It Turns Out That These Common Diet Foods Might Be Hindering Your Efforts To Be Healthy

Dieting is really tough. Really, really tough.

Yesterday one of our writers announced that he'd be attempting to do a sugar-free February. He lasted four hours and then we caught him scoffing gummy bears.

The trouble is that dieting and trying to cut down your portions can often end up just making you feel really hungry. Your body gets used to a certain level of food intake, and then when it doesn't get that much, it starts getting grouchy.

One snack you might look forward to if you're dieting is a yoghurt. You never usually struggle to find pretty low-fat yoghurt and they're so creamy and delicious. However, according to some diet experts, chowing down on a yoghurt when you're hungry might actually make you want to eat more.

Kayleen St. John, a dietician from the Natural Gourmet Institute spoke to TIME about the issues with using yoghurt as a healthy snack when you're dieting:

While yoghurt is constantly promoted as a super-healthy food, it truly depends on which one you choose to keep you full. A typical 6-ounce fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt clocks in at 150 calories, 6 grams protein, 1.5 grams fat and around 25 grams sugar. The higher carbohydrate load and very low fat content will keep you looking for more to eat, even after your last spoonful.
