off Effects Of Unhealthy Eating

Fast food has taken the world by storm. Due to its convenience, most people tend to have fast food rather than having a homemade meal. With their busy lives, people tend to take the easy way out, without having to cook at home. However, have you ever thought of its health affects? So here are some of them for your knowledge so that you limit fast food for only a few times per month.

1. Nutrition deficiency
A healthy diet is a meal with a balance of nutrients such as protein, carbohydrate, vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and many more. Each of these nutrients have different functions in our body and hence all are equally important. However, you probably will only focus on the main few nutrients, ignoring the rest. This imbalance can cause many nutrition problems in you. Some of the nutrients that we don’t pay much attention to are calcium, fiber, potassium, vitamin D etc. Lack of these will cause serious illnesses. Adding fluids such as the creamy soup, juices and ample amounts of water can uplift your diet.

2. Chronic disease
As mentioned above, malnutrition can cause chronic diseases. The nutrients you take in will contribute to fight disease in your body. Lack of these can cause chronic diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, heart failure etc. Along with eating healthy, daily exercise is a must. If you don’t have time to go jogging, simply take the stairs at office.

3. Extra pounds
Most probably, you may not have time to work-out and you may be sitting in your cabin the entire day and coming back home. Have you ever wondered what is gaining you those extra pounds? Well, the answer is of course your eating habits. When was the last time you brought your own lunch from home? Probably not after middle school. The oil contained in fast foods are extremely harmful to your body. Always eat a light dinner such as soups, vegetarian noodles in UAE etc. but remember to eat a proper heavy breakfast which is the most important meal of the day.

4. Mental health issues
Bad eating habits not only affect your body, but your mind too. When you are always hungry and feel tired, you are not able to complete your tasks which then leads to dissatisfaction, dizziness, constant headaches, and eventually depression. For example, if you are overweight, you might feel isolated which then leads to lower self-confidence.

The point to remember is that bad eating habits affect both physical and mental health equally. Intake of a balanced diet, regular exercise and being happy are some of the things you can do to avoid such problems.
