10 Foods You Should Eliminate From Your Diet If You're Trying To Lose Weight

Wellness

Weight loss is undoubtedly the most common New Year's Resolution. We try year-after-year to lose that 15 lbs we gained over the holidays but the scale refuses to budge and we deem weight loss an unsolved mystery.


If you're a part of those who find weight loss to be a complete conundrum, you can begin your journey by eliminating unhealthy foods that we love to indulge in, out of your diet. "While I'm not one for wanting people to eliminate food groups/food choices from your diet forever, it is certainly important for you to remove foods from your diet that will not fuel your body properly to lose weight," says food nutrition specialist and certified trainer Tasha Turnbull.

We've enlisted Tasha's help because this girl boss and owner of T2 Fitness Studio, in Virginia Beach, VA, knows firsthand what it takes to shed that weight because she lost 100 lbs. If weight loss is the goal, here are the foods she recommends cutting out of your diet:

Dairy is low carb and adding a slice of cheese to your favorite turkey burger hits the spot. However, dairy can cause bloating, issues with digestion, inflammation to the body, and water retention because of the sodium included in its chemical makeup. All of the side effects I mentioned about eating dairy are not all directed at weight loss. Nevertheless, dairy can play a huge role in how your waistline and skin appear, in addition to the numbers on the scale.

Can women have it all? Undoubtedly, there have been many attempts to answer this question over the years, most with a mournful no.
