Get away from unhealthy food (Fast food)
You have heard a thousand times that fast food is not recommended, but you still fall into temptation or not even know that you are feeding on “junk food”. What do you think are buns, burritos, croissants, ice cream, pizzas or frozen and precooked dishes?
Since you live alone or eat outside, your abdomen and hips have begun to increase alarmingly. That’s nothing compared to the damage your arteries can be suffering. Not to mention stomach discomfort, pimples and, in general, damage to all your skin.
More than once a week, your menu consists of a hamburger + French fries + sauces + ice cream or cake? Do you ever order a pizza or prepare a batch of frozen chips? You have to change your eating habits. In addition to health, you will gain in pleasure when eating.
Junk food attacks your nervous system and is a great ally of stress and physical discomfort. Although it satisfies, it does not provide the vitamins and nutrients that the body needs to function well.
Do not kid yourself. The best foods are those that you buy and prepare at home or those that serve you in trustful establishments that cook with olive oil.
3 REASONS TO AVOID FAST FOOD.
A woman need about 1600 – 2000 diary calories. A men about 2000 – 2500. With fast food you can surpass this with facility.
For example, croissant, hamburguer, pizza. The fats and saturated sugars of these foods are installed directly in the conflicting zones: abdomen, thighs, hips.
Fats and cholesterol: fast food is usually cooked with unhealthy vegetable and animal oils and fats that increase the level of cholesterol, settle in the arteries, threaten your heart and may even benefit the appearance of certain types of cancer, such as colon cancer.
Excess of salt: this type of food contains excessive amounts of sodium, especially sauces (ketchup, BBQ) and chips. This is very damaging to your tension.
A fast food menu gives you large amounts of bad nutrients and few of those that your body is interested in: vitamins, minerals and quality proteins.
