Sometimes when you want to know what you should eat it helps to know what you shouldn’t eat. You can then narrow things down by the process of elimination. This article will reveal the absolute worst foods to eat when trying to lose weight.
Here they are in no particular order:
Doughnuts contain a deadly combination of saturated fat and refined sugar. These are the 2 worst things you should be eating when trying to lose weight. Worse still is eating them together!
Just 1 glazed doughnut can contain 200 calories and 12 grams of fat! You can have a large bowl of oatmeal instead which is much better for you.
I call this food heart attack on a plate. Bacon consists of salt and fat with plenty of calories. And most of those calories are coming from fat.
Bacon also has nitrates that can cause cancer. Turkey or chicken bacon is hardly a better choice because all of the meat is processed. My advice would be to avoid this food like the plague.
3. Fast Food Hamburgers
These puppies will often contain the highest amount of calories you can find in a food. Over half of your daily amount of calories can be eaten with just one burger from a fast food restaurant.
To make matters worse is there is still the fries and soda that go along with it. Throw in a dessert like apple pie and you’re finished.
4. Potato Chips
Potato Chips are full of trans fats, sodium, and preservatives. They are the furthest thing from real potatoes and are totally bad for you.
Too much sodium is really bad if you have high blood pressure. A better alternative would be a baked potato. You can eat it with salsa or light butter sprinkles.
