The 11 Foods and Drinks To Stop Consuming

The goal is clear.  This is the list of foods and drinks to avoid; period!  If you need to, you can begin by identifying a coal and start to cut back.  If you are someone who drinks three diet sodas a day, cut down to two.  Then next week reduce to one.  Challenge yourself to get 1% better every day.  Here is the list of 11 foods to avoid:

#1: Sugar (corn syrup, fructose, molasses, sucrose) #fitness
