  • Get Healthy: How To Remove Junk From Your Diet

    Just as the name suggests junk food is junk. Junk food is full of calories that do absolutely nothing for your body. These are called empty calories because they have no or very little nutritional value. The truth is that most of these calories come from sugar and fats and they willdo nothing but increase weight and body fat.

    Junk food can also cause you to retain water which will make you feel bloated and sluggish. Thiscauses you to feel tired instead of having the energy to get up and move around. The long term effects of eating junk food can be extreme from causing you to be overweight to causing the clogging of arteries that leads to heart attack.

    Why do people love junk food? The truth is that our brains have very positive reactions to fatty and sugary foods. It induces feel good hormones in the brain that actually mimic the effects of powerful addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin. It is no wonder that we need them.

    How many people have cravings for spinach?

    How To Remove Junk Food From Your Diet

    It starts with some common sense.

    Many people say that it is cheaper to eat junk food than it is to eat healthy food. Or they use the excuse that they just dont like the way healthy food tastes.

    First you will have to reprogram your taste buds to get used to eating healthy foods. You have been eating junk food all of your life, this is what your body is used to and what it will crave but it is up to you to retrain your body and your mind to crave healthy foods.

    It is not cheaper to eat junk food!

    Lets forget about the fact that you will save thousands on medical bills by eating healthy and lets look at what you are spending right now.

    Now lets look at a bag of oranges. One bag of oranges costs about $4 on average. When you buy a bag of oranges you will get 8-10 oranges. This can make as many as 16 snacks which can last up to four days for a family of four.

    Now you have to look at which you would rather your family or yourself eat.

    Potato chips are loaded with fat, salt and a lot of calories. 1 ounce of Lays plain chips has 160 calories, 1 grams of fat and 170 grams of sodium (7% of daily allowance).

    An orange has 0 fat, 0 salt and only 45 calories. Plus, its loaded with essential nutrients, like vitamin C (a whopping 85% of the daily recommended allowance), plus potassium and fiber.

    When eating a bag of potato chips you may be watching television, letting all of that fat attach itself to your body, but, when you eat that orange, you are energized simply by the smell of it.

    And, this is just one example of how junk food compares to healthier options. Next time you go to the market do some comparison shopping and you will see that the prices of healthy food are not so different from junk food.

    There are also plenty of healthier snack options available that can fill kids lunch boxes with healthier alternatives.
