Foods To Avoid If You Want to Lose Belly Fat

In our last article, we mentioned that your diet plays a huge role in your fight against belly fat. Working out is important, no doubt. However, no matter how hard you exercise, you’d never make progress with a terrible diet.

Now there are thousands of articles on this topic. Therefore, it’ll be difficult to find a source you can trust. So, we decided to do it for you. We’ve compiled a list of foods to avoid if you want to lose belly fat.

Pastries, Cookies, And Cakes.

As innocuous as they seem, these “light” snacks are probably the number one food stopping you from losing belly fat. This is because processed baked goods are low in nutrients but very dense with calories. They are also very common!!!

We understand that it may be difficult to cut them out from your diet completely. However, here are a few things to note which we hope would strengthen your resolve.

  • The oil used in preparing snacks raises your cholesterol levels, which can be very dangerous for your heart.
  • The preservatives in many of these snacks can also increase your risk of cancer.

Cereal

High up on this list are cereals and any other food made from refined grains. Yes, think of your favorite cereal meals. They’re all guilty of aiding the accumulation of belly fat.

Why? They’re packed with sugar and are low in nutrients like carbohydrates and proteins. This means that when you eat them, you consume empty calories, which do nothing for you.

They’re also low in fiber which is meant to keep you full after eating. This is why you’re always hungry less than two hours after having a bowl of cereal. We both know, whenever you’re hungry, your first thought isn’t to reach for a nice big green, healthy cucumber. No! You reach for one of the unhealthy fast foods discussed above again!!!

Worse still, the synthetic vitamins and minerals on their nutritional labels mean nothing. Because of their synthetic nature, they are not easily absorbed by your body. In fact, in most cases, your body treats them as toxins and expels them.

White Bread

Another favorite food you may have to give up if you ever want to lose weight is white bread. White bread is made from processed flour which is unhealthy for several reasons.

The first thing is that they contain more sugar than wheat bread. Therefore, it makes them calorie bombs. In 2014, a study revealed that eating two slices (120 grams) of white bread per day will lead to a 40% greater risk of weight gain and obesity.

Apart from this, the excess sugars in white bread are an increased risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Therefore, we recommend you avoid or drastically reduce your intake of white bread.

Fries And Potato Chips

French fries and potato chips are high up on the list of foods to avoid if you want to shed abdominal fat. Thanks to the oils they’re fried in, they’re quite high in calories. Also, since they aren’t filling, it’s very easy to overeat them and consume your entire recommended daily caloric allowance in one sitting.

Prolonged consumption of fried foods increases the accumulation of visceral fat. Consequently, there is an increase in the risk of medical issues like stroke and heart disease.

Carbonated Drinks

If you avoid everything on this list apart from carbonated drinks, you’re still going never to lose belly fat. Yes, carbonated drinks are that bad.

Their sugar content (and caloric content) is off the charts, and worse still, the gas in them always leaves you feeling bloated afterward. Over time, this bloating feeling evolves from a mere feeling to an actual swelling of your belly indistinguishable from belly fat.

Conclusion

Our advice is simple. Cut out unhealthy foods and eat whole foods instead. We understand that giving up some of your favorite foods may be difficult. However, losing belly fat is a full-time job. Therefore, you must remain dedicated, and the rewards would far outweigh all your sacrifices in the end.
