10 Worst Foods For Your Heart

Hot Dogs

Hot dogs are the classic backyard barbecue or ball game food, but you should avoid them if you care about your heart. Hot dogs are not healthy due to their very high fat content.


Bacon is another food that is particularly dangerous for your heart. The high saturated fat content of bacon increases the risk of obesity, stroke, and cardiovascular diseases.

Red Meat

Red meat can be delicious but is also very high in saturated fats and, in some cases, added hormones and antibiotics used in raising animals.


Sodas are full of sugar, artificial sweeteners, and other unhealthy ingredients. The high amounts of sugar increase your risk for obesity and heart disease.

Rotisserie Chicken

Rotisserie chicken is a convenient meal option but is usually high in saturated fats and sodium. The skin is incredibly unhealthy since it’s full of fat and preservatives added to increase the shelf life.


Butter is a dairy product high in saturated fats, and consuming too much increases cholesterol levels. The American Heart Association recommends saturated fat intake be less than 7 percent of your daily calories.

White Rice

White rice is an everyday staple in many diets but is not very nutritious and raises blood sugar levels. Refined grains like white rice don’t have as much fiber or vitamins as whole grains, which are better for heart health.

French Fries

French fries are a well-known side dish but not very healthy. Fried foods contain trans fats, raising LDL cholesterol and increasing heart disease risk.


The combination of processed meats, cheese, and high-sodium tomato sauce is incredibly unhealthy due to their high sodium and cholesterol levels.

Ice Cream

Ice cream is a delicious treat, but most varieties’ high sugar and fat content make it bad for your heart. Consuming too much ice cream increases cholesterol levels and raises the risk of obesity over time.
