What are most common greasy foods?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi,





Recently my doctor told me to eat less greasy foods. My blood test showed a higher level of cholestrol. I asked him what are the common greasy foods, and he told me : Burger, pizza, fries etc.



I am not sure these are the only greasy foods in the common North American diet.

Can anybody point me to a comprehensive list of greasy foods, if possible, ranked in the order of greasiness?



Thanks.

I couldn't find a website but.. chips are greasy! And watch out at Italian restaurants. They'll probably use a lot of oil

Oil doesn't raise cholesterol, saturated fats do (for the most part obviously there are other factors). Things like Olive Oil are actually very healthy and reduce cholesterol.

Watch out for processed snack foods, which have hydrogenated oils in them. These may not seem "greasy," but they can be very bad for you. Pick oils that are less processed, especially those that are liquid at room temperature. If it's a solid at room temperature, it's likely to be a solid in your veins, too.

Cheese, cream, milk, butter, coconut oil, anything deep fried, pie crusts, shortbreads, chocolate...



Those aren't in order of fat content, though.

Dark Chocolate is high in antioxidants and is good for you in moderation. A Hershey bar a day, however, would be a different story.

Raw chocolate is actually a superfood so eat way!



Also, Coconut oil is really good for you!

Obviously don't go crazy but you don't have to avoid it completely

Healthy people may not have to avoid it, but coconut oil is full of saturated fat, which may raise cholesterol.

Ah....and shame on Blimpie (and ask questions when ordering! don't just take the word veggie at face value!):

Can an appetizer with the caloric equivalent of 13 Krispy Kreme doughnuts be justified? No. The 2,710-calorie Awesome Blossom has been purged from Chili's menu--maybe the fat-drenched appetizer couldn't withstand the scrutiny of being named to the Eat This, Not That! list of the Worst Foods in America last year. No matter the reason, we applaud this waist-expanding starter's retirement.



The deep-fried onion wasn't the only thing to withdraw from last year's race--more than 10 other items from 2008's lineup have been removed from menus (or mysteriously had their calorie counts lowered). That's a step in the right direction, and it's good news for your waistline.



The bad news? There are plenty of frightening foods still at large across the country. After another year of menu investigation, we’ve come up with this year's list of the most calorie-laden, fat-riddled, sodium-swaddled, sugar-spiked dishes in America. Eat at your own risk.



Worst "Healthy" Sandwich

Blimpie Veggie Supreme (12")

1,106 calories

56 g fat (33 g saturated fat)

2,831 mg sodium

96 g carbohydrates



Sure, a Veggie Supreme sandwich sounds healthy, but this foot-long comes with three different kinds of cheese, and it’s drenched in oil. After Blimpie gets done with this vegetarian nightmare, you’d be better off consuming two Big Macs than sitting down with this sandwich.

i have this very odd feeling someone new is going to show up very soon with a handy list of greasy foods ranked in order of greasiness. and if they do, that'll be spam, which is very naughty, and there will be bannings and link removal.



musicgold, forget about silly lists. your best bet would be to start reading food labels and looking at the fat content of what you are buying. if the nutrition content isn't listed, don't buy it. if you see any words that don't sound like food, don't buy it. stop buying prepared food, make your own from scratch instead, and you can control exactly how much fat goes into it.
