Ahh man...almost all of those are my favorites! Probably why I'm in this mess in the firstplace, lol. I've stopped eating them for now because I'm determined to lose this weight, but eventually I'll be sneaking some of these foods back into my diet, in moderation of course!

I think if I avoid foods that are bad I don't even like , I am doing pretty good. However cheescake, the serving is always too large. any thing over 1 square inch is excessive!

I new all these already, but I will still eat them occasionally anyways. I would eat a piece of cake or muffin in the morning occasionally and someone would say your eating cake so early. I always said what's the difference between this and a doughnut except the deep frying of one.

If you make it yourself with lot's of carrots and pineapple and no frosting. I think it would be better than regular cake. replace the oil with apple sauce and voila!

I LOVE the boneless wings from Buffalo Wild Wings... I wonder how many calories in those??? I usually only eat about 4, and then have a garden salad on the side lol.... But I know it sounds weird, but when I have a "wings" craving, I'll take some Smart Pop 100 calorie mini bags of popcorn and sprinkle on some hot sauce.. it works!!! and kicks up the popcorn a notch!! I think I got the idea off the back of a bottle of hot sauce... but I love it!

Good article!!!

I just had some Ruby Tuesday's buffalo wings this weekend and they were DELICIOUS but this is like a twice a year thing for me. :) Good things most of the options on there don't sound too appealing to begin with.

Where is the emoticon for a mouth dropped open and bulging eyes! Guess this will have to do. emoticon I love nachos and that makes me wanna cry. emoticon And the milkshake thing is another crazy one! Wow. Why does fat have to taste so good. Thank god there are less damaging alternatives. That's just sad and wrong. I'm thinking of all the times I had a milkshake WITH the burger and fries!

Fact: however long it'll take you to reach your goals, just remember that the time's going to pass anyway, so either you'll stay where you are now, or you'll be the "you" you dream about today:)

Thank you for posting this. I really could eat any of these items you listed. I crave junk food. But somedays it is a little easier than others....I don't buy the stuff anymore, therefore, I cannot eat it.

Wow, sadly that list made me hungry. I am still not over "missing" some of my favorite foods. I have found a wonderful reduced calorie carrot cake recipie (it even has REAL carrots) unlike most carrot cakes. There is also a really healthy muffin recipe that tastes great (as long as you only eat one small muffin, and they don't need butter)... It is called the Bob's Red Mill Bran Flax Muffin - there are several versions of this recipe on spark recipes... I don't use the nuts - they are not necessary and they add lots of calories.

MACHELLE, The muffins used to get me, till I figured
out that at least for me, muffins are not an 'ok'
food for my eating plan! Costco has these HUGE muffins, each one enough for two people, and I used
to eat them, till I found myself gaining, each time I
did. My hubby still eats them, I just don't ever buy
them for the family any more. emoticon

9 Foods That Can Make Anyone Fat
Quality Health News

You watch your weight. You cut back on snacks. You even hit the gym twice a week. But no matter how hard you try, the pounds come creeping back. The culprit? It could be one of these inflationary foods. Each is so fattening that just the occasional indulgence could result in major weight gain--even if you do everything else right. Read on to uncover nine foods that can make anyone fat.
1. Muffins. Eating a muffin on your way to work may seem like a healthy breakfast, but most store-bought versions are simply cake in disguise. A Starbucks Blueberry Muffin contains 430 calories, an Au Bon Pain Corn Muffin has 530, and a Dunkin' Donuts Chocolate-Chip Muffin packs a whopping 630.
The bottom line: If you eat one of these three times a week, you could gain one to two pounds a month.
2. Cinnamon rolls. These sweet, sticky treats are favorites in shopping malls and airports across the country. But a regular habit could be enough to declare war on your waistline. A classic Cinnabon Roll, for example, tips the scales at a staggering 730 calories.
The bottom line: If you frequent the food court for one each week, prepare to gain an extra 10 pounds a year.
3. Onion rings. How bad could onions be? Well, it's the batter, the breading, and the deep-frying that make this crispy side order so diet-deadly. Jack in the Box's version has 500 calories, while Nathan's Famous Onion Rings weighs in at 745.
The bottom line: Eating one order of onion rings a week could translate to an annual weight gain of seven to 10 pounds.
4. Nachos. Fast-food nachos are usually one of the most fattening choices on the hors d'oeuvres menu. Taco Bell's Mucho Grande Nachos boasts 1320 calories, while On the Border's Stacked Border Nachos contains a mind-boggling 2,740.
The bottom line: With these kinds of calories, you could gain one-third to two-thirds of a pound in a single sitting.
5. Buffalo wings. These sports-bar staples are coated in butter and hot sauce, deep-fried to a crisp, then slathered in blue-cheese dressing. Is it any surprise that they can instantly undo virtually any diet? Denny's Buffalo Wings have 974 calories per plate, while Ruby Tuesday's popular appetizer boasts a whopping 1,090.
The bottom line: Indulging in just once plateful a month is all it takes to pack on four extra pounds per year.
6. Cheese fries. As if classic French fries weren't fattening enough, these cheese-smothered versions are positively calorific. One of the worst offenders is Outback Steakhouse's Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing, which contains a stratospheric 2,900 calories.
The bottom line: This appetizer can pack on the pounds almost overnight. In fact, you're almost guaranteed to gain an extra three-quarters of a pound every time you eat one.
7. Chicken pot pie. Once you look at the nutritional label, this classic comfort food seems anything but soothing. Pepperidge Farm's Chunky Chicken Parmesan Premium Pot Pie contains 520 calories, while Kentucky Fried Chicken's version packs 770.
The bottom line: Eat this diet-buster once a week, and you could weigh seven to 10 pounds more this time next year.
8. Carrot cake. It's hard to believe that only one slice of anything could undermine an otherwise healthy eater, but with carrot cake, it's almost guaranteed. A slice from Denny's contains 799 calories, while the Whole Foods version has 830.
The bottom line: Is this decadent dessert really worth the caloric cost? Just a slice a week could cause you to gain one pound a month.
9. Milkshakes. These beverages may seem benign, but don't be fooled: Milkshakes often contain more calories than banana splits or hot-fudge sundaes. A large Strawberry Milkshake from Dairy Queen contains 980 calories, while a Jack in the Box Chocolate Malted Crunch version has 1,310.
The bottom line: Sip at your own risk: Just two a week could make you gain two to three pounds every month.
