11 Foods You Should Never Eat

4. Grilled Shrimp Caprese

Shrimp by itself is high in protein and iron while being low in fat and calories. This changes when the shrimp is added to the popular restaurants that serve Grilled Shrimp Caprese. The garlic-butter sauce that is used in the dish is the main ingredient that is used to up the calorie count, the sodium level and the fat that is in the dish. The sauce may allow you to rack up almost two-thirds of the daily fat and approximately one and a half times the sodium limit that should be consumed in a single day. One plate contains 900 calories, 3,490 milligrams of sodium and 41 grams of fat. The biggest reasons to avoid this dish are because of the high amounts of fat and sodium, which are two markers of heart disease and high blood pressure. When you dine out, consider eating from the lighter options and be sure to ask about sodium content whenever possible.
