We asked the BuzzFeed Community which foods people are definitely, totally eating the wrong way. Here are the ~life-changing~ results.

1. Grilled cheese.

"I swear I have gotten every single person I know hooked on this. It sounds so weird but I promise it's delicious. I spread grape jelly on the top of my grilled cheese. It can be a little messy but if you hold it like pizza, not so much." —brittnyw

5. Doughnuts with icing.
