Your breakfast bar could be causing your belly fat! Turns out most of them contain a lot of sugar and soy. They are common culprits to excess belly fat and bloating. Another bad one: processed meat! That includes salami, hot dogs and bacon!!! Really surprising is that JUICE contributes to belly fat too. They are basically concentrated liquid sugar in the form of fructose.
Obvious no-nos that cause excess stomach fat are fried foods and sugary items. But there are some surprises that should also be avoided.
Nutritionist and food author, Lee Holmes, has deemed the surprising foods most likely contributing to belly fat:
1.Breakfast bars: Many common "healthy" snack bars include excess sugars and protein isolate, which is derived from soybeans.
2.Processed meat: Ok, so maybe this one isn’t too surprising. The pro-inflammatory fats in salami, bacon and other processed meats, have corn, soybean and sunflower oils. Those oils are difficult to digest.
3.FRUIT JUICE:Fruit juices can contain a large amount of sugar in the form of fructose, even unsweetened fruit juice. Think of it this way…Would you sit down and eat for apples in a row our six to eight oranges? Of course not. But that is what you are getting in one glass of juice but without the healthy fiber that made you crave it in the first place!
4.Alcohol:Again not all that surprising. Excess alcohol can contribute to inflammation and excess belly fat around the middle, particularly in men.
5.Dairy: Sadly, cheese and dairy foods are also difficult for many people to digest. Undigested lactose becomes a food for bad bacteria in the gut and an imbalance of unhealthy bacteria can lead to gain in visceral fat.
