Surprising Metabolism Death Foods (5:43)

It’s really unsatisfying to stick to an exercise program, make the right diet changes, and still not see the results you want to see. Has that ever been you? It can be really frustrating.

The reason this can happen is even though you think you’re consuming a healthy food , you might have some hidden food in your diet that is ruining your weight loss efforts.

The foods that keep you from losing the last 10 pounds and keep you stuck at a plateau are what I call the metabolism death foods! The term may sound scary, and it can be. And the craziest thing about these foods is that they are often labeled as “health foods”.

Here are the five metabolism death foods you need to switch out of your diet to take your metabolism and fat burning potential to the next level!

Metabolism Death Foods

There are five main foods that can absolutely ruin your weight loss efforts. I call these the metabolism death foods. You will want to remove and replace these foods with healthy alternatives if you want to see quick results.

1. Fruit Juice - Contrary to popular belief, fat isn’t the first thing that will make you fat, it’s consuming too much sugar. Drinking fruit juice and consuming too much sugar will absolutely wreck your metabolism!

Fruit juice – including most apple, orange and grape juice – is basically chemically laden sugar water! I know something like apple juice sounds healthy, but some manufacturers turn apples into juice by adding in sugar, food coloring and flavorings. That is the apple juice you buy today.

One 8-ounce glass of fruit juice contains 30 grams of sugar where a soda contains 28 grams of sugar!

Also, you should avoid other forms of sugar, which can hide under names like: corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, juice concentrate, maltodextrin, raw sugar and brown sugar.

What to do instead: To replace fruit juice I recommend making homemade lemonade mixing real lemon juice, water and stevia. Kombucha is another great option as (nature’s sports drink!) is another great option!
