Avoid These Foods To Lose Weight

Author : dve smit


The foods that we eat can affect your body in a number of ways, and ultimately affect your health as well. Being overweight can cause a number of serious health problems. There's some food to avoid to lose weight and be healthy.

Of course most people know about saturated fat and trans fatty acids and the potential problems that they can cause with your cardiovascular health. Heart disease, plaque build up, cancer, etc. The food you eat at fast food restaurants tend to be high in both saturated fat and trans fatty acids. If you must eat there stick to the salads (low fat or no fat dressings) and broiled chicken.

You should also try and avoid refined and processed foods as they tend to help making weight loss more difficult and often times leads to weight gain and poor nutrition instead. Refined foods such as white rice, white flour, bleached flour, etc. have had the vitamins and nutrients bleached out and the body doesn't work as hard to digest it, meaning you'll tend to gain more weight, if that's not bad enough you're also filling up with empty calories. The fiber in unrefined foods help to move the excess food you eat out of the body before it turns to fat and help lose weight.

Also avoid sugary foods and high glycemic foods. For example, certain types of refined carbohydrate (those with a high-GI value) is absorbed by the body to quickly and raises the blood sugar levels causing a "sugar spike". This sometimes causes your body to overreact which helps to produce excess insulin which removes the sugar from your bloodstream resulting in low blood sugar which can eventually result in health problems. Thus resulting in mood and appetite swings from this yo-yo effect from the high and low blood sugar swings.

Eating low glycemic food results in more consistent blood sugar levels. Low glycemic foods includes apples, plums, cherries, yogurt, skim milk, etc. High sugary foods should also be avoided. Fruit contain sugars so if possible eat the entire fruit as it contains fiber, as opposed to just drinking the juice, the fiber will help to minimize the spike in your blood sugar.

Other foods to avoid to lose weight are hydrogenated oil, partially hydrogenated oil, vegetable shortening, high fructose corn syrup, corn oil, margerine, preservatives that has been added.

And another great weight loss tip is to eat smaller and more frequent meals and snacks. Rather then three large meals a day spread out your meals and snacks more evenly throughout the day. This will help to keep your blood sugar level more consistent so you will have less mood and appetite swings and be less likely to binge and overeat. Your metabolism will also run smoother and burn fat more efficiently.
