    13 Healthy Foods That Can Make You Fat
    http://www.cosmopolitan.com/advice/h...c_fcbk#slide-1

    Chips, gooey desserts, anything that starts with fried — you know to fight off these calorie cows with a stick. What's tricky is that some foods with famously healthy reputations are actually worse for your weight than the snacks in vending machines and drive-throughs. We fill you in on what they are and why they keep you from hitting that golden number on the scale.

    Sushi Rolls
    The veggies and seaweed wrap are low-cal, but a lot of the most popular rolls are slathered with cream cheese or mayo (e.g., in that spicy sauce that comes on many options), and the seafood inside may be tempura-battered. Thanks to those ingredients, a standard roll can clock in at 500 to 600 calories. Also, soy sauce is loaded with sodium. It won't make you gain weight, but it'll cause you to retain water, so your jeans will feel (and look) tighter.

    Dried Fruit
    Cup for cup, dried fruit has five to eight times more calories than the fresh kind because it has been dehydrated and is much denser. Fresh grapes, for example, have 60 calories per cup, while raisins have 460. And many brands add sugar, amping up the calorie count even more.

    Granola
    Since it's loaded with good-for-you nuts and oats, it's too bad that they add oil to make it crisp and tons of sugar for more yumminess. One bowl racks up around 500 calories. Other cereals with the same nutrients but less oil and sugar pack half that.

    Bran Muffins
    Whether it's plain bran or mixed with apples or bananas, the fiber fills you up, sure, but considering all the sugar and butter it delivers, a bran muffin is basically just a round slice of cake. One weighs in at about 20 grams of fat, 420 calories, and 34 grams of sugar.

    Half-and-Half
    You put so little into your coffee, it seems like a harmless way to get calcium — especially when compared to full-fat cream. But a few spoonfuls per cup of joe two or three times a day quickly turns into 200 or more calories plus the same amount of fat as a big pat of butter!

    Wraps
    No matter what you put in it, the average wrap is a major offender. If you roll it out, it can be 1 foot across — seriously — and pack up to 300 calories. Since the surface area is way bigger than two slices of bread, you coat it with a lot more mayo or dressing than you would a sub or sandwich.

    Bottled Teas
    Most store-bought brands are souped up with sugar or honey, which are crazy-caloric sweeteners. Oh, and one bottle can contain two or more servings, bringing the calorie count to almost 200 — similar to a bottle of soda.

    Rice Cakes
    These light snacks are fat-free and low in calories, but they're also completely lacking in fiber or protein — ingredients that experts say actually curb hunger. That means downing two or three won't do anything but add more calories to your daily total and leave you craving something with substance. And limit the flavored kinds — they don't satisfy you more and they tend to have lots of sugar or sodium.

    Veggie Burgers
    Sure, skipping beef in lieu of a meat-free patty may save you a little fat and cholesterol. But depending on the brand and what you put on it, you could easily end up housing more than 1,000 calories. The cheese that often binds the veggies together and the huge size of the burgers are anything but diet-friendly. Add a bun and some ketchup and you might as well have had the quarter-pounder.

    Juice
    Reaching your recommended daily fruit-serving goal by getting it in liquid form might be the reason you can't fit into last year's LBD. A 16-ounce bottle of OJ or apple juice has 55 grams of carbohydrates, the equivalent of five slices of bread. And most of that is sugar — a whopping 12 spoonfuls of it.

    Diet Microwave Meals
    The lean ready-to-eat dishes tend to be high in sodium — since the manufacturers can't rely on calorie-rich fat to make the stuff taste good, they resort to salt. As a result, scarfing them will make you retain water, especially in your arms and legs, leaving you puffy.

    Salads

    There's nothing better for you or your waist than naked veggies, but the shredded cheese, candied nuts, croutons, and globs of dressing often make salads as caloric as an oversize dish of pasta. And nutritionists are quick to point out that innocent-sounding vinaigrettes, though not as fattening as ranches, can be almost as high-cal.

    Tofu
    Order this health food at a restaurant and what you'll most likely get is a plateful of sodium, calories, saturated fat, and even sugar. Tofu itself isn't the issue — the problem is that the white stuff is so bland, it's often served doused in decadent sauces then deep-fried to give it flavor and texture, making it a diet disaster

    Thanks for your useful and informative post! All this stuff I really like especially sushi rolls and rice cakes. I wonder what kind of rice I should use into these cakes. I have heard that white rice contains much fat. It is better to consume brown rice. What do you think about it?

      This is a very tricky situation.

      Brown rice and whole grains are a better option for healthy people,
      HOWEVER; for CKD patients who need to watch their phosphorus, white rice is a better option.*

      White rice is a starch, which turns into sugar and goes into bloodstream immediately.
      Too much sugar in the bloodstream (all the time) can raise your triglycerides**.

      Always consult with your renal dietitian to see if you can incorporate brown rice into your diet.

      Take care


      * Based on a dialysis diet given to me by my renal dietitian.

      ** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triglyceride In humans, triglycerides are a mechanism for storing unused calories, and their high concentration in blood correlates with the consumption of starchy and other high carbohydrate foods.
      High levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream have been linked to atherosclerosis and, by extension, the risk of heart disease and stroke

          Dee,

          Hope you're doing well. Hey my friend, the way my medical healthcare team has taught me is everything in moderation. Renal diet is not necessarily avoiding EVERYTHING unless your numbers are completely outta whack (too high) that can put your life at danger.
          For those who take binders, take them with any high phos food.


          Oh about the new name......... I lost my identity with this new and improved format.
          I'm not necessarily happy about it, but hey. I guess in part it can be my fault since I signed up so long ago and no longer have the password to the email address I had back in 2005. oh well.
          My new username or the one I will now be posting under is once again "Marina" with no old post history

          Take care of yourself!!

          The new and improved Marina

            Marina, No no no. They need to transfer your other posts to this forum, whether you have the password or not. There must be a way. There is too much valuable information lost. I'm bummed. (I wondered what Marinaoldusername was all about!)


            JustDee, Glad to see you on here! Catch us up on what's new.

            May you always have Love to share, Health to spare, and Friends that care

              Hi Toni,

              The info is still here.


              Since we never had to log in with an email account in the past, I forgot which one I registered with (too long to remember).
              I contacted Brandon, who's been very helpful by the way.
              Since the username "Marina" already existed, they had to change/update my other account to Marinaoldusername.
              I guess the other option was to delete my other account but then all the info I had posted would go with the name.

              It's all good. Hopefully once they get everything situated they can once again link my old posts to this name. If people look OR I refer to info I posted in the past, people can click on my name and find my posts. Oh wait, I hope that's still an option to look up info. It was in the old set up.

              Have a great 4th !!!
