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.
