Alert the masses. This post may open some eyes for those of you who think you're being healthy by purchasing products labeled as "diet" food, when in reality, some of these foods actually have some really scary ingredients in them that do more harm than good. So, I've decided to dedicate this post to the top 5 most shocking diet fakers in my eyes. All of the following have a combination of some of the worst ingredients you could find in processed foods, so it definitely advised that you steer clear at all costs. I'll show you my top 5 picks along with a few of the bad ingredients each one has in it. Feel free to take a closer look for yourself- all of these products post their ingredients online!

#1 Kellogs Protein Bars and Cereals- contain:soy protein isolate, fructose, partially hydrogenated oil (aka trans fats!), LOTS of sugar, artificial flavors, and loads of empty carbs... this does NOT make losing weight easier... sorry Speak K that's a dirty lie!

#2 Quaker Chewy Bars: Contains corn syrup, artificial flavors, soy, caramel color... definite diet no-no.

#3 Whole Wheat Ritz Crackers: Did you know these are made from mostly regular old wheat flour? There is some whole grain wheat flour in there, but it's not the main ingredient. They also have high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils (aka trans fats), soy, more sugar... yikes.

#4 Microwave Popcorn: Many of these suckers don't put their ingredients online, and that's probably because most are made with partially hydrogenated oils (but list their serving size in a way that allows them to label their product as 0 trans fats), artificial flavors, and some of the kettle varieties have artificial sweeteners in them also... yikes!

#5 Coffeemate Sugar-Free Creamer: This might be the worst one yet. These suckers contain acesulfame potassium (aka CANCER), artificial flavors, and the first ingredient/most abundant.... partially hydrogenated oils which means you're basically drinking trans fats by the spoonful... GROSS! Oh, and the liquid version has corn syrup too... this takes the cake for WORST "diet" product out there!
