101 Worst Foods To Eat

From eDiets - The online diet, fitness, and healthy living resource

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to spot a truly worst food... not when the high fat, high calories concoction is on the end of your fork and heading for your gaping mouth... or when it is staring you in the eye from the shelf at the local market.

101 Worst Foods To Eat Yet even though few of us are that clueless to fall for a worst food choice, it never hurts to be reminded of the many lunchable landmines that litter the road to lower weight and better health.

While making a pit stop recently at one of those "we sell anything we can cram in here" gas stations, I was lulled into buying what looked to my hungry eye like a small bag of Cracker Jack. This 99-cent special was a buttered toffee type that was obviously created by the evil geniuses at Cracker Jack to take a bite out of the Fiddle Faddle and Crunch 'n Munch sales.

My wife was driving and I was happily kicked back in the passenger seat and munching on the "good stuff" when I turned over the bag and gave the nutritional label a closer scan. A serving of Cracker Jack weighs in at 120 calories and 23 grams of carbs. The bag I held so easily in one hand happened to hold 3.5 servings.

In a flash, I was transported back to the days of bubblegum music... the days of my sweet childhood memories... the days of The Archies...

Ah, sugar... dut dut dut dut dut duh... oh, honey, honey... you are my candy girl and ya got me wanting you...

Whatta jughead I was to fall for such a high-sugar, no value snack.

In honor of my gas station gaffe, I dedicate today's column to the time -- not to mention calories and fat -- we have wasted on the way to better health and better-looking bodies.

I know many of you will read the list of 101 of the Worst Foods, shake your head, and mutter, "Mr. Bad Food's done gone and lost it... the sugar and fat have corroded his cranium..."

Yes, the foods mentioned here are easy to spot. But please consider this list as a gentle reminder that there are many, many bad foods lurking out there (most seem to be found clogging highway mini-marts or at the fast food joint that's now often attached at the mini-mart's thickening hip). Your new mantra should be: read labels, know serving sizes.

  • Donuts, breakfast rolls or any rich confectionary item

  • Anything loaded in sugar and/or deep fried

  • Fast food hamburgers such as Burger King's Whoppers or McDonald's Big Macs or Quarter Pounders

  • Rich, high-fat ice cream

  • Deep-fried shrimp or chicken (heck, any deep-fried meat fits the bill)

  • Latte with real whipped cream and other calorie-laden flavorings

  • Regular soda pop with sugar

  • Mashed potatoes that are loaded with butter

  • Full-fat cheeses

  • Whole milk

  • Most pizzas

  • Most pies

  • Macaroni & cheese

  • Rich salad dressings

  • French fries

  • Heavy gravies

  • Most breads

  • Heavy cream sauces

  • "Hungry Man" or other "supersized" frozen dinners

  • Manhandlers soups

  • Most candy bars

  • Frosted breakfast cereals

  • Pre-cooked breakfast sandwiches

  • Breaded fish and meats

  • Canned pasta dishes

  • Cashews

  • Cashew butter

  • Canned stew

  • Mayonnaise

  • Potato pancakes

  • Most stuffing mixes

  • Cornbread

  • Tortellini

  • Calzones

  • Malted milks and milk shakes

  • Eggs Benedict

  • Chicken Kiev

  • Regular peanut butters

  • Canned pie filling

  • Fettuccine Alfredo

  • Corned beef hash

  • Liver dumplings

  • Creamed oysters

  • Most packaged lunchmeats

  • Most cakes and cookies

  • Jellies/jams/marmalades

  • Bratwurst

  • Anything cooked with shortening

  • Full-strength cream cheese

  • Packaged snack bars

  • Canned chili

  • Enchiladas

  • Burritos

  • Any high-fat cut of red meat

  • Ritz crackers

  • Egg rolls

  • Pork sausage

OK, so there you have it -- a smorgasbord of foods to avoid, as served up by Mr. Bad Food and eDiets.
