  1. Sugar waters

Dieting people try to avoid sugar in their meals. But not all sugar foods are unhealthy. Speaking about sugar drinks, they are really harmful for your teeth and your diet. You usually count calories in your food but don’t count them in your drinks. Too much sugar causes diabetes and heart diseases.

INSTEAD:

You should drink clean fresh water with a slice of lemon. Also, you can drink teas and coffee.

  1. Pizzas

Pizza is really one of the most popular foods around the world. Home-made pizza is tasty and made of fresh natural ingredients. But if you buy pizza in the shop, you can’t check if it is made of healthy ingredients. Is the meat fresh? Are there any vegetables in your pizza?

INSTEAD:

You can find a restaurant where you can pick ingredients and watch the process of cooking. It would be great! Otherwise, cook your pizza at home!

  1. White buns, bread

It is not a secret that most of the breads you buy in the shop are not healthy, of course, if you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and even between meals. The point is, bread is made of refined wheat and this is not healthy ingredient for your blood and digestion.
