Foods with high fat content are bad for you. Especially now in summertime, nosh staples such as ice cream, cake, and soda call out to us. Of course, don’t totally deny yourself. Have some fun, but remember, eat and drink these foods in moderation. Your health depends on it.
Food tips to avoid getting Fat
Stay away from donuts. OK, OK, but just stop at one. A glazed doughnut has 260 calories. The whole box packs 3,120 calories. A 200-pound man would have to run about 25 miles just to work that off.
Ice Cream Has Lots of Fat
Many noshers claim that ice cream is healthy because it contains calcium. But did you know that a half cup of ice cream contains 230 calories! Instead, try the yogurt. It is delicious and many flavors contain only 100 calories per half cup.
Fasten your seat belt because 15 potato chips contain 160 calories. Do you know anyone that can stop eating at 15 chips? Not I, and neither do you. Eating just the chips is boring, right? of course. So you gotta dip them. Two tablespoons of standards dips contain 60 calories and 5 grams of fat. Now you gotta eat one of those extra large bags of chips plus dips while watching the ball game and soon after it ends, you will have to go get yourself a custom tailored burlap sack for pants. Instead, eat low fat popcorn. Six cups contain 100 calories.
The average 12-ounce can of beer has 150 calories. The average guys drinks 2-5 beers at a sitting, especially watching a ball game. Those calories add up big time. Instead drink light beer. There are several delicious light beers on the market and they average 100 calories per can.
I know you have to eat hot dogs, it’s the American pastime together with baseball! Just so you know, one cheese dog has 390 calories and 8 grams of “bad” fat. Instead, eat the peanuts. This food tastes great, is high in protein, fiber, and good fat.
Fat Red Meat
Did you know that big, juicy steak that covers your plate can kill you dead. A 16-ounce prime rib steak has more than 1,000 calories and 37 grams of very “bad” fat. And we re not even counting the appetizers and side dishes that go with it. Instead, choose the lean meat from the menu, such as sirloin, tenderloin, or flank steak. The piece should be the size of your fist, not your plate.
Stay healthy by avoiding foods high in fat content. There are many delicious low-fat alternatives on the market.
Avoid the onset of chronic debilitating diseases and enjoy a high quality lifestyle.
