In this post, I am going to tell you about some foods you should not eat to lose weight. Please, NOW BEWARE, some of this food will be your very favorite foods in the world. But let me tell you this. THEY ARE VERY BAD FOR YOU AND YOUR WEIGHT. Yes, that’s correct, you read it right. Not only will they not be good for your health. They will also be bad, and I do mean bad, for adding lbs to the scale readings.
Foods You Should Not Eat To Lose Weight
In order to eat right, we need to watch the 3 types of things in the food that we will eat.
These are –
Now in case you were not aware, salt is very bad for us indeed. Especially if we are trying to lose weight naturally. It is bad enough when it is already in the foods that we eat. So there is no way that we should be adding extra salt to the foods that already contain it. That is nothing but madness if you think about it. Yes?
I cannot say enough times how bad for us too much SALT is. It is the cause of many problems as you will no doubt read there. And as you can tell from the article that tells you about it. There are some of our most like foods on the list. Although, nevertheless, they are very bad for us.
I also say in the article, they are not all terrible for us. It is just that a lot of people choose to add salt to these foods. And that will be no way to lose weight fast and safely. No way at all. Why? Because to much salt as I say is bad for your health.
There is a lot of salt in these foods.
- White Potato mixes that you can buy
- Pasta sauce in a bottle or a can
- Different types of yeast bread
- Salad dressings
- Vegetable oil
- All plain milk
- Meat mixture dishes
They are some of the more common ones.
The next type of foods you should not eat to lose weight is anything SUGARY. This is another VERY bad thing for our weight. Why is it bad for our weight you may wonder? It is what they call “Empty calories”. This will mean that when you eat foods with a lot of sugar, or, even when you add sugar. The sugar contains a very large amount of calories but has no good nutrients in it.
Hence the words “Empty calories”.
For example –
- Most of the soft drinks
Although we eat an amount of fructose in fruits. The fructose in sugar that we add to the foods is sometimes put on to our liver. This can cause fatty liver disease. The medical people call this non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. (1)
Eating a lot of sugar causes the bodies insulin levels to rise. This can cause forms of the deadly disease, cancer. So, as much as you may like the sweet, cheap foods. It is best to avoid eating them.
The sugar that we eat will also cause an increase in the levels of something that they call dopamine. (A hormone) This works the reward center of the brain. Have you ever heard anyone say that they have not had their chocolate fix for example? Yes. It is highly addictive.
So now, are you starting to see why sugar really is absolutely terrible for you as a whole?
Although sugar tastes great, it also raises your cholesterol. This can lead to heart disease. And I am sure that you do not want this. So, go easy on your intake of the stuff yes?
But Why Is It Bad For Weight Loss
As I say, sugar causes a rise in the insulin levels of the body. The body then goes on to store it as something they call “glycogen”. This can be bad for us, because if we are not very active. Then, the body will store the glycogen that we do not use for energy, as fat. Exactly, FAT.
In other words, if you are very active anyway, then you will not be overweight. However, if you are inactive then you will just get fatter eating these sweet JUNK FOODS.
It is a no-win situation.
Foods that are high in sugar are –
- Some Low-Fat yogurts (Firstly, check)
- BBQ sauce
- When coffee has an extra flavor
- Smoothies in a bottle
- Baked beans in a can
- Fruit in a can
The above are some of the more common ones that you should be aware of.
Foods You Should Not Eat To Lose Weight (Cont’d)
The third one to be aware of are certain fats. You must remember, not all fats are bad for you. However, there are 2 of them that are bad or you. These being trans-fats and fats that are from saturates.
The 2 bad fats that I say, are what cause a lot of diseases that we can get.
The saturated fat is in –
- ice cream
- Full-fat cheese
- Whole milk
- And fatty meat such as bacon and fatty sausages.
Eating too much/many of these will mean that you will pile on the lbs, and in a big way.
Another kind of fat that is not only bad for our health but also our weight, are trans-fats. These are in –
- Breakfast sandwiches that you can buy.
- Microwave popcorn.
- Doughnuts (These are very bad).
- Any candy that has a cream filling.
- Stick or tub margarine.
- Biscuit (These too, are common but really bad).
- And finally, all cakes are VERY BAD for us.
Although temptation will always come our way. It is great if you learn how to bridge the gap between your meals.
