While obesity can be attributed to many factors, the food we ingest tops the list. And not necessarily just the food, but how much of that food we are eating.
While some people may have strong willpower and are able to just eat a little and walk away, the majority of people don’t. It is actually better if they just “steer clear” of fattening foods and they can feel less stress.
Another major problem is the fact that some foods are disguised as healthy when in fact, they are fattening. And when a person reads the ingredients, they can be even more confused.
So in today’s post, we are going to help you know what foods in this world are helping you get fatter. These are 15 of the most fattening foods in the world.
#1 Most Fattening Foods: Soda Pop
I won’t name brands, but soda pop has no nutrition and if you think it “quenches” your thirst, you are sadly mistaken.
The high sugar content can actually make you thirst more. Not only does soda pop make you fatter, but it has also been associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
So skip the soda pop and drink water instead.
#2 Most Fattening Foods: Smoothies From Fast Food Establishments
Here is one of those foods that has healthy claims and attributes, but…
After all, they have fruit and yogurt, so they should be good for you right?
Sure, they are good for you if you have doctor’s orders to gain weight quickly. They will make you fat because the sugar content is outrageous.
1 20 ounce smoothie has over 1,000 calories.
#3 Most Fattening Foods: Potatoes
Potatoes of all formats do increase weight. They are a starch and when they enter the body, starch turns into sugar.
Does this mean you should cut out all potatoes?
I would say not, but do understand that they are not the best food when your objective is to lose weight.
#4 Most Fattening Foods: Pecan Pie
But it has pecans… It must be good for you!
I wonder how many people actually fall for that?
Sure, pecans are a great thing if eaten alone, but when you add loads of butter and sugar to those pecans and bake them in a pie shell, you are smelling pure obesity.
And if you are like me, how can we stop at just 1 slice?
If I smell pecan pie, I normally run the opposite direction or my weight scale will scream at me.
#5 Most Fattening Foods: Alcoholic Drinks
Be it a Margarita, Rum & Coke, or Irish Coffee, you are drinking yourself to obesity.
Alcoholic drinks, including beer, are quite fattening. And because of the great taste and the “buzz” many people cannot stop at 1.
Many of these drinks have the #1 item on this list and almost all have high levels of sugar.
#6 Most Fattening Foods: Those Massive Burgers
Again, I am not going to name brands, but there are loads of fast food establishments as well as normal restaurants that offer customers extremely massive burgers…
- 2 or more beef patties
- gobs of cheese
- and maybe some fattening bacon or chili
Now, I see nothing wrong with a simple hamburger, but when you start going overboard as if you were hosting an eating show on the food network, be prepared to get fat.
#7 Most Fattening Foods: A Plethora Of Baked Sweets
Cake, pie, cookies, etc…
Yes, we love them all but they hold no nutritional value and can become like an addictive drug.
They all contribute to weight gain, obesity, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes because many people overindulge and eat way more of this food than the calories they can burn in one day.
I’m not telling you to always deny yourself… You don’t want to upset that sweet baking family member, but you need to keep control and just say no to extras.
#8 Most Fattening Foods: Churros
This Spanish delight is extremely fattening.
Simply put, it is rolled dough that is deep fat fried which is dipped in a cinnamon and sugar mixture and then dipped in chocolate.
Yes, I know… My mouth is watering too and I feel like I gained 20 pounds just thinking about falling into my temptation and eating a churro.
Somehow, I have a feeling the devil himself created these delights.
#9 Most Fattening Foods: Ice Cream
While it may seem like a healthy alternative, the majority of marketed ice creams are chock full of sugar.
If you are searching for ice cream, look for brands that are low on added sugar.
#10 Most Fattening Foods: White Carbohydrates
Such things as white rice, white bread, and pasta are loaded with carbohydrates. These carbs create a problem with your internal system…. They tell your body to burn the carbs for energy and leave the fat alone.
The natural reaction???
Using a wonderful botanical mixture, iGalen offers an all-natural carbohydrate manager called Emulin. Emulin was created by 2 time Nobel Prize nominee, Dr. Joseph Ahrens.
In days of old, humans would receive Emulin from the fruits and vegetables they ingested. But because of modern day food processing, Emulin was erased for the biggest part.
Thanks to Dr. Ahrens and iGalen, you can now get Emulin. Just click here to learn more.
#11 Most Fattening Foods: Fried Chicken
It isn’t so much the chicken itself that is fattening, it is all that oil used to fry the bird in. You can still enjoy chicken, but it is much less fattening if you grill or bake your chicken.
#12 Most Fattening Foods: Chicken Fried Steak
Here is a favorite in the Southern United States and it is common that people who eat this on a regular basis to be overweight.
You take a steak and pound it thin. You batter it and fry it in oil. That in itself is fattening but when you top it with all that gravy, you not only have fattening, you have a good source for a heart attack.
#13 Most Fattening Foods: Milk Chocolate
You may have heard that chocolate is good for you…
That is the raw, unprocessed chocolate. And dark chocolate with little sugar added is a great immunity booster and can be a benefit to your health.
But when it comes to milk chocolate… This is the chocolate the majority of candy bars are with… Milk chocolate is fattening and really has no health benefits. Milk chocolate has a lot of added sugar and it is high in fat content.
#14 Most Fattening Foods: Most Processed Foods
Sure, they may be fast and easy… Those highly processed microwavable meals. Or cans of food items you can cook in 1 minute.
These items are normally loaded with calories and also high in sodium which we all know, is bad for your heart.
Remember that fast isn’t always the best.
#15 Most Fattening Foods: Pizza
Who doesn’t like ordering out a large pizza with lots of cheese and full of your favorite ingredients?
I see nothing wrong with doing so occasionally, but some people carry the pizza craze to extremes.
And yes, that pizza you order is fattening. The dough, the cheese, and the processed meats all added together multiply to heavy calories… And what else does the majority of people order with that pizza?
Usually, it is a huge 2 liter of #1 or a 12 pack of #5. So you get a double dose of obesity makers.
Now I want to make it quite clear that I am not trying to take fun from your life… But is being fat fun?
There is no reason you cannot enjoy some of these items as long as you understand the consequences if you over-indulge.
And remember that Emulin is made to help you manage the carbohydrates that do enter your body. Especially those refined carbs that have no nutrition value at all.
What’s more, Emulin is safe for your whole family. It will help with weight management, is an anti-inflammatory and one of the strongest anti-oxidants on Earth. Just go here to learn more and if you want to get Emulin and/or help your friends and family purchase Emulin, contact us here.
