Bagels and its normal counterparts (butter or cream cheeses) can cause inflammation. Most of the bagels have between 300-500 calories unless it’s truly 100% whole grain. Bagels are full of refined carbohydrates which have been linked to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Bagels are high on the glycemic index, increasing insulin as well as inflammation. All of these factors can lead to acne, aging prematurely and weight gain. It’s important to note also that one bagel contains up to 3 servings of carbohydrates.
