Six foods that hurt weight lossDecember 15, 2016December 15, 2016Christine
 

Here are some foods you should avoid at all costs in order to achieve your weight loss goals.

Donuts

Donuts are probably one of the unhealthiest foods on the planet. They consist of nothing more than refined carbohydrates and sugar. They are high in calories, fats, carbs and other preservatives. Continued consumption of donuts will lead to weight gain digestive problems.

Chips
Chips are just about everybody’s guilty pleasure. Ah… the joys of crunching on them while watching a movie. Chips have high levels of trans fats due to the hydrogenated vegetable oils that are used to fry the chips. This will lead to weight gain and cardiovascular disease.

French fries
It has been said that French fries are more deadly than cigarettes. There may be some truth in this. High in trans fats and carcinogens, these foods can cause cancer.

 

Bagels
Bagels are another crowd pleaser. It has a very high glycemic index. It causes insulin spikes this creates inflammation in the body along with other health issues. Acne, body aches, clogged arteries, mood swings, etc. are all side effects of unstable insulin levels… and of course, weight gain. Skip the morning bagel.

Microwaved Popcorn
Microwaved popcorn. All the rage these days. Convenient, tasty and fun. Yet, they contain carcinogens and diacetyl. Both cause cancer.

Cereals
Cereals are another fat gain culprit. Most cereals are not good for your body despite being marketed as “healthy natural foods”. There is hardly anything natural about cereals. They are genetically modified foods that can harm you in the long run.

Just avoiding the unhealthy foods is half the battle won. Always remember the long term effects. Don’t give in to sinful pleasures in the short term which may lead to suffering in the long run and derail your weight loss plan.
