Are There Certain Foods You Do Not Eat Because Of Healthy Reason?

October 8th, 2010 · 6 Comments ·


I met a long lost friend who I have not seen for more than 10 years. She used to be overweight, but now she has slimmed down a lot. We decided to to go for dinner. As there is only a pizza restaurant nearby, I suggested to dine in there. However, she told me that she has not eaten pizza for 5 years and never intend to do so because it is too fattening.

I was impressed by her determination and I wonder whether anyone out there can be so disciplined not to break the rule, even once in a blue moon for special occasion. I have friends who do not eat red meat, mayonnaise, donuts or soda. I eat everything, but all in moderation. For example, Occasionally, I still drink beer or wine in some social functions. I sip on coffee too, but not because of addiction, but because of one of the ways to spoil myself for achieving something, including my fitness goals. I have soft drink, fried chicken or ice cream, but they are not everyday thing. Come to think of it, food I do not touch is actually food I do not like, rather than because of its unhealthy reason.


How about you, are there any specific food you do not eat because they are too oily, fattening or unhealthy?

    Anything that’s heavily processed, I avoid. Anything that comes in a box that’s too colourful, has ingredients that I cannot pronounce, and has a shelf life of many years – I avoid too.

    I think its a shame to deprive ourselves of the pleasures like good (or the not-so-good but tasty) food.

    I like to eat! A lot! And I’m not one of those people who have a crazy metabolism who finds it hard to put on weight – I put on weight very easily :(

    However I exercise with the intent (and intensity) to burn off what I eat.

    A friend of mine recently mentioned that in the army they had to eat foods cooked in ways we would consider ‘unhealthy’ but they needed the extra calories.

    There aren’t any foods which I avoid eating. My biggest vice is a kebab (lets just say that here in the UK they arent the same as the kebabs in Morocco).

    Having said that… I tend to avoid eating pizza not because of health or fat reasons – but simply because usually when I’ve finished eating, I feel tired, bloated and lazy lol

    Talk about food restriction…..I just read a book about diet according to blood type. Looks like people who are under O blood type cannot take dairy food and pork. And it seems this kind of diet is not a myth or belief. AMERICAN doctors acknowledge this type of diet will improve health. Seems like certain food will have some allergy effect to certain people which will bring inner stress and illness. What they says is eat right and you will be healthy and slim. Eat wrong food…it will goes otherwise. What you reckons?

    About 4 years ago now, I gave up Fast Food for good. I found myself going to various fast food restaurants during lunch break a lot and before I knew it, I was literally addicted to it. So I made the decision to give it up and give it up forever. Haven’t been back since and never intend on going back. If i’m in the mood to eat out somewhere quick, i’ll hit up a Subway or a Saladworks. But no McDonalds, Burger King, Checkers, Taco Bell, nothing like that.

    I’ve also recently given up regular soda (i’ll have a diet once in a blue moon) and I don’t plan on ever going back to that either.

    I can relate. I’ve given up fast food, pizza, soda, beer (but not all alcohol), and sweets. Feel a thousand times better because of it.

    I do not touch anything processed and I do not eat any mayonaise anymore. Fast food is now a “luxury” – this means, we strive to only have it twice a year.
