All I can tell you is the worst foods on the planet combine high gi carbs and "bad" fats.

Some examples are french fries, cinnamonbuns, peanut butter sundaes, candy with dextrose (i.e sprees, sweet tarts), chocolate milk, soda, doughnuts, and fettucini alfredo and pasta salads.

The foods I listed above will wreak havoc on your physique and fat-loss efforts, regardless of the quantity consumed.

I'd avoid those foods like the plague.

Only exception is for a cheat meal...and I still limit these foods to once in-a-blue-moon.

I'm with Steve, anything with a fat/carb combo is not only terrible for your physique but also very dangerous to your health, especially anything processed.

Exactly. Anything greasy and fried up in rancid oil, then drizzled with a sweet, high fructose corn syrup concoction will speed you into the ground, and out of your 32" waist jeans.

Alcohol, especially beer. Rarely, I will have either red wine or tequila (it isn't made with wheat or potatoes like most other hard liquors)

Grains (any).

Dairy (unless raw and in small amounts).

Nightshades (don't know what that means? Go to

Anything with sugar in it when Nature didn't originally put that sugar in it.

Anything with hydrogenated fat in it.

That's pretty much my basic rules for things to avoid. If one followed those rules they wouldn't be able to eat 'bad' things and they would get lean. I'm a prime example of this. I'm supposedly eating too many blocks per day while following the above rules and I'm still getting leaner.

Now, as to optimal food choices and sources, that's a whole different animal.

I saw a list of what wwas supposed to be the Top 12 worst foods, and while I can't remember all of them, these were definitely on the list:
non-diet soda pop
potato chips
french fries
ice cream
candy bars
anything deep-fried
hot dogs....

Moderation is where I stand, because that justifies my bigmacs. :biggrin:

Seriously, there's no food on this planet that will make or break your health and/or physique if you keep things in moderation.

For any eating, zone or not:

alcohol - tastes good, makes you feel good, body recognizes it as nothing but poison
trans fat - does nothing but clog arteries
high fructose corn syrup - about the easiest thing in the world to store as bodyfat

Saturated fat, has some value as small amounts appear necessary for some hormone function/testosteron production. Otherwise same artery clogging properties as trans fat
Any refined sugar: Does have its place so long as it will be used immediately for either training or recovers. Otherwise see HFCS above
