So, you’ve packed on a few pounds over the holiday season? No big deal. It’s definitely nothing a diet can’t fix! There are some foods, though, that you should absolutely avoid when embarking on your journey to washboard abs. These foods tend to pack on the pounds in the worst spots on your body, like your stomach. That’s why we have compiled a list of the worst foods for belly fat.
Stay away from potato chips, diet soda, refined carbs (foods that are white), French fries and fruit juice. I am sure you are looking at this list and thinking, “dang I had some of those things yesterday.” Yes, and that’s why it’s taking you centuries to shed the meat from your gut. Potato chips and French fries are extremely bad for you and laden with salt and saturated fat that stick to your abdomen. Diet soda and fruit juice are equally horrible because of the boatloads of sugar that are in them, which eventually turns into fat. Yuck! Last, but most definitely not least, refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, white crackers, and sugary cereals. are bound to give you that zero-pack you never wanted.
Heed my words of advice and stay away from these five foods, especially if you are aiming for that incredibly-toned beach bod by the time summer comes around.
