5 Foods You Should Never Eat Again

476246441

When you are trying to improve your health and lose weight, there are certain foods that you should avoid.

Many of these foods are obviously unhealthy because they contain ingredients that are known to cause weight gain.

However, some other foods which are not so obviously linked to weight gain can nevertheless turn out to be just as bad for you.

These foods are deeply problematic, because most people do not know to avoid them and therefore end up consuming them much more often than they should. Here are 5 foods that you should never eat again:

1. White Bread

White bread is a staple in most pantries, but the truth is that it doesn’t have any nutritional value. White bread contains a lot of sugar and it doesn’t have the ability to keep you satisfied, so within a few hours you are likely to find yourself feeling hungry and reaching for snacks.

As a result of these factors, it is unsurprising that research on those who eat white bread shows a correlation between eating larger quantities of white bread and being more likely to gain unwanted weight over a period of 12 years. As it turns out, even breads that claim to be wheat could contain more sugar than grain and should often be avoided.

Ideally, you should replace your white bread with whole grain or whole wheat bread whenever possible, as whole wheat bread is positively good for your health.

Bake your own bread – Order Breadmaker now

For example, it is a source of gamma-oryzanol, which lowers cholesterol levels if consumed on a regular basis, and some studies even suggest that women who eat the largest amount of whole grains are around 40% less likely to develop breast cancer (when compared to women who eat the smallest amount of whole grains).

In addition, don’t forget that you can also substitute white bread on your sandwiches with lettuce leaves or whole grain tortillas.

    I have eaten white rice almost every day for my 50 years of life with no ill effects. I am not fat certainly not obese…I am half Japanese and when I am home in Japan; there is a nation of white rice eaters that are also some of the healthiest in the world…so white rice will always be on my list of foods to eat.

    I watched a Chinese man at work lose weight rapidly with a rice mono diet.

    I guess the Chinese are the most unhealthy people on Earth. Practically everything they eat is fried in a wok. In fact people buy some much cooking oil here it amazes me! They use more oil in a month than I used in a year and I did do some deep fat frying at home!. And they don’t drain it out, it is served with the food and consumed

    Anything in moderation is OK. Period. Not as good as skipping them, but we still have to enjoy life, not just spend all our waking hours trying to think how to extend it, no?

    BTW-‘White rice makes you fat’…explain to me that cultures that eat a lot of it are traditionally lean?

    These all are generally obvious but, also, what are your credentials for giving out nutritional recommendations?? I am sure you’re not a RD or even a tech..

    Yes, you are correct that white bread should be eaten less than whole grains but it does not need to be fully avoided. It does have quite a bit of nutrients in them. Some of them being fortified. For example, white bread has a good amount of folate in it while whole grains does not. So it is good to occasionally eat an enriched white bread. And this is coming from a RD, it isnt good to give out recommendations like this. What should and shouldn’t be avoided is different for many people and with giving out statements like this can possibly harm someone.

    You can talk all you want about what to eat or not eat but the real key is how much you eat. Ten years ago, I’m 74 now, I weighed 475 pounds and I decided to lose the weight. All I did was to cut my portions in half at regular meals. I did not do extra exercise nor did I change the food I ate. It took me 5 years but I now weigh 240. I also know exactly what to do to lose weight. Portions are the key. Exercise improves metabolism and general health but is not the key to weight loss. I did not eat unhealthy food when I was heavy, just ate too much. I changed my life and I’m sure it extended my life. I’m waiting for great great grand kids now.

    I can’t believe white rice is included in this list….most asian countries including where I came from eat white rice 3x a day…asians have lower cancer rate, healthier, stronger and live longer than most westerners do.

    Sorry but if all these foods were as dangerous as claimed here, 80% of the world population will drop dead before they reach 50. Eat whatever you like once in a while, with restraint. Nothing wrong with eating home made french fries 2 times per month and nothing wrong with rice. There are Chinese people who ate nothing but white rice and dried fish their whole life and got to become a century old.

    Typical bunch of garbage. I quit reading when I got to #4. White rice? Seriously?? Tell that to Asians (who have some of the the longest lifespans in the world) that eat white rice at EVERY MEAL!!!! My mother is Japanese and is 72 years old….and STILL gets mistaken as my sister! Not to be too obvious or anything but the problem with the American diet is less about WHAT is eaten than it is about HOW MUCH is eaten. Portion sizes in the US are ridiculous.

    False syllogisms: everyone breaths air. Everyone who breaths air will die. Therefore the air you breath will lead to your demise.

    Obviously, this is untrue, but an example of fallacies in logic. Don’t believe everything you read. 🙂

    Falling off my chair laughing at the absurdity of some of this article. “White rice is bad”. Really? I don’t see very many Asians with necks so fat you can’t tell where the shoulders end and the head begins, such as you see here in America. The real culprit in weight gain isn’t so much fat, it is eating a high amount of refined sugars and sitting on your ass for most hours of the day watching TV.

      Its called Obesity and its genetic. Its more prevalent among asians as they tend to marry and mate within their sect/caste so there is a higher probability of them being obese.

    I’ve lost 70 pounds in 15 weeks, twice. The second time I swore I’d never lose weight again. While I do agree with some of the things in this article, others are a toss up (cream-based salad dressings go a long way, there’s no need to pile them on). I don’t eat: white bread (tastes like starch), white potatos (tasteless until you pile on the calorie-laden toppings, so why not just eat the toppings and skip the potato?), mayonnaise (tastes like fat, because that’s what it is-mustard has WAY more flavor), any kind of processed sugar (makes me sick), pepperoni (pure grease), bacon (again, pure grease), soft drinks (they’re either sugar or chemicals, neither is good), ground beef less than 85% lean (too much grease even when grilled), shortening or anything made with it (pure grease again). To make it simple, cut out the junk from your diet and start exercising.

