Foods That Make You Fat

Posted on: August 20th, 2014 by Hayley James No Comments

Are you obsessed with losing weight? Every single pound that you lose makes a difference, that’s why you're very careful with what you eat – right?  Although it may be true that cutting down your food intake can help you lose unwanted pounds, there are a couple of foods you simply should give up and exclude from your diet plan. This could be the same foods that you need to give your body the nutrients, however they could be the same foods that make you fat. This is sad but true.

Here are the top foods that can be good for your body but can make you fat if eaten in excess.

Lean Meat

If you are trying to gain extra pounds, the protein in meat may be your best friend. However, if you are trying to lose weight, remember to eat meat in moderation. Meat is a good source of iron and protein to give you more energy to get through the day. Limit your portion size to two matchbox slices of lean meat once or twice a week.

Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is made of good fats and is a rich source of protein, however, if you want to lose weight you might want to stay away from peanut butter, but if you can’t stay away from it, you can limit your intake of it. 

Whole Milk

Dieticians often say that milk is a good substitute for those who are trying to lose weight. Indeed, it provides the body with nutrients that it needs while it does not provide the bad type of fat. However, consumption of whole milk can make you gain weight. Each glass is equal to 60 calories.

We have all heard the saying that we can eat whatever we want to if we eat in moderation.  So for successful weight loss perhaps the only thing that can save you from getting fat is to control the amount you consume. Some foods may be organic and natural but as long as you are eating more than you should, you will be in danger of gaining weight you’re not meant to gain.

Finding yourself in such a scenario can strip you off all the hope that you can ever lose all the excess weight you’ve got.

Exercising andstill NOT losing weight?

Exercising means burning all the extra calories in the body, that’s why it is very important in a weight loss program that you engage yourself in calorie-burning activities. However, most of those who engage in exercise over calculate the calories they have burned. Remember that exercising does not guarantee that you will lose all the extra weight, so if you still eat a lot after you exercise, there will be no weight loss. Sadly, you might be eating up all the calories you burned.

Eating Healthy? Not really.

Your eating habits can pretty much tell you the reason why you are overweight. Most of the weight problems that people have blame it on the lack of exercise when the truth is that their food intake in the main culprit for the problem. Do you think you are eating healthy? Well, nobody really admits that the diet that they keep in unhealthy. If you compare yourself to the diet that other people follow, you can pretty much say that yours in the healthier one. But is it the healthiest diet option? You know you can so much better.

Stop and think again why you are not losing weight and these two factors will tell you why. Once you have overcome the problem dealing with these two, you can get your ideal weight in a matter of months.
