Is Junk Food Good or Bad?

Are you the type of person who feels in heaven when you eat junk food? Well, let me tell you that I am exactly like that. Although junk food is delicious, it is harmful to our health, you gain unhealthy weight, and it increases the obesity rates.

Junk food is harmful to our health because they lack the nutrients that our bodies need. Our bodies need a certain amount of sugar, calories, carbohydrates, etc, but junk food does not contain the “good”  calories and sugars. In fact, they have extremely low amounts of nutrients and they usually contain higher amounts of fats, sugars, and calories. Because of this, people gain unhealthy weight through the consumption of junk foods.  

The way that junk food leads you to gain unhealthy weight is by fats, sugars, cholesterol, and sodium that can be found in these foods. You will gain weight rapidly while you are not filling up your body with healthy nutrients. This unhealthy weight that is gained rapidly, leads to having harmful impacts on your health and could even lead to obesity and high levels of cholesterol

Obesity rates have increased during the past years and this is due to an excess in junk food. As mentioned before, the large amounts of sugars, carbs, and fats found in fast food is what makes you gain weight which later leads to obesity. Due to the fact that these foods taste amazing, they are faster to order, and they tend to be even cheaper, people will continue to buy them and this will only harm the consumer’s health. Junk food may fill you up and leave you satisfied, but it’s not filling your body with the nutrient that you need.

We know that these foods look amazing and they taste even better, but is it really worth eating them to damage our health? Besides looking and tasting amazing, junk food has no other positive aspects. They are just damaging your health. Next time you have to choose between junk food and a healthy meal, think about your health and choose to eat healthily.
