Love yourself enough to live a healthy lifestyle
In our daily routine from morning to midnight we eat many things, but the question occurs on do we know what exactly we are eating? Are we aware of our daily nutritional requirements?
In today’s world, every human follows a diet, however, very few are aware with what exactly their body requires. We should know the difference between healthy and unhealty eating. Let’s start with unhealthy eating first as we all love eating unhealthy products, irony but true!
What is unhealthy eating?
Overeating of milk products, sugar, flavoured food and pungent food (foods with strong smell).
Consuming cold food and raw food.
Over or under eating is also a part of unhealthy eating resulting into poor intake of micro nutrition (carbs, fat and proteins). Unhealthy diet includes overeating of fatty and greasy food. Excess consumption of ready to eat processed foods.
Medical conditions due to unhealthy eating
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Cardiovascular disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Eating disorders
- Tooth decay
When junk food is consumed
Often consumption of junk food results in storing excess fat and processed sugar in our body which leads to increased risk of obesity, cardiovascular diseases and many other chronic health conditions.
People also tend to eat too much in one sitting and those who have satisfied their appetite with junk food are less likely to eat healthy foods like fruits or vegetables.
