The Worst Foods You Can Put Inside Your Body

It’s time for some tough love! The foods you eat can either make you healthier or make you sicker. These are the foods you should eliminate from your diet and those you should limit or avoid.

Here Are the Worst Foods You Can Put Inside Your Body:

  • Bagels

Bagels are a staple of most dieters’ morning routine, but are they worth it? A bagel has around 200 calories, 13 grams of fat, and 5.6 grams of saturated fat. That’s a lot of calories and fat for one little, flat, bready thing. Your bagel will be dense with carbohydrates, and since carbs turn to sugar, bagels have 22 grams of added sugar. Eating a lot of carbs can cause your blood sugar to spike, which can lead to an increase in insulin production and an increase in fat storage.

  • Anything Deep Fried

Think that fried food isn’t bad for you? Think again! Fried food contains more artery-clogging saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol than virtually any other food. And unfortunately, even when you fry your food in a healthy way, there’s still enough grease, salt, and sugar in the food to make it bad for you.

  • Processed Meat

Processed meats are, for the most part, unhealthy. The meat industry, in general, has been under scrutiny lately for a large amount of antibiotics and animal growth hormones used in their meat, as well as the health concerns that come with obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

  • Microwave Popcorn

Microwave popcorn is a common snack that many of us turn to when we’re craving something salty or crunchy. The problem, however, is that unless you make your own at home, microwave popcorn comes with a long list of pesticides, artificial flavors, and preservatives. If you plan to make microwave popcorn at home, consider air-popping your kernels instead. Homemade popcorn is much healthier than microwave popcorn, plus it’s easy to customize.

  • Soda

Most of us know that sodas are unhealthy and that they need to be avoided. But did you also know that sodas may include some very dangerous ingredients and additives that you should avoid? Diet sodas are the great enemy. Diet sodas contain artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, sucralose, and saccharin. These sweeteners may cause tooth loss, cataracts, and bladder cancer.

  • Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners are used to sweeten everything from foods to beverages to medicine. While many people enjoy artificial sweeteners, others believe they are dangerous. Although the jury is still out, recent research has linked artificial sweeteners to weight gain and obesity over time.

  • Shelf-stable Condiments

Sure, condiments taste great, but they pack a serious gut punch. Unfortunately, we can’t always control what gets shipped with a meal, but she says two condiments, in particular, should be avoided at all costs: ketchup and mustard. Both are chock-full of added sugar—including corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, and high-fructose corn syrup—and are some of the worst foods to put inside your body. Ketchup’s chemical formula is 2% vinegar, 2% water, and 94% sugar. On the other hand, mustard is made from a fermented mixture of grains, seeds, and chilies and is sweetened with sugar.

  • Stick Margarine

Stick margarine is one of the worst foods you can put inside your body. Most margarine contains trans-fatty acids, which are linked to heart disease and elevated LDL cholesterol levels. Unfortunately, very few foods contain Trans fatty acids, so the only way to get the full amount of these harmful compounds is through artificial means.

Diets are supposed to help you lose weight. But like every diet, the diets out there don’t work for everyone. They cause you extreme hunger, leave you hungry all the time, and cause your energy levels to plummet. Plus, some are downright dangerous to your health.
