French fries are that great American food that fools its consumers with the notion that their deep fried greasiness are actually refined, with that fancy “French” title. But don’t be fooled. “French” refers to the way the potato is cut. These potatoes doused in boiling, hot grease and salt are nothing close to being a delicacy.
#1 You’ll Gain Unnecessary Weight.
French fries are particularly high in carbohydrates — which is not an innately a bad thing. However, french fries complex refined carbohydrates (processed), which makes them fall under the “bad” category that don’t necessarily convert into good energy. Due to the fact that french fries are complex carbs, it means that your body digests them slowly. Add the fact that they have had many of the nutrients removed through the refining process, then you are slowly digesting unhealthy food.
