Are you working so hard on your health and diet but just not getting anywhere? I hear ya. It’s the most common woe of all dieters.
They are working hard on their approach and taking care to follow their diet exactly as planned. But yet, something is amiss. The scale just isn’t going down and they aren’t getting the results they were hoping for.
Often, the biggest problem is not their effort or motivation. The problem is that they are letting specific foods into their diet plan that are sabotaging their results. Those foods are designed to be fat loss foods but they really aren’t. Instead, they’re holding you back from success.
What are these foods? Let’s go over three foods that you need to cut out of your diet immediately.
Fruit Flavored Yogurts
Fruit flavored yogurts are a fav among-st most dieters but little do they know they’re digging into pint-sized sugar bombs each time they eat a tiny container. These delicious delights are definitely not what they appear to be.
Next time you’re picking out your favorite yogurt, double check on that sugar. You might just find yourself surprised to know there is much sugar in there as a candy bar, sometimes more.
Of course you can buy the sugar-free varieties but they taste like poop, and you’ll be taking in a number of unwanted artificial sweeteners, which can be just as bad for you.
Next up on the list of foods that you want to get out of your diet plan are any foods that are built to be ‘fat free’. These often say that they are fat free on the label and proud of it, but they are total garbage.
But ask yourself, if the fat is removed, what is added? Something had to be added otherwise these just wouldn’t taste good.
The answer to that is usually sugar. Sugar has been added to these foods and that’s what is creating the flavor in the product. It’s not a good trade and it won’t help you lose weight at all.
And, if you are trying to lose body fat, sugar is just as bad — if not worse — than fat is.

Finally, the last of the foods that you need to be careful about including in your diet plan are protein bars. These may seem like a great idea since they do contain protein and you know you need more of it.
But once again, you need to check that sugar. Most protein bars are upwards of 15 grams of sugar or more per bar. Some measure in as high as 30 or even 40 grams of sugar depending on the calorie content.
In actuality, these aren’t much more than a glorified candy bar. While you can buy a few bars that do keep the sugar content very low (five grams or less per bar), you do need to search for those. Be careful about buying these bars.
So there are three foods that you may be currently eating that could be causing you some issues. Are any of these in your diet?
