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".
Food #3 to Avoid -- Cheese
Cheese is DELICIOUS -- especially when you add it to your sandwich or other snacks. However, think of adding cheese to your meals like adding extra fat to your hips. Yup. I know its not a great picture, but cheese tastes so good because it's full of fat. If you are trying to get a flat stomach, you need to make sure you avoid this fatty food.
Food #4 to Avoid -- Fatty Meats
Protein is extremely important for the body, and meat is the best source of protein for your body. However, when trying to lose weight it is important to take extra fats out of your diets. Avoiding fatty meats, such as beef and pork, is a very simple way to do this. The less fat you have in your diet, the less fat you have on your body.
So, next time you hit the grocery store, make sure these four foods don't end up in your cart. Staying away from these foods will help you reach your weight loss goals faster -- by making sure you aren't eating extra calories or fat that require you to spend more time in the gym!
