The 10 Absolute Worst Foods

Haagen DazsThey are fattening and bad for your heart plus they offer absolutely no nutritional value at all.

  1. Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie is absolutely artery crust in a box. Just half of the pie has 520 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat. That is just half the pie and the pie is marketed as a meal in itself; the whole pie.
  2. Going out to eat? Going to Olive Garden? Whatever you decide to get do not order the Tour of Italy. Yes you get 3 meals in one and that is exactly what you get three meals of calories and fat in one entree. 1450 calories and 33 grams of saturated fat are in this meal. And that isn’t including the breadstick with 150 calories that you are going to eat. Or the two or three breadsticks.
  3. Progresso Traditional Vegetable Classics and Rich and Hearty Soups have so much salt you are best to just stay away from them.
  4. Fan of ice cream for your sweet tooth? Stay far, far away from Haagen-Dazs because in one container of Haagen Dazs you have your entire days’ worth of saturated fat and cholesterol. [high cholesterol foods]
  5. Again if you are going out to eat and you choose the Cheesecake Factory you are obviously going to, most likely, indulge in a little dessert. Granted everything on their desert menu is probably the equivalent of a few quarter-pounders with cheese but the Cheesecake Factory Chris’ Outrageous Chocolate Cake will provide you with 1550 calories. And that is just in one piece! In one piece alone you will have 1550 calories and 43 grams of saturated fat. Stay away. Stay far, far away.
  6. Smoothie fan? Stay away from Grape Expectations II made from Smoothie King. They have 550 calories in a 20 ounce size smoothie.
  7. Movies? Popcorn? Pop? If you’re planning a night in and ordering pizza, maybe having some popcorn with the show, be aware that Pop Secret popcorn has 9 grams of saturated fat in one bag.
  8. This one disappointed us the most because we are definitely huge Starbucks fans. The Starbucks Venti Cafe Mocha has 410 calories and 10 grams of saturated fat. In a drink.
  9. Chipotle Chicken Burrito has 1050 calories and 17 grams of saturated fat. That is as many as are in two 6-inch Subway steak and cheese sandwiches and a scoop of ice cream for dessert.
  10. This one was another disappointment but we saw it coming; Cold Stone Creamery Gotta Have It Founder’s Favorite has 1600 calories and 42 grams of saturated fat.
