20 Foods You Must Avoid in 2016

Fast Food Burger

1. Fast food burgers and fries

Look: it’s 2016, and if you’re still eating cheap sloppy hamburgers, super-sized French fries, and gummy chocolate shakes on the regular, it’s time to stop. If you maybe eat this once in a great while, it’s possibly acceptable, but overloading your body with absurdly high levels of saturated fat, sodium, and sugar does you absolutely no good. Plus, the food is cheap for a reason — it’s highly processed from some of the lowest grade raw materials available. That means beef loaded with hormones and antibiotics, potatoes doused in pesticides, and dairy products produced with bovine growth hormone. What you save in costs, you pay for later in medical issues like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity.
