If you've recently decided on starting weight loss program, signing up for a yoga class or gym memberships can be a great way to burn some calories. However, you'll also need to manage what you eat if you want to achieve weight loss. To make sure you're not accidentally packing on more pounds, here are a few foods that can ruin your weight loss goals.
You might think that with all the fruit contained in a smoothie, it would actually be good for your diet – and in some cases this might be true. However, many smoothies are made with ice cream, milk or yogurt, which can be high in fat and calories. Look for varieties made with fresh fruit and juice instead.
When it comes to breakfast, many people enjoy a big plate of eggs to go along with their toast, bacon and hash browns. And while there are plenty of nutritional advantages to eating eggs, consuming the delicious yolk at the center means added calories and fat, which are bad for your weight loss plans and heart.
Eating a fresh sandwich can be a great way to get vegetables, protein, dairy and whole grains in one meal, but you should beware of eating Italian sandwiches. While certainly tasty, the salted and spiced meats used in these can be filled with fat.
