Are you trying to lose weight?

You’re working out, you’re counting calories, but still, you’re not getting any results?

It might be because you’re eating these 6 foods that keep you from shedding those extra pounds.

In this video, I’ll show you exactly what foods you must stop eating to lose weight permanently… and which foods to replace them with.

You’ve probably heard that the one thing that truly matters for weight loss and weight gain is calories in, calories out.

If you burn more calories than you eat, you should lose weight, right?

True, however, if you only eat donuts and cake, will you get the protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals you need for a lean, healthy body?

You won’t – and that’s why a proper diet is so important.

A calorie is not a calorie – some food are simply better for you than others.

A 100 grams of fructose won’t have the same impact on the body as 100 grams of quality protein.

The fructose will lead to insulin resistance, higher ghrelin levels and increased appetite,

The protein will give you a feeling of fullness which will prevent overeating, not to mention that it will help you build muscle.

Now that you know that calories aren’t all that matters, let’s take a look at the 7 foods you should drop if you want to lose fat.

1. Sugar

With a nickname like “white death”, it’s no surprise sugar is at the top of this list.

Sugar is nothing more than empty calories.

It has no nutritional value, no vitamins and no minerals.

It spikes your blood glucose and in the long term leads to metabolic syndrome, obesity, cardiovascular disease and especially type II diabetes.

You can even get addicted to it and suffer withdrawal symptoms because sugar causes a release of dopamine in the reward center of the brain.

Not to mention that it is extremely bad for you teeth.

So what can you when you get the sweet tooth?

Raw honey is a great substitute that won’t spike your insulin and actually has a ton of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

2. Refined grains

Pasta, bread, and pizza are delicious.

However, most of them are made out of refined grains.

Refined grains are high on the glycemic index and can spike your blood sugar levels, leading to weight gain and type II diabetes.
One study found that eating just two slices of white bread per day was linked to a 40% greater risk of weight gain and obesity (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25335643/).

In the process of refinement, the bran and germ of the grain are removed, along with most of the nutrients.

But don’t worry, you can still eat grains – just make sure they’re whole.

3. All sodas and sugary drinks, diet or not

What goes for sugar goes for sugary drinks as well.

If sugar is just empty calories, then sugary drinks are liquid calories.

The problem with these is that we don’t really detect them. You can drink a whole meal’s worth of calories and still be hungry.

A single bottle of Coca-Cola “only” has 184 calories, but even if you just have one or two a day, they add up quickly.

The best solution is to simply cut them out completely and drink water.

4. Alcohol

Alcohol has more calories per gram than carbs or protein – 7.

That means it is easy to go over your week’s calories on a Friday night out.

But it’s not just the calories.

Alcohol is a poison to the body. When you drink it, the liver burns alcohol instead of fat – stopping your fat burning for several hours.

For example, a regular beer has 150 calories. A few of those, and some fast food at the end of the night can quickly come out to over 1000 in calories.

If you want to drink, do it in moderation.

5. Salt

Unlike most of this list, salt is the one thing you shouldn’t give up on.

The two minerals found in it – sodium and chloride – are both necessary for optimal function of the body.

Going too low leads to higher LDL levels, increased insulin resistance, increased risk of death from heart disease, heart failure and type II diabetes.

However, too much salt has been linked to stomach cancer. In fact, people with high salt intake have a 68% higher risk of stomach cancer. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22296873)

Over 90% of Americans eat too much salt (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22854410/).

But most of that comes from processed foods, which we know are bad.

If you stop eating processed foods most of the time, you don’t need to worry about salt too much.

Trans fat

Eating fat doesn’t make you fat and not all fats are bad for you.

However, trans fats should definitely be avoided.

Short for trans fatty acids

  2. So basically avoid and limit the following. Sugar, pasta, white bread, refined grains, soda, booze, overuse of salt, trans fat, creamer, frosting, partial hydrogenated oil, deep fat fried food.

  3. Anyone looking for an powerful weight loss program is over here bestweightlossprograms2018.blogspot. com > Hope it will help.

  4. First of all, salt is not a food, it's a mineral (i.e. it has no calories and macro-nutritional value). Second, the whole "salt causes stomach cancer" thing is based on a study done in Asian countries where salt is used as a preservative due to the lack of refrigeration. When salt is used as a preservative, it is at MUCH higher levels than is even used in processed snack foods such as potato chips. Furthermore, from the same group who did the Asian study, they wrote the following, "The evidence on salt in diets from elsewhere in the world is inconclusive – this could be because of difficulties in measuring total salt. Evidence on total salt intake, from studies worldwide, didn’t show a strong link with stomach cancer. More research needs to be done to examine the impact of high-salt foods commonly eaten in the West." Third, on the issue of fats… the notion that saturated fats are categorically bad for you is a relic of the Lipid Hypothesis (i.e the whole 'fat causes heart disease' crap) that was put forth by that hack, Ancel Keys, and which unfortunately persists to this day. As you mentioned, good fats include things like coconut oil which is actually 90% SATURATED FAT. Finally, saturated fats are more effective at raising HDL levels than unsaturated fats. The key is to consume GOOD quality saturated fats (i.e. butter from grass-fed cows, tallow from grass-fed cows, and of course, grass-fed beef).

  5. I need to confess: the only way that I founded to flee from drinking soda, coke and so on was…. not buying them anymore!

  6. How about Coca Cola zero? I know it is not healthy but instead of sugar it has aspartam which is sugary but has no calories. So would coca cola zero make me gain weight?
