Some of the best-tasting foods are actually some of the worst in terms of fat and calories. We’re giving you a list of 6 items you should pretty much never keep around. Never. Some of them are obvious but others have concealed themselves as healthy options. Read the list, write it down and then check your kitchen straight away. It may be time for a kitchen cleanse!
1. Colas And Sodas
Your taste buds love the feeling of this carbonated drink! But you know this drink is far from all natural. Its high fructose corn syrup is bad for your health. A major part of the problem is that sodas have become a staple in many people’s diets.
2. Fast Food
If having this type of food on a daily basis won’t kill you, nothing will. We are all aware of the fact that eating fast food is bad for our health! It is because of all the trans fats and other additives that fast food tastes so good. Trans fats contribute to heart disease, cancer, bone problems, hormonal imbalance and skin disease.
3. Microwave Popcorn
Microwave or movie popcorn? Both are really harmful for you. Microwave popcorn has trans fat that is more than double when you consume it daily. If you must have popcorn, you should reduce your serving to one and don’t consume it daily.
4. Packaged Cookies
What makes packaged cookies so bad? They contain high amounts of trans fats and additives like corn syrup, preservatives and artificial flavors and colors. These cookies are often made with hydrogenated oils and fried in it.
If you knew pancakes were harmful, would you give them up? They are a part of your daily breakfast and you literally cannot do without them. Right? But, your pancake mix is in a box, and it includes trans fat in its powdered form. There is a better solution to your pancake dilemma. Make your own batter so you know what ingredients are involved.
6. Specialty Burgers, Whoppers & Big Macs
Wimpy was a wimp. And Popeye? He was the spinach eating, huge forearmed badass who kicked the giant Bluto’s ass. Burgers are one of the unhealthiest foods. The protein in burgers has very low quality. They are extremely high in calories while being extremely low in nutrients.
