13.  Chinese Food

Harmful Ingredient: Monosodium glutamate

MSG is often associated with Chinese food. It is a flavor enhancer used in other types of foods like soups, processed meats, and more. Research has shown that MSG is one of the worst additives you can consume. It can cause an increase in appetite, ultimately causing you to consume more foods with MSG. Those who eat a lot of MSG foods are more overweight compared to those who have no MSG in their foods.

Eat This Instead: Steamed Veggies and Brown Rice

14. Restaurant Desserts

Harmful Ingredient: Sodium

It’s not just the sugar and calories you need to worry about in desserts.  Most people don’t realize just how high the sodium content really is. Some desserts have a whopping 1,380 calories, 92 grams of fat, 700 milligrams of sodium, 125 grams of carbs, and 85 grams of sugar.

Eat This Instead: A small scoop of sorbet is a low-risk way to satisfy that sweet craving after a meal.

15. Monochromatic Beige Entrees

Harmful Ingredient: Excess calories, sodium, fat

If your plate is made up almost entirely of off-brown hues of deep fried foods then you’re seriously lacking some nutrition. Appetizers, samplers, fried fish, and chips, wings, and others are setting your diet up for failure.

Eat This Instead: Steamed Veggies

16. Energy Drinks

Harmful Ingredient: Sugar, glucose, caffeine

Ever wonder why energy drinks taste like medicinal cough syrup? You’re not really getting any energy out of these drinks. They are overpriced cocktails of chemicals that are loaded with scary artificial sugars and sweeteners.

Drink This Instead: Green Tea. It is all natural and one of the best energy boosters. It has also been shown to boost your metabolism and give you better focus.
