My name is John McGran. I am also known as Mr. Bad Food in dieting circles. I like to confess my eating sins and offer tips for you to avoid my mistakes. Ask Me Anything.
I created the character, Mr. Bad Food, while working for a diet website in 2000. Mr. Bad Food is an everyday joe who makes dieting mistakes, writes about them in a humorous, conversational way, then offers tips on avoiding such dieting mistakes. I will field questions on foods (fast foods, national brand products and home-cooked meals) and tell you what traps to avoid at the supermarket and/or restaurant. may also share some of the classic entries from my Worst Foods Hall of Shame -- believe me, you need a strong stomach to simply read about these concoctions.

Mr. Bad Food has been answering your great questions since 10 a.m. ET.... that's closing in on FOUR HOURS!
While I love the back-and-forth allowed by this #HealthAMA feed, I need to take a break. Please note that this AMA will remain open for a week and I will continually check back to answer questions along the way.
Also note that I intend to do these on a monthly basis! Until we eat again, have a happy day!
