It is not recommended to drink alcohol, especially if you are trying to lose weight. Alcohol can cause low blood sugar levels and make it difficult to control your appetite. Alcohol is also high in calories and has no nutritional benefits. If you are going to drink alcohol, make sure it is in moderation and with food so that it does not affect your diet too much. In addition, drinking water before or during an alcoholic beverage will help keep the calorie intake down. 11) Processed meats: Processed meats like ham and bacon are very salty which means that they have a lot of sodium (a chemical that increases bloating)
Processed meats may also contain nitrates which is what turns them pinkish-red in color (hence the nickname pink slime). Nitrates have been linked to an increased risk of cancer development among other things. The World Health Organization now lists processed meat as being carcinogenic to humans on par with tobacco smoking and asbestos exposure. 12) Soda: Soda drinks are known as liquid candy because they contain excessive amounts of sugar.
