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.

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.

When I was 19, I lost my father, the only caretaker I'd known my entire life.

Growing up in Brooklyn, NY in the '80s, it was common for black children to be raised by drug-addicted parents. My mother abandoned my sister and I while succumbing to her addiction to crack cocaine. But my father, he stayed. And that man loved me fiercely for the years we had, while battling his own addiction to heroin. Despite his own pain, he took care of me. Losing him is still the worst pain I've ever felt in my life.
