It’s the little foxes that ruin the vineyard. Or so the saying goes. Often, you find yourself wanting to munch on something. Not really hungry, so you grab that bag of chips. They’re not filling but they do satisfy that craving you can’t explain. However, it’s these out-of-meal snacks that are the culprit of weight gain. Switch to owning a salad instead! Quick the junk and go organic!
Salad Maker: Harmful Effects Of Junk Food
By junk food, we don’t only mean meals you can get at fast-food chains. We’re referring to all types of artificially made and preserved food items. Whether only a part of the whole or the whole itself contains something artificial. They fall under the same category.
Junk food is created to have that exceptional taste you just can never have enough of. They’re meant to be that way. They contain very little amounts of nutrients yet are high in flavor. In other words, they need to be. Otherwise, why else will you want to have a bite of your favorite snack?
That said, these ingredients and preservatives also contain MSG. Monosodium glutamate. And this is one of those factors that create the “can’t stop but have more” sensation. It is, in a sense, an addictive agent. Hence, our penchant for junk food.
You’ll gain weight. For sure. And you already know this. Junk foods are high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fat and carbohydrates. We’re talking artificial sugars and fats. Which means they are digested even more quickly than their natural counterparts. What’s left immediately gets absorbed by your body and turns into weight gain.
Second, they slow you down. The myth that bad sugars are energy boosters. Well, only a part of that is true. After consumption, you WILL experience a very brief boost in energy. On the other hand, because, as we’ve mentioned, artificial sugars are digested more quickly, you get that sugar high. But it dies down just as quickly. Leaving you even more tired than before.
Third. A higher risk of heart disease. The factors mentioned earlier all add up to this. What’s bad for our bodily systems ultimately are bad for the heart. Fat and bad cholesterol clog up passageways and lead to cardiovascular problems.
