Everyone knows that fatty foods are bad for your health.
Obesity and being overweight is one of the most widespread problems in America, and fatty foods take a large share of the blame. However, it is not easy to give up fatty foods that are delicious to taste and appeal to the taste buds of human beings almost universally.
It can be difficult to resist these high cholesterol foods, especially when a person is hungry. The regret sets in once the “hunger” has been fully satiated.
Pizza and Burgers
Pizza and hamburgers are two of the largest selling fatty foods in the world. Pizza includes generous quantities of cheese, which is extremely rich in fats. Pizza toppings may include fried pieces of meat, which further add to the fat content. Oven-fresh pizza can tempt even the most diet conscious people, and just one pizza slice can mean an excessive intake of fat molecules and calories for the whole day.
Similarly, the burger patty is usually made of red meat such as beef, which contains high cholesterol. The patty is often times deep fried, and consumes high amounts of edible oil. The burger also includes a liberal layering of cheese slices when ordered, which can make it a mouth-watering delight.
Potato Chips and Fries
The potato is one of the healthiest foods. However, when it is used to make potato chips and French fries or fried potato wedges, its fat content augments considerably. The real problem with potato chips and fries is that it is difficult to eat just a limited quantity. The temptation to eat these fried foods is so high that many people do not stop until the entire quantity is consumed.
Ice Cream and Chocolates
Ice cream and chocolates are probably the best selling food products in the world. The sugar content of both these foods is remarkable. Ice creams are made with fat-rich milk, and have a very high fat content overall. Chocolates also include fats and excessive amounts of sugar to neutralize the bitterness of cocoa. One ice cream scoop or half a bar of chocolate is enough to spoil a day’s balanced diet and provide more fats than required for the entire day.
Fried Chicken, Steak, Ribs
Meats naturally contain fats and cholesterol. When they are cooked, or deep fried, in oil the fat content increases significantly. It can be difficult for any meat-eater to resist these hugely popular and delicious fatty foods. When they are grilled though, much of the fat is cooked off of the meat; this not the case when frying. The only way to resist the temptation of these foods is to turn into a vegetarian, but it is an impractical proposition for most people. And eating some meat daily is essential.
Cakes, Donuts, and Pastries
Just like chocolates and ice cream; cakes, donuts, and pastries make great desserts that are hard to resist.
However, they are also included among the fattest foods that most people will find it impossible to give up. The aroma of these freshly baked products is enough to induce hunger. Cakes and pastries are great to eat, difficult to give up, and add excessive calories and fat to the daily dietary intake.
