chips may be made from bananas, but they're usually deep-fried in oil and sweetened
with sugar. Half a cup has around 200 calories and 12 grams of fat! That's... BANANAS! A much better option? Freeze-dried banana bits! When fruit is freeze-dried, it's just zapped of all its moisture nothing is added. OR dehydrate them, is what I prefer and can be done at home! It's light and crispy and awesome. And an entire cup has only about 100 calories!

Okay, see that colourful bowl of your favorite "fat-free" cereal called Fruit Loops there. Ditch it! Quick, that sugar rush will get to you quicker than any cereal, what does that mean? Sugar ultimately can cause fat gain. The seasonal summer fruit, that we all love to eat in the summer... ouch! That is a diabetics dream for cravings BUT a death-wish for insulin travels. The BBQs burgers, processed meat, dogs... there, a popular one, ditch the 'wonderbread' 'wasteoftime' bun & focus on the quality protein instead, not the mystery processed kind either.
These quick, colourful foods send us into a blood-sugar roller coaster ride, and for some means ups n downs, weight gain, energy yo-yos, and vicious cravings. My advise, ditch it!
