FOODS TO AVOID DURING WEIGHT LOSS

Are you trying to lose weight? Or just simply trying to eat more healthy? Nobody's perfect when it comes to eating healthy 24-7. However, it is best to be informative and know which foods you should avoid during your weight loss journey. Remember - starvation does not equal weight loss! But rather, it is mostly about selecting healthy/fresh food choices.

Avoid Sugar & Artificial Sweeteners

  • Instead try stevia! It has 0 calories and safest bet for sugar replacement.
  • Raw honey is also a healthy alternative.

Avoid Salty Foods

  • Try your best to avoid salty foods during our teatox program.
  • Tiny bit of sea salt is okay.

Avoid Alcohol

  • Please do not drink alcohol during our teatox program. Give your liver some much needed break for the best results you deserve!

Avoid Dairy Products

  • Avoid anything that's based from cow's milk such as milk, cheese, cream cheese, ice cream, butter, etc.

Below are examples of dairy alternatives you can try:

  • Unsweetened Almond milk
  • Unsweetened Rice milk
  • Unsweetened Coconut milk
  • Dairy free ice cream (almond milk ice cream, rice milk ice cream, coconut milk ice cream)
  • Coconut butter
  • Try to use "good fats" oil instead of using butter for cooking. Examples are listed below under the fats section.

Exceptions:

  • Unsweetened natural yogurt is fine in moderation.

Avoid Red Meat

Instead try below:

  • Organic chicken breast
  • Fresh Fish (cod, mackerel, salmon, tuna, prawns, halibut, mackerel, trout)
  • Organic turkey

Avoid Refined Carbs & Starches

  • Avoid white rice, pasta, potatoes and white breads.

  • Bread
  • Flour Tortillas
  • Cookies
  • Cakes
  • Muffins

Instead try these below:

  • Brown rice
  • Millet
  • Oatmeal
  • Quinoa
  • Wild rice
  • Vegetables (except potatoes)

Avoid Sweets

  • Avoid candy bars, soda, diet soda, and other junk foods.
  • Instead eat fruit to beat your sweet cravings. Yummy and healthy!
  • Dark chocolates are okay to eat!

  • Candy bars

Eat more of "good fats"
