The health industry is possibly the biggest industry in all of our history; everyone’s got to eat, after all. It’s also a become a repeating fad—the desire to eat healthier and better each year, renewed as the eve of each previous year comes to end to welcome another year. Most of us desire to have healthier lifestyles. While it may fall as a natural thing for some, for most us, it takes a lot of work to even try to eat better. It is an unfortunate thing that majority of the worst foods for us happen to also be the tastiest. There are a ton of diet fads that come about each year, and each year, a lot of fads die down as well just because they prove to be unsuccessful.
Here’s the most basic idea of it all: if you want to eat healthier, just avoid unhealthy foods. It doesn’t take into account portion sizes and calorie counting. But the idea is that healthy eating should start with the actual foods you are consuming. It’s probably the most difficult thing to do—to rewire our brains into avoiding the things that we already know are bad for us: sugar, salts, processed things, and so many more. It’s no new information, but all those foods are difficult to avoid because they’re so ingrained in our routine, everyday diets. But as with everything, the knowledge is power and if you know the things that are bad for you, you can then take the first steps toward avoiding them. We’ll get you started off with this list of the 20 unhealthiest foods on the planet.
