1. Eating Too Many “Fitness” Foods
Think you’re doing the right thing by eating a “fitness” bar before or after your workout? Think again. A study in the Journal of Marketing Research states that people who rely on and believe in these “fitness” bars are making a huge mistake, and will end up piling on the pounds instead of losing weight. This is because these bars are usually full of sugar and are high in calories. You’d be much better off by eating a banana or a simple slice of toast.
