I'm not doing TOO bad as far as this article is concerned. Occasionally (on special occasions) I have a small steak or small serving of ribs but not the gigantic portions the article mentioned. And I sometimes have a smoked turkey sausage but I seldom eat hot dogs and when I do they are fat free. I don't buy ground beef. I usually eat fish, turkey, chicken, or pork tenderloin. I don't eat carnival/fair food. I seldom if every eat croutons or anything fried. I prefer lighter salad dressings and don't like Caesar or ranch. I don't like bratwurst or mayonnaise either. I don't drink alcohol and I seldom have a sweetened drink. I usually only eat healthy frozen treats. But............... I do have to watch those darned chips and salty snacks. They are my weakness.

Good list, Barbara. I'm with Mimi, though. I can gain weight in summer with fruit which is full of yummy sugar. Who wants a tiny piece of watermelon, but you CAN gain weight on watermelon. And grapes. And cherries. I know.

Thank you, Barbara, for a great list.

# 9 was me: sweet and salty snacks.

I always have gained weight not from junk foods, but from eating TOO MUCH of the healthy foods!
That's why I still journal every day what I eat.
Portion control is what I work on.




I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!

Dont you wish our parents were informed when we were growing up about how bad the food they gave us was. I bet half of us wouldn't be in this shape now!

I at one time ate EVERYTHING on that list!
