You Can’t Lose Fat Eating These

You Can’t Lose Fat Eating These




These things are a nutritional disaster.

They are giant white balls of refined carbohydrates, packing in 350+ calories WITHOUT anything added to them.

They’ll cause you to hold onto weight like it’s stuck to your body with glue!

Typical bakery bagels are equal to about 5-6 pieces of bread. Add in the cream cheese, enjoy it with your morning latte, and you’re in trouble.


Salad Toppings

Salad can be considered the perfect food, when made with great ingredients.

But when that otherwise healthy salad is loaded with high-calorie dressings (~300 calories), fried chicken strips (350 calories), bacon (125 calories), cheese (225 calories), and croutons (125 calories), you’ve just turned what could have been a great meal into a disaster.

That is over a day’s worth of calories and fat!



I love a homemade smoothie as much as the next guy – but “healthy” smoothies often go incognito and can pack a serious dose of calories and sugar.

Jamba Juice offers one drink with over 770 calories and many others are well above 450 in the “power” size.

There is even a place called Smoothie King………they have smoothies with 2000 calories!!!  Wow!!

That’s healthy?

Pick the smallest size & enjoy it by drinking slowly.


Make your own – fresh fruit, some Greek yogurt, and a splash of juice or skim milk.

Now THAT can help you ultimately reach your goals.

Remember that 90/10 rule.

Stick to nutrition basics.

Maintain a nice balanced exercise routine and you’ll be well on your way to permanent success.

I spent a year of my life being treated for cancer- and thanks to a custom made “build up” smoothie called the Hulk, boasting near 1,00 calories before I added enough to it to get over 1,500, was able to continue my intense chemo and daily radiation schedule thanks to the wonderful world of Smoothie King.

Sure, those calories might not have fit “your” profile, but at the time, they certainly fit mine. Thankfully, today, that’s not my profile either!

Wow Alisa, CONGRATULATIONS FOR BEING CANCER FREE. I commend you for that. A high calorie smoothie with a high amount of antioxidants is a great way to nourish someone going through cancer and chemotherapy.
However for normal individuals that want to lose weight it’s a no no.
