Remember when you were growing up and your mother always told you not to hang around a certain crowd of people? Well, if you are trying to lose weight and get a flat stomach, then there is a certain crowd of food that you are going to have to stay away from.
Yes, unfortunately it's the truth -- there are foods out there that are eagerly waiting to sabotage your diet. They are sweet, salty, full of fat and ready to add pounds to the scale with each tasty bite. If you REALLY want a flat stomach this year and REALLY want to reach your weight loss goals, then you REALLY need to avoid certain foods for successful weight loss.
Avoiding these four foods will help you see your waistline shrink and make your efforts in the gym that much more worth it.
Food #1 to Avoid -- Chips
Chips are salty and full of fat -- two reasons why they taste SO good. Not to mention they make it SO easy to just grab a bag of chips out of the vending machine at work when you need a quick pick-me-up. However, chips are only going to sabotage your flat stomach diet. Taking chips out of your diet will take out unnecessary fat and salt that are only adding inches to your waistline.
Food #2 to Avoid -- White Flour
White flour has been refined SO many times during production that it loses all of its nutritional value. Recent research has shown that this type of flour can actually cause health problems, instead of avoiding them. Also note -- they like to hide the unhealthiness of this flour by calling it "enriched wheat flour".
