Deep fried dough covered in sugar! What could be worse for your figure, and for your body in general really?
Around 800 calories for the average serving, and a huge amount of fat.
Laden with fat and sodium, and well over 1,000 calories apeice, it’s another ‘better to be missed’ on the go snack.
Chilli Cheese Fries
Fat, salt and calories galore in these. Best to be avoided if you’re trying to be healthy and/or shed a few pounds.
Forget all those expensive fancy fad diets. Lose 30lbs in a month? Who are they trying to kid?
The average sustained weight loss is about two lbs per week over time. Some weeks you may only lose a lb, other weeks perhaps you’ll lose three lbs.
You’ll find that the flavors of really fresh fruit and vegetables, farm-fresh new laid eggs, lean meat direct for local farms, and locally baked whole grain breads, will have you eating a bit slower, which will make you fill up on less food.Still one of the best ways to lose weight is to eat good tasting food. Instead of consuming bland salt and fat and preservative laden convenience or fast food, why not try out your local Farmer’s Market?
You see, your brain doesn’t tell you you’re full until about twenty minutes after you’ve eaten, so when you scoff down that 1,500 calorie huge burger and large fries, it’s not until those twenty minutes have passed, that your stomach tells your brain that you’ve eaten too much. Eat slower, and you will be fuller on less!
One Krispy Kreme Creme Filled Chocolate Doughnut comes with 20g of fat, 23g of sugar, and 38g of carbohydrate.
Why not eat some oatmeal instead? It’s high in fiber, helps to lower Cholesterol, and if you add some fruit like banana or berries to it, makes it quite delicious too.
Did you know that the average one ounce bag of regular, salted potato chips contains 155 calories, over ten grams of fat, of which over three are saturated, and 150mg of sodium?
The average American eats over one hundred bags a year. Do the math, and it works out at around seven pounds of chips a year.
A much better option would be the pairing of hummus and some pita bread. Each pita has under a hundred calories, and less that one gram of fat. Hummus is one of the healthiest dips you can choose, and it tastes darn good too!
It depends how it’s cooked.
Swing by KFC, and get four pieces of their Original Recipe Chicken, and you’ve got 920 calories on your plate, along with 63g of fat, 350mg of cholesterol, and that’s just the chicken and not the sides.
You’re way better off eating a chicken breast that’s been grilled with the skin
removed. Now, you’ve got 120 calories, only 1.5g of fat, and 70mg of that darned cholesterol. Add a salad with a little low-fat dressing, and you’ve got a meal that’s easily as nutritious, and much more healthy.
