This is, in part, due to marketing. Some foods have earned the reputation of being “fitness-friendly” because influencers have broadcasted them non-stop on their Instagram stories (we’re looking at you, 1,000-plus calorie smoothie bowls).
But as we’ve said before, gorgeous people with abs are not nutrition experts—you need to listen to the actual experts. Luckily, we’ve found one for you who is a trustworthy source of information.
So no matter how much the internet might tell you to eat these foods, we’re about to tell you why you should probably avoid them. As always, this doesn’t mean you need to cut them out entirely—but if a banging physique is what you’re after these will do no favors for you.
