It can be very difficult to avoid a diet of fast food. Whenever we go out we are surrounded by burger bars, pizza parlours, chippies, and supermarkets - all selling the stuff they know we crave. And if we are not out and about we are indoors where our tv's are bombarding us with ads for takeaway type food. Because it is all so readily available and affordable it can quickly become a habit.
Processed foods contain various combinations of sugar, salt, and fats. According to research these tend to make us want and eat more sugar, salt, and fats. So we need to redress the balance by cutting back on our weekly intake of these fast foods and replace them with fresh fruit, vegetables, and meats. We can, of course, indulge ourselves with the occasional ready meal or takeaway. Article kindly provided by
