Diet Always Failed? "Blame" These 4 Foods

Losing weight does require a business that is often frustrating.

We may already 'get rid' of heavy foods that potentially make weight loss difficult, white rice for example.

But, we may be unaware to get rid of foods that are inhibiting in diet success.

Here are four types of food items that can thwart the diet quickly, and what to eat as a replacement.

Foods containing emulsifiers

Emulsifiers are widely used in processed foods, such as ice cream, mayonnaise, margarine, chocolate, bakery products, and sausages.

Emulsifiers are chemicals that help incorporate ingredients that can not be mixed properly (eg oil and water).

Emulsifiers also make the food look attractive and durable.

Research conducted on mice shows, when put into the body, emulsifiers can alter intestinal bacteria, trigger inflammation, and increase the risk of obesity, as well as heart disease.

Common emulsifiers include: lecithin, mono and di-glycerides, polyglycerol esters, sorbitan esters, PG esters, and sugar esters.

Replace foods containing emulsifiers with unprocessed foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, legumes, nuts and seeds.

Food with MSG

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a very addictive flavor enhancer commonly used in fast food, instant noodles, processed meats, and many other foods.

A study in China shows, eating foods that MSG regularly can increase weight, and trigger many other health problems.

In the study, respondents who used MSG most in their cooking, were almost more than three times as likely to be overweight, than those who did not.

Even scary, the increased risk of obesity does not depend on physical activity and total calories consumed.

Other MSG related conditions include fibromyalgia, fatty liver and liver toxicity, high blood sugar, asthma, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, neurological brain disorders, indigestion, and metabolic syndrome.

MSG is usually disguised under a different name.

However, keywords that may indicate its presence are glutamate, whatever is hydrolyzed, yeast extract, gelatin, soy protein, soy or whey protein, soy sauce, whatever "protein", and calcium or sodium caseinate.

To replace MSG, we can search for minimal food and seasoned with simple spices.

Even better, add red peppers to increase extra metabolism.

Artificial sweeteners

Many people use sugar substitutes with zero calorie sweeteners as a means of weight loss. But this sweetener actually has the opposite effect.

In the study, rats fed artificial sweeteners saccharin, sucralose or aspartame developed glucose intolerance, metabolic conditions associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes.

In a follow-up study of seven human volunteers, four became glucose intolerant after taking the recommended maximum saccharin dose in just one week.

Eating too much ordinary sugar is also not good. So we can get a sweet taste with whole fruit, cinnamon, peanut butter, or sweet potato.

Low fat products

Most of us tend to assume that foods labeled 'low in fat' are good for weight loss.

But in a study published in the journal Appetite, the researchers analyzed nutritional information for nearly 6,000 meals in Canada.

The facts are found, overall, products with low fat claims do not significantly decrease calories.

In fact, low-fat foods can trigger people to consume extra calories.

Instead, instead of avoiding fat, you should eat good fats like omega-3s found in salmon, tuna, mackerel and other cold water fish.
