Are you putting 100% into your diet program, but feel like you’re getting zero results?
Many people find themselves in this pickle. They work hard, hold on to their diet strategy like a
bulldog, but fail to see the transformation they wanted. Hopes were high, but the scale just isn’t
Often, the problem is not eort or motivation. The issue is that they are incorporating certain
foods into their diet plan that are actually not diet foods at all. The diet industry is big business,
and unfortunately, many companies market their products as healthy, even though they are
What are these foods? Here are three problemfoods you need to cut from your diet immediately.
FRUIT FLAVORED YOGURTS
Fruit avored yogurts are a favorite among many dieters, but many fail to see them for what they
are: pint-sized sugar bombs. Individual yogurt packs have gotten unhealthier and unhealthier,
while their reputation as a go-to diet food has regrettably survived.
Next time you’re picking out your favorite yogurt, double check the sugar content. You might be
surprised to nd there are 15+ grams of sugar per serving.
Of course, you can purchase the sugar-free varieties, but then you’ll be consuming unwanted articial sweeteners, which can be just as bad for you. Instead, opt for plain Greek yogurt.Flavor it yourself by adding a handful of fresh berries
Beware of any product marketed as ‘fat-free’. These products proudly label themselves as fatfree,
and that very well may be true. But ask yourself, if the fat is removed, what has been added? Time and again, the fat content has been substituted with something just as undesirable
If you are trying to lose body fat, sugar is just as bad — if not worse — than fat is.
The last problem food to be wary of is the protein bar, despite its prevalence in many diet programs and meal plans. These may seem like a great option because they contain protein, butonce again you have to look a little closer.
Check that sugar content. Most protein bars have upwards of 15 grams of sugar per bar.
Some contain 30 and even 40 grams
In actuality, these are gloried chocolate bars. While you can buy a few bars with very low sugar
content (vegrams or less per bar), these will require a little searching.
Sadly, many dieters are blissfully unaware of these three problem foods.
