What is considered as junk food?

I am planning to stop eating some junk food for a while. I get confused what’s junk food. I know hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, cookies, sodas, candies, foods at fast food restaurants, and french fries are junk food. There are plenty more. Can you list foods that you know are considered as junk food? please and thank you for the help.

    Look at the fat content on the packaging.
    If it is higher than 30%, it is generally better to avoid it. (Just a guidline)

    the easiest way to skip the junk is to skip the inside isles of a grocery store. I would remove from that list only natural peanut butter, whole-grain cereal, and whole grain bread with no added sugars.

    use the food pyramid

    look at food labels. if anything is more than 25% of your daily intake, then dont eat it (be sure to look at serving sizes 2)

    Foods with table sugar, high fructose corn syrup, trans fats and fried foods are normally considered junk foods. Some people regard meats with high amounts of saturated fat as junk food (beef and pork primarily).

    Not junk food: Grilled poultry, fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, rice and pasta, skim milk

    just think that anything that isn’t vegetables and not fresh from the market is junk. that is easier.Eat fresh Fruit. Eat fresh vegetables that are steamed. cut back on red meat, no fried foods, and cut back on the bread. and cut back on pasta. eat salads, fish, chicken. don’t eat food that comes in plastic wrappers. thats a clue! no donuts! use your brain!
