Doctor Agapkin named pseudo-healthy products that interfere with weight loss

Doctor Sergei Agapkin: many people, trying to lose weight, eat foods that they mistakenly think are dietary.

Doctor Agapkin warned Russians that some Foods eaten frequently or regularly interfere with weight loss by specifically affecting blood sugar and insulin levels, hormonal production, or liver function.

“Many manufacturers add starch and sugar to products for taste, which increases not only their calorie content, but also their glycemic load. The consumption of such products stimulates the processes of fat deposition,” the specialist warned.
Sergei Agapkin named such pseudo-healthy products that interfere with weight loss as low-fat yogurts and other low-fat dairy products containing added sugar, as well as a variety of muesli and cereals, which are often presented as healthy breakfast options or snack.

“For example, fitness muesli is often fried in oil and sugar is added,” the doctor noted.
In addition, desserts containing fructose are products that interfere with weight loss. They are often positioned as “sugar-free” and give the impression of being “lighter” and more dietary. But in fact, these are pseudo-healthy options for sweets, since fructose is much more actively processed by the human liver into fat, the expert emphasized.
