Healthy Foods That Cause Weight Gain & How to Avoid Them

Healthy Foods That Cause Weight Gain by POPSUGAR Fitness covers the NUMBER 1 Reason that I love 21 Day Fix from Beachbody:

Cutting back on junk is a must when you’re ready to shed a few pounds, but there are plenty of foods with good-for-you reputations that can mess with your progress if you’re not careful. This is a problem wellness consultant and nutritionist Dana Kofsky sees again and again with her clients; people don’t pay attention to portion control and eat oversize amounts of healthy foods without realizing. Dana is all about good fats and nutritionally dense foods, as long as the portions are in check! If you’re looking to lose weight, check out Dana’s recommended daily serving sizes for some of the most common (and delicious) healthy foods.

Almonds: 1/4 cup kernels (206 calories)
Avocado: 1/4 large or 1/2 small fruit (80 calories)
Banana: 1 small or 1/2 large fruit (61 to 89 calories)
Dark chocolate: 1 ounce (138 calories)
Nut butter: 2 tablespoons (202 calories)
Olive oil: 2 tablespoons (238 calories)
Pistachios: 1/4 cup kernels (171 calories)
Quinoa: 1/2 cup, cooked (111 calories)
Walnuts: 1/4 cup shelled halves (163 calories)

Can we look at all the YUMMY stuff on this list? These are things that we know are healthy, so sometimes, we overindulge. We eat a whole avocado. We slather our whole grain toast with tons of peanut butter. We chomp on the WHOLE banana.

That’s where 21 Day Fix comes in handy. There are SIX portion control containers, and one easy calculation (that I’ll even do FOR you!), and you can be eating the right portions for YOUR body.


This awesome portion control system is combined with short 30 minute exercises to help you get to the body you’ve always wanted.

It takes 21 Days to create a habit, and what you do TODAY will define your future. Comment below or email me for more information about this life-changing, habit forming program!
