1. White Bread
Most nutritionist and trainer know what you should know about white bread! White bread is one of the absolute worst foods you can eat because it is white flour that gets processed as sugar in the body. Skip the unhealthy white bread to save your waistline and better your health and swap this for whole grain bread. Whole grains are complex carbs you will feel full for longer and this will aid your weight loss goals.
2. Donuts and Other Processed Baked Goods
Move over muffin and donuts to say hello to a leaner body! Although baked goods may be convenient this is literally diet sabatoge. You will not see your trainer snacking in this because of the high sugar content and preservatives. Donuts can literally sit forever without altering the look, if it packaged at least. This is because of the preservatives. Sugar also increase inflammation in the body which cause weight gain and bloating. So follow my trainer tips and avoid donuts and other processed baked goods. If you really want it, create your own healthy version.
3. Buttered Popcorn
For countless years advocates on health have attempted to have bans put on food dyes due to cancer causing and hyperactivity in children. And this is most certainly what a trainer will avoid. Buttered popcorn has Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 in it which has been proven to promote cancer. So skip the buttered popcorn and air pop your own to add a dash of Himalaya salt. This will improve the nutritional quality and help you to avoid weight gain!
4. Frozen Dinners
Although frozen dinners are ultra-convenient, they are processed, loaded in preservatives and high in sodium. Instead of going the lazy, unhealthy route, create a vat of soup or several meals for the week. You can even freeze and defrost when ready for your next healthy meal. Save on money, calories
and avoid processed unhealthy foods!
Even though that pink colored frosting may look and taste great, if it comes from a tub on the store shelves, so seriously run the other way like a trainer would. Frosting is one of the few items in the grocery store that still has trans-fat. Trans-fat can sabotage your health and your waistline. So skip the store bought version and great your own healthy icing!
6. Artificial Sweeteners
When you browse the store shelves do you purchase the low calorie, artificial sweetener version or the regular sugar? These sweeteners are sweeter and can lead to increased sugar cravings. They also have been proven to increase neurological problems and the risk for cancer. Try some fruit to satisfy that sweet craving. Natural sweeteners like honey or real maple syrup are also great alternatives, in moderation, of course. Natural and the real deal is always better and this is the trainers live by plan. At least this is for me!
7. Processed Meats
Cold cuts are full of nitrites, chemical flavorings, dyes, and way too much sodium. Look for nitrite-free sausages and make your own sandwich meat by cooking some chicken or turkey and slicing thinly. If you are on scrunch for time; purchase a Rotisserie chicken remove the skin and slice for your sandwich!
With all these trainer tips, you know the foods you should most definitely avoid.
