10 Unhealthiest Carbs To Stay Away From

1. Jams

Jams and jellies that come in jars can have a lot of extra sugar. Even though most of these are made with fruit, you will find that some brands use more extra sugar than fruit by weight.

2. Flavored yogurt

Plain yogurt is a great way to get calcium, protein, and probiotics, among other important nutrients. 

3. Pastries

Some pastries, like sweetened donuts or chocolate-filled croissants, have a very clear amount of sugar, but the amount of sugar in other pastries may surprise you.

4. White bread

it lacks many important nutrients. Most white breads don't have much grain or protein, and they may even have sugar added to them. 

5. Flour tortillas

Flour tacos are a staple food for many people, and they are often filled with gooey cheese.

6. Fruit snacks

Fruit snacks are a common part of many packed lunches, so they might as well be candy. Some fruit snacks may say "made with real fruit" on the package, but don't be fooled by this.

7. Sweetened cereal

With so many grains on the market, it can be hard to tell which ones are good and which ones are bad. First, look at how much extra sugar each cereal has.

8. Candy

An unsurprising source of sugar, candy may be one of the worst sources of carbohydrate.

9. Ice cream

ice cream has extra sugar and saturated fat, just like candy. It also has calories. One half-cup amount could have more than 200 calories, and, let's be honest, most of us eat more than that.

10. Sweetened coffee

A plain cup of black coffee is very low in calories and contains no sugar.
