Foods You Must Avoid for Weight Loss

Learn which three foods you must avoid if you want to lose weight successfully

The worst diet devastators are sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, and white flour, and they should be avoided at all costs if you want to lose weight successfully.

  • Sugar. Sugar is a diet devastator—and health destroyer—of epic proportions. It is creating the obesity epidemic in our nation. And it’s at the root of numerous other debilitating health conditions.
  • High-fructose corn syrup. High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a chemically altered sugar manufactured from cornstarch, but because it goes through extensive chemical tweaking, it is far from natural and decidedly unsafe. HFCS completely disrupts your body’s natural ability to tell when you’re satisfied and should stop eating, effectively increasing appetite and weight gain. Completely eliminating HFCS from your diet should be your goal, but be aware that can be a tall order. HFCS is added to hundreds of best-selling foods—so check labels carefully to avoid foods that contain this harmful sweetener.
  • White flour. White flour is another diet offender. It has no nutritional value and can cause blood sugar control problems. Fortunately, there are several healthy, tasty and readily available alternatives you can try, like oat flour, whole wheat flour, and rye flour.
