There are many articles written about what specific foods you should eat to lose weight and/or improve your health. There is truth to all of that, and I do like the idea that by filling your plate with the right foods, there will be less room for the unhealthy ones.
But I want to take a different angle and share with you what I believe are the top 5 foods/ingredients to avoid or reduce for the fastest weight reduction and health improvement.
Sugar: Eating less sugar will almost automatically cause weight loss and reduce bloating. Make sure to still get a few servings of fruits each day, but reducing processed sugar will have fast results.
Enriched Wheat: By avoiding this, you will dramatically reduce your intake of processed carbs, which again will reduce bloating, water retention, and body fat.
Fake sugar: Even though these contain zero calories, they increase your sweet tooth and many studies suggest that they have long term negative health issues. Sucralose will be the most common fake sugar, but if something tastes sweet and there is zero or very low sugar, it either has a fake sugar or is sweetened with a more natural zero calorie replacement like Stevia.
Low fat: Anything that should naturally be higher in fat should stay in its natural form. Fat doesn’t make you fat and fat can fill you up, help with hormone levels, and can keep blood sugar levels stable.
Vegetable oils: Because it has the word “vegetable” doesn’t mean it’s healthy, lol. In fact, these fats are very unstable, creating a lot of free radicals in our body and are just really bad for us. They are highly processed. Staying away from vegetable oils will naturally reduce your enriched wheat and sugar intake, because they almost always all come together.
If you look at this list, it can pretty much be summed up by not eating processed food. The more man has played with it, the worse it is for us.
I know this list is easy to look at but hard to actually implement.
Because this “food” is convenient, tastes amazing and is everywhere we turn. Our society celebrates it and consumes it without giving it a second thought.
