  • French Fries and Potato Chips – These are not healthy and are very high in calories as well plus it’s easy to eat way too many of these. But wait, by saying French fries and Potato chips are unhealthy this doesn’t mean that whole; boiled potatoes are healthy and helps you feel filled up.
  • Sugary Drinks & Packed Fruit Juices – Sugar sweetened beverages, like soda are one of the unhealthiest foods on planet and the fruit juices are highly processed and loaded with sugar as well, usually contains no fiber. So it is better to completely giving up on sugary drinks and best is to stick to whole fruit or fresh fruit juices. Sometimes you can have COKE ZERO as it has zero calories and don’t worry about Aspartame it is having as there is no evidence it can cause any problem.
  • Pastries, Cookies and Cakes – These are packed with unhealthy ingredients like added sugar, refined flour and may contain artificial trans fats. These have high calorie count , low on nutrients. So what to do while you crave for something sweet? Grab a “Dark chocolate “ instead before your workout.
  • Ice creams – Store bought ice creams is high in sugar, homemade ice cream using full fat yogurt, a fruit and less sugar is better alternative. But remember to track the potions, as it’s very easy to eat too much ice cream.

These all foods above are less Satiating, so you will feel need to eat more and more and that’s what adds up the Calorie Count.Typically it is the junk and fried food that cause the problems.
