Delicious
(NaturalNews) In the battle against excess weight, people often find it difficult to give up many of their favorite foods. You know well what's best for your health, and what would destroy your diet plan, but putting it into practice is often a completely different story.

The following describes four common foods that will definitely add inches to the waistline. Slightly tweaked, however, these foods don't need to be completely eliminated from the diet.


Pizza

Everyone loves a thick pizza loaded with toppings. Pizza eaten the wrong way can be extremely fattening and quickly add inches. Pizza eaten the right way, however, can even be a relatively healthy treat. The wrong way includes thick crust, extra cheese, and meat toppings. Thin crust pizza loaded with healthy veggies, like tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and black olives, is delicious and less fattening.

Potato Chips

Potato chips are a constant in the American diet. They're used as sides on many dishes and are found at nearly all barbecues and family outings. Chips that are deep fried will quickly add pounds to any waistline and add very little nutritional value. While eating baked chips can still add calories if eaten in excess, they're a good alternative to regular potato chips. Make wise choices!

Fried Chicken

Many people mistakenly believe fried chicken isn't too bad as far as fat and calories go. After all, it's chicken, which usually has fewer fat and calories than pork or beef. But just like with chips, anything deep fried adds loads of empty fat and calories. The healthy alternative is to either bake or broil. Even baking chicken with a light coating is healthier than frying it.

Milkshakes

While some people treat them like a good, tasty snack, milkshakes are notoriously loaded with not only lots of calories, but extra fat and sugar as well. Some milkshakes even have all the calories and fat the average person needs in one day. Healthy alternatives can include using fat free milk and low fat ice milk when making a milk shake.

Pizza, potato chips, fried chicken, and milkshakes are some of the most popular and common foods in our culture. Unfortunately, they're also some of the most fattening. There are variations on these favorites as well as similar alternatives that prove to be much healthier. Selection is the key, control yourself and choose these healthy alternatives rather than your favorite "health killers."
