It’s quite common to lose weight and gain it back again. This can be very discouraging and some times people give up…
Only to try again at another time. It’s actually very important to lose that belly and have a flat stomach.
Studies show that having a belly can cause a variety of healthy problems.
And probably the most common reason to lose belly fat is to fit better into clothes and have confidence in public.
I know I don’t feel as confident when I’m overweight and it just feels awful too.
In this post, I’ll show you what not to eat when you want to lose belly fat and my top ten list of foods you absolutely must avoid or only eat in moderation.
Foods To Avoid When You Want To Lose Belly Fat
One of the most commonly eaten foods on this list is diary. It has more calories than you might think.
Yogurt just a 6 oz container of full fat yogurt has 105 calories.
One serving of whole milk has 146 calories
Just one slice of Swiss cheese has 100 calories
Although Dairy Is A healthy Source Of Protein And Healthy Fat The Key Is Moderation
Just about everyone loves sugar it’s in a lot of our favorite snacks. I know I sometimes didn’t pay much attention to the calories I was consuming.
I eventually had to massively reduce my intake of sugar all together in order to get rid of the belly fat.
In order to contain my sweet tooth I found alternatives that were healthier such as honey, maple syrup and sweeteners such as Splenda and Xylitol.
#3 Fizzy Drinks Or Sodas
Drinking your calories can be a bad habit that can quickly cause you to gain a lot of weight in short amount of time.
One soda can have as much as 175 calories
Imagine some people have several sodas a day…
You can see how the calories would add up quickly over the course of a day.
If that’s not bad enough sodas give you gas, raise blood pressure, and cause your heart rate to increase especially if it’s a caffeinated soda.
Wait! Isn’t juice good for you? Well not if you want to get rid of that belly fat.
The store bought concentrated juice is loaded with calories and sugar.
Even freshly squeezed juice can be very high in calorie content.
I know they taste good, but try to avoid juice for now. If you must, make sure it is freshly squeezed over store bought.Eat Well, Slim Down Recipe Book – Ebook
#5 White Flours
I was afraid you were gonna say that…
You mean no cookies, breads, or cakes? No… Sorry
What about pastries or pasta… Negative
This one hurt me the most because it’s my favorite on the list.
But when your goal is to lose belly fat it’s best to stick with whole gains.
This is another choice that you should only have in moderation.
Potatoes are actually healthy with a lot nutrients, but definitely turn bad when they are deep fried such as french fries.
#7 Snacks ( This Includes Energy Bars)
Avoid snacks such as energy or snack bars. They are disguised as a healthy option, but when you need to lose that belly you should avoid them.
Instead you can have mixed nuts, apple slices, or even dark chocolate and almonds.
#8 Salad Dressing
Yikes! So what can I put on my salad?
One alternative that is better than it sounds is to squeeze lemon juice and about a tea spoon of olive oil with pepper and sea salt.
There are several low calorie salad dressings available at your grocery store. The taste is still ok to good…
You’re sure to find one you like!
#9 Processed Meat
No! Not the Bacon… Anything but that!
Yes, unfortunately bacon is in this category. This reason for this is that processed meat is high is saturated fat.
Instead you’ll need to eat grilled chicken and fish..
It just got real…Oh yes it did!
Again you don’t have to avoid drinking alcohol completely, but limit yourself to no more than one.
The experts actually recommend a small glass of red wine before bed.
I’ve been doing this for years and it also helps me relax and sleep better too.
