10 Frightening Foods

Forget about Halloween candy. That's kid stuff compared to the damage these menu selections can do to your diet. Let's take a look at some of the worst food choices anyone can make.

Donuts
Deep fry some refined flour, add a bunch of sugar and what have you got? An extended engagement with the treadmill.

Ice Cream
We're not going to dis' all ice creams, but the ones that use cream as the primary ingredient could be packing as much as 250 calories and 10 grams of fat per serving.

Chicken Pot Pie
Sure there's protein in those chunks of chicken, but one brand serves up 1,020 calories and an astonishing 64 grams of fat.

Lunch Meats
In addition to their reputation for abundant sodium and fat, it can be difficult to determine exactly what these processed meats were made from. Best to leave it a mystery.

Instant Noodles
They're cheap, tasty and filling. But instant noodles don't offer much in the way of nutritional support, and most will weigh you down with salt.

Margarine
Many of these butter substitutes are little more than dyed and flavored shortenings with hydrogenated oils playing a major role. There are Trans Fat free alternatives.

Corn Chips
Don't let the vegetable-sounding name fool you. Corn chips are no better for you than regular potato chips.

Canned Soups
Some of the most popular contain up to 50% of your daily sodium intake. At that rate, you'd be left with nothing but celery sticks for dinner.

Baked Beans
While beans are a great source of protein and dietary fiber, if they've been swimming in a pool of refined sugars they can't be all that good for you.

Low-Fat Salad Dressing
Sure they removed most if not all of the fat. But to make it taste like something, many are loaded with sugar.
