Question: If all I eat are salads and diet soda, how come I still can’t lose weight? Could coffee, tea, and diet foods contribute to weight gain? They have no calories.
When you have watched your weight in the past, you may have gotten in the habit of eating large quantities of low calorie (or no-calorie) foods such as large salads and unlimited amounts of vegetables just because they were low or no-calorie. You might have been thinking that these choices will help you lose weight. It does the reverse.
Eating large quantities of low calorie foods you don’t need and cannot process, gives you a false sense of accomplishment. Eating large quantities of any kind of food makes you feel stuffed and bloated. Then when you go to eat foods that are not as low in calorie, you expect to eat to the point of feeling stuffed, bloated, and uncomfortable. When you reach your weight loss goal, you want to feel loose in your clothes not stuffed and bloated.
