Foods to Avoid for Weight Loss

One of the simple ways to help you lose weight is to give your diet simple tweaks. Avoiding foods that can cause weight gain and make you more hungry most of the time can help you achieve your goal of shredding pounds. Learn what foods to avoid for weight loss.

Whole potatoes are healthy and filling, but french fries and potato chips are not. They are very high in calories, and it’s easy to eat way too many of them. In observational studies, consuming French fries and potato chips has been linked to weight gain. One study even found that potato chips may contribute to more weight gain per serving than any other food. What’s more, baked, roasted or fried potatoes may contain cancer-causing substances called acrylamides. Therefore, it’s best to eat plain, boiled potatoes.

If you are serious about shredding pounds, do not include sodas and other sugary drinks in your diet. In addition to causing weight gain, these drinks can be detrimental to your health if consumed in excess. Candy bars are yummy. However, some of us may not realize that they are low in nutrients and high in calories. Instead of eating candy bars for snacks, opt for nuts or fresh fruits.

Frozen meals are another type of food that your must skip if you want to succeed in your weight loss.

Frozen “healthy” dinners are a very dangerous choice when you’re trying to lose weight. They may be low in fat or sugar, but they are full of junk. It can be easy to be suckered into the convenience of microwave meals. Some public favorite frozen meals are over 1000 calories a serving! Instead, make left over portions from dinners and reheat them for lunches. This way you know exactly what went into your food.
