You may try different diets, calorie counting, or increasing your workouts, but sometimes the lack of weight loss could be due to a hang up you’re not even aware of. Certain food and drinks may be low in calories or fat but aren’t providing any nutrients or energy
These foods sustain you for a moment, before leaving you hungry and looking for something else to consume. When you’re trying to shed weight with long-term results, it’s important to eat real, whole foods. To start, cut the following empty calorie items out of your diet.
1. Diet Soda
Dieters may be apt to slurp down diet soda, and why not? It has zero calories and the carbonation-lovers argue that the carbonation can make you feel full. Turns out that the country’s most obese people actually prefer diet soda and some report that the more diet sodas a person drinks the more weight they’ll gain. Why? The artificial sweeteners that keep diet soda calorie free actually confuse your body since the sweetener is unknown and artificial. When your body doesn’t know how many calories you’ve consumed, it will respond by craving more high-calorie foods.
2. Coffee Creamers
3. Salad Dressing
