                                                        Foods...What to eat and Not to eat

 

        We as humans must eat to survive. We eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks throughout our 24 hour days 365 days a year. With all the food choices out there it can be hard to decipher what foods to eat and what foods to steer away from. Foods such as chicken, steak and fish are all items high in protein and have many benefits on the body, but although they are packed with a great amount of protein we must be careful how we cook these foods because frying and cooking them with fatty oils and high carb and sugar loaded marinades can make these edibles go from healthy to as unhealthy as a McDonalds cheeseburger in a flash. The Best way to cook foods such as these are on the grill, throwing some pepper and salt with non fattening dressings that you can find in the health food isle of your local grocery store will make sure you are serving yourself a meal that will benefit you in many different ways. Foods we should be sure to stay away from are things such as the obviously bad for you fast food chains. Places such as Burger King, Wendy's, Sonic and McDonalds all serve high fat, calorie, carb, sugar and trans fat items loaded with sodium and saturated fats as well. The quarter pounder with cheese hamburger from McDonalds contains 510 calories, 26 grams of fat, 1190 grams of sodium, 40 carbohydrates, and 9 grams of sugar. Foods like that are what add to the problem of obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol in the U.S and around the world. Making the right food conscious decisions and smart moves about what to eat and not to eat is key in maintaining healthy nutrition. Also don't forget that once and a while it is OK to indulge yourself in fatty foods just make sure you don't over do it.
