10 Worst Foods for Belly Fat

Salad Dressing

No your eyes are not deceiving you. Now you know why your belly fat isn’t reducing even though you follow a salad-based diet. Believe it or not, this creamy concoction sometimes contains dairy products in its list of ingredients which, as mentioned before, the body finds difficult to digest due to its high fat content. If this isn’t enough to scare you, then the hundreds of unpronounceable ingredients on the back of salad dressing bottles should make you wary. Who knows what you are putting in your body! The best way to lose weight, and maintain your salad-based diet, is to avoid eating in restaurants. Don’t be fooled by the ‘low fat’ label of their ‘salads’. The dressing they use is rarely fat free.

Sodium (Salt)

This element, when combined with chlorine, gives rise to table salt, which is the culprit in many a greasy confectionaries. Believe it or not, excess amounts of this element leads to weight gain and even obesity, if not controlled. How? When sodium intake exceeds the amount of the same element in the body, it tends to build up within the kidneys and intestines. These organs then have to work extra hard to excrete this excess salt, leading to a buildup of extra fluid in the body. This ultimately, leads to increased blood pressure including extra weight gain from the water. So, if you want to lose weight, it’s best to regulate your sodium intake. Don’t eliminate it from your diet altogether!


Yes, Pasta! This delicious snack is the culprit behind many distended bellies because of its wheat-based ingredients. A high metabolic rate is essential to burn fat effectively and the wheat-based ingredients in pasta slow down the digestive process. This leads to bloating, which can also lead to weight gain. This product is recommended for the athletic type, as the low amount of fiber makes it a slow energizer. So, unless you are susceptible to daily marathons, it’s best to stay away from this oh-so-delicious snack.
