Foods to AVOID if You Want to Lose Weight
- Salt-based Seasonings and Processed Foods:
Water gets attracted to sodium. So when you take sodium in large quantity, you will retain more fluid.
This could result in a sluggish feeling, big appearance or extra water weight.
- Surplus Carbohydrates Intake:
Body muscles save a type of carbohydrate called glycogen. With every gram of glycogen saved, the body also stores 3 grams of water.
- Bulky Raw Foods:
It might sound surprising, but it is true that a half cup of cooked carrots gives the exact same nutrient as a full cup of raw carrots.
But mind you, the half cup of cooked carrots takes much lesser space in your GI tract.
Your diet should consist more of cooked vegetables and a smaller proportion of unsweetened fruits and canned fruits in natural juice.Advertisment
By doing this, you will meet your necessary nutrient needs and yet still not get your GI tract expanded with extra food volume.
- Gassy Meals:
Some food adds more gas to your GI tract. Such food includes broccoli, Brussels, Cabbage, Legumes, onions, cauliflower(1).
- Chewing Gum:
Admit it; you probably never knew that you swallow air when chewing gum. All this air swallowed gets trapped in the GI tract and causes pressure, bloating and expanded belly.