    This is pure nonsense. How come Asians eat rice everyday and a lot of them live to be 100?!!!
    Moderation. You can eat just about anything as long as you do it in moderation. I’m 6’2′ 190 pds and 58 yrs young. I Walk, ride bike and do calestenics 5 days a week for at least an hour. I eat rice, fried foods and ice cream and cake too!! I do drink 2 cups of coffee everyday and a glass of red wine or 2..with my evening meal. ohh and I drink green tea often. No pills of any kind for nothing. But..you gotta get up off your duff and exercise. Do something.

      This i pure nonsense. How come Asians don’t do calisthenics everyday and a lot of them live to be 100?!!!
      I sit around most all the day, but watch what i eat. No cakes, no cookies, no milk, no ice cream. No workouts for nothing. But you gotta watch what you eat. Eat less.

    I’d like to point out that when made properly, fried foods shouldn’t have much oil in them at all. It’s when the steam made by the food in the frying process stops pushing out on the oil trying to push in..that’s when you hit problems. Temps too high and you run out of moisture in the food to keep the oil out before it’s done cooking. Temps too low and you won’t make enough pressure to ‘fight back’ and you get oil-logged. If you monitor the heat and do it right, the food will be just fine. It’s not -health- food but it surely won’t be as bad as you think.

    the fact that they said to eat low fat salad dressings proves they don’t know shit. There is always something added to give it flavor like more sodium etc. Read the labels and make good choices and I’m not giving up my Blue cheese dressing.

    • Spinner123

      Who ever eats 2 tablespoons of salad dressing anyway? I usually get by just fine with about a teaspoon, even less.

      muddled thinking. Its important to make rational distinctions of any action, esp what you eat.

        May 28, 2014 at 4:45 pm

        You are right, the same muddled thinking that believes high fructose corn syrup is any different than honey or and other sugar. My point, you humorless shrews, was that everything is bad for you if you eat too much of it. This is a stupid attempt to make people believe that any one item is making them fat and sick rather than the fact that they don’t balance their diet or get enough exercise.

        • captainhurt

          May 29, 2014 at 4:34 pm

          this raises the question: what is “balanced” and what is “enough” ? similar to “moderation” , without context, it means nothing.

          btw , different sugars impact the body dramatically differently as shown in any table of glycemic indexes.
          As dramatically different as table sugar is from glucose, sugar-alcohols go even way beyond these differences with big mouth health issues and bone impacts and digestive bacteria impacts.
          So it is important to make rational distinctions of foods, even within a category, and to classify certain foods as “bad”, esp when other much more healthy options exist.

          As another example of a common failure to make important distinctions, “carbs” are a vague generatlization thats almost useless.

            Btw Sugar is sugar is sugar! That is a fantasy the “health” food industry feed you. Chemically your body can’t know the difference because there IS no difference. The article was titled “Food to NEVER eat” demonizing foods rather than make any of your “important distinctions” in an idiotic “vague generalization”. Thank you for making my point.

    A bit of BS in the article. Whole grain breads aren’t particularly healthier, and actually have higher glycemic indexes than the white bread. High glycemic foods encourage the body to store fat.

    the real advice should be cut back on sugars and starches. Starches are in grains, potatoes, rice, and products based on them – bread, for instance. Get your sugar from fruits (but avoid grapes and most berries) and eat a lot of vegis and meats. The stearic acid in pig and cow fat actually is a strong reducer of cholesterol.

    You lost your credibility when you suggested that we replace white bread with wheat bread. For many people, the gluten in wheat is a problem. In fact, the gmo wheat that is in much of our food is terrible for us. Before you run amok with a bunch of what to eat advice, I suggest you do your homework.

    My younger sister eats Gluten free food and is lactose intolerant. If she eats what she isn’t suppose to she gets badly sick, she throws up and suffers for a week.
    We went to Dubai for my wedding and she ate EVERYTHING and didn’t get sick even once!
    She went to India to study for 6 months and again ate EVERYTHING and never got sick once.
    As soon as she got back and tried eating everything, she suffered with terrible attacks in her stomach.
    The food over here is bad.
    My wife’s from Dubai, she’s been here for only 2 years and now she has a lot of health problems.
    I’ve started investing in Manuka Honey, Chia seeds and wheat grass juice, hoping to cleanse our system and strenghten it.
    I really hope America changes the way our food is processed and sold.

    These foods are not “poison.” They are foods that “some people” over indulge. In moderation, they have no harmful impact on people’s health. But the same can be said about any item that is ingested, even water.

    So you’re basically telling me to ditch this, and then i’ll be healthy. Well, news flash: constantly worrying about what you’re putting into your mouth isn’t healthy either. All the stress will probably make you sick and you’ll die. Can you imagine, forcing yourself to eat supposed health food because some guy on the television or internet told you you’ll become more healthy. Well, its taking a huge toll on your psychological and mental health as well. I know PLENTY of people who are 60+, a bit of a beer belly, eat what they want (some even smoke), and they do biking and walking and never had any complications. This whole “health craze” is complete bull. Your weight is only one component of your overall health. So if you’re happy with yourself eating what you want and your body, then i think that’s a WHOLE lot healthier than someone who forces themselves to eat supposed healthier options to become more healthier.
