Foods that are BAD for your health

 Foods that are BAD for your health

Do you know what things make your cholesterol numbers rise? What about triglycerides? Do you know why those numbers are important? Do you have high blood pressure or diabetes? Then I am really speaking to YOU! I didn’t know about the danger until I was forced to pay attention after a lifetime of eating delicious but less healthy foods like fatty steaks, butter, processed lunch meat, potato chips, and other delicious wonderfulness that will probably kill me if I’m not careful. Let me share what I’ve learned about some of my favorites. These foods need to eaten in great moderation:

  • Stir fried takeout
  • Granola bars
  • Shrimp (also bad for gout)
  • Flour tortillas
  • Coconut
  • Canned baked beans with sugar or pork (or both)
  • Alcohol (beer, wine, coolers and hard liquor)
  • Honey or maple syrup
