9 Foods You Should Never Eat

Many popular foods are a recipe for diabetes and high cholesterol.

You may have eaten them for years but after you learn exactly what they are … and what they are doing to your body, you may never even think of eating or drinking them again!

So here they are … the Top 9 Foods You Should Never Eat … if you wish to “live long and prosper” …


9. Sugary Drinks

9. Sugary Drinks

There is an excellent book (still in print) called “Pure, White and Deadly”, originally published in 1972 by British physiologist and nutritionist, John Yudkin. The book was a sensation at the time, because the author argued convincingly that added sugar was the worst ingredient in the modern diet.

The sugar industry was in uproar as you can imagine, and it must be said that some sources of sugar are worse than others.

However one fact is universally agreed … sugary drinks are particularly harmful.


Basically it’s because for some reason (poorly understood at present), our brains don’t appear to register liquid calories as food.Thus when you consume large quantities of sugary drinks you may end up massively increasing your total calorie intake.

If this becomes a habit, and the quantities remain high … serious damage can result as sugar can drive insulin resistance and is strongly implicated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. And of course, high sugar intake is notoriously associated with type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Get in the habit of drinking lots of water instead.

The U.S. National Academy of Sciences and Medicine recommends:

About 15.5 cups (3.7 litres) of fluids a day for men.

About 11.5 cups (2.7 litres) of fluids a day for women.

Develop a liking for black tea and coffee (virtually calorie free) … or on a hot day, soda water with a slice of lemon.


8. Pizza

8. Pizza

Totally delicious … but commercially produced Pizza is arguably the king of
junk foods.


Simply because commercial pizza’s are loaded with flavour enhancing unhealthy ingredients such as highly refined dough, salt, tons of cheese, tomato sauce and heavily processed meat.

Just check out the calories and other bad stuff in a large Dominos pepperoni pizza:

Calories (per slice) = 380

Fat (per slice) = 13g

Carbs (per slice) = 48g

Home made pizzas on the other hand can be very healthy … especially if made with carefully selected wholesome ingredients.


7. White Bread

7. White Bread

Not too bad if you only eat the occasional slice … but eaten in large quantities, commercial white breads are extremely unhealthy.

This is because they are mainly made from refined wheat, which is very low in fibre and essential nutrients

White bread is frequently associated with rapid spikes in blood sugar which causes hunger pangs resulting in overeating.

If you must eat bread regularly, go for whole grain.

Ezekiel bread (brown sprouted grain bread) is attracting much favourable attention at the moment from nutritionalists.

Give it a try … its delicious!


6. Fruit Juice

6. Fruit Juice

This may be a surprise to many as fruit juice is often assumed to be healthy.

Don’t get me wrong … there are good things in fruit juices such as antioxidants and vitamin C.

The problem is most fruit juices are loaded with sugar … many in fact having as much sugar as Coke and Pepsi.

Some do have certain health benefits (such as pomegranate and blueberry juices) but for a serious weight loss enthusiast … these should be considered as occasional supplements (a treat) and not a regular part of your diet.


5. Sweetened Breakfast Cereals

5. Sweetened Breakfast Cereals

Bad mamajama!

Especially popular with young children and frequently eaten with milk, breakfast cereals (generally processed cereal grains … wheat, oats, corn, rice etc) are extremely high in added sugar.

Some particularly reprehensible varieties are so sweet they could be compared with candy.

If fruit or some other totally natural breakfast meal isn’t to your families liking, try to choose breakfast cereals that are high in fibre and low in added sugar.

Or … why not make your own oak porridge from scratch?


4. Fried and Grilled Food

4. Fried and Grilled Food

Frying and grilling are very unhealthy ways to cook food.

Although highly palatable … they are generally packed with calories and when food is cooked under extreme heat, many unhealthy compounds are released.

These include acrylamides, acrolein, heterocyclic amines, oxysterols, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and advanced glycation end products (AGEs).

Many of these chemicals are carcinogen (cancer causing) and have also been linked with heart disease.


3. Cookies, Cakes & Pastries

3. Cookies, Cakes & Pastries

These would make most peoples list of top 10 bad foods as they are all notoriously full of refined sugar, refined wheat flour and added fats.

Often made with shortening (any fat that is a solid at room temperature and used to make crumbly pastry and other food products … but generally butter or margarine) cookies, cakes and pastries are almost always high in unhealthy trans fats.

They have almost no essential nutrients and contain copious calories, and many preservatives.

If you must have a dessert, try a “Triple Zero Vanilla Greek Yogurt”, fresh fruit or dark chocolate.


2. Ice Cream

2. Ice Cream

This entry in our hall of shame breaks my heart because I just love … ice cream!

Now kids seriously … ice cream may be delicious stuff but once again its loaded with sugar.

Like fries and potato chips (in section 8 above), ice cream is very high in calories and hard to stop eating once you’ve started.

If you can, try to track down the healthier brands.

Why not make your own ice cream … using fresh fruit and a lot less sugar.


1. High Calorie Coffee

1. High Calorie Coffee

Coffee in itself is one of the healthiest beverages you can drink.

Its full of antioxidants and many studies have concluded that drunk in moderation, coffee has been shown to lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s Disease.

However, its all the glop that gets put into coffee that causes the problems … creamers, syrups, additives, and a whole host of other sugary bad guys that turn it into an incredibly high calorie, unhealthy drink.

For example, Starbucks “White Chocolate Crème Frappuccino” weighs in at 510 calories and its “Gingerbread Latte with Oat Milk Venti” has 523 calories … with over 14 teaspoons of sugar in every serving.

A heart attack in the making!

If your a coffee lover like me, develop a liking for plain black coffee instead … you really start to taste the real flavour of the beans, although admittedly it is an acquired taste.

You can add small amounts of heavy cream or full-fat milk if you must as a treat.


Although the Western diet is notorious for junk food, ready meals and sugar laden “goodies” … the fact is you can still steer clear of the processed, high-sugar items mentioned in this article if you manage your diet carefully.

Focus on nutrient dense, healthy, low calorie natural foods and you’ll be well on your way to controlling your eating habits.

Work hard on your chosen weight loss strategy … be determined to make it succeed and you will achieve a better relationship with your food, your body and your health.
