There is one food that single handedly put many of these pounds on me. If it were banished from the face of the earth loosing those pounds would be soooo much easier!!!
Reason: Moved from Weight Loss to Foods

RAISINS. Not because they contribute to weight gain but because the buggers are so disgusting they do not need, under any circumstances, to grace us with their presence upon this earth.
Ahahahaha I agree completely, raisins are the devil, poisoning all the good cereals and breads and cakes.
For me it would be chocolate!
I don't find any purpose for it. Really, all it tastes like in the end is oily milk. It is a key ingredient for the sole purpose of adding calories we dont really need, drowning a perfectly innocent, ripe bowl of strawberries in cholesterol laden death, sitting like a seemingly innocent white cloud ontop of an already falsely saintly bed of ice cream, sprinkles and chopped nuts.
No no no. Cream is yummy, but you get my point. Fattening, ultimately.
Just one? Would have to be poutine....whoever invented cheese and gravy on fries should be shot. Round here we call it a heart attack in a cup. Definately evil food....deliciously evil...mmmm poutine.
And in the drink category, I have to put paralyzers. I am pretty sure THEY are what single-handedly caused a great deal of my weight gain in my early twenties. I recently calculated one of those puppies to have 560 cals each....and I used to drink like 10 a night :( Wow my weight gain is not much of a mystery is it??
SPAGHETTI!! Before i even knew about calories or any of that stuff..i used to eat a giant bowl of spaghetti (at least 4 servings worth) every night!! seriously..when i first started going to college thats all i ate for dinner for my first whole year. yikes.
Pasta of any kind!
pretty much all junk food and fast food......not because I hate it but because "lifestyle"ing would be so much easier if it weren't so easy to get
cream based soups, alfredos....
and how i love them so....but oh so fattening....
I can't do just one either, so I split mine up into two categories:
Food: Ranch dressing. I probably added a good 300 calories to almost every meal or snack with ranch dressing. Whyyyy is it so delicious with everything? Pizza and ranch? Done. Rice and ranch? Done. Veggies and ranch? Naturally. Fried chicken and ranch? Totally. On burgers? Fries? Dip for chips? I used to put ranch dressing on ev-er-y-thing.
Drink: Beer. I'm from Texas. We drink almost 300 more beers a year per person than any other state in the US. Texans love beer. I gained 20 pounds my sophomore year of college because I got an apartment I could drink in.
Beer + Ranch = Fat Danyelle, definitely.
The Burger King Rodeo Burger.... I feel a little closer to heaven every time I eat it, but then the moment ends and my thighs are wider, and I am filled with sadness.
Something about them makes me lose control, and they're not exactly nutritious XD
(but they are oh so tasty)
KFC extra crispy chicken breast.
Pizza and sweets.
Cheese, chocolate, chips... all evil (and aliterative). If these foods didn't exist, life would be much easier and my waist would be much smaller.
Cinnamint, I love okra, but it has to be the right sort, and cooked right. You can't cut or bruise it, and it needs to be cooked with lemon to stop it getting slimy. And none of the stuff that is the size of your thumb. The ideal sort is less than an inch.
I vote for pistachios!

Glad I could make you smile! At least I got my fiber for the day, right? Always look for the positive spin. :)
Chocolate, Chocolate, and more chocolate!!!
