High fiber snacks: There are many brands in the market that come with whole day’s fibre crammed to one serving. This is not good for the body and will only lead to upset stomach. You can instead opt for fibre rich veggie or fruit in a meal that will keep your digestive system maintain a daily routine.
Low fat foods: Don’t blindly believe the ads that claim ‘low fat’. For instance, yogurt, muffins that can be a challenge to those who are trying to cut down their weight.

Colas and other sweetened drinks: If you are trying to cut down your weight, then, no….don’t even go for diet colas. Sure, they look tempting enough to gulp it down, but it can ultimately lead to sugar cravings. You can always go for sparkling water or seltzer which is the best alternative. They are absolutely calorie free and will also make you feel full without making you crave for any sweets.
Alcohol: If you seriously want to lose weight, then stay away from alcohol. It is not the best option when it comes to shedding that extra fat simply because it contains no calories or nutrients but still consuming it can make you eat more than necessary.

Cereal: Many brands sell cereal in value size boxes that make people forget to take daily measuring of servings. This will make them tend to eat more and end up overweight. Research shows that there are more than 22% of people who consume cereal from larger packs leaving them obese.
