You can absolutely devour on these food items without a huge cheat guilt on your diet. Check out these foods that are considered unhealthy but are actually not.

Everyone in this world is calling them on being all in for body positivity and loving what they have and being the way they are without changing anything about them, however, deep down we all want to be fit and healthy. Because if not so then why would be guilt tripping every time we consume junk food and something that was extremely unhealthy, yet delicious?

And, for many, the path of healthy diet and exercising is short-lived because of the factor of how hard it is. You have to work out and in order to do that perfectly, you kinda need to give up on certain things. And, a majority of the time, the food that is healthy, doesn’t taste amazing, which is why we don’t often consume it.

However, there are a lot of things that have just been name-shamed for not being healthy and something that you would have to be guilty about. And, this comes from the lack of knowledge about proteins and nutrients in a specific food item. So, we have gathered a list of food items that are considered unhealthy, but in reality, they’re not. These food items, if consumed in a proper manner because we know that an excess of anything is bad, don’t have a hazardous effect on your diet or body.

Whenever someone is trying to lose weight, they are given the first rule of a healthy diet and that is to quit eating bananas at any cost. Many consider them to completely turn around their weight loss calendar and can eventually lead on to increased calories in the body. However, bananas are full of healthy nutrients and a great source of protein, plus, they help you in clearing acne and making your hair shiny.

2. Potatoes

Potatoes are another food item that has been under the bad light of so many trainers and annoying relatives and are considered to be too fatty to consume. Everyone has the same advice of replacing white potatoes with sweet potatoes for a much better result, however, it seems as if very few people actually know and then acknowledge the benefits that it possesses. Potatoes are full of Vitamin B and Vitamin C.

3. Red Wine

If you love to end up a busy day at work by relaxing with a glass of red wine, every now and then, yet hate yourself for being this person because of all the calories that a glass of red wine bring in with it, then you need to get educated on it. Red wine, in reality, has a lot of good things for your skin and body. It is filled with antioxidants that can help you in getting glowing, soft and even-toned skin, plus, it has also proven to be great for the heart if consumed in a moderate manner.

I can’t even remember the first time when I was told that an Egg has two faces, an unhealthy one which is the Yolk and the healthy one which is the Egg white. However, not many actually know that the yolk of an egg is just another powerhouse of proteins, nutrients, Vitamin D, calcium, iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B9, Vitamin B12, Vitamin K, phosphorus, and zinc.

5. Chocolate

Even though, it’s a commonly known fact that Chocolate indeed has a lot of good things in it, but yet we keep ourselves away from it and just think about the unhealthy aspect of it. However, do remember that the chocolate that I’m talking about is Dark chocolate and not the sugary kind. It’s packed with various antioxidants and has been proven to prevent various neurological and heart diseases.

So, which is your favourite food item from this list?
