You might wonder, almost all the foods and drinks mentioned above are difficult to give up. Thus, you need to expect that foods and beverages that are either high in fat, carbohydrates, sodium or sugar can put more pounds on your body more than the others. Try to do the following:
Limit Fatty Foods
Indeed, you need fats so your body can properly function. On the other hand, more calories are equated with high fat foods compared to low fat. These foods may also lead to diseases aside from adding weight. That is why, it is vital to limit the intake of fats otherwise, add more veggies to your diet.
Lessen Sodium Intake
You also need to track your intake of sodium as this may lead to fluid retention aside from high blood pressure. Apparently, fluid retention may lessen your diet effort and will eventually give an added weight instead.
Check High-Calorie Drinks
Soda, energy drinks, fruit flavored beverages may add empty calories to your body. In addition, artificial sweeteners may slow down your metabolism, so replace these beverages with low calorie alternatives and never put out water from your list. Remember, pure green tea is a lot better than bottled ones.
A successful diet may not totally restrict you from your cravings but you need to control and limit them if you want to lose weight. Plan your meals, be mindful of your grocery list and enjoy healthy foods.
