Just a quick question. Why is corn-on-the-cob red listed? I understand that corn has low nutritional value but I am ignorant of how it could be detrimental.

1g of fiber
Now are you gonna tell me its okay to it eat it (for someone who's trying to lose wight) because it has a 1g of fiber and 4g of protein...lets never mind that its made from white flour (refined = not good for you) , salt ( water retention ) and has 41g of carbs per same serving... I dont think so. You can argue every food has nutritional value. However, for anyone trying to achieve optimal results due to healthy eating and exercising...eating foods with a high thermogenic value, low glycemic index (a measure of blood sugar level), and nutritious as possible often as possible is a must.
No to ketchup because its full of sugar...if you read the ingredients on the back (keep in mind the first ingredient on the list has the highest % and the last the lowest % ) -This label is the Heinz Tomato Ketchup- Tomato Paste, Liquid Sugar, White Vinegar, Salt, Onion Powder, Spices.
If you want Lycopene...grab a darn tomato.
As far as antioxidants go...vegetables and fruits that are rich in colours, for example : berries, brocolli, spinach, oranges, mangos,sweet potatoes etc etc etc

Allow yourself to cheat once in a while. ("Once in a while" is not twice a day, every day.)
Island Ryhno said:You have a long way to go if you think you're going to give me a "talking to" Semper. What your basically trying to push is a low carb diet, and we all know how that works don't we. Small portions of anything will not hurt anybody, dieting or not. If you were to choose a "junk" food, pretzels would probably be #1 on the list. A tablespoon of ketchup has 4g of sugar, hardly detrimental to anyone, unless you're on a low carb diet. The real reason your telling people not to eat carrots or corn is because of carbohydrates. So why didn't you just come out at the start of the thread and say, "this is a low carb plan" It would clear a lot of things up for people. Go reread the part about the carrots before you critize again. But hey what do I know, I'm just a lowly gym rat.
