  • Processed Meats

    Processed Meats

    Hot dogs, deli meats, bacon and sausage have an overload of sodium and preservatives, which have been linked to heart problems.

  • Red Meat

    Red Meat

    Remember moderation is key, so don't go crazy with the red meat since it is high in saturated fat.

  • Pizza

    Pizza

    Getting a pizza delivered may be an easy substitute to a healthy meal, but just that one cheesy slice has as much as two thirds of your daily recommended limit of saturated fat, and let's face it, we never eat just one slice!

  • Fettuccine Alfredo

    Fettuccine Alfredo

    Fettuccine alfredo is an indulgent Italian dish, but that alfredo sauce is made of butter, cream and cheese.

  • Soda

    Soda

    Cholesterol and fat play a big role in heart disease but so does sugar, and soda is packing sugar in that can!

  • Eggs Benedict

    Eggs Benedict

    Though eggs are usually considered healthy, a classic eggs benedict meal can cost you 700 calories and 35 grams of fat.

  • Cheeseburgers

    Cheeseburgers

    There may be some lettuce or tomato slices on there, but that processed meat and all the bread can cost you over 1,000 calories.

  • Fried Foods

    Fried Foods

    Fried chicken sandwiches are sometimes just as bad or worse than their cheeseburger counterpart. Then you add on the onion rings or French fries, and you've got a heart-stopping meal.

  • Instant Noodles

    Instant Noodles

    Instant noodles, which are always packaged and never expire, are full of sodium.

  • Canned Soup

    Canned Soup

    Soup is a great way to curb your appetite and shed a few pounds, but be careful because most canned soups are packed with sodium.
