It’s not the mac and cheese.
It’s not the white rice.
It’s not the apple.
It’s not the bread.
It’s not the cookies.
It’s not the cake.
It’s not the ice cream.
It’s not the ranch dressing.
It’s not the barbecue sauce.
It’s not the salt.
It’s not the milk.
It’s not the beer.
It’s not certain foods that make you fat. At the end of the day, the total quantity of food (calories) and the quality of food sources (micro/macronutrients) are what matters. Yes, there are also other factors that constitute to body composition, but they are all secondary.
It’s the 6 burgers you had at the barbecue.

It’s the mac and cheese you had for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
It’s the giant plate of white rice you had at the Chinese restaurant.
It’s the sole apple you had for the day.
It’s the countless slices of bread for your sandwiches that you packed for work.
It’s the box of cookies you had while sitting in front of your computer.
It’s the cake you ate all by yourself.
It’s the two pints of ice cream you had sitting on the couch while watching The Walking Dead.
It’s the ounces and ounces of ranch dressing you used for every single meal.
It’s the barbecue sauce you basically drank straight from the bottle.
It’s all the sodium you had from eating packaged Ramen noodles four times a day.
It’s the half gallon of milk you had in one day.
It’s the 10 beers you had at the bar.
The name of the game is discipline and moderation. Do that, and you’ll never have to restrict yourself from your favorite foods as long as you’re alive.
