No humans in history have ever eaten as much refined sugar as is now consumed by Americans and many other first world citizens. Ditto processed foods of all kinds.

That's the power of a home cooked meal. I don't eat out very often for this very reason. I also eat Ezekiel bread, plenty of vegetables, ground turkey meat, on rare occassion I eat red meat, brown rice, quinoa, rare occasion I will eat french fries or fried foods. I also eat scrambled egg whites, toasted eziekiel muffins, turkey bacon, drink skim milk and eat Cheerios as well as drink a glass of orange juice. I also make my own home made beef and turkey jerky using my own dehydrator.
Make my own hot wing sauce from scratch and grill up my plenty of chicken and turkey burgers on the grill. I never calorie counted and always ate till I was full and I never felt like I was dieting ever. This is how I lost weight. And I didn't even exercise that much and I don't have a fast metabolism either like some people. People forget the value of not just eating healthy, but also the great value of eating a meal that is healthy and it's a home cooked BOTH.
Those are best for your health and weight. There is all kinds of fun, creative ways to make a great tasting home cooked meal that is healthy. Toasting Ezekiel bread for turkey burgers makes the bread taste really good too. Without toasting the Ezekiel bread it tastes card board but it's still good for you. I have a lost a lot of weight this way, never felt hungry, never calorie counted, didn't exercise much and my energy levels are far far better. it just goes to show how important it is what kind of foods you eat.
You can also make some excellent tasting vegetable soup using ground turkey and various healthy vegetables and barley instead of white macaroni noodles or white egg noodles. Substituting barley for white macaronni elbows or white egg noodles is very healthy and good for you.

Obese people display a pathetic lack of self control/respect not to mention are disgusting to look at. Where we are, supermarkets actually provide these tubs of lard with scooters to roll around on. I never cease to be amazed at just how wide the human ass can get.
University of California Santa Barbra Nutrition Blog wrote:To begin my analysis of Ezekiel bread vs. 100% whole wheat bread, I started by comparing the Ezekiel bread to a generic 100% whole wheat bread option. Based on just the nutrition facts label the Ezekiel bread has less calories, less total fat, a lot less sodium, less sugar and it has more dietary fiber. All in all the Ezekiel bread looks to be better option than a 100% whole wheat bread I compared it against. Of course I am only comparing the Ezekiel against one 100% whole wheat bread option. There are lots of options available on the market so doing a simple nutrition fact label comparison can help you determine which product is better.
