Are you about to start a weight loss plan? Then quickly clean up your cupboards, pantry, and refrigerator. Yes! You heard it right. If you really want to become slim and fit then it’s crucial to set up the kitchen in a new way. This is because it’s a gradual process that needs tremendous willpower and persistence to achieve your goal.
Apart from regular exercise, you need to have an excellent diet plan. And while you prepare your diet plan, avoid these 10 high-calorie foods that will completely ruin your weight loss plan. Let’s take a look.
Yummy Fruit juice
Have you ever thought that fruit juice could be responsible for your weight gain? Even I was shocked when I found that out from my dietician. Fruits contain natural sugar. When you make juice out of them, it makes the content of sugar more concentrated. Along with that, fruit juices hardly contain any fiber. So instead of fruit juices, stick to vegetable juices for a much quicker weight loss.
Avocado is basically a superfood that is full of fiber and potassium. And you’ve probably heard that avocado has various health benefits. It lowers the risk of diabetes and cancer as it has low cholesterol levels. But due to the excessive fat content, you cannot eat them if you want to lose weight. So, either moderate how much avocado you’re eating or cut it out altogether (if the temptation is too much).
Sometimes we eat nuts just like how we eat popcorns. It’s delicious, isn’t it? But have you ever thought that nuts should be avoided if you want to lose weight? Yes, you heard it right. Nuts are full of fat and calories. So if you eat a handful of nuts daily, you may end up gaining some serious weight. One ounce of nuts carries 135 calories. So before eating nuts, think twice if you want to burn those calories.
Protein is seriously good for health. Isn’t it? But you need to keep in mind that these bars contain a high level of sugar and fat that help your body to gain weight. But your goal is exactly the opposite. So, you have to avoid them while you are trying to lose weight.
Not only does alcohol have a ton of calories, but it also has a tremendous negative impact on your daily routine. Before enjoying a glass of beer, keep in mind that 43 calories have been found in 100 ml beer while vodka has 231 calories. So, if you really want to burn fat, say no to alcohol for now.
You must have heard that salad can help you lose weight and it’s great for your health too. But if you intake packaged salad, then you will gain weight. Packaged salad and sauces contain a lot of cream, sugar, and salt that increases your calorie intake. So, instead, try lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and so on.
Dried fruits are super easy to eat. Sometimes we eat them while working or if we feel lazy. If you take 2 tablespoons of raisins, you actually take in the same amount of calories that are available in one cup of raspberries. Dried fruits are full of added sugar which is the biggest hindrance to losing weight. So, start avoiding them today.
Foods that are Gluten free
Gluten-free meals are full of calories. Thus you start gaining more weight if you take and eat them. It’s even worse than wheat or rice.
Flavored Yogurt is tempting. It’s so delicious that people cannot resist themselves. But do you know the reason behind it? It’s because flavored yogurt is full of sugar. You must have heard that yogurt is good for the skin and your health. But before taking in flavored yogurt, keep in mind that 6 ounce of yogurt contains 16 grams of sugar.
Nutrition water helps you to stay focused. But 20 ounce of a Nutrition water bottle has 30 grams sweetener. So, this supplement can increase your weight quickly. If you are about to start your weight loss plan, you should avoid it for now.
