Introduction: What is Healthy Food?
The word “healthy” is often used to describe food that is good for your health and it means that the food does not contain any ingredients that are bad for your health. So, even if you eat unhealthy foods or unhealthful foods like junk foods, fast food, or processed food, as long as they don’t have any unhealthy ingredients in them then they can still be considered healthy.
In order to be considered healthy, the food should not contain any of these ingredients: sugar, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol and salt.
High Fat Foods that are Unhealthy and May Lead to Weight Gain
The list of high fat foods that are unhealthy and may lead to weight gain is long. It includes greasy fast food, bacon, hot dogs, pizza, ice cream, butter, and cheese.
High-fat foods are not healthy and can lead to weight gain. But there are some low-fat alternatives that are just as tasty and satisfying.
Foods Packed with Sugar that are Bad for Our Health
The sugar content in food is not an indication of their nutritional value. Foods such as fruit juices, vegetables, and cereals can have a high sugar content. So we should be careful about our food choices and read the nutrition labels on the foods we buy.
Some of the most common sources of sugar are soda, fruit juices, alcohols, energy drinks and sweetened coffee drinks. These can be found in both processed foods and beverages.
