What’s something that everyone loves but is actually bad for you?

You know, foods, stuff people do, or just weird things that people love and which aren’t good ideas or good for them. Can be as specific or as random as you imagine.

Dogs.

I’d love to pet them, tickle them, play with them.

But i also like being able to breathe without wheezing, and not scratching myself to oblivion :pleading_face:

So, just to be clear – is this “something that people love doing but are actually bad habits and people shouldn’t do them”, or, as Stephen interpreted it, things other people love but have a bad effect on the poster personally?

Ice cream.
99% of people love it but, technically, it is junk food.

Pizza. Another on the junk food list.

At the risk of making redundant a whole host of things that might get mentioned here:

SuGaR!

(On that note, fathead pizza is awesome.)

The outdoors. Similar to @Stephen, everytime I’m outside I get all stuffy and itchy and miserable.

Scratching the inside of the ear. I don’t use cotton buds (Q-tips), but i do periodically still put something in my ear to give it a scratch.

I know i mustn’t; I’ve seen more than enough episodes of Audiology Associates on YouTube to know it’s wrong.

And yet…

Bacon - bacon is literally the leftover trash meat that no one wanted until advertising made it “FaShIoNaBlE”. Now it’s a lifestyle in the US and it’s so gross and bad for you.
Yes, I suggested this topic just so I could rant about bacon.

I also LOVE bacon.

Bacon’s okay, but i find it over-rated. I much prefer sausages.

So I like it in things, but on its own I too prefer sausage. It’s good for a crunch in a breakfast burrito, for example.
But I’d much rather have a well-seasoned breakfast sausage.

Especially a sausage from a specialist butcher… insert drool face here

But even a basic sausage. Oh, man…

A sausage and fried egg batch, (runny yolk, of course), with brown sauce. Gotta have the brown sauce; that is the law!

Ohhhh no sorry on the brown sauce, the South has flat patties and gravy lol.

Though I love a hearty breakfast when we’re in the UK. :slight_smile:

I’ve heard of it but legitimately don’t know what’s in it either.

Bags and bags of flavour!

But apparently it’s primary flavour is tamarind
