5 Healthy Snacks That Make You GAIN Weight....BOO!

I hate reading stuff like this, but it's still important to know this stuff. Not that this is any excuse to grab the potato chips instead.....BUT, your "healthy" snacks may not be doing your diet any favors. :-(

 

Yogurt with Granola
So tasty together, BUT a half-cup of granola to your yogurt can easily add up to 300 calories and 15 grams of fat.

A Smoothie
Once you blend in milk or yogurt, plus bananas, strawberries, or other calorie-dense fruits and fruit juices, you're talking 300-400 calories—and that's before you add in protein powder, peanut butter, or seeds and nuts.

Grapes
Each grape has about 5 calories, but because they are small, it’s very easy to just keep eating and eating. So you can consume more than 200 calories' worth before you know it—without any of the protein you ideally want to have in a snack. 

Tuna Salad and Crackers
These handy snack kits look so weight loss-friendly, but a can of mayo-infused tuna and three to four crackers offers around 300 calories. Leaving out the mayo and eating the tuna WITHOUT the crackers is a much lower calorie option.

Hummus Dip and Pita Chips
Pita chips may be low in fat, but are just as calorie-packed as any kind of fried chip—and if you don't limit yourself to a reasonable amount of hummus, this snack can suddenly put you up around 300-calories or so.
