Just like milk, cheese is dairy and can be a great source of calcium and protein.

However, cheese contains a lot of fat and is high in calories. One ounce (28 grams) of cheddar has 9 grams of fat and over 100 calories.

Healthy choice: Reduce your portion size. Go for cheese like feta or goat cheese. They contain fatty acids that will help you feel fuller and burn fat.

7. Whole Wheat Bread

This one is probably one of the most surprising. There are a lot of whole wheat breads that are just as processed as bleached flour white bread.

Why these breads are bad for your body? You digest processed grains easily and your blood sugar spikes. As a result, the calories are being stored as fat instead of muscles.

Healthy choice: Look for ‘100% Whole Grain’ breads.

8. Tofu

What Is Tofu, and Is It Good for You?

Many vegetarians like tofu. Similar to veggie burgers, it is healthy on its own. However, many recipes require fatty oils to cook it. As a result, you consume a lot of calories and fats.

Healthy choice: Cut on oils when preparing tofu.

9. Burritos

Burritos are convenient. You can get a lot of healthy ingredients into your wrap.

However, you need to remember about calories in the tortilla, which can reach up to 300 calories. In addition, you may get calories from sour cream, cheese and a fatty meat.

Healthy choice: Opt in for a burrito bowl instead of the tortilla. Otherwise, choose a whole grain option tortilla. Also, choose lean chicken meat, black beans, brown rice and veggies.
