Foods to Avoid during Summer

January 28, 2003

It’s far too easy during the silly season to succumb to bad, bad food. We all know the scenario. It’s late at night and we’ve had a few. All we want is a hamburger or ten thousand chips and it is very, very difficult not to go ahead and buy them. The trick to abstaining from greasy foods is in remembering how bad they make us feel.The wrong foods can make us feel sluggish and even down at times. Their effect is accumulative. Have you ever noticed how when you’ve been on roll of eating really good food you feel positive and motivated? The moment you stray off the path for more than two days, bad food can make you feel very dreary indeed. Who needs that? In an age the facts about junk food speak to us loud, why mess up our own lifestyle and start going down the road of eating bad food just because it’s party season and it’s easy? After all as the saying goes, we are what we eat?and who wants to be thought of as a greasy burger? We are so much more than that.

So, you’ve been to a party, or maybe you’ve actually been to two parties, three bars and now you’re slowly making your way home. It’s 3:30am and you’re standing there eyeing off the greasy delights on display at the ‘open 24 hour takeaway’ and it’s looking very tempting indeed! You want 3 pieces of pizza and a large bag of chips. You want to take them home and eat them while sitting on your couch. Don’t do it. It is a one-way ride to bad health and once you get on that roll you won’t stop. Chips, greasy pizza and strange looking over-oiled pasta dishes are not going to make you feel any better the next day or any day really.

This summer it is important to get a grip on your diet and avoid certain foods for all time. They only seek to cause havoc upon your physique and your moods. Here’s this miss list for this summer.

  • French fries

    The facts are that French fries sound exotic and potatoes seem okay late at night. But the truth is they are just about the worst thing you could imbibe after 4pm let alone late at night. French Fries seem okay, but have you ever wondered why you don’t feel so great afterwards? They are starchy white potatoes cooked in very hot fat. Worse than this they are often flavoured in chemicals and sugar. They seem like the best snack food at the time, but don’t be fooled.

  • Doughnuts

    It’s around 3pm on a Wednesday afternoon and they look so cute and harmless sitting there, all sugar and warmth. Don’t be fooled. Doughnuts are fried bread. They make you feel sluggish and tired. Yes?that feeling is the doughnuts talking.

  • Chips

    Any kind. These are just a packaged version of French fries. There are some health food versions that don’t leave that nasty after-taste and are okay? but really. The original versions are hard to resist. Deep down we all know they are a one-way ticket to more cellulite.
