Foods to Avoid During a Diet
Dieting can be a difficult process. The most difficult phase is when you first start. It is very hard to keep up with it when you aren’t used to the diet just yet. However, with enough discipline and focus, it can be done! However, just to give you a head start, here are a few things that you should definitely avoid if you want your diet to be a success!
French Fries and Potato Chips
Potatoes in their natural form are healthy and good for you; however, once you deep fry anything, the majority of its nutritional value goes out the window! French fries and other deep fried foods are incredibly fattening and should be avoided at all costs!
Sugary like artificial orange juices, coke, sprite, and so on are seriously bad for your health! Not only do they cause weight gain, but the sugars contained within them damage your digestive system over time. Because sugary drinks don’t register in your brain as solid foods, their entire contents are absorbed directly into your system. Any carbs within these drinks, of which there are many, are absorbed directly and pop out right on your stomach line! If you don’t want your belly sticking out, then I suggest that you stop drinking sugary drinks!
White bread has been refined to death and contains many extra sugars. The value of grains is already quite low for your body; in fact, many diets omit grain-based foods completely! White bread is the worst by far as any nutrition that used to be on the whole grain bread has been removed, leaving only carbs and sugars!
I don’t think this one comes as much of a shock to anyone. Candy bars contain insane amounts of sugar, non-natural oils, as well as refined flour, making them dangerously unhealthy. The average candy bar contains 300 calories on its own! If you really like your sugars, try a piece of fruit instead.
Pastries, Cookies and Cakes
Pastries, cookies, and cakes are filled with artificial flavours, refined sugars and flours, as well as a ton of trans fats that are responsible for a lot of today’s diseases!
Large Portions of Alcohol
In truth, the mystery of whether or not alcohol is good for you has yet to be proven. There seems to be some amount of healthiness in consuming moderate amounts of alcohol. However, when it comes to beer, there is no mystery that it is bad for your health. Beer can and does fall under the same category as sugary drinks, as that is basically what it is. Beer should be avoided completely, while other drinks, such as wines or whiskey, can be consumed in small or moderate amounts. If you drink too much at once, not only is it bad for your diet, but it is also bad for your overall health! Please do not overeat or over drink any of the above things! Avoid them at all costs so that you and your diet can have a happy healthy relationship!
