It's a such a bummer to have all those lovely green leaves of lettuce and mix of your fave veggies become completely pointless in a diet. But that's what happens when you use any salad dressing that's supposed to keep you slim. They're loaded with extra ingredients like sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and loads of artificial coloring.
For starters, pretzels are super-easy to overeat and make them very tempting snacks. But they aren't even healthy ones either - those twisted knots have very little amounts of protein, fiber, or the good kind of fat. So this means when you're inhaling around 20 of them, it's just straight carbs into your gut for nothing.
Cheap ramen is more than just a bad college meal - it can actually hurt you in the long run. Any of these pre-cooked noodle meals might increase the risk of cardiometabolic syndrome. That means heart disease, diabetes, stroke, or even weirder stuff to women's bodies caused from the styrofoam containers
Yeah, maybe it is time you should consider a vegetarian dinner. Corn-fed beef makes a lovely acidic home in cows' stomach, which are awesome for bacteria like e.coli. Even if you go and buy grass-fed or free-range beef, you're still allowing for the (already massive) deforestation of the planet.
Remember all those YouTube videos from a while back where people were pouring soda on the ground and seeing the pavement break apart afterward? That should be more than enough evidence of how many artificial ingredients those kinds of drinks have. A nice matcha tea is a good switch if you still need that pick-me-up.
People still think that these airy cakes are still a healthy alternative to other crunchy snacks and they're getting lied to. Your blood sugar levels will go off the charts from the high carbs that come from them. Rice cakes have a glycemic rating of 91 - pure glucose sits at 100.
Fro-yo is a big no-go for nutritionists because they're not fooled by the "not-ice cream" spin put on the dessert. Besides loads of sugar pumped into the yogurt, the non-organic milk used to make it is also filled with hormones that will mess with your body. That just ends up increasing weight gain, and who knows what other weird things to your body.
Spreads can be suspect for your health in general, especially since people always go for that butter alternative. Yeah, steering clear of animal fat is cool, but you have a lot of other options. Just look for the ones made from natural sources or come from reduced fat.
Besides being just large slices of empty calories, there are plenty of reasons why salami or your fave deli cut is something to be avoided.

The boxed kind is normally made from processed grain, so you are already playing with suspect goods. The claims on the box are not true half of the time either. This means they barely have any protein, fiber, or healthy fats - but a whole lotta carbs.
Next time you make a PB&J, the phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies. You see, They replace the diet peanut butter with weird kinds of sugar and other additives your body does not want. So basically you're trading calories for carbs and sugar and what's the point in that?
Just from a health standpoint, imported shrimp is filled with antibiotics and chemicals. If you want to be a responsible human being, these are just bad because they are not sustainable at all. That shouldn't stop you from finding good sustainable shrimp, but it's tough - 94 percent of US shrimp is imported.
The word "artificial" should be a dead giveaway to why this shouldn't be used. What it lacks in calories it also does in any nutritional value. There's also new studies that link these sweeteners to diabetes, so it's best to just steer clear.
