I see a lot of links like these posted on Twitter, but this one struck me because it had a lot of foods that I like to eat in it.

I also eat Dannon light and fit yogurt every morning and it was the first thing to be mentioned as marginal in this article! It’s always good when someone can call these things to light for me and help me understand why I’m not losing weight even though my choices are “seemingly healthy.”
