Green juices aren't all as healthy as you may have thought they were.

You’re dining out with friends, or maybe taking a trip to a topnotch supermarket. You know that chocolate lava cake, boxes of candy, and deep-fried fish with tartar sauce aren’t healthy choices, so you look over the menu or through the aisles for something a little healthier.

The health food industry in America often sets us up for failure. To be completely honest, we’ve reached a point at which most Americans have nutrition horribly twisted, reaching for foods whose marketing campaigns have successfully duped us in terms of their quality and healthiness.

A package that suggests its contents are healthy or a small “low-calorie” symbol next to a menu item is no guarantee. So how can you be sure that the food you’ve chosen to spend your hard-earned money on is as nutritious as it’s supposed to be?

We’re here to help. We’ve decided that it was high time to update our 2012 list of 20 “Healthy” Foods That Are Actually Unhealthy (And Fixes). While some of the foods in the following slideshow were considered unhealthy in 2012 are still considered so in 2016, others are more recent additions, including trendy health foods. Many of these foods appeared on our list of 27 Foods Doctors Won’t Eat and Why, while others came from Jennifer Leah Gottlieb, certified personal trainer and weight-loss specialist of The National Academy of Sports Medicine, in her feature on The Daily Meal, These 5 ‘Healthy’ Foods Are Hindering Your Weight-Loss Goals. With that in mind, you can consider the following slideshow a comprehensive roundup of unhealthy “health” foods as told by doctors, registered dietitians, personal trainers, and other healthy eating specialists.
