What You Need to Avoid if You Want to Lose Weight?
What are the foods that need to be avoided?
The salt content in sausages is also quite high and we all know what a high salt content can do to your health. And what is it that you do when you have bought these so-called meat sausages. You take them home, put on the frying pan and fry the sausages, adding to the calories and fat content that they already contain.
So, stay away from those sausages that do not give you what they promise. If you do feel that you can permit yourself an occasional meal of sausages, check first if the label assures you of higher meat content and less of the harmful additives.
Potato chips and French fries are the other very common food that you need to steer clear. They are very rich in calories and fat and should cause you more concern if you are calorie conscious. It is unfortunately also true that almost all households would have a fair stock of packet of potato chips, especially if there are youngsters in the family.
Chips and French fries are very tasty but the saturated fat and salt content is way too high for it to be a healthy food.
Scientists warn against the heating of starch foods like potatoes as this produces acrylamide which is considered carcinogenic. French fries and potato chips will produce this chemical more than other foods. So, you must find an alternative to French fries and potato chips.
And how can we not refer to pastries as detrimental to our health? They contain transfats and a lot of calories that can only add to your waistline. Trans fats increase the risk of heart disease because they lower the good cholesterol and increase the bad cholesterol. You can, of course, safeguard yourself by enjoying your Quiche, by eating the filling that has eggs, bacon, and broccoli and leave the pastry on the plate. But is not that a waste of food? If you want to lose weight you will have to avoid eating the pastry.
If it is weight loss that you are after, do not stress on reducing your calories only. You should also avoid the foods mentioned above. You can eat the same amount of calories in apples if that’s what you like, but counting your calories and consuming pastries, French fries and sausages is just not the way to go. The apples will not add a thing to your waistline, but the other foods will.
