I am taking good care of my body. And with the routine care that I am doing, I always make sure that I eat my foods right. I also hit the gym every once in a while to keep my body fit and prevent myself from getting fat. But then, I always wondered, even if I am hitting the gym very often, I could still notice that I my belly still has body fats.
This is not supposed to be the case because I do exercise. What might be the cause? I really wondered about it a lot and then it hit me. I do eat a lot of foods, what if that food is not at all beneficial for weight loss?
And so, I tried to track down all of the food that I have been consuming. After I listed them all down, I opened my computer, researched about their calories and other information’s, and voila! There is some foods that can contribute to making you fat. It was horrible as I also love eating those foods.
If you want to know the foods that I have eaten, here are they:
- Breakfast Cereals
I know what you are thinking, but yes, breakfast cereals can truly contribute to your gaining weight. Even if you are buying the cereals which are labelled “healthy”, you better think again as this might be the worst weight gainer of all the cereal foods out there. Cereals have the most sugar and redefined carb which is the most fattening ingredients in existence.
- Agave Nectar
I love agave nectar as I have a knack in eating sweets. Still, even if agave nectar is labelled as a natural alternative to sugar, it is actually much worse. Sugar only contains 50% fructose and agave contains as much as 70-90%.
- Whole Wheat Bread
I do eat a lot of whole wheat bread if I am not fond in eating breakfast cereals but men, these are also fattening. Most of the whole wheat bread in the market are not at all made with whole grains. Be every cautious for most of them are just a marketing ploy. Whole wheat’s are not mostly made with actual whole grains. Same as white bread, it spikes blood sugar just as much.
Granola in the market are mostly processed with sugar and oil. If you would know, sugar added with oil is not at all healthy anymore.
- Low fat yogurt
For people who are wanting to lose weight by just consuming yogurt. Be warned. Instead of its promises in making you lose weight, it can actually contribute to your gaining weight. I learned this the hard way as I was also tricked into believing that with yogurt, I can also lose my weight. But when I check for my weight, there was a difference but that difference is that I gained more weight which is the most frustrating. Yes, yogurt should be healthy, but these good stuffs are often replaced with sugar which is the number contributor to weight gain.
Remember folks, if ever you are eating something that says that you could lose weight, do try to think again. This may just be an advertising for certain companies into tricking you to buy their product. Make it a habit to look at their ingredients to make sure. I also make this as my habit whenever I am buying my food.
