Obesity… It is a great problem in the United States.
I have made it a lifelong goal to help rid America of obesity. And many food manufacturers as well as eating establishments have made it a difficult task. But I do notice people are starting to awaken to the fact that they don’t want to get fat.
While there are various reasons people gain weight, the top one is the foods they are ingesting.
I have decided to make a list of 7 foods you may want to stay away from if your don’t want to get fat.
Now, I don’t want to seem like the “food Grinch,” but many of these items have no nutritional value and they may seem fun until you look in a mirror and wonder how you gained so much weight
So, let’s look at these 7 obesity makers…
#1 Foods To Stay Away From: Soda
Some call it soda, others call it pop and still others call all flavors the name of one brand, coke. No matter what you call it, it is no good. It is non-nutritious, full of sugars and really does not quench your thirst as many think it does.
There are many alternatives that are much better for you with the top spot going to the best thirst quencher of all, water.
#2 Foods To Stay Away From: Chicken Fried Steak With Gravy
This is a meal made in many of America’s restaurants and it is a sure fire way to get fat.
Not that the flattened steak is all that fattening, but when you add all that breading and the gravy concoction on top, you are filling yourself with a load of obesity.
If you must have this meal, I suggest you split one portion between 3 or 4 people.
#3 Foods To Stay Away From: French Fries
Potatoes on their own are a starch that once eaten and digested, turns to a sugar in your body. An occasional baked potato is not terribly bad for you, but when you cut that potato in pieces and deep fat fry them, you are setting yourself up for weight gain. Not to mention, that grease is not very good for your arteries.
#4 Foods To Stay Away From: Double, Single… Quadruple Burgers
It seems some eating establishments are getting carried away.
It saddens me whenever I see one of those eating television series and watch a man who must weigh 300 pounds wrapping his jaws around a massive amount of hamburger, cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion; and topped with bacon or chili.
He weighed 300 going in and 320 going out…
If someone dares you to do it, dare them to jump off the Statue of Liberty because they are daring you to die younger than you should.
#5 Foods To Stay Away From: Monstrous Hot Dogs
Nearby in Connecticut, there is a huge love for what they call the 2 foot hot dog…
First thing is, do you have any idea where the meat from a hot dog comes from?
Secondly, they wrap these things in monstrous buns and add all kinds of items on top that just screams fat!
How about a carrot instead?
#6 Foods To Stay Away From: Frozen Pizza
Pizza in general can be fattening, but those frozen things you can get at supermarkets takes fattening to an even higher level.
They are a carb-fest. And I have told you before how carbs will take over your bodies energy manufacturing and if you have too many carbohydrates going in, your body will not burn the fat. The result is weight gain.
#7 Foods To Stay Away From: Whites
The last on this list may be confusing… Whites???
Yes, white rice, white bread, and pasta that is normally an off-white.
These are another line of foods that are high in carbohydrates and go right along with what I told you in #6.
It’s just a small list… I could name many more, but I believe you are getting the idea…
Remember, fruits, vegetables, nuts and grass raised meats are your best friends.
Let’s get the weight gain down and life will be more fun.
