3 Foods You Should Never Eat If You Want A Flat Tummy

The three foods you should NEVER EAT!

Did you know if you over ate by just 100 calories per day you can gain as much as 5kg in a year?!
If you are after that lean and toned look with a flat tummy then make sure you NEVER eat the 3 foods below.

Well actually there are many more then 3 foods you should never eat but these are the 3 most common foods people are eating daily and they are sabotaging their results.

I know, as for over 10 years as a personal trainer running my own Weightloss and Body Transformation studio I have seen a lot of clients food diaries and monitored their results on a weekly basis.

These are the diaries where clients listed everything they ate in a week.

I would review their food choices, meal frequency; calories consumed, and then check their progress via the scales and body fat % measurements.

By reviewing the food diary I already knew what their result was going to be without any scales or measurement.

You see what you eat is 70-80% of your result

I would always tell clients that they can train with me twice a day, 6 days a week but if they get their nutrition wrong they are not going to get the best possible results for fatloss and toning.


Now that’s a lot of training for not the best result.

I would also tell them that instead of doing 6-10 hours of training per week they could cut down to just 3 –5 hours and get a better result if more attention was paid to what they ate.

So back to the 3 foods to never eat and why

Have you ever had those days when your stomach feels a lot smaller and flatter and your jeans fit more comfortably?

And then you have those days where you just feel really FAT, bloated, puffy and you cant wait to rip off pants as you are so uncomfortable!

This is really common in women of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels

The number one reason for this is usually contributed to what we ate and drank in the last 48 hours.

Certain foods often get stored as fat in our belly, retain water and cause us to bloat.

So to avoid a bloated belly that hoards stubborn tummy fat here are the 3 foods you should never eat

1.    White bread

White bread has less fibre and not a lot of nutritional value so its not very filling therefore causes us to overeat and is a simple carb
simple carbs = sugar = calories that then get stored in the tummy – your bodies preferred storage area for simple carbs incase there is ever a famine.

2.    Fruit juice – yes even the 100% stuff
Many fruit juice drinkers would never touch soft drink like Coke but without knowing it are drinking more calories from their daily juice then a can of Coke per day – Yes juice has no fat but is 100% sugar and sugar not burned off turns directly into belly fat. So if your trying to lose the tummy and eating right and working out – skip the juice to increase your results and stop the one-step forward one-step back routine.

3.    Sausages


Sausages are often made up of meat off cuts and by products (all the highly fatty bits that are not suitable to be sold as cuts at the butcher). Due to the Frankenstein of ingredients in a sausage in order to mask the taste and make them edible they need to contain a chemical cocktail of preservatives making them super high in sodium (salt) – a sure guarantee for a bloated belly and making digestion an uncomfortable process which also slows down your metabolic rate.

SO I guarantee if you cut out the above 3 foods you will see a flatter in stomach in as little as 3-5 days

 Nothing Less

    I am a tour guide and am on the road nearly 7 days a week and am working literally from 5 am until about 8.30 pm with driving, and touring and cooking for the customer. I dont really get any time to myself, nor do i get time to have 5 meals, nor do i get time to exercise. I like your idea of the 5 meal plan and on the few rare days i have off i try and do your workouts, but its not enough. Its extreamely hard when your driving 850 kms per day to not have things like sugar and coffee to help keep you awake, what would you recommend for food intake and exercise, remembering i have to cook for at least 13 other people at a time and its difficult to then cook separate meals for me. I cant live off protein shakes.
    your assistance would be appreciated.

      Hi Cindy Working those hours can be really tough I often did the same when I ran my personal training studio and I will be honest it was a real struggle to look after myself doing those hours. To make the most you can out of your situation think about taking an esky/cooler in the bus for you. A couple of meals in a day can be easy protein snakes or a shake (made the night before). For the other meals try pre cooking your meals the night before when you do the guests food- easy stuff like grilled protein and veges or salad with protein would be fast and healthy.

    I’m with Cindy, I work as full time Nurse and have returned back to studying full time. I go to work, to do an 8 hour shit and then it ends 16 hours lata- i’m always hungary as I go 2 days without sleep. I do exercise and eat relatively healthy, but I struggle to kick my sugar addiction. I can consume a bag of cookies and more a night. I don’t like the the whole calorie idea (as seriously who wants to live on 1200 calories)I’ve done it before and I went mental. I’m all up for not eating white bread- but hello I still want some bread.
