Have you ever felt like you are doing everything right on your diet plan but you are still not seeing the results you desire?
Many people trying to lose weight find themselves in this position. They work hard on their approach and take care to follow their diet to the letter. But yet, something is amiss. The scale just isn’t going downward and they aren’t getting the results they were hoping for.
So what happened?
Often, the biggest problem is not their effort nor motivation. The problem is that they are letting certain foods into their diet plan that are sabotaging their results. Often these foods are designed to be fat loss foods but they really aren’t. Instead, they are adding unwanted calories to your diet.
What are these foods? Let’s go over three foods that you need to cut out of your diet immediately.
Fruit Flavored Yogurts
Fruit flavored yogurts are a favorite among many dieters but little do they know they are eating pint-sized sugar bombs each time they eat a small cup.
Next time when you pick out your favorite yogurt, check and double check the sugar content. You will be shocked to find out that there are 15 or more grams of sugar per serving.
Of course you can buy the sugar-free varieties, but then you’ll be taking in a number of unwanted artificial sweeteners, which can be just as bad for you.
So, the best solution is to opt for plain yogurt. Flavor it yourself by adding a handful of fresh berries.
The next thing that you want to get out of your diet plan are any products that are built to be “fat free”. These often state that they are fat free on the label.
But ask yourself, if the fat is removed, what is added? Something had to be added otherwise these just would not taste good.
The answer to that is sugar. Sugar has often been added to these foods and is what is causing them to still taste appealing.
Remember, if you are trying to lose body fat, sugar is just as bad — and often worse — than fat is.
The last type of foods that you need to be careful about including in your diet plan are protein bars. They may seem like a great option since they do contain protein and you are probably trying to get more protein into your diet.
But once again, you need to check that sugar content. Most protein bars have 15 grams of sugar or more per bar. Some have as high as 30 or even 40 grams of sugar depending on the calorie content.
So really, these protein bars are actually a glorified chocolate bar. While you can get some protein bars that have low sugar content (five grams or less per bar), you do need to search for them.
So there are three foods that you may be currently eating that could be hampering your weight loss and diet plan. Are any of these in your diet?
