Figure 1:

Supersize Me was released in 2004; Morgan Spurlock documented his diet of strictly fast food for one month. He ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner at McDonald’s. He was only eating too much fast food. The chronic stress, fear, and worry, he purposely put in his body was surreal. Supersize Me showed his 24-pound weight gain and his cholesterol jumping a whopping 65%; Morgan’s fit body went from fit to fat. His body fat percentage was only 11%, then after one month, it went up to 18%. This month of eating too much fast food could’ve been his last food. In just two weeks he developed a sick liver, which means that his liver developed enough fat on it to leak enzymes. He reported that the more he ate fast food when he didn’t have it, he started to crave it meaning he developed a fast-food addiction. Can you imagine the effects of fast-food consumption on the average person for most of their adult life?

Since 2004 when Supersize Me came out McDonald’s has not disputed these claims in court. This leads us to the question; are fast food corporations, even in Houston willingly to gamble your life to the will of the almighty dollar? 

Read the stats to make up your mind:

  1. 25% of Americans would visit a fast-food corporation for at least one of their meals everyday. 
  2. Only 300,000,000 per year was spent on fast food in 1972 however today that amount exceeds 100 billion a massive increase. 
  3. French fries are the most eaten vegetable in the US. 
  4. On the McDonald’s menu, only seven items are sugar-free. 
  5. According to the obesity action coalition, the number of fast-food outlets has doubled since 1970. 

Fast food is cheap which means that it’s made with cheap and often unhealthy ingredients when you’re struggling to put food on the table, you’re sacrificing your health.

The unhealthy ingredients in fast food:

  1. Trans fats are often used to make cookies, donuts, chicken nuggets, pizza, and French fries. They used to increase the shelf life of foods and make them crispy.  Trans fats can lead to diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke according to the American Heart Association.
  2. Nitric salts can be used to preserve and prevent bacterial contamination. Some foods that have nitric salts are meat, bacon, corn beef, smoked fish, ham, and sausages. Eating food preservatives can increase the risk of cancer in your digestive tract. 
  3. Saccharine can be found in jellies, donuts, canned fruit, and many beverages. Consuming too much saccharine may increase your risk of cancer of the bladder, ovaries, uterus, blood vessels, and skin.

Figure 2:

  1. The butter flavor that is often found in Microwave popcorn, margarine, snack foods, baked goods, and candies is made from a chemical named Diacetyl.  The American chemical society reports that the effect of butter flavor is associated with harmful effects on the lungs and changes in the brain that can increase your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. 
  2. Some bread products use ammonium sulfate as a bread enhancer. Ammonium sulfate is often used in chemical fertilizers. 
  3. We use food coloring in pies, candies, sundaes, ice cream, syrup, soft drinks, cheeses, sandwich meats, and sausages. It gives them long-lasting color and makes them prettier. This increases our craving for sweets and makes us sacrifice our cravings at night. And these chemicals are the by-products of coal, tar, and other chemicals, that can increase the risk of certain cancers.
  4. Propylene Glycol can be found in packaged foods, such as drink mixes, dressings, dried soups, cake mix, soft drinks, popcorn, food coloring, fast foods, bread, and dairy products. It is an additive that prevents food from sticking together, drying out, or becoming soggy quickly, and is toxic in high doses.

Here are some of the long and short-term effects of fast food on your body:

  • High carbohydrate foods increase the body’s demand for insulin. This promotes increases eating too much, increases in craving for sweets at night, and craving for junk foods. You will start experiencing a decrease in your mental health, and increased fear, worry stress, and sleeping problems.
  • Research from 2018, and other studies show that the more you eat fast food the more you will get addicted to it because of the low nutritional value. 
  • According to a study in Science Direct, there is a causal link between a diet high in saturated fat, and simple carbohydrates, typical of much fast food, and a lower capacity for memory and learning. This could also raise the risk of and Parkinson’s disease

With the increases in the availability of cheap, easy, and quick fast food, there has also been a national increase in weight: Are you willing to play Russian roulette with your life when you eat fast food? Fast food is junk food. There are too many bad sugars in fast food. The unhealthy ingredients in fast food are making you fat and sick.

