It is common that it is difficult to reach your ideal weight since the closer we are, the more difficult it becomes to lose those extra kilos.
Today we will mention which foods you should not consume after lunch so that the path to your ideal weight becomes easier for you.
Avoid processed and refined foods. In addition to being high in saturated fat, sugar, and salt, they are often low in nutrients and loaded with calories, making it difficult for us to control our weight.
Avoid eating white bread after lunch. The reason is because of its high glycemic index that can increase blood sugar and insulin levels. Also, due to its low fiber content, it does not calm satiety and increases appetite.
Ice cream is a very high carbohydrate food, and eating a lot of refined carbohydrates causes an accumulation of abdominal fat.
Salty snacks, while very popular, are high in saturated fat, refined carbohydrates, and salt. All this gives us a lot of calories and does not allow us to maintain our ideal weight.
Milk chocolate. Besides being high in sugar and containing a lot of fat, it can also cause sleep problems because it tends to contain caffeine. It's a much better option to go for dark chocolate, as it has a much lower amount of both sugar and fat.
