Not-So-Good For Weight-Loss Diet Food

Many people have special needs in a diet, such as me with my diabetes. Other persons follow a certain type of diet because of their own personally held religious and/or philosophical beliefs or concerns, such as Kosher, vegetarian, vegan, chemical and/or artificial additives, etc.
