Are you aware that millions of Americans eat some of the worst foods in the world? Some of these foods include fast food as well as many others. There are many websites on the internet that give you health information, but if you are looking for an easy guide to feeling better and having your best life, try to eliminate the following foods from your diet at all costs.

1. Donuts - these are loaded with sugar and are fried at extremely high temperatures. They also contain between 200 and 300 calories each!

2. Soda - one can of soda contains about 10 teaspoons of sugar! This is a very large amount. Diet sodas are even worse because they contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame. This sweetener is highly processed and can lead to other problems down the road. All of this sugar in soda can eventually lead to tooth decay and other health problems such as diabetes. This is one of the best things to cut out of your diet that can improve your health. Even cutting back, has its heath benefits. I have not had soda in over 4 years!

3. French Fries - Any type of fried food is heated at very high temperatures in a variety of vegetable oils. These oils can lead to clotting, inflammation, weight gain, and even cancer. Next time you go to a fast food restaurant, take notice of the deep fryer in the back. You will see just how these are made and perhaps you will change your mind. I don’t want to eat something that has been soaking in several hundred degree hot grease.

I know people (including myself), that have made these simple changes and start to feel the benefits relatively quickly. Even if you don’t eliminate these from your diet, replacing some servings with something healthier might be a good choice. Simply making the choice to have a water instead of a Coke or a piece of fruit instead of fries is a start to a healthier lifestyle.
