Southern Soul Food Bad For The Belly

RALEIGH, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Southern food may be good for the soul, but it’s bad for the belly.

Barbecue chicken and macaroni and cheese are the achilles heel of Ed Brantley, the latest “loser” sent home from The Biggest Loser: Families, this past Wednesday (Oct. 8).

Brantley, who works as a chef in North Carolina, says good ol’ southern foods were the cause of his beefy weight since he couldn’t help but sample the greasy grub he cooked all day.

He says, “I’d be eating all day at work, snacking and tasting. Southern food is truly a double-edged sword. It’s the best food in the world, but it’s the worst.”

Looking back, Brantley admits that he took his taste tests to the extreme, and could have spit out the food into a napkin after tasting it.

These days, he has started incorporating healthier foods into his menu to help fellow fatties and to give himself healthier snacks.
