29. Canned fruit is preserved in syrup and artificial flavoring
Here is another sweet treat that you need to say goodbye to. It might say fruit on the can, but there is almost nothing healthy about the contents. The fruit is drenched and preserved in syrup, artificial flavoring, and a host of other chemicals that are made to enlarge your belly. Food companies have tried to ease the conscience of the ever-growing health concerned masses by developing unsweetened varieties.
The sugar content might be at an acceptable level, but the fruit still lacks fiber and other nutrients. You’re filling your stomach with nutritious food that has no dietary value. The vitamins that you would typically find in fresh fruit also gets primarily destroyed during the canning process. Instead, get in the habit of using fresh fruit in your desserts and know what healthy sweeteners you can use.
