  • Fruit smoothies, I see people drinking them when on a diet and it's all sugar and a few vitamins you can get elsewhere.

  • 1. EVERYTHING REFINED. Like white rice crackers. Zero nutrients, low protein, not worth it even if they are low calorie. Non-nutrient dense diets cause weight gain. Go for brown rice, whole grains (whole wheat, quinoa, rye, buckwheat, etc.) and legumes.

    2. OIL and SUGAR. Again, calorie dense, low to no nutrients. Both are heavily processed and stripped off the fiber and benefits of the unprocessed source. If you want to eat fats go for avocados and nuts.

    3. Dairy. And meat. Do your research (in depth).

    4. To manage weight like a pro: don’t have processed foods at home. Eat home cooked as much as possible. Your body craves what you feed it, so junk will make you want junk but healthy food will become something you crave if you eat it for long enough (at least a month). And the best hack: make 50% of your dish veggies and the other 50% starches and proteins (like baked sweet potato with smokey chickpeas and a tahini lemon dressing). Lots of protein, complex carbs (the good carbs), and fiber! Did you know that’s 97% of Americans don’t meet the minimum fiber intake? If you stop eating animal foods, know that cattle is injected B12, so supplement yourself with B12 to make up for that. And vegan or not, take vitamin D3 supplements (sunshine vitamin) because it’s has been shown in a 2010 study by the nutrition journal that’s 43% of adults (meat eaters and vegans alike) are deficient, which results in increased likelihood of depression, bone disorders and yes, even cancer. So just like too much sun sucks, too little is bad too. If you want good info on healthy/ unhealthy food and food benefits check nutritionfacts. org or the physicians committee for responsible medicine. Not for profit and not funded by big corporations. Run by very reputed doctors who specialize on diet and health. Peace✌️

  • Grain products.
    Pasta, bread, rice.
    Often times dubbed "light" meals, while in fact filled to the brim with empty calories that are worse for your blood sugar than straight up ice cream.
