In this article, you will find out List Of Foods To Avoid For Weight Loss.
Why not just count calories?
Do you think that when you lose weight, you can eat everything, but only in limited quantities? You are only partially right. If you carefully monitor your calorie intake and set a limit that you will not exceed, your weight may drop even when you eat unhealthy foods such as fried foods or sweets.
However, during such a diet you will be hungry more often and in addition you are at risk of malnutrition or digestive disorders. Therefore, healthy weight reduction is clearly not the case in this case. You may lose a few pounds with an improperly put together diet and a carefully calculated calorie volume, but you may still have excess fat in your body. This problem is especially dangerous if you do not have enough protein, do not exercise during weight loss, or do not have enough muscle mass.
Why health prevention and nutrition specialist Dr. Jason Fung does not recommend counting calories
Take weight loss as a new lifestyle
Weight loss is not about diets, but about the overall approach to life and a healthy lifestyle. A new way of compiling a diet should not be a punishment for you, but it should make you find your new philosophy of life in healthy eating. It is great to feel vital, in shape and well in your own body, and also to enjoy healthy and good food.
What foods should you avoid?
Refined sugar, artificial sweeteners, excess salt, and hardened fats can inhibit or completely block the weight loss process. Therefore, it is good to remove these foods from your diet and focus only on full and balanced meals.

If you cook or bake at home, you have a big advantage. You control exactly the composition of your meals and weight. You don’t have to be afraid to use some sugar or white flour here and there.
Potentially problematic cereals and cereal products
- White wheat flour – smooth, semi-coarse, coarse
- Pasta from white wheat flour
- Sweet wheat bread – donuts, cakes, biscuits, muffins, muffins, croissants, donuts, etc.
- Salty wheat bread – bread, rolls, buns, baguettes, tortillas, salted snails, etc.
- Sweetened cereals
- Other white flour products
- White rice
- Puffed rice sandwiches
- Starches – corn, wheat
According to one study, consuming two slices (120 g) of white bread a day is associated with a 40% higher risk of weight gain and obesity.
- Beet sugar
- Agave syrup
- Artificial sweeteners
- Biscuits, cakes, and desserts
- Ice cream
- White and milk chocolate
- Bought muesli, granola and energy bars
- Classic starch pudding
- Sweetened yogurts
- Purchased jams and compotes from regular sales networks
For sweets, it depends very much on the producer and the amount consumed. If you make compotes or jams at home, you know what you have with them and you eat them only occasionally, it’s definitely not a problem. The same goes for sweets and candies from proven organic stores.
Watch out for agave syrup
Agave syrup looks like a healthy substitute for classic sugar. However, it is a highly refined product with an extremely high fructose content. According to studies, high amounts of fructose from added sweeteners can have catastrophic health consequences. In fact, agave nectar has much more fructose than other sweeteners.
Another study states that while table sugar contains 50% fructose and corn syrup 55% fructose, agave syrup contains as much as 85% fructose.
- Vegetable chips
- Tortilla chips
Other studies have repeatedly shown that potato chips can contribute to higher weight gain than any other food.
- Potato pancakes
- Fried cheese
- Fried cauliflower, mushrooms, celery, etc.
- French fries
- Fish fingers
Foods high in saturated fat
- Fat cream
- Whipped cream spray
- Tartar sauce
- Salad dressing
- Fat meat – streaky pork and beef
- Fat cheeses – cream, processed and ripened cheeses
- Cold cuts – hams with a low percentage of meat, salami, sausages, hot dogs
- Canned meat
- Slaughterhouse delicacies
- Semi-finished products and instant foods
- The so-called cash
After eliminating unsuitable fats from your diet, you will enjoy not only weight loss, but also a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, the occurrence of which is alarming in modern times.
- Lemonades – sweetened and light
- Energy drinks
- Sweetened fruit juices
- Hard liquor
- Wine, beer (in quantities over a glass per day)
Watch out for pitfalls in restaurants and cafes
- Fast food – hamburger, fried chicken, onion rings, kebab, pizza
- Pancakes and pancakes
- Coffee with sugar, milk, whipped cream or ice cream
- Ice tea
- Home-made lemonade
What to watch with the amount?
Some foods are only suitable for healthy weight loss in reasonable amounts. The reason is the high content of fructose or fat in combination with excellent taste. That’s why it’s so easy for us to eat too much of these foods.
- Fresh fruit – eat 2 to 3 servings, preferably in the morning and in the morning
- Dried fruits – just a small handful a day
- Nuts and seeds
Beware of industrially processed foods
Highly processed foods are harmful to weight loss and overall health. They are usually full of unhealthy fats, white flour, additives, or added sugars. Research suggests that processed foods may be a major factor in the current epidemic of obesity and other health problems.
If you are not sure whether the food is suitable for you, read the composition label. However, be really careful when researching the composition. According to the study, many foods are labeled with healthy-sounding information on the front of the package. This can give you a false sense of confidence when making the purchase that you have made the right choice.
Make a new way of eating easier
Try to eat as much as possible at home and plan your meal in advance. This will avoid omitting one of the main courses, an unwanted attack on fast food that you pass on the way home from work, or evening raids on the refrigerator.
Add to that all enough sleep, at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, and get rid of stress. The results will not belong in coming.
