Chances are, most of our favorite foods are not exactly healthy for us.

We always crave them for obvious reasons, but it would do us some good to eat them in moderation, whether it's chocolate or mashed potatoes.

But aside from being a craving or a snack, there are general foods we consume on a regular basis and we don't think about it because it's part of our regular diet.

That is until Redditor TheJoePilato put things in perspective by asking:

"By volume, what food have you eaten the most of in your life?"

These Redditors find it's difficult to avoid carbohydrates

On A Roll

"Bread in any form probably"

– PvtPill

"I'm eating fresh bread right now! I tend to eat it about 1/3 a loaf at a time, so it seems like a lot, but I'll go weeks or months between making it."

Popular Staple Food



"Rice is great when you're hungry and want 10,000 of something."

– MaynardJ222

It Has Ap-peal

"Bananas, I think."

– Daintylittlesole

Italian food seemed to be a number one choice for hungry Redditors.

"It’s a battle between pizza and pasta. Pizza might be winning. Blame being from north NJ."

– User Deleted

NYC Staple

"I think when I first moved to NYC, it was pizza for sure. In college, it might have been pasta. Dollar slice/dollar for a pound of dry pasta? Can't say no to that."

– OP

That's One Way To Eat It

"Pasta. I inhale the stuff."

– User Deleted

A Deep Obsession

"pizza. I have an obsession that worries my friends and family. I am not unhealthy and am not over weight. Have pretty decent health, I guess that makes people mad or something but my family and close friends get actually angry with me that pizza is my main food always."

– PizzaPretender

But it's hard to resist Mexican cuisine as well.

That's A Wrap

"As a Mexican, tortillas."

– lululechavez3006

Can't Have Burritos Without 'Em

"Also as a Mexican."

"Rice and beans but tortillas are probably high on my list."

– Effective_Trouble967

It's A Daily Option

"I'm a Texan, but same. We have Tortillas pretty much daily in my home and always have."

– Lets-B-Lets-B-Jolly

These honorable mentions are also a frequent part of Redditors' diets.

Exotic Gravy

"Indian curry. It must be coming close to tonnage now."

– floydie1962

Can't Live Life Without It

"Cheese. Definitely cheese. Only because of the diversity of cheese options and the broad spectrum of other food products (vegetables, fruit, meat) that distribute the curve. ...."

"Who am I kidding. It's mostly because cheese is just so damn good."

– SanctionedMarine

And The Golden Ticket Goes To...

"Chocolate ftw! Chocolate milk, chocolate cake, chocolate cookies, brownies, chocolate muffins, chocolate pudding, chocolate oatmeal, chocolate icing, chocolate ice cream, chocolate-covered almonds, chocolate-covered espresso beans, chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate candy at every holiday and that was just when I was a kid."

"Now as an adult I've cleaned up my diet and only eat dark chocolate. Sadly I gave up 90% all sweets/junk food. But I can't say no to dark chocolate protein bars, dark chocolate-covered espresso beans, dark chocolate oatmeal. And sometimes just plain dark chocolate with a little bit of sweetener. Chocolate is my kryptonite."

For me, it's noodles.

Growing up Japanese, I had ramen, udon, and soba noodles all the time and loved slurping up each helping.

It wasn't surprising that I later became obsessed with pasta. Put me in front of a moving conveyor belt with a parade of spaghetti, fusilli, fettuccine, linguine, penne, macaroni, gnocchi. I'll devour them all if I could.

Lord help, me if I ever develop an intolerance for gluten.

We're human, and we can acknowledge that we all make mistakes.

But there's a limit to how much grace any person can be shown for their slip-ups.

In fact, there are some mistakes that a person could make in a single day that could ruin the rest of their lives.

What separates a human being from a monster?

It's an age-old question about humanity. How is a species that is born out of love and blessed with the ability for critical thinking and making others happy capable of committing unspeakable acts of horror?

The scary thing is anyone is capable of the worst kind of crime–taking another's life.

Does it take one unfortunate moment in a fit of rage or cross paths with the wrong individual resulting in a person snapping and killing someone?

Or, are some of us born with the murder gene?

People who work in hotels see all kinds of people.

As people from all over the world go in and out of their revolving doors on an almost daily basis.

Though it might be the housekeeping staff who see more than anyone else, and frankly more than they would care to see themselves.

Unlike most of the staff, they have the unique position of going into the guest's rooms.

Of course, they tend to knock to make sure no one's there before entering.

But every now and again, the guests don't hear the knock or put on the "please makeup room" sign on their door instead of "do not disturb."

Leaving the poor cleaning staff with a memories they would likely do anything to forget.

Sometimes you just get a vibe or a tingle down your neck that you're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It can be wise to trust this gut instinct, as we learned from many in the Reddit community.

Often those goosebumps or the voice in their head actually saved them from serious harm.
