If you want to lose weight, it’s no surprise that you need to eat healthy foods in order to lose those unwanted pounds. Why? Because healthy foods are lower in calories and what you need to do when losing weight is to consume less calories. Along with exercising. But exercising will not matter if you’re taking in the same amount of calories. Now just because food is healthy does not mean it’s a license to eat twice as much. With that being said these 6 healthy foods may be sabotaging your weight loss goals.
6 Healthy Foods May Be Sabotaging Your Path To Getting The Physique You So Desire
1) Egg Whites
Eggs whites are indeed a healthy source of high-quality protein. In fact they’re the highest quality protein you can get your hands on. As with any weight loss regimen, you need a full compliment of nutrients. By not eating the egg yolks as well as the whites you’re missing out in that regard. If you’re missing nutrients in your diet you won’t lose weight that’s for sure.
2) Non or Low-Fat Frozen or Pre-Packaged TV Dinners
Fat is essential for allowing your body to absorb nutrients. By consuming non-fat or low-fat foods your body is absorbing less of the nutrients. Solution: Eat foods that contain fat, but in moderate portions.
3) Snacks That Are Loaded With Carbs
Crackers, pretzels, cereal offer very little nutritional value. It may satisfy your palate, but will not doing anything else for you. Opt for fresh fruits, vegetables, and some yogurt.
4) Peanut Butter
Peanut butter is full of healthy fats. But you need to be careful because peanut butter is high in calories and can add up fast. By eating spoonfuls of peanut butter you’ll be adding unnecessary calories and getting in the way of your weight loss goals. Stick with only eating 2 tablespoons at a time.
5) Energy Bars
Energy bars are nothing more than glorified candy bars. You’d be better off eating fruit, cottage cheese as a substitute for energy bars.
6) Yogurt With Fruit On The Bottom
This type of yogurt is loaded with sugar. Almost like a soft drink. A lot of sugar in your diet has the chance to make you gain weight rather than lose it.
