We did Not Fall Victim to the Ultimate Piece of Vegetarian Propaganda of All
Wimpy was a wimp. Popeye was the spinach eating, huge forearmed badass
who kicked the giant Bluto's ass.
If you put 2 and 2 together you can see that
Popeye the Sailor man should have really been called Popeye the Vegetarian
Popeye, vegetarians and meat eaters alike all agree that hamburgers are one
of the most unhealthy foods which you can put in your body.
First of all the protein which is the only positive nutritional aspect in
hamburgers is very low quality. Top that with low quality, zero fiber
bread, cheese, mayo, etc. and hamburgers and cheeseburgers can be extremely high
in calories while being extremely low in nutrients.
Calorically dense, nutrient deficient foods are the theme of the list.
Maybe Popeye was on to something, ug ug ug ug ug.
4. Ben & Jerry's
Scream, You Scream we All Scream for Ice Cream!
If you want to hear a loud scream just listen to a personal trainer respond
to a client who has admitted to have "gotten into" a pint of Ben & Jerry's.
Almost everybody who wants to stay in shape should rely on a balanced diet to
be healthy and carry a desirable weight. Ben & Jerry's is the perfect way
to sabotage your diet to the point that it could take days to recover.
The problem with ice cream is that it is so good. As an example, one servings of most
Ben & Jerry's ice cream can have as much as 30 grams of fat. When is the
last time you ate just 1 serving?
Top this off with the fact that the usual time for ice cream consumption is
after dinner. Not that eating after dinner is bad, but eating 30+ grams of
fat and tons of sugar after dinner will drive your caloric intake through the
roof and if you're lucky you'll finish the whole pint and be able to wear those
extra large pants which have been too big in the past to fit in to.
3. French Fries / Onion Rings
the Wonderful Picture on the right looks Appetizing to you, you Probably have a
If you eat healthy or think like a personal trainer, that picture looks like you're about to
take a dump on your physical health.
As with all fried foods our favorite companions to hamburgers are extremely
high in fat as well as sodium.
What makes onion rings and French fries so bad is they take 2 normally
healthy and nutritious natural foods potatoes and onions, and completely strip
them of all their beneficial nutrients.
This creates which is destined to be deposited as body fat stores in your
2. Chinese Food
blame Chinese food for being horribly unhealthy. Blame the United States
for making Chinese food unhealthy.
If you know Chinese food you will know that the food we eat and Chinese food
in America isn't really Chinese food at all.
The American version is a supersized grease fest which is loaded with sodium
and likely MSG. Chinese food can also be misleading. If you see
green what you really are seeing is grease.
Even vegetarian dishes are usually loaded with fat calories and lacking most
of the nutrients the vegetables once had before they were cooked in the wok
which has been building up wonderful trans fatty acids over the days and
possibly weeks in between cleanings.
All this is not to mention the meat! Oh yes, the meat! What is
it? Pigeon, rat, scraps? Only the people who own the restaurants
know but we all know crystal clear that Chinese food is a great way to pack on
some body fat.
you heard the term "nutritional value" when you were younger, doughnuts were
probably not mentioned very often.
Why is this? Well, doughnuts have absolutely zero nutritional value.
They are made from refined sugars and grains which are stripped completely of
any beneficial vitamins and minerals.
To top it all off, doughnuts are fried in oil which has probably been reused
many times. The oil is is high in saturated fat and trans fatty acids
which soak right into the nutrition devoid dough.
This creates the perfect unhealthy, fattening food for every nuclear safety
inspector working in Springfield as well as anybody who wants to get or remain
completely out of shape.
dogs are not all they cracked up to be. You may have heard that hot dogs
are made of pig guts, and garbage thrown together from the slaughterhouse floor
but that is a myth. It still doesn't stop the average American who eats 60 hot
dogs a year!
The thing about hot dogs is the macronutrient nutrition is not as bad as some
of the foods on the list. Without the bun they are mostly protein and some
are low fat. Caramelized onions, ketchup and more unhealthy toppings can
make hot dogs rack up the calories.
What really gets hot dogs on the list is that even they may not be the worst
food to make you fat, they may just give you cancer! Hot dogs as well as
other cured meats contain nitrates. While harmless by themselves nitrates
in our bodies can eventually be converted into nitrosamines which are powerful
You may want to think about this next time you grab a dog at the ballpark.
Compare the Above Pie Charts with Something
Kashi go lean cereal with milk is a prime example of
something healthy. Notice the balance. The carbohydrate calories is
about triple that of the fat calories which is low, but not too low. When
fat is too low the meal may not be satisfying enough and also be missing
essential fats, which Kashi has.
This is not to mention fiber. All the foods
above have negligible fiber. Dietary fiber is what keeps our digestive
system running properly as well as prevents certain forms of cancer.
