Seriously, have your ever felt like you have been mislead by packaging, marketing or product placement in a grocery store?

You know what we mean…you pick up a product because it is pretty and healthy looking in the “organic” aisle with huge labels popping out at you like:

Gluten or Dairy Free!!
Low Sugar / Fat / Calorie!!
High Fibre!!

Keto / Paleo / Vegan!

We feeeel you!! We think it is safe to say that all of us have been victim to health washing at some point with foods and marketing.

We still remember the day we found some Gluten Free chips so thought “These must be better be a healthier version for me than regular chips”  even though we do not have any type of gluten intolerance…

Not to mention that was before we even remembered that potato chips are already NATURALLY gluten free because they are made from potatoes! (insert embarassment)

There marketing was sooooo good. Believe us, we ALL fall victim to the main buzz in media around the magic foods of the moment

So this week we did a Facebook Live Podcast Episode to tackle the topic of the Top 5 Foods that you think are healthy that Fitness Pro’s would never use with their clients  (plus a ton of behind the scenes nutrition coaching to make sure you never fall victim to these marketers again!
