9 Favorite Foods To Avoid For Weight Loss

6. Oil Popped And Microwaved Popcorn

Popcorn is a tasty and filling snack that’s perceived to be healthy. What complex carbohydrates gives you is energy and stamina, while it’s high fiber content makes you full. Natural popcorn is also rich in antioxidants. But know that commercial oil-popped popcorn served at the movie theater, or the microwaved variety at home, are unhealthy and loaded with fat, calories, and sodium. The best is naturally air-popped popcorn flavored with herbs.

5. Manufactured Salad Dressings

Eating salad is an excellent plan for losing weight. It’s known that fresh fruits and vegetables are staples for diets, as they’re loaded with antioxidants, nutrients, low calories, soluble fiber, and a variety of others such as vitamins. What most do however is continue to smother their valuable salad with commercial salad dressings to improve its taste. Most store bought dressings contain excess empty fat, sugar, and calories, because of the fatty mayonnaise, high fructose corn syrup, and soybean oil they contain. Instead, make your own.

4. Bacon Is Bad

Any type of processed meat such as bacon, is something you should generally avoid altogether, especially when wanting to lose weight. Just looking at a package of uncooked white fatty bacon at the store should be a deterrent, but usually isn’t. Bacon is rich in saturated fat along with nitrate and sodium. Excess saturated fat is extremely bad for your weight, while excess salt causes water retention and bloating.
