The hectic contemporary lifestyle we have forces us to resort to fast food. Fast food is simply the food you can have in a jiffy. But the quick nature of food does have its negative points. It is important to bear them in mind before considering anything else.
Those found to be fond of eating fast food in specialized outlets or even on stray street stalls were found to be more likely to have gained weight than those who did not have an affinity for junk food. Detailed studies confirmed the results after detailed experiments conducted over a period of 15 years.
Those who had burgers and pizzas twice a week were found to be more resistant to insulin as compared to those who had junk-food just once a week or only occasionally. This pointed towards an incidence of type-2 diabetes. Unhealthy eating habits are the main reasons for incidence of disorders like diabetes in urban men and women.
Fast-food is also found to be rich in calories. A frequent diet rich in calories always points to an unhealthy being. This applies to everyone regardless of race or gender. In general, fast-food is the leading cause of obesity in the US.
Considering the potency of fast-food in leading to so many health problems, it is very important to keep track of all that one eats. Keep track of all the nutrients that you are taking in as food and fast-food. Do opt for salads over fried food like chips because salads contain a lot less amount of fat.
