Food #13: Bagels
A bagel may not be fried, but the sad fact is that a bagel is a carb bomb of calories. Most regular sized bagels contain upwards of 400 calories and aren’t made of whole grains. White flour bagels aren’t going to give you enough fiber to properly move it through your system for easier digestion. If you must have a bagel, do this simple trick. Cut it in half and pull out some of it’s insides. They call this in the New York bagel shops, a “skinny bagel.” Just ask for it “scooped out” and you’ll be getting less carbs, but will still be able to enjoy that chewy outer layer.
