Six Foods That Cause Weight Gain

Losing weight is never easy; it requires consistent hard work at the gym and at home. Sadly, a lot of people who have been working hard are not getting as optimal of results as they would have hoped for. One of the major reasons why so many people who are working out hard but are only getting a sliver of the results they should be getting is because of their diet. The kind of food you eat determines to a large extent if you are going to gain weight or lose weight. Any sort of increased weight gain can possibly cause health effects including heart disease, blood pressure, sexual inactivity, ED, stress, and many more.

In this article, we are going to be looking at six different foods that will cause you to gain weight quickly. If you can try and avoid the foods that will be listed in this article, you will be one step closer to achieving your fitness/health goals.

  1.     French fries

Potato is an excellent food source when it is boiled, baked, or roasted. But when fried it becomes very high in calories and trans fat. One thing about French fries is that you can eat a lot of them easily, so make sure to be conscious of your portions.

  1.     Sugary Drinks

Sweetened drinks are something you should limit or avoid totally if you really want to lose weight or don’t want to gain weight. One major problem with sugary drinks is that they contain empty calories, so the brain does not really register them as it does with solid food. What you should consider is to replace your sugary drinks with health drinks like a protein shake.

  1.     White bread

The reason why white bread can make you gain weight is that it contains a lot of sugar and is highly refined. One study that was conducted not too long ago shows that eating as little as two slices of white bread can lead to obesity.

If you really love bread, there are other healthier bread options you should consider. One of these alternatives is wheat bread.

One thing you need to keep at the back of your mind is that bread is made from fine flour. The problem with fine flour is that it can spike up your blood sugar level which will make you eat more than you normally would.

  1.     Candy bars

If you want to see results from your hard work at the gym or you don’t want to gain weight, you should avoid unhealthy candy bars. One of the major constituents of a candy bar is sugar.

Candy is very high in calories but low in nutrients. In fact, an average size chocolate bar can contain up to 300 calories.

  1.     Fruit juice

Most fruit juice on the market today is loaded with sugar and is high in calories. What you should consider is to avoid taking large quantities of fruit juice and start eating whole fruits. The fibers in whole fruits are what makes them excellent, especially when it comes to weight loss and general health.

  1.     Cake and pastries

These are made with refined flour and sugar. The major problem with pastries is that they contain trans fat which has been linked to a lot of serious health conditions.

Final note

If you can try and avoid the six foods that are stated in this article, you will be one step closer to achieving your fitness/health goals. But of course, these are not the only unhealthy foods out there. Do some research and find out more food that can make you gain weight fast.

Top Five Kitchen Products to Improve Libido

An aphrodisiac is defined as a food, drink, or drug that stimulates sexual desire. It sounds like you’d have to search far and wide for something with such magical properties, but the fact is aphrodisiacs can be found closer than you think, even in your kitchen. So, here’s some items from the culinary quarter of your house that apart from spicing up food can spice up your life!

Broccoli

This vegetable is high in vitamin C and increases blood flow throughout the body. It has also been found to increase female libido. So, though broccoli has always been viewed as the healthy, boring vegetable, maybe now you’ll see it as more than that. It can be steamed or sautéed along with other vegetables, baked into lasagna, or even tossed into a salad. It’s versatile and oh-so-useful!

Cloves

This super-spice has a wide range of health benefits, from mild anesthetic properties to antibacterial properties. Just a small amount of clove extract, when ingested, can lead to heightened levels of testosterone, increasing libido in both men and women. Clove oil has even been used to treat erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation in men. Another seemingly but important benefit is that it leads to fresher breath, and that’s always a plus! Cloves are used in Indian and Oriental cuisine on a regular basis, and they’re also a great addition to tea and coffee, giving the beverages a lovely flavor.

Pine nuts

Zinc is a key mineral for male libido, and pine nuts are high in zinc. They can be used in cookies, making them the perfect crunch aphrodisiac dessert. They can also be toasted and used as a salad topping. Our favorite recipe, of course, is pesto, a beautiful blend of pine nuts, olive oil, garlic, basil, and cheese. Could zinc get any yummier?

Ginger

The Kama Sutra mentions ginger as an effective natural aphrodisiac, and more recently, studies have found that ginger increases testosterone secretion, a crucial factor for sex drive. Ginger has so many other health benefits such as anti-infection and pro-digestive properties, which make consuming it a win-win situation. Ginger can be used as an herb in salads and pasta. It can also be infused into a tea, giving it a rich, spicy flavor.

Figs

These fruits are a rich source of magnesium, an element required for sex hormone synthesis. They also significantly increase blood flow through the body and to the genital organs. It has been advised to eat approximately five figs before you hit the hay, and you’re good to go. Figs can be incorporated into salads or made into a sauce and poured generously over ice cream.

Avocados

This fruit (yes, it’s a fruit, not a vegetable!) has so many positive nutritional qualities that is deserves an exhaustive article devoted to it. Avocados contain healthy fats as well as vitamin B6, folic acid, and vitamin E, all three of which are known to boost sex drive. Vitamin E, in particular, has antioxidant properties and also increases blood flow throughout the body, an important factor for arousal and sexual pleasure. Avocados make for great smoothies, dips, and spreads. The most popular avocado dish is probably guacamole. This fruit is so delicious that you can just cut it open, snack on it plain, and enjoy the blood coursing through your body after!
