Cooking mistakes you make that make you gain weight

They say losing weight is 80 percent what you eat.

It not only keeps you on track of what to eat and hat not to eat but it also saves on costs.

Cooking your food at home is one step closer to your desired weight goals and now it’s just to learn how to cook your meals so that your entire weight loss plan isn’t a complete bust.

Check out the cooking mistakes to avoid when trying to lose weight.

Baking without a grill

If you’re cooking something in the oven always make sure to put it on the grill instead of just placing it on the pan. Placing your meat on the pan directly will be counteractive seeing that the oil is not draining but just being soaked up on your meat.

Using wrong oils to cook

Use the right oils when cooking. For instance, use olive oil for salad dressings and the regular oils such as sunflower oils and coconut for grilling and sautéing food.

Using too much oil

This point shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Too much oil is equivalent to a lot of calories. Too many calories can translate into weight gain.

Not using spices

Spices in place of fats, sugar and salt can help in losing weight. They are also good for boosting health, contain antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.
