Healthy Living: Benefits of Giving Up Fast Food

Written by Lisa Jillanza

Ever since the very first fast-food restaurant – White Castle – opened its doors in 1920, Americans have had an unhealthy obsession with fast food.

According to the CDC, more than one third of all Americans eat at a fast-food restaurant daily. And with more than 200,000 fast-food options, it is becoming more and more difficult to give up those tasty treats.

While experts have been speaking for years about the unnecessary dangers of fast-food consumption, new studies have shown that a regular diet of fast-food items is even more harmful than ever and is causing harm to parts of your body that you may not have thought of with each delicious bite.

So, what happens if you give up fast food? 

Experts say that you will be at lower risk for heart disease and diabetes. And you are also at lower risk for Alzheimer’s Disease. 

Studies show that the hallmark Alzheimer’s protein – beta amyloid is higher in those with higher junk food diets. And with less blood sugar, experts say that you will not just lose weight, your mood will also improve. 

A fast-food diet can damage neurons and even cause depression. 

So, the best way to cut your unhealthy obsession with fast-food? Experts say, start small. If you attempt to cut these foods out “cold turkey,” they you may experience symptoms of withdrawal – like mood swings, depression, and irritability.
