1. Soda& Sports Drinks
If you heart sugar and carbonation, chances are you indulge in a Diet Coke um, every day. knock it off. Sugar is empty calories, and calories equal a fine mesh of chub along your thighs. If you MUST have something carbonated, try a little sparkling water with a splash of fresh lime juice. As far as athletics beverages like Gatorade are concerned, skip it unless youre literally succumbing from your hangover. The sugar and carbs will add inches to your waistline unless youre like a legit Olympic athlete who needs the extra calories in order to complete a 5 hour workout.
Youre building your salad fat, and that isnt okay. Croutons are nothing but stale bread soaked in oil and spices, then cooked. We have long held that carbs are evil, and now youre ruining a perfectly good salad with these little monsters. OF COURSE theyre deliciousbut on your salad they do not belong if you want to lose some serious pounds. You can have like, one as a reward.
3. Bottled Salad Dressing.
Ive said it before, and Ill say it again: Buying salad dressing is incredibly lazy. Theyre usually pumped full of sugar, added fat, and calories. Buy a mason jar and mix up minced onion, minced garlic, extra virgin olive oil, Italian spice, and good balsamic. That shit will taste better than any calorie bomb youre squeezing out of a shelf stable bottle and you’ll look like a literal sous chef when you casually disclose to literally anyone who will listen that you “make your own salad dressing.”
4. Whipped Cream
I know you got the skinny latte with whip and youre impression pretty fetch right now, but you shouldnt. Whipped cream is fun for one-time sexuality role play and thats it. It shouldnt have a sacred space in your breakfast and caffeine routine because it a) literally adds no nutrients, b) literally adds calories, and c) will literally result in a sugar accident later. Keep this shit where it belongs: on a giant ice cream sundae which you can is precisely once every six months.
5. Pasta& White Rice
Again with the carbs. If youre trying to seriously falls the pounds but adore pasta and rice, get a measuring beaker. This is your new bff. Measure out beaker of either rice or pasta and boom, thats all you get. Theres nothing that nutritionally interesting or valuable to either of these thingsthey just fill you up and are easy to cook without totally fucking it up. Try use spinach or riced cauliflower in place of either of these.
Unless your smoothie is a combo of spinach, plain Greek yogurt, and a handful of strawberries, your smoothie is likely adding extra sugar and fat. Fun fact: a 32 oz smoothie can have 800 calories or more. Skip this shit or make it yourself. This runs double for unicorn frappuccinos, which are only magical in the sense that they will magically add 15 pounds to your body.
7. Combo Yogurts
What do we mean by combo yogurt? We mean yogurt you can either buy with fruit on the bottom, or cute receptacle attachments of nuts/ granola/ fruit/ preserves/ literally only cubes of sugar. If youre trying to be healthy, you need to march your ass to the store, get a contained of GREEK WHOLE FAT PLAIN YOGURT and thats fucking it. Building your yogurt into a dessert will attain your thighs into inflatable pool animals. Sugar content and additives have attained it shitty and worse for you than Count Chocula. If youre serious about losing weight, skip it.
