I wonder what you are all thinking, McDonalds maybe, KFC, Burger King, Pizza, Chocolate I would imagine would be the most common answers to this question. Quite surprising that these things spring to mind and are probably consumed more than most in the world today.

Being a personal trainer one of my primary aims is to educate my client’s and readers, on how to eat healthily. Eating healthily is one of the primary factors in determining one’s health. A bad diet = bad health a good diet = good health more often than not.

So back to my headline, the worst food you can eat if you want a flat stomach. I decided to write this because many a time have people asked me what is the worst food you can eat.

Well here it is (drum roll), the worst food you can eat is the one you can’t stop eating! Read over that again if you need to. So it is not a specific food, the worst food is something which has a hold over you, a borderline addiction, something you know once the pack is opened you will struggle to stop eating it until it is all gone!

So yes the list of foods that we mentioned out of the top a lot of the time will be your worst food, for others it could be crisps or literally anything that you can’t stop eating. Clearly if the food that you can’t stop eating is a fruit or a vegetable it will pose less of a problem than popcorn or ice cream.

I have experienced it myself when eating a big bag of crisps for example, for the duration of the pack you are having a constant mental battle with the crisps! At the start you think you’ll just have a few, a bit more than few in you think ‘I’ll work extra hard tomorrow don’t worry’ before you know it you are 3/4s of the way in and you think ‘there’s no point in leaving this many’ and the bag is gone.

How can you avoid this?

The first thing I would say is do not overstock your cupboards with this certain product. It is a lot easier to resist temptation when the nearest pack is in Tesco rather than the kitchen!

If you have kids you don’t want to feed them something you wouldn’t eat yourself. So try and avoid the team trips to McDonalds because you are more than likely to dig in yourself.

Make a list of the top 3 foods which really hold you back from your nutritional goals and limit them dramatically. Yes they do taste great, that’s why they can be so irresistible to some people but if you want to be healthy and achieve that flat belly look which many people strive for, then sacrifices need to be made.

So find your worst food and send it packing!
