10 Foods You Should NEVER Eat

We all know that there are foods we should avoid, but sometimes we all need to hear the news from an outside source - other than our moms.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has made a list of 10 foods you should NEVER eat. Here's details on the top three.

  • Pepperidge Farm Original Flaky Crust Roasted Chicken Pot Pie has 510 calories and 9 grams of saturated fat, but that is only half a serving!!! So if you eat the entire pie, which seems likely, you're getting about half a day's worth of calories in one sitting.
  • McDonald's Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips - the meat might be specially selected, but they are coated with fried breading just like the familiar, but not-so-premium, Chicken McNuggets.
  • The Cheesecake Factory's 6 Carb Cheesecake may be light in carbs but it packs practically the same amount of calories and fat as their regular Cheesecake.

Other list makers include: Dove Ice Cream, Mrs. Fields Milk Chocolate & Walnut Cookies, Starbucks Venti (20 oz.) Caffè Mocha, Burger King Quad Stacker, Campbell's condensed soups, Chipotle's Chicken Burrito, and the Mint Chip Dazzler available at Häagen-Daaz stores.

To get all the details on all the foods, check out the CSPI's Nutrition Action Newsletter.

good thing the only Cheesecake Factory in town is 45 minutes away, and on the complete opposite side :). Poo about Campbell soups though. I do love me some tomato soup :). could this be because of the sodium content? Cuz if it is, muahahaha, I still get to eat it. Thank youuuuu medical problems that allow me lots of salt :P

Oh wow. The mint chip dazzler at haagen daaz has to be the best thing I have tasted EVER. Of course there is a reason for this: it is horrible for you!

Starbucks make me sad, but I order mine nonfat and w/ no whip (which makes me feel better) but on their site for nutrition it still has a lot of calories :(

I am shocked about the chicken burrito, shocked, I avoid all the other crap, but Chipotle has this fricken reputation for being healthy, glad to know the truth.

I see what the campbell's soup comment was. I only know like 2 things on this list to begin with LOL!

i completely disagree with the starbucks. i used to work there, and as long as you order things with nonfat milk and without the whipped cream, it's not bad for you at all!! venti is a lot of milk though..i tend to go with grande.

Don't be messin' with my Chipotle! How bad can it really be? I get mine with rice, bean, grilled chicken, spicy corn salsa and mild tomato salsa. No cheese, sour cream or guac. Now, dosen't that sound healthy? (please say yes!)

I have no idea how this list is not a record of the last 10 things I've eaten! Not a single thing that I eat is on here...however, I got a little scared when I read "Pepperidge Farm" because I thought it was going to say Geneva cookies - and there's no way I'm giving those babies up.

I can't effin believe that Chipotle is on there! Not that I thought they were, like, HEALTH food or anything, but one of the TEN WORST??? Good thing I'm too poor to eat there now! I remember a few years ago, I took my little brother out and we shared a chicken strip basket from DQ. I started counting calories the next day and nearly died of shock when I found out I consumed 1000 calories in HALF the basket. HALF!!!
