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.

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!
