Are you trying to shed a few pounds before summer surfaces? There are a few foods that you need to steer clear from if you want to be successful. So, if you want to shed your winter layer of “warmth” before summer hits, avoid THESE foods!637480133

  1. Frosting: I know I know, it is just SO GOOD! But, it is actually so BAD. It is packed with trans fats, which raise bad cholesterol and can lead to belly fat and lower your levels of good cholesterol! Plus, it can lead to inflammation, which is totally not glamorous.
  2. Soda: We all know this one. Soda is something that should be out of your diet, whether you are trying to lose weight or not! One can of soda is like a can of water with 10 packs of sugar in it. For women, the recommended daily amount of sugar intake is 24 grams, and a soda is WAY more than that!
  3. Sugary cereal: I will be the first to admit that I love me a big bowl of Lucky Charms in the morning! But, sugary cereal can actually cause your skin to break out and become red because of the high gluten content! Yikes!

These are just a few of many not-so-good for you items that you need to nix if you are trying to melt away the pounds, but it is always good to start off small and work your way up! Good luck!
