Most people consume these foods on a daily basis but do not know how unhealthy they are.

1. DIET SODA

It would be best not to drink soda at all.  But if you do, drink regular soda instead of diet soda. Many believe that drinking diet soda will help them lose weight, but in fact, the opposite is true.  The artificial sugar it contains will make your sugar cravings worse and make you even hungrier, which will ultimately make you gain weight.  This leads into the next item on the list…

2. ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERSsource

Artificial sweeteners not only lead to weight gain, but they also affect how your body processes glucose. Using fake sugar can cause a spike in blood glucose levels. And if you are concerned about the environment, note that they may also harm marine life.

3. CREAM BASED SALAD DRESSING

If you are trying to be healthy by eating salad, do not drown it in cream based dressing. These dressings are high in processed oils, preservatives, and bad fats.

4. MICROWAVE POPCORN

Popcorn is actually is a very good snack.  However, microwave popcorn is incredibly unhealthy. It is full of sodium, trans fats, and calories. The fake butter flavoring in these packets is toxic. Pop your own kernels and season them yourself. You will not only make a healthier snack, but you will also save some time and money.

5. AMERICAN CHEESE

It truly does not deserve to be called cheese – it is simply a cheese product. It is just a blend of milk fat, whey, salt and protein concentrates. Try eating soft cheeses instead, like mozzarella.

6. CANNED SOUP OR VEGETABLES

They have very high sodium content and high acidity. Many cans are lined with Bisphenol A (BPA), which is a synthetic estrogen that can affect your body’s hormone system.  BPA has been linked to infertility, breast cancer, obesity, and diabetes. A test of 78 canned foods found the chemical in 71 of them; and the highest content of it was discovered in canned coconut milk, soup and vegetables – especially in canned tomatoes.

7. WHITE BREAD
