And isn’t it worth changing eating habits to avoid diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer?
If you really want to improve your health, vitality, appearance and how you feel on a day to day basis, the following list of foods not to eat should be avoided, no matter how tasty and tempting.
What Foods to Avoid and Not to Eat
Since the following unhealthy foods clearly contribute to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke diabetes, arthritis, cancer and senility, it only makes good commonsense to start replacing them ASAP with choices from the list of super healthy foods (see the link below).
- Fruits and Vegetables: Eliminate deep-fried vegetables and vegetables served with butter, cheese or cream sauce. Avoid canned sweetened fruit, fruit juice (one cup has no fiber and as much as 10 teaspoons of sugar) and fruit toppings like whipped cream.
- Refined Grain Products: Cut out all refined grains, found in most breads, pasta, crackers and cereals and all pastries, such as doughnuts, cakes, pies, croissants, muffins, cookies, and snack foods like chips, buttered popcorn and many trail mixes.
- Nuts, Seeds and Beans: Stay away from fatty bean soups and chilies that include sausage, bacon or other high fat meats. And avoid nuts and seeds that are roasted in oil and salted.
- Meats, Fish and Poultry: Eliminate red meat high in saturated fats and other high fat meats like bacon, sausage, hot dogs, ribs, bologna, pepperoni, salami, pastrami and most hamburgers. Also avoid fried fish, chicken and turkey, plus poultry skin.
- High Fat Dairy Products: Avoid high fat cream, cream cheese, sour cream, whipped cream, ice cream, whole milk, 2% reduced fat milk and whole milk yogurt. Only use butter and full fat cheese in small quantities and eat no more than one egg a day.
