If you are in a weight loss or fat burning program, then it is only natural to avoid food that turn to fats. After spending our time working out in the gym and doing cardio to burn more fats, we should not allow our food intake to waste our efforts. To burn fat, we should avoid food that turn to fats easily.
Fat filled foods usually have few things in common, they are
- High in total calories
- High in sodium
- High in total fats
- High in refined sugar
- High in unhealthy saturated and trans fats
- Low in nutritional value
- Flavor enhancer, chemicals
- Artificial colors and flavors
Topping the list is ICE CREAM! Loaded with fat, sugar and way more calories than anyone needs, as well as the artificial colors, flavors, preservative etc. One cup contains at least 350 calories and 20 grams of saturated fats.
Fried foods are next. They are high in calories and mostly fat. Frying destroys essential fatty acids. The process of frying converts the already chemically altered trans fats into artery clogging, health destroying funny fats.
Donuts and pastries contains refined sugar and saturated fats. Donuts also contain chemical agents designed to keep them soft. It is like a chemical loaded cocktail of fats, sugars and calories.
White sugar, candy, chocolate and sweets. These refined carbs are incredibly calorie dense, and is easy for you to eat too many calories. Sugar contain empty calories, no vitamins, no minerals, no fiber. Sugar wreak havoc to your blood sugar levels, prevent stored fats from being release as energy and increase fat storage.
Soda. They are mostly water with added sucrose and high fructose corn syrup. So they’re basically the same as sugar except that since its in liquid form, we tend to add extra calories to the food we normally eat by drinking them.
Bacon and sausage are one of the worst food you could possbly eat. One strip of bacon has 130 calories and 13 grams of fat.
White bread is a refined carbohydrate with no nutritional value. It is treated in the body the same way as white sugar. Eating more than four slice of white bread a day doubles your risk of developing kidney cancer. It elevates the blood sugar and insulin levels in your body, which may spur the growth of cancer cells.
Potato chips and nachos contain far too high sodium content that makes them almost dangerous.
Hotdog is like a fake food, they consist of some meat mashed up with fillers, stabilizers, sodium, preservatives, artificial colors and artificial flavors. Hamburgers are made from some of the fattiest meat available. So these should be avoided too.