Here are some Weight Loss Tips to improve your mental wellbeing and make you feel confident.

Build a strong self-image of a person who looks slim and in great shape; sees yourself thin. See the benefits of how being fit and in great shape will benefit your life and the painful physical conditions that will be eliminated once you live the life of a thin person. Set to achieve daily performance goals that support your decision to lose weight. You achieve because you act. Start developing daily habits that are more effective because weight loss is a must for you. These more effective habits you will do every because you except to be comfortably fit and trim for the rest of your life and never be on a diet again. All action supports your decision to lose weight. You built a positive belief system that weight loss is easy and fun.

These suggestions will help create a more effective habit to eat like a thin person and do it like thin people do:

  1. Eat vegetables and fruits: they are typically loaded with probiotic fiber, which makes them very healthy for you. Studies show that people who eat the most vegetables and fruits are healthier and live longer than others.
  2. Eat fresh berries and avoid dried berries: Fresh berries are very healthy and packed with nutrients, fibers, and antioxidants, and have fewer calories. Dried berries have more calories and sugar.
  3. Fresh fruits and vegetables are low in calories and are packed with antioxidants and fiber: has more fiber-filled your stomach up. Focus on eating at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables (a serving being about ½ cup or a small banana or apple).
  4. Eat a balanced diet instead of drinking your calories. Fruits contain fiber and other plant compounds. When you eat fresh fruit, the sugar is digested very slowly and does not cause a spike in your blood sugar. 
  5. Even real fruit juices lack the fiber and the chewing resistance provided by whole fruits. This makes fruit juice, real or fake, more likely to spike your blood sugar levels.
  6. How to make a healthy plate: half of your plate should be packed with fruits and vegetables. Eat fruits and vegetables of all colors. Eat an apple instead of drinking apple juice. Eat mostly whole grains that are packed with mostly fiber, iron, and vitamin-b. Look at your palm: that is the amount of protein (beans, fish, and lean meats) that should be in every meal.
  7. Avoid having a do not eat list, or a list of foods to avoid, banning those foods will make you want it more.
  8. Consider replacing a Hershey Bar with at least 72 % dark chocolate bar.

Eat your fiber, when you eat foods that are high in dietary fiber such as grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and beans, your skin improves and will help you lose weight. You stay regular and lower your risk of heart disease stroke and diabetes.

  1. Eat eggs, yolk, and all. It is a myth that is bad for you because of your cholesterol content. The whole egg is often dubbed ‘nature’s multivitamin’.
  2. Read your food labels. Educate yourself by being aware of what is inside your food because many manufacturers often lie and misled you about the contents.
  3. Stay away from ‘diet’ foods. They are very and are usually labeled as fat-free, low-fat, reduced-fat, low sodium, reduced sodium, or low calories. They will always add other ingredients to make up for more flavor. This makes it ends up being higher in sugar or sodium, and higher in calories.
  4. Eat more plant-based protein foods. Here are some examples of plant-based protein, beans, peas (kidney, pinto, black, or white beans), split peas, chickpeas, hummus, tofu, tempeh, veggie burgers, unsalted nuts, and seeds.
  5. Healthy snacks for late-night snacking: When you crave food at night it is always best to feed your body. The best late-night snacks are hummus, whole grain crackers, veggie, oatmeal, popcorn, low-fat Greek yogurt, nuts, cottage cheese, eggs, avocado toast, or zucchini chips.
  6. Use and cook with healthy oils such as extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil.  Oils such as cottonseed, sunflower, soybean, and canola oils are highly processed and high in omega-6 fatty acids.  A high omega-3 may lead to your body being inflamed, linked to chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and autoimmune diseases.
  7. Cut back on white bread, pastries, starches, and sugar. This can prevent rapid spikes in blood sugar, fluctuations in mood and energy, and fat build-up.
  8. When eating your meal, eat your greens first. This makes you less hungry and less likely to overeat.
