11 foods to avoid when you’re trying to lose weight


Every time you want to kickstart a healthy lifestyle and drop a few pounds, you’re overwhelmed by this insistent urge of eating unhealthy meals and snacks and end up with a kitchen stacked with them; at other times, you’re dead serious about changing your eating habits, but you don’t make enough progress and end up letting go.

There’s evidently no shortage of online articles providing a mixed bag of recommendations on how to lose weight fast and improve your diet quality. There are even weight loss camps for adults now. Some claim that certain foods are good for you and others say the exact opposite, making you wonder if what you’re eating is genuinely weight loss friendly or just another marketed-as-healthy food that doesn’t deliver what it claims.

Unfortunately, unless you’re a professional nutritionist, you probably can’t decide what to include in your weight loss food plan for you and what to avoid. Thus, this article provides you with 12 worst foods for weight loss.

Make sure to remove the 10th one from your grocery list!

12. Processed Foods



Relax, we’re not telling you can’t enjoy your weekly barbecue tradition, but it’s no secret that BBQ and other processed foods are up there on the top weight-gain inducing foods list. In fact, processed foods harbor significant amounts of sugar. Even a salad isn’t that healthy when dressing with a fructose-rich sauce. Note that sugar has a certain number of appellations, so it may be listed under any of them on products’ packages.

All in all, if you’re looking for a guaranteed weight loss, don’t hesitate to avoid processed foods. These are also rich in salt which we’ll discuss later in the article.
