What Are The Top 5 Worst Foods And Snacks?

"Which foods are the worst for me to eat?"

"I'm on a diet. What foods should I absolutely avoid like the plague?"

"I eat unhealthy snacks on a daily basis. How bad are they for me?"

"I'm getting fatter. Which foods in my diet could be causing it?"

Losing weight feels so good.

There’s nothing like seeing and feeling the unquestionable results of your hard fought diet and exercise routine.

However, in maintaining your accomplishment certain foods will completely sabotage your diet and weight loss goals so it’s smart to avoid them at all costs.

So which 5 foods and snacks fall into the category of totally sabotaging your diet?

Soda.

Most sodas, including some of the "sugarless" ones, have so many calories it's alarming! As you know, excessive sugar intake quickly contributes to weight gain.

Don't let the "diet" soda campaign fool you. Studies are showing that they may actually be just as bad or worse for you.

  • A typical 20 ounce can of soda contains an average of 16 teaspoons of sugar, which is way more that you'd want to consume in your day to day eating.
  • Choose less toxic options like ice cold water, coconut water and naturally extracted juices.

 

Snacks with hydrogenated oil.

Snacks with hydrogenated oil or partially hydrogenated oil will screw you over. Not only does hydrogenated oil result in a buildup of fat in the body, but it's also known to increase risk of heart disease. Most snacks, whether sweet or salty, contain hydrogenated oil. From potato chips to chocolate chip cookies, you're bound to pump this oil into your body by eating them.

  • Choose healthier snack options like nuts, which consist of healthy fats. Other great choices for snacks include veggie bites, fruit salads and granola.

 

Whole dairy.

Just one cup of whole milk contains 5 grams of saturated fat.

While saturated fat is necessary in any diet, too much is obviously bad for oyu.

  • Because dairy does have benefits like high protein and calcium, you might opt for low fat versions like 1% milk and low fat yogurt and cheese.
  • Remember that some prepared foods contain dairy, so be vigilant with those options as well.

 

Refined grains.

Refined grains are found in foods like white rice, and they cause drastic sugar spikes, which result in weight gain. Since there are so many alternatives to refined grains, you may be more than comfortable in getting rid of them altogether.

  • Opt for brown rice instead of white rice. It goes through less processing and has the fibrous benefits associated with whole grains.
  • Other products like quinoa and couscous are great substitutes for rice.

 

Processed food.

You can basically define processed food as anything "unnatural." These foods are filled with preservatives to extend the life of the product. They're also usually full of sugar, fat and carbohydrates – all elements which contribute directly to weight gain.

  • Eliminate packaged foods as much as possible to lessen your exposure to unwanted fat and sugar.
  • Replace processed foods with options found in natural food stores or organic farms.
  • If processed food somehow ends up in your home, read the label diligently and ensure the listed sugars, fats and carbohydrates don't exceed your daily allowance.

 

If these 5 foods are in your home or consumed throughout your day, following a diet and losing weight will be a losing battle.

These 5 foods will completely sabotage your efforts.

Get rid of these foods and within just a few weeks, you’ll see huge, noticeable difference in weight loss.

Give yourself the chance.

Toss these 5 foods into your garbage and never look back.
