Foods That Sabotage Weight Loss

Want to lose some of the fat around your belly? The best nutritional advice for trimming your waistline is cutting the "bad" carbs and unhealthy chemical additives from your diet. Bad carbs include French fries, doughnuts, cookies, pastries, soda, diet soda, chips and all refined grains. These refined foods spike blood sugar levels resulting in excess fat settling around your midsection. Instead, it is recommended that you eat good carbohydrates in moderation like fruits and whole grains, and eat the healthiest carbohydrates in abundance like vegetables and legumes.

There are also hidden "killers" lurking in foods that can sabotage your waistline indirectly by affecting the appetite control center of the brain thereby stimulating overeating and unhealthy cravings for bad carbohydrates. These foods include artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Sucralose Saccharin and Acesulfame K and chemical additives like high fructose corn syrup and monosodium glutamate (MSG). If your goal is a leaner waistline and healthier.
