The 3 foods that stop you from losing weight
I know for me I often felt like I was doing everything right on my diet plan but still not seeing the results I wanted. But if I really sat back and thought about it I know what was stopping me. It was sneaking in bad foods that I shouldn’t have been eating. Are you in the same boat? Do you think you are doing everything right but the scale just isn’t going downward and you aren’t getting the results you want?
Often, the big problem is not you effort or motivation. The problem is that you are letting certain foods into your diet plan that are sabotaging your results. Often these 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 favorite among many dieters but little do they know they’re digging into pint-sized sugar bombs each time they eat a small container.
Next time you’re picking out your favorite yogurt, double check the sugar content. You might just find yourself surprised to know there are 15 or more grams of sugar per serving.
Of course you can purchase the sugar-free varieties, but then you’ll be taking in a number of unwanted artificial sweeteners, which can be just as bad for you.
Instead, opt for plain Greek yogurt. Flavor it yourself by adding a handful of fresh berries.
Next up on the list of foods that you want to get out of your diet plan are any products that are built to be ‘fat free’. These often state that they are fat free on the label and proud of it.
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 sugar. Sugar has often been added to these foods and is what is causing them to still taste appealing.
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 option since they do contain protein and you’re probably trying to get more protein into your day.
But once again, you need to check that sugar content. 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 chocolate 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?
