The Hidden Connection Between Fast Food And Obesity

By Rajesh Shetty

Is there a connection between Fast food and obesity?

The answer to the above question is a big yes! Research scientists say that

"fast foods increase the risk of obesity in regular consumers by encouraging intentional overeating."

Fast food and obesity are closely linked. Studies have shown that fast foods are very high in energy density (the amount of calories different foods contain weight for weight) and these high density foods can cause people to accidentally eat more calories than they need.

A typical fast food meal has an energy density 150% more than an average traditional meal. A fast food meal contains many more calories than a similar-sized portion of a healthy meal.

Many supermarket ready-meals and convenience foods are also very energy dense. To stem the tide of obesity, it's important that we don't just swap one unhealthy meal for another.

Fast foods also contain high amount of sodium(salt), oil, refined sugar and refined flour which are no good to the body. This combination of the foods is the most health harming and causes obesity.

Ayurveda medical science says that refined sugar causes obesity, acidity, dental cavities, osteoporosis, high cholesterol levels, migraine, kidney deseases etc. and leads to metabolic disorders.

Fried fast foods cause acidity and indigestion. Refined flour is made by removing the outer cover of the grain. This reduces the nutritional value of the grains by removing fibre. Foods deficient in fibre give rise to constipation and irregular bowel habits.

Many diet and weight loss programs which advice fast foodS for weight loss are greatly mistaken in their approach.You are advised to always keep away from such fad diet plans.

Health and weight loss can be easily achieved by following a healthy weight loss program which recommends lots of health foods like fresh fruits,vegetables etc. in your daily diet.
