How do all those celebrities stay in such great shape? Well, it's not by eating these 6 foods!
FitSugar recently polled a few celebrity trainers to find out which foods they would never recommend and a couple of items on the list are quite surprising.
Tara Stiles said to stay away from alcohol. “No one wants to hear this one, but if you want your body to operate optimally and look fantastic — and younger — avoid alcohol," Stiles said.
Lady Gaga's trainer, Harley Pasternack, says grapes and bananas are not your friend. “No one is going to live a shorter life if they have bananas or grapes,” Pasternack said. “A banana is just the densest piece of fruit that you can put in your body, and since it doesn’t have much fiber, it won’t keep you full. Grapes have a special sugar in them called dextrose, which is the highest glycemic sugar that you can possibly put in your body.”
A no-brainer, Valerie Waters says people should stay away from processed foods. “If a food item has ingredients you don’t recognize or can’t pronounce, you probably shouldn’t eat it," said Jessica Biels' trainer said.
John Damon says all sodas should be avoided, even diet, as they can contribute to kidney problems and heart disease.
While most think yogurt is a great and nutritious snack, Jackie Warner says it's not as good as we all think as most of the yogurt that is available to us is full of sugar.
Trainer on The Hills Jarett Del Bene, says margarine is not as good as we might've thought. It's “loaded with empty calories and is packed with trans fat, which is the worst fat to consume.”
And last but not least, David Kirsch says gluten-free is the way to go. Heidi Klum's go-to guy says gluten can make you feel bloated and, well, that's never good.
