If there are certain foods that you really love and don't want to miss — like those creamy mashed potatoes or the dessert that's just calling your name — then limit ordinary foods like corn or a dinner roll to save calories where you won't miss them. Keep in mind that this isn't your only chance to eat these favorites. You can have pumpkin pie in March if you want to.

its raelly obvious, if your favorite food is bad for you guess what NO WEIGHT HAHA! actually, that would be really bad cuz a. when most people hear this there gunna be like yes! and eat a lot of junk food, but you can still get diabetes and stuff and by the time you stop its too late, and b. gaining weight is important to health if you don't you die :p (red is still better cuz fav food is prob bad for you eat anything you can vary so die either way but watevs)
2. MELT the butter in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Stir in the sugars and reduce the heat to low. Heat the mixture (avoid simmering), stirring often, until the sugar is partially dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the cocoa, vanilla and 1⁄2 tsp salt. Beat the eggs lightly in a small bowl. Add to the cocoa mixture, stirring until just combined. Add the flour and stir until just combined. Stir in the chopped walnuts.
Instead of wondering whether a food is ‘bad’ and if you should feel guilty for eating it, think ‘Does this food nourish my body? Does it have vitamins and minerals?” If it does, then enjoy it thoroughly and feel good about treating your body like a temple. Far too often I hear people feeling guilty or concerned about eating butter, oil, bacon, a juicy steak, potatoes, nuts, shrimp, eggs, peanut butter, cheese, bread, cream, too much fruit, chocolate and even coffee! These foods have plenty of vitamins and minerals and regardless of their caloric content they help to support the chemical reactions in your body that make up your metabolism, the health of your skin and other endothelial cells that line your blood veins and digestive system, the hormones, proteins and neurotransmitters responsible for communication all over the body as well as brain, bone, muscle, organ, and tissue health.
