Most of us know that stopping by the drive-thru for fast food isn't the healthiest choice. It's not a secret that fast food is typically high in fat, sodium, and sugar, and low in fruits, vegetables, and fiber - the things we all need in our diet. However, it's convenient and affordable and that's what draws us in - especially those who just simply don't have time to prepare dinner every night.
The downside of letting fast food win is that it's just an unbalanced meal and long-term consumption can have negative effects on you physically and emotionally.
Firstly, the average-sized fast food meal contains entirely too many calories - on average about 827 to be specific. consuming these excess calories puts you at risk for weight gain and weight-related issues that stem from obesity like diabetes. In fact, regularly eating fast food over an extended period of time increases your chances of Type 2 diabetes.
Secondly, because most fast food meals are high in fat and low or devoid of fruits and vegetables, your blood vessels are hit hard ever time you eat a fast food meal. Fruits and veggies help you balance a high-fat meal which reduce the adverse effects on the blood vessels. Studies have found that within 3- hours after eating a high-fat meal, the blood vessels function abnormally. For a healthy person, this is only minor and temporary. However, if you have coronary disease, this can cause a heart attack or stroke.
