“Diet” Foods That Will RUIN Your Diet! (Don’t Eat These!)

The Advertising Community has got us dieters by the strings….

If they label products as “diet” or “lite” products, we buy them to try to be healthier.

The labels are appealing and the promises – “30% less calories” or “no fat” or “5 grams of protein per serving” – sound really good.

Not so fast, my friend!

The problem is, to retain the same flavor as your full calorie/full fat items, the taste still needs to come from somewhere.

It usually shows up in the form of man-made, chemical sweeteners, and SALT. LOTS OF SALT.

Cross These Items Off Your Grocery List

The following are “diet” items that are NOT diet friendly! Cross these off your list and keep them off!

Fitness expert, Joel Marion, would certainly agree that these items are no-no’s now and forever!

These items WILL cause weight gain! Beware:

  • Diet soda
    Diet soda has artificial sweeteners, dyes, other unnatural chemicals, and, new studies show that those artificial sweeteners can be as addicting as cocaine! No thanks!
  • Smoothies
    Smoothies made with real fruit are definitely alright. Smoothies made with fattening sugar, ice cream, flavored yogurts, and artificial flavorings are not. Make these AT HOME so you know what goes into your drink!
  • Salad dressing
    Even lite salad dressing can be packed with sodium and sugar. Check your labels!
  • Artificial sweeteners
    Just like diet sodas, anything with artificial sugars can be as addicting as a drug!
  • Yogurt
    Flavored yogurts are often packed with artificial sweeteners and the flavor is artificial as well. Buy plain, Greek yogurt, which has protein a plenty, and add your own fresh fruit!
  • Baked chips
    Baked chips = sodium. Any chips = sodium. Slice up a sweet potato and toss it in the oven, add a sprinkle of cinnamon or Mrs. Dash and voila, crunchy and health(ier).
  • Granola
    Granola usually has a TON of sugar, especially the kind marketed towards kids.
  • Microwavable meals
    If a siren could go off that would signal the WORST diet failure, this is it! Microwavable meals, snacks, and EVEN the kind designed to be low fat/low cal (we wont name names here) is FULL of sodium. Check the labels and be scared.

Check the labels of the foods you eat. If you’re trading 1 gram of fat for 400 milligrams of sodium, it might not be worth it, in the long run.

Healthy shopping can be really tough, huh?

What Should I Eat Every Day?

If you like the Cabbage Soup Diet because you are told what to eat and when, then I have a powerful suggestion for you!

Instead of losing maybe 5lbs on the Cabbage Soup Diet in a week, wouldn’t you like to lose almost 25 pounds in 25 days instead?

With the Xtreme Fat Loss plan, you lose REAL fat but gain LEAN MUSCLE, making you look trim, healthy, and fit!!

5 Day Plan

This program comes with a 5 day plan that you repeat 5 times, making it 25 days long.  And guess what?

Each of the 5 day segments comes with a Cheat Day!  Yes, you can eat literally ANYTHING you want on this day!

I want to cheat my way thin! <– Get started now!

You NEED some healthy fats in your diet and you do NOT need a lot of sodium. Educate yourself (and your family) by checking labels and making the smartest choices possible.

Till next time,
Catherine
