Trying to slim down and nothing seems to be working? Try avoiding these food first.

1. Sugar-Free Ice Cream
Are you kidding? There is no such thing as ice cream that is good for you, or low-fat ice cream. It doesn't sound right when you say it because it isn't real. If you have a sweet tooth that take you hostage from time to time, try sorbet and a gluten-free cookie instead.

2. Guacamole
Avocados are a source of heart-healthy fats, but just one avocado can pack more than 300 calories and over half your daily allotment of fat! Eat no more than a quarter of an avocado per day (one or two dips) or skip it altogether and try a lower-calorie fresh salsa instead.

3. Salad Toppings
They taste so good and since you're having salad you trick yourself into thinking you're eating right, but you aren't if you're eating these fattening salad dressings and toppings. Keep your greens lean and healthy by topping them with grilled chicken, eggs and an assortment of seasonal veggies instead.

See our complete list of seven sneaky foods that can they can sabotage your waistline and derail your weigh loss goals.
