Usually human immune system won’t accept high calorie food. This causes more disorders in the human system. People suffer from health upsets, constipation, and dehydration due to such junk foods.

First basic necessity for a human being is health. In olden days people used to live more than 100 years healthily, but apparently that is not the case these days.Actually speaking, fast food has been very fattening. The production process involved in creating fast food added a lot of greasy and fat content to foods. They are quick but at the same time they spoil our health at a faster rate.

If we have good health, we can earn anything in this world. So it’s good to be health conscious. Junk, that means something extra. junk food is a food with high calorie content that tastes good with less nutritional value. However, if you are health conscious and worried about how the food you eat might be harming your body secretly then here are the 10 convincing reasons for backing off from junk food.


1. Junk food causes Obesity.

High calorie, unhealthy fat.. All these are extra empty energy. Something extra will definitely go sit on your hips. It won’t allow you to fit inside skinny jeans. Presently, we see 1 in 10 people obese. Extra calories in a junk food lead to epidemic obesity. It’s very easy to put on weight, but it’s really hard to reduce the same. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. High bad cholesterol levels in our body are hard to cut down. Usually high calorie content will not be broken by enzymes in our body. If it remains unbroken it’s again a dead energy. Here we can understand one thing that an onset of a disease is just the dis-functionality of enzymes in our body. Even after knowing why should we give space for such disorders? Our health in our hands. Avoid Junk and stay healthy.


2. Increased sugar levels.!

Fast food preparation units add artificial sweeteners to our food. It may give the required taste but it is absolutely unhealthy. Anything artificial will not suit human body so easily.The reason is twofold: Loading up on sugar-sweetened junk food tends to lead to weight gain, which is a risk factor for diabetes. Second, sugar-loaded drinks deliver a quick rush of sugars to your body, which over time can lead to insulin resistance and inflammation. So once in a while it’s fine. Every day junk meal is not advisable.


3. Quick and dead food..

These foods are called fast foods only for this reason. They are quickly and easily prepared , but the question is that ‘is our food cooked properly ?’ . No one in this world has patience to wait for healthy food , as long as it tastes good. since junk food is a quick food, but it supplies a lot of poor nutritional energy to our body . Empty energy causes a lot of discomfort in our health conditions. So just don’t go for quick food, it might be risky.! Hence learn the art of saying no to such foods.


4. More salty and spicy…

Usually in junk food we find increased salt and spice levels. This might be very tasty but it starts harming your body secretly. Increased salt level will directly lead to increase in blood pressure levels. In recent times, we have seen many young people suffering from blood pressure, hypertension etc. these are purely due to the unhealthy food habits. In this fast paced world, not only fast foods are increasing but also the rate of diseases. We all know that salt is an ambiguous ingredient. Neither salt should be more, nor it should be less, it will spoil the dish either ways. Same ambiguity analogy can be given for human body as well.


5. High Calorie content.

Fast foods are tasty convenient food served at reasonable price. Many people even after knowing that they contain more calories, they visit these restaurants for their main meal . We need around 400-600 calories in a normal healthy meal. But this junk food meal provides us about 200 and odd extra calories compared to a normal meal. These extra calories are accumulated in the body and are not used to release energy .These calories get collected in the blood vessel and will lead increased pressure in heart, to pump the blood. All these finally end up in hypertension and other heart related disorders.
