They sound healthy, they look healthy, and food companies work hard to make you believe they are healthy. But many foods that get a good-for-you rap are anything but nutritious. They're packed with calories, fat, added sugars, and all kinds of artificial ingredients that your body doesn't need. Here are some of the worst offenders at the market.

Plus, it's normally packed with artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. And compared to Greek, regular yogurt is higher in sodium and lower in protein.
