5. Cheese

Cheese may seem innocent enough, as it comes from milk, which we all grew up on. However, cheese is a calorie dense food that is high in fat. Yes, it packs a lot of protein, but so do other foods. It is easy to overconsume cheese, which leads to excessive fat and calorie intake. In addition, cheese is difficult to digest for many people, leading to bloating and gas.

If you are looking for a simple snack to give you energy, try almonds instead. Almonds will give you protein but offer healthier fats and a more satisfying feeling of fullness.
