"Healthy foods" not so healthy

Having trouble losing weight when all you do is eat the right things? Maybe it's because the "right things" are in fact the wrong things.

Beware of food items that say they are low-fat and fat-free. Although these claims are true, the problem is that the missing fat has to be replaced with something in order for the food to still taste good. The culprit: sugar. Not exactly what you want to be eating if you're trying to stay fit.

Some low-fat food items that can still pack on the pounds:

• breakfast cereal
• sushi
• fruit juice
• creamy salad dressing
• pretzels
• peanut butter
