It’s annoying when while on a diet, the only foods you’d like to eat are those that are the complete no-no on your list. Life is not fair.However, continuing to eat these foods would totally defeat the purpose of you trying to lose all that extra fat. In the end, focus and discipline trumps temptation. It has too, there is no other way. And if you think there is a shortcut to weight loss, you are sadly mistaken. The only things that will make you succeed are your determination to exercise—and stirring clear of these three foods, which are your “diet doom.”
Need we say more? The amount of calories and fat you get from the fried items from the fast food menu is enough to last you the ENTIRE day! It’s alarming actually, as it’s just designed to make you want to just keep coming back for more—without really giving you nutritional benefits, except carbohydrates. And how much carbo do you need anyway? You’re trying to lose weight!
So the next time you’re taken over with the desire to eat that huge cheeseburger with five patties and twenty slices of cheese—think of how far you’ve come to throw it all way because of just one burger. Really.
Donuts or any other baked goods (that are processed)Look at that sugary treat. It’s calling you. They come in different colors, too. Take a bite. Oh, so sweet, so soft, so yummy.
Ok, sorry. Didn’t mean to stimulate your imagination—just trying to make a point. Ok the point is that each bite you take of these processed goods is high in preservatives AND sugar content. They aren’t easy to digest either. Why would you even let your digestive system suffer for a few blissful chews right? Stay away from them, at all costs. It may even be the reason why you’re having skin problems. So stay away from them.
Soda and other sugary drinks
Did you know that a single can of soda is like drinking a glass of water with about ten heapings of sugar mixed into it?And that won’t even taste great. So your best bet is to stick with water. If you must have flavor, then try putting in a few slices of lemon, or any other fresh fruit, for that matter. If you think it’s boring, try burning all those calories from drinking one glass of soda. You might still be in the gym long after it they’re already closed for the day (if they let you stay).
If you must have a dose of these, then fine. Have your cheat day; it’s a very good excuse to satisfy your cravings. But once you’re back on fight form, don’t try to even be in the same room as any of these items. Don’t worry; you’ll thank yourself one day for it.
