5 Worst Food Pairings for Weight Loss

When your digestive system is out of whack, your stomach lining can become damaged and you may acquire weight due to improper calorie management. 

1. Bananas and milk

The combination of bananas and milk is one example of a food pairing that may be detrimental to your health.

2. Toast with jam

This classic breakfast staple, which is enjoyed by many, may not be as good a choice as you believe. 

Toast with marmalade is carbohydrate overload. Manaker recommends adding nut butter to increase the amount of protein and healthy fats.

3. Chips and salsa

While it may hurt your heart to read this, eating chips and salsa may hinder your weight loss efforts. 

The chips and salsa combination not only has a high sodium content but can also contribute to overeating due to a lack of healthy fats or protein that promotes satiety.

4. Grilled cheese and tomato soup

A dish that warms our souls, but is not at all helpful for those attempting to lose weight.

Most canned tomato soups are surprisingly high in sugar due to the addition of high fructose corn syrup, and grilled cheese is high in fat, carbs, but low in protein.

Weight gain, foods high in sodium have been linked to high blood pressure, stroke, and cardiac disease, according to Harvard Health.

Research suggests that oatmeal is a leading contender for weight loss. 

5. Oatmeal and dried fruit

This combination can also increase blood sugar and insulin, a hormone that may promote fat storage.

Instead, add a lean protein and fats, such as Greek yogurt, nuts, and seeds, to balance it out keep blood sugar stable.
