There are many foods in this world you would have been better off never eating.
This is especially true for junk/processed foods. While undeniably tasty and addicting, most of these foods have detrimental effects on your body.
In addition, they fail to provide your body with the necessary micronutrients to function optimally.
Here are five foods you should consider staying away from.
1. Do Not Eat: Fried Food
Fried food is loaded with fat and calories while offering zero nutritional value. It’s a lose-lose! Sure, fries and chips TASTE good, but healthier items also taste good. Just say no to the deep fried items on your menu. You’ll be thinner, healthier and won’t have greasy fingers.
Try This Instead: Broiled
If you simply must have a French fry, then make them at home in your oven. Use sweet potatoes, as these are a more complex carbohydrate. Cut into matchsticks, drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil along with a dash of salt, then place in your oven on broil. Turn every five minutes until the fries are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.
