What Should I Avoid to Shed
By Carolyn Ekenstam
So what are some of the things besides sugars that you should
avoid? First there is alcohol and then some food groups. Alcohol always gets the
instant blame in these groups and it can be a major contender for the top of the
list. However, most people realize that alcohol is a huge "no-no" in the fight
to shed pounds fast. The focus here is on the food items you can avoid to help
cut the body fat out and actually to shed pounds fast.
The first thing you should know is don't worry, most likely you won't have to
stop eating everything you like in order to shed pounds. Sadly though, there are
several things most people like that should be at least drastically reduced. The
major problem areas in a nutshell are white flour items, and foods with refined
sugar. These go counter to your fight to shed pounds fast.
The white flour used to make food causes such items as bread to be quickly
digested into sugars. These extra sugars then overwhelm the body and are quickly
turned into glucose. The body suddenly has excess glucose and no need for extra
energy to burn it off which will not help you shed pounds fast or at all.
Keep in mind with white flour this entire process can happen in four to six
minutes and that will not help to lose body fat. The body has excess glucose and
thus excess energy and there is no sign of a need to burn it off anytime soon.
The result is the body decides to store these items. You can imagine where they
get stored. The body determines that the best storage area, and the most
accessible when it needs energy, is the belly and goes against your fight to
shed pounds fast. The body ends up stockpiling fat into the belly just in case
that energy is needed later and so you don't shed pounds, rather you gain them.
If white flour is converted into sugar and then the excess sugar becomes
glucose, you can imagine what happens with refined sugars. The process of
converting these into sugars is already done before it enters the body. The
result is excess sugar converted to glucose and you know from the above what
happens to that and where it is stored and that you are not going to win the
fight to shed pounds fast.
The foods that make up these two dangerous food lists can be extensive and go
counter to your fight to shed pounds. The list is endless, starting with bread,
of things made with white flour and so you don't lose body fat. Looking at the
things made with refined sugars gets a little closer to home for most people.
The list starts something like this: cookies, cake, candy bars, donuts, candy in
general, chocolate, and on it goes.
You do not have to drop all this food out of your diet, but with all things
remember the saying about drinking alcohol in moderation should also apply to
white flour items and refined sugar items (in moderation). The list seems to
keep expanding and not be geared to shed pounds fast. Each day is a struggle to
avoid these and try to lose body fat.
You might try some of the great weight loss programs to help you shed pounds
fast. Each of them works well when you work it. Stay consistent and you will win
in your goal to shed pounds.

avoids them and then she can shed pounds fast. She has struggled all her life
with her weight and is winning the battle and wants to share her knowledge.
