Six Foods To Avoid If You're Trying To Lose Weight

It's the second week of 2018 and here's hoping your new year's resolutions are still going strong.

For those who've decided that this year will be a battle with the bulge, a good place to start is looking over your diet.

While watching your kilojoule intake each day is a part of most health kicks, it's important to remember that there are some high-calorie foods that are full of nutrition and should still hold a place in your diet.

Instead, it more important to keep an eye on foods at the other end of the spectrum, which are just 'empty calories'.

This refers to foods which does supply energy, but has little nutritional value.

A good example is sugar, which racks up the calorie count but has no nutritional value.

London nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert told The Sun that there are six foods and drinks which should cut.

  1. Alcohol
  2. Soft drinks
  3. Lollies
  4. Chocolate
  5. Pies and pastries
  6. Sweetened fruit juice
