Top 10 Worst Foods

I know some of the foods that are not healthy for you but just recently I notice this top worst foods. Fruits and vegetables are the healthy foods to eat but sometimes we will eat foods that worst ever. here are the top 10 worst foods.

1. Chips
One ounce of potato chips has 152 calories and 10 grams of fat (three grams saturated). If you eat just three ounces a week, in one year you'll have consumed 23,400 calories and added about seven pounds to your waistline. That’s from just a couple handfuls – much less than most of us snack on at a time.

Substitute: Rice and popcorn cakes are no longer Styrofoam-like snacks. Now they’re available in many flavors, so you can satisfy a salty craving without hitting the chips. Try Quaker’s Quakes Rice Snacks or Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn Cakes instead – both have less than 100 calories per serving.

2. Non-Dairy Toppings
As luscious as they are, Cool Whip and its kin are mostly corn syrup and hydrogenated vegetable oil − stuff you don’t want floating in your arteries. One tablespoon is 32 calories, but who stops at just one?

Substitute: Top desserts with low-fat vanilla yogurt. The same amount has half the calories, plus a healthy dose of calcium.

3. Doughnuts
White flour, vegetable shortening, white sugar… and deep-fried to boot. One glazed Krispy Kreme packs 200 calories and 12 grams of fat, including heart-stopping saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol. An old-fashioned cake doughnut has 300 calories, 28 grams of carbohydrates and a whopping 19 grams of fat, including five grams of saturated fat and four grams of trans fat. Only 30% of our calories should come from fat, says the American Heart Association. That’s about 65 grams in a 2,000-calorie daily diet. Nosh on a couple doughnuts with your coffee, and you’ve reached your daily fat quota.

Substitute: Keep down the carbs with whole-grain bagels. Half a Pepperidge Farm multi-grain bagel has 125 calories, just three grams of fat and less than four grams of cholesterol-lowering fiber.

4. Fettuccine Alfredo
Strips of pasta drenched with butter, cream and parmesan cheese – what’s not to love? Its fat and calories! A three-ounce serving (about the size of your fist) has 543 calories and 33 grams of fat (19 of which are saturated).

Substitute: Request whole-wheat fettuccine with marinara sauce. One cup of whole-wheat pasta has 197 calories and almost four grams of fiber. And half a cup of marinara sauce has just 92 calories. If whole-wheat pasta isn’t available, ask for spinach pasta instead – it's popular and nutrition-rich.

5. Sausages

Whether you fry them for breakfast or boil 'em in beer for the big game, sausages are a health hazard. A single pork link packs 217 calories and 19.5 grams of fat.

Substitute: Chicken or turkey sausage. Five links of Aidell’s chicken apple sausage have only 100 calories and eight grams of fat (2.5 saturated). Or go vegetarian: Boca Italian sausage made from soy protein contains 130 calories in each 2.5-ounce serving, six grams of fat and 13 grams of lean protein.

6. Fried Chicken
A fried chicken breast has nearly 400 calories and 22 grams of fat. The Colonel wouldn’t be happy to hear this, but those platters of fried fowl have to go.

Substitute: Grilled, skinless chicken breasts are finger-lickin’ good. Rub them with a fiery spice rub – try a green chile-lime seasoning – throw them on the barbecue, and you have great flavor for 189 calories per four-ounce breast.

7. Imitation Cheese in a Can
Some people love this stuff. But they ignore their protesting hearts: Two tablespoons – about the amount you’d put on two crackers – packs 276 calories and 21 grams of fat, 13 grams of which are saturated.

Substitute: Go for the real thing. Soft cheeses like brie have about 100 calories an ounce. Goat cheese is even better: One ounce has 76 calories and five grams of protein.

8. French Fries
One large order (six ounces) of fast-food fries contains 570 calories, half of which are from fat (That's probably why we love them.) If your restaurant order includes a hamburger (such as Burger King’s Whopper), tack on 670 calories and 39 grams of fat.

Substitute: Order kid-size fries instead, which have only 230 calories and 13 grams of fat. At home, try sautéed tempeh, a fermented rice and soy mixture found in the refrigerated health-food section of your grocery store. Just slice, sprinkle with soy sauce, and sauté in a little olive oil until brown. A half cup – about three or four half-inch slices – has 197 calories, is loaded with protein and offers a good source of iron, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B6.

9. Soft White Bread

You may as well have a candy bar. A slice of white bread offers little more than 65 calories of white flour, a simple and rapidly digested carbohydrate that causes your blood sugar to rise and crash, like any simple sugar.

Substitute: For the same number of calories, a slice of whole-wheat bread offers nutty flavor, two grams of heart-healthy fiber, protein and nutrients like selenium, magnesium and potassium.
10. Fried Wontons
These delicate triangles, often filled with meat, shrimp or cream cheese, are deep-fried to a crispy crunch. Unfortunately, just four crab and cream cheese-filled wontons have 311 calories and 19 grams of fat, too greasy a treat for anyone trying to stay fit.

Substitute: For a little crunch, try brown-rice sesame crackers. Five have just 140 calories and six grams of fat, one gram of fiber and a hefty dose of calcium. Just don’t eat the whole bag.

Tesco's finest chocolate cheesecake (from the fresh section) has 19.5 grams of saturated fat per slice! The pack contains two slices. That has got to be the worst food in the world.
