Ten Foods You Should NEVER Eat!
Better alternatives exist: TEN SUPER FOODS for BETTER HEALTH!
1 Artery Crust. 1 Artery Crust.
Judging by the label, Pepperidge Farm Original Flaky Crust Roasted Chicken Pot Pie has 510 calories and 9 grams of saturated fat. But look again. Those numbers are for half a pie. Eat the entire pie, as most people probably do, and you're talking more than 1,000 calories and 18 grams of sat fat. Then add the 13 grams of hidden trans fat (from the partially hydrogenated vegetable shortening) in each pie and you're up to 31 grams of artery-clogging fat that's far more than a day's allotment.
 
2 Strip Tease. 2 Strip Tease.
McDonald's Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips sounds healthy. In fact, ounce for ounce, the Selects are no healthier than the chain's Chicken McNuggets. A standard, fivestrip order has 630 calories and 11 grams of artery-clogging fat. That's about the same as a Big Mac, except the burger has 1,010 mg of sodium, while the Selects hit 1,550 mg, even without the salty sauce.
 
3 Factory Reject.   3 Factory Reject.
Each slice of The Cheesecake Factory's 6 Carb Cheesecake has 610 calories that's the same as you'd get from a slice of their Original Cheesecake. Think of it as an 8-ounce prime rib for dessert with 29 grams of saturated fat, 1 days' supply. The next time you step on the bathroom scale, you may never know that the carbs were missing.
 
4 Everlasting Dove.   4 Everlasting Dove.
Dove squeezes some 300 calories and 8 to 13 grams of saturated fat (half-a-day's worth) into a tennis-ball size serving (half a cup) of its Dove Ice Cream. That puts it in the same ballpark as Ben & Jerry's and Hagen-Dazs. With names like "Unconditional Chocolate," Dove is trying to link chocolate with romance. A scoop of its ice cream will fill your heart all right but not with love.
 
5 Out in Left Field.   5 Out in Left Field.
No one expects a Mrs. Fields cookie to be good for you, but who would guess that a single Mrs. Fields Milk Chocolate & Walnuts cookie has more than 300 calories and as much saturated fat as a 12-ounce sirloin steak? It's also got six teaspoons of sugar. If you can't resist Mrs. Fields, share the smallest bag of Nibblers (six half-ounce cookies) with a friend. Or walk a few feet and look for a piece of fruit at another store instead.
 
6 Starbucks on Steroids.   6 Starbucks on Steroids.
The Starbucks Venti (20 oz.) Caff Mocha with whipped cream is more than a mere cup of coffee. Think of it as a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in a cup. Few people have room in their diets for the 490 calories and 16 grams of bad fat that this hefty beverage supplies. But you can lose all the bad fat and all but 170 calories if you order a tall (12 oz.) with nonfat milk and no whipped cream.
 
7 Coronary King.   7 Coronary King.
Unless you're suicidal, why on earth would you want to wolf down a Burger King Quad Stacker 4 hamburger patties, 4 slices of cheese, 8 strips of bacon, plus sauce and a bun? That's half-a-day's calories (1,000), one-and-a-half-days' worth of saturated fat (30 grams), 3 grams of trans fat, and more than a day's sodium (1,800 mg). Urp!
 
8 Salts On!   8 Salts On!
Campbell's Chunky, Select, and red-and-white-label condensed soups are brimming with salt: Half a can averages more than half of a person's daily quota of salt. Instead, try brands like Healthy Choice and Campbell's Healthy Request, which have less than half as much sodium.
 
9 Oops!   9 Oops!
Interested in a Chipotle Chicken Burrito (tortilla, rice, pinto beans, cheese, chicken, sour cream, and salsa)? Think of its 1,180 calories and 19 grams of saturated fat as three 6-inch Subway Steak and Cheese Subs. Getting the burrito with no cheese or sour cream cuts the saturated fat by two-thirds, but you still end up with 950 calories. Yikes!
 
10 Razzle, Dazzle em.   10 Razzle, Dazzle em.
A Mint Chip Dazzler at Hagen-Dazs stores (three scoops of ice cream, hot fudge, Oreos, chocolate sprinkles, and whipped cream) has 1,270 calories and 38 grams of saturated fat that's two days' worth. Think of it as a portable T-bone steak with Caesar salad, and baked potato with sour cream. But that's dinner yet many people have a Dazzler as a dessert after lunch and dinner!
