I love French fries,they are so yummy to taste, But sadly they are so poor in nourishment, When I was a teenager,I used to snack on them a lot on the sly, Till my mother caught me red handed one day on the act,with a war cry, I couldn't refute my crime as she caught me red handed with no excuse, She gave me a lecture about the unhealthy nature of fries,with no excuse, But till my cousin got tummy upset and kidney malfunctioning, Did I really stop filling myself with too much fries, Now when I rebuke my kids for munching too much fries instead of healthy food, I show the photograph of my obese cousin,who snacked on too much on fries, I have at least partially succeeded, to help them cut down their intake of fries.

It only takes discipline for a good healthy lifestyle. Yes, french fries are one of the worst foods in health. It does have high calorie and cholesterol due to oil when you fry it. Instant Noodles and doughnuts are also the same thing. They might be tasty to some, but not healthy to eat and is also dangerous to our body especially if you give this to kids on a regular basis. So if you love your family and yourself, be very careful on what you eat and choose only fresh fruits and veggies. About drinks, we should also be careful on drinking soda because these are also not good for our health.

I don`t think that fries, if eaten with moderation, are so bad for our health. Our body needs some fat and if we can gite it the fat it needs with yummy things, I`d say it`s better. But many people tend to become fanatics. If they eat veggies, they will eat only veggies; if they eat cake, they will gobble cake and sweets in incredible amounts. Neither way is good.

Always have a healthy eating habit rather than be a fan of one single item in the food list.

The companies who manufacture fries show them as fun food,and thus cheat the gullible public.

I'm not a huge fan of french fries so normally it is pretty easy for me to avoid them. I do work at a steakhouse though so there are a lot of fries there that I am constantly around. When you get hungry and you have a whole bunch of fries just sitting there it gets a little hard to avoid them. Up until I worked at this steak house I rarely ate fries at all. Now it's fairly hard to avoid eating at least a couple fries almost every time I work there. I'm hoping that just eating a couple every now and then there won't hurt my health too much.

It's always like that when a dish is tasty it means its not healthy but when it's not it's healthy. I love a salad with lots of mayo and other yummy dressing but I know that it is not healthy like that even though veggies. I love french fries too, mojos and pizza's but all those are not healthy but very tasty. I even crave for it now. How I love eating those without getting worried of getting fat. But I know that... it's what you get of what to take.

French fries can be healthy if it is fried using good cooking oil and eaten moderately. Good thing that your kids can be touched using the photograph and succeed to cut the intake of the fries. Hopefully they can eat more healthy food because it will be a benefit when they are growing older

French fries are actually potatoes. Potatoes are carbohydrates which when you consume too much will put on weight. Besides, fries is oiled fried. Businessmen will use and reuse the oil again and again. Reused oil tend to turn rancid. So eating fried is unhealthy.

why is french fries unhealthy when it is made from potatoes. I can't understand that. why can't it be healthy one. I make french fries using sweet potatoes. Is it because of the deep frying?

Fried food is not healthy at all. I was on a diet two years ago and the expert I was seeing wouldn't let me eat fried at all, so I got used to it and don't miss them now.

Trust me all the tastiest food on earth are the bad ones for health. The more the taste, the worst they are for your health. The bad the food tastes the healthiest it is. LOL! this is the rule of nature forever. To gain something one has to lose something. Me too love fries a hell lot, but now i have completely stopped eating it, because i have been gaining weight like anything i am now around 180 lbs sadly my doctor has said my cholesterol has increased it is 265 when it should be 200. I am worried about my health now. I eat healthy foods, mostly proteins only now with less or almost no oil food. So i am losing weight i have lost around 2 to 3 kilos in last few days. The scale on losing side is way too much still but i am trying.
