Bad Food, What Is It?

In today’s day and age with the hustle and bustle and no time for anything you do have to be smart and start eating smarter. In this article I hope to be able to inform at least some people on the hazards of bad food and the importance of eating smarter.

50% of all men will die from heart disease. If that alone isn’t enough to scare you then I don’t know what it is. You have to be very careful, it’s so important that you watch what you eat. It doesn’t matter if you’re a body builder or a secretary you have to be totally concerned with your health.

Crisco or other shortenings instead of lard isn’t a good idea. Use the lard if you’re baking a pie crust or something like that. In all actuality the lard is better for you. At least the lard is natural and not some processed product that will last forever. There isn’t much to say about deep fried foods except that they are really no good for you and you should definitely stay away from them.

Whole wheat flour is way better for you than the refined white stuff that you buy at the grocery store. The white stuff has been bleached with all the healthy stuff removed from it. You might think that tastes will be affected and for the most part you are right because when you get used to it the whole wheat will actually taste better.

Okay now comes the white rice. Whether you like it or not this rice is just not good for you. Actually no rice is good for you but if you absolutely need to eat rice then you should get used to the brown rice.

Need I say much about sugar? I know it’s impossible to cut all sugar out of your diet but its definitely not impossible to cut back. Fructose is a building block for cholesterol. You should keep that in mind when reaching for your next can of soda.

Canned soups are full of salt. Your heart really doesn’t like that much salt. If you must buy canned soup then make sure you buy the low salt ones. Even better would be going to your local deli and having a home made bowl of soup. This bowl is likely to have very little salt.

There are many other foods that are no good for you. I could list them on more and more pages. At some point common sense has to come into play. Were not dummies and we know when the food isn’t good for us. So go ahead and enjoy what you eat but be careful.
