There are a lot of things that cause weight gain (increase in fat mass). This article is based on my experience working w/ clients - their common tendencies. Therefore, most of them had to greatly reduce or remove the following (6-12 months to see results).
Sabotage foods converted into or marketed as fitness/health foods: some individuals consume cereal bars (to reduce fat mass), and for whatever reason, that method didn't work. Therefore, the list below may hit a core w/ some people. If you can eat the following and remain fit - that's you and you're not the majority.
After greatly reducing / removing the following....
Some of them reported positive things: reduce in hunger / body fat, balanced/improved blood sugar (A1C), and well-functioning digestive & gastrointestinal system (reduced bloatedness / gut distention).
I hear: "Foods and beverages are not addictive."
Top food and beverages:
Sugary-caffeinated beverages (energy drinks)
Standard cereal products
Standard cakes (bake goods)
Decent % of grain products
Decent % of wheat products
