Sugar and high fructose corn syrup are the epitome of anti-fitness food. Nothing will destroy your progress, expand your waist and plummet your energy levels like sugar. If you only take away one do-not-eat food from this slideshow, please let it be sugar.

Try This Instead: Fruit

Don’t turn to artificial sweeteners to get your sweet fix, instead turn to nature’s wholesome source of sugar: fruit. Eat organic fruit that is seasonal and locally grown. Stay away from dried fruit and fruit juices, as these are high in simple calories.

These babies are convenient (Hello, dinner in five minutes or less!) but are often heavily processed and filled with fat and salt. Not only are they stripped of life’s most important nutrients (minerals and phytonutrients) but they’re often time filled with preservatives that are harmful to your body.

Try This Instead: Whole Foods

Instead of going this route, make a big meal (like a yummy soup or stew) at home when you have some downtime, portion it out, and freeze the servings. Frozen fruits and veggies are OK, too, as long as you look for options without added sauces or salt.
