Here’s the magic formula for losing weight: you have to burn more calories than you take in.

You can do this by making cuts to your diet, but also by getting more exercise.

The problem that many of us ladies have is that we are tricked into thinking something is healthy only to find out that it’s getting in the way of successful weight loss.

If you are stuck and can’t get the number on the scale to budge, think about eliminating the following foods from your meal plan and see if that helps.

1. Say “No” to Certain Energy or Protein Bars

food, berry, fruit, plant, produce,

Some of these are decent choices, but you have to be careful how you’re eating them.

Some of these bars are meant to be meal replacement bars so if you eat them for a snack, then have a full meal a couple of hours later, you’re easily getting more calories than you should be.

Make sure you choose bars that are low in fat, calories and sugar so you don’t get in your own way.2

2. Skip the Multi- Grain Bread

Multi-grain sounds virtuous and healthy, doesn’t it?

Not so fast!

The truth is that multi-grain doesn’t mean a food is not packed with refined grains.

You need to be eating 100% whole grains because they are loaded with fiber to satisfy your appetite and have more nutrients than refined grains.

This goes for bread, crackers, cereal and pasta.

3. Frozen Meals Aren’t Good

A frozen dinner that’s sold as a diet aid is portion controlled, but that doesn’t always make it a good choice.

Many are loaded with salt, which isn’t healthy.

At the same time, many have such a small amount of food that you will only feel hungry a short time later, causing you to overeat and take in more calories than you should.

Have a real meal – you’ll be a lot more satisfied.
