As anyone who has decided to lose weight knows, exercise is very important. So…
Cut out the following four foods:
The problem with most cheeses is that the average one is made of up of 70 percent fat, and not the good kind of fats either like olives, avocados and walnuts. (Psst! Cheese is actually considered a “bad” fat, or more appropriately, saturated fat. The problem with saturated fats is that they cause cholesterol to build up in your blood stream and may cause heart disease. Some cheeses, however, are lower in saturated fats, making them the go-to choice if you simply can’t cut out the food completely. Feta, ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella are a few that are often allowed, and even encouraged (in moderation), in most diets.
Pasta. Carbohydrates—we love them, but we hate what they can do to us. Carbohydrates, but especially refined grains (as opposed to whole grains), have been shown to cause an increased risk of heart disease, weight gain, LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol, blood cholesterol, and more.
Much like pasta, bread is full of carbs, which may cause many of the undesired effects mentioned above. Unfortunately, refining grains removes the healthful germ and bran, causing a higher calorie food that leaves you feeling hungry faster. (A vicious little cycle, that one.) Moderation is key and multigrain is a better alternative to plain white bread if you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to bread.
Soft drinks. Not good, that is why you will not find a diet that condones them. In regard to weight loss, non-diet soft drinks have a huge amount of sugar in them which can cause obesity, insulin resistance, heart disease and diabetes. Because water is the absolute best for your body.
