5 common foods that could be sabotaging your weight loss.
Let’s find out the 5 common foods that could be sabotaging your weight loss.
AS much as you’re trying to eat healthy, it is sometimes unfair that you are not losing the weight that you want to. You need to know that some of the healthy common foods that you may enjoy eating are packed with more calories than necessary therefore have to be consumed in moderation.
Here are some of the culprit foods;
As much as avocados are a very healthy food, actually one of nature’s superfoods, they are also high in fat and therefore packed with calories. You may just want to watch how much avocado you eat. In the initial stages of weight loss, try and consume no more than ¼ of an avocado on any day and limit it to only 3 times a week.
#2 Groundnuts (especially the sauce)
Although nuts are packed with heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin E and fiber but they are also very high in calories because they are very fatty too. So they too have to be consumed in moderation. I recommend that you avoid groundnut sauce completely in your initial stages of weight loss and later have it no more than twice a week. One handful of lightly roasted or raw nuts is actually recommended every other day.
#3 Olive Oil
Yes, that’s right, olive oil. The famous olive oil has long been promoted as a healthy food and the best form of oil to use. While it is true that it has some healthful benefits, it is still oil. Believe it or not, all oil whether healthy or not is 100% fat. Fat carries 9 calories per gram compared to 4 calories per gram from carbohydrates and protein. Be careful with olive oil as 2 tablespoons will give you 240 calories. Olive oil has 3 times as many calories as sugar. So please stay away from this oil, even on a salad.
Once again, another healthy food that can pack on the calories. Honey is known to have more calories than sugar. 1 teaspoon of honey has 22 calories compared to 1 teaspoon of sugar. Too much honey as a replacement of sugar could actually slow down your weight loss.
Alcohol too has loads of calories. 1 gram of alcohol has 7 calories compared to 1 gram of carbohydrates that has only 4 calories. Calories from alcohol are also more readily available for use and so calories from the diet may then be deemed to be excess to requirements and stored as fat, especially along the waistline.
