Are Not Top Ten Healthy Foods For Fat Loss

In this first part of my Top Ten Healthy Foods Article and my review of Testoprime that you can find here, I talk about what many of us perceive as healthy food for fat loss. Let’s get started.

Not Top Ten Healthy Foods #1 – Cereal

Dry box cereals will not help with fat loss. Cereal is processed food and is loaded with refined carbohydrates. With the combination of high carbohydrates, low fiber, and protein, your insulin levels will be elevated and less satisfying as far as hunger is concerned.

Of course, if you are substituting cereal for a breakfast option like a fast food place, you will see a change for the positive in your health. However, if you take that one step further and substitute the cereal with high fiber fruit and high protein like a protein drink, you will see positive changes not only in your health but also in your waistline.

If you just can not seem to get away from cereal in the morning, stick to a more natural option like oatmeal. Oatmeal has more natural ingredients and a higher fiber-to carbohydrate ratio. This will make you feel fuller, longer.

Not Top Ten Healthy Foods #2 – Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners are horrible for fat loss. They are not natural and completely foreign to our bodies. They will increase your hunger and if you are hungry all the time, it will be very hard to stick to your diet.

Not Top Ten Healthy Foods #3 – Sports Drinks

Besides the artificial sweeteners that are mentioned above, sports drinks contain a host of horrible ingredients that will tamper with your fat loss success. Some of these ingredients include…

  • High fructose corn syrup, linked to diabetes
  • Yellow dye number 10
  • Brominated vegetable oil, interferes with the metabolism of iodine
  • Oil of wood rosin.

Not Top Ten Healthy Foods #4 – Coffee

  • Coffee does a number of things that might hurt your fat loss goals such as…
  • coffee is an inflammatory food
  • coffee depletes minerals from your body
  • coffee raises blood pressure and cholesterol in some individuals.

Not Top Ten Healthy Foods #5 – Granola

I’m not sure why granola is considered a healthy food. It is loaded with sugar and fat. It is obviously not a great choice when you want to keep your waistline small. Granola and cereal are very similar. Today’s granola contains high fructose corn syrup. This ingredient is also found in soda which can lead to a fatty liver and diabetes.
