Fast food kills!

  1. 1. Fast food kills! If your fat Your on a red line
  2. 2. Why we eat fast food? Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking. While convenient and inexpensive for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories,  fat , saturated fat, sugar, and salt. Fast food chains and restaurants have responded to the public's increasing awareness about nutrition and have attempted to help people concerned about health. For example, they now make ingredient and nutrition information available on their menus. Despite these changes, however, in order to maintain a healthy diet, it is necessary to choose fast foods carefully.
  3. 3. Eating fast food is dangerous. With obesity rates continuing to grow in this country, there's never been a more important time to skip the golden arches. Most fast food is high in fat and sodium and lacks any real nutritional value.
  4. 4. We need to make a change! Several aspects of fast food combine to create a detrimental habit. Fast food is, at its core, fast; people become hooked on the convenience of drive-through or delivery, with negative results in the long term. There are also claims of structural changes to the brain because of high fast-food consumption, with effects similar to drug and nicotine addiction. These, combined with lavish multimillion dollar advertising campaigns designed to lure consumers, create the perfect environment for unbeatable cravings.
  5. 5. We can start healthy! Who said eating healthy is boring? We can eat healthy, and have as much fun eating it as we would with any other food. But the good thing about this kind of food is that its all good for you, and with a little exercise you will have a happy and healthy body!
  6. 6. Healthy is the way Eating healthy is especially important in this day and age. There are so many different diseases that can be caused by unhealthy eating, from cancer to diabetes to stroke. Eating healthy helps you to lower your risk of disease, increase your productivity, have more strength and have more energy. But, what is healthy food? If you want to eat healthy the first thing you have to do is understand what types of foods are healthy and what types of foods aren't.
  7. 7. Eating healthy is fun! Healthy foods or a healthy diet will consist of several elements. There is protein, which is the building block of muscles. There is fat, as well. You need a balanced intake of  omega 3 , omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids to have a healthy diet. There are vegetables. You need all sorts of vegetables, especially green vegetables that are especially fibrous. There is also fruit. Fruit provides vitamins for your diet. Whole grain food, such as oats, rice, pasta and breads are also known as an important part of a healthy diet. Drinking water is another important part of a healthy diet. If you drink large amounts of soda, you might consider switching out some of your soda drinking for water drinking. Contrary to popular belief, drinking soda does not cause you to become dehydrated, however it is as not as effective at keeping you hydrated as water is.
