Chicken is an excellent source of protein, making it one of the best muscle-building foods. But once you toss that baby in a fryer, you turn a fat-burning all-star into a waistline-expanding food that will put you at risk for serious heart problems. “One measly piece of fried chicken adds about 10 grams of fat to your diet, and a high-fat diet has been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease," says Zuckerbrot. "Instead of frying your chicken, save yourself nine grams of fat by baking it in the oven and squeezing lemon on top for an extra burst of flavor.”
