Junk Food: What Leads Us To Consume It Frequently?

Junk Food: What Leads Us To Consume It Frequently?

A food item which has more calories but very less amount of nutritional value is referred to as junk food. It usually has high content of salt, sugar and fat. When we say junk food it includes convenience food as well as fast food. Our body needs various kinds of vitamins, minerals and fiber to be fit and healthy. junk food that we eat provides none of these benefits and puts us at a risk of getting unhealthy. All baked goods like potato chips, cookies etc. are prepared in such a way that they look appealing and mouth-watering.

Also junk foods have low satiation value- which means, they don’t make us feel full which often results in overeating or binge eating. Nowadays junk foods tend to replace the nutritious and healthful foods that our body requires to be healthy and fit.

For various reasons, people are more and more likely to choose a pizza or a donuts instead of a traditional dish that is much more nutritious and healthier. Have you ever wondered why? Also what happens if you eat junk food everyday?

Here are some of the reasons why we love fast (or junk) food so much and disadvantages of junk foods. To do this, we will analyze the biological, cultural and social factors.

1. Biological Factors

This factor is related to the effects on the body that junk food produces and that lead us to want to eat more.

In general, junk food produces a feeling of well-being and satiety because it stimulates the production of dopamine. This is a neurotransmitter that produces pleasure, relaxation and well-being. For this reason, people are often inclined to eat junk food when they feel anxious or stressed.

In fact, stress has long been linked to a poor diet. People tend to overeat foods high in fat, sugar, and calories under stressful circumstances. These stress-induced habits were verified in an investigation carried out in research. This research was aimed at discovering the relationship between test stress and change in diet quality. The researchers discovered that those who eat in response to negative emotions or because of the smell of food, among others, have a greater risk of making unhealthy eating decisions in times of stress.

2. Cultural Factors

According to research, this factor is related to custom, that is, the way of life that a person or family has.

Many people have gotten into the habit of consuming junk food at least 3 times a week. In the case of a family with children, this can be more detrimental, as parents spread the habit of eating fast food easily to their children, as they develop their dietary preferences at an early age.

Research carried out in 2007 and published in Public Health Nutrition, which sought to establish the potential influence of parents on children's eating behavior, found that the more frequent the purchase of fast food for family lunch or dinner, the lower the amount of nutritious food at home. Also, some related statistics obtained by the research indicate that the amount of vegetables served at lunch was much higher in families who ate 1-2 fast foods a week than families who ate fast food 3 or more times a week.

Another cultural factor is the sedentary lifestyle of the people, which indicates the little desire to move around and do some physical activity. These people prefer to order junk food as it is the quickest and easiest to obtain. In addition, they make the order through the internet so as not to leave home. Therefore, fast food complements well with sedentary lifestyle.

3. Social Factors

The junk food advertising is everywhere: on television, magazines, newspapers, on the streets and online. They aim to attract new customers and, in particular, potential future consumers. Therefore, children are the favourite target audience, since they are easier to influence with advertising and other mechanisms, such as attractive packaging, free toys and children's games in restaurants.

Another reason why people eat more fast food is that it is easier to get. It is not only that fast food can be ordered online easily, but there are more fast-food outlets on the street than traditional food. Research concluded that people are more likely to consume poorly nutritious foods due to local patterns of food availability. Thus, the concentration of fast-food restaurants would lead to people who consume more of these products.

Fast Food and Cancer

Fast food is characterized by being high in fat, with sugars that are easily and quickly absorbed, and even high in sodium and low in fiber. Therefore, they have a very low nutritional content, and their excessive consumption can cause various diseases and problems, such as overweight and obesity. Being overweight is known to be a risk factor for cancer. The higher the weight, the higher the risk of cancer. Do not stop reading it, you will discover, at the same time, the importance of maintaining an ideal weight.

05-June-2020 - Friday Morning Long Drive After Long Time

मैं पेशेवर काम कर रहा हूं, मेरा जीवन बहुत व्यस्त है। अगर आप मेरी रोजाना की दिनचर्या के बारे में जानना चाहते हैं, तो मेरे ब्लॉग को रोजाना पढ़ें। आज शुक्रवार सुबह, मैं लगभग 5:30 बजे उठा, फिर बालकनी में गया और देखा कि मौसम बहुत अच्छा है। लॉन्ग ड्राइव के लिए 3 महीने के लॉकडाउन के बाद अचानक प्लान किया। फिर मैंने अपनी कार की चाबी ली और सुबह 6 बजे के करीब नीचे चला गया। मैंने अपनी कार शुरू की और लगभग 100 किमी के लॉग ड्राइव के लिए चला गया। मैंने इस 3 महीने में बहुत सारे बदलाव देखे, पर्यावरण बहुत साफ है, सड़क खाली थी इसलिए मैंने अपनी ड्राइविंग का आनंद लिया। मैंने 25 किमी की ड्राइविंग के बाद एक जगह पर कार रोकी, फिर खुले वातावरण में 1 किमी दौड़ लगाई। बहुत समय बाद मैंने खुली जगह पर दौड़ लगाई। जाते समय सड़क खाली थी, लेकिन घर लौटते समय सड़क पर कुछ लोगों और वाहनों को देखा। आउटिंग के तीन घंटे बाद आखिरकार 9 बजे के आसपास घर पहुंचा। फिर स्नान किया कुछ ब्रेड स्लाइस के साथ एक कप चाय ली और मेरी सुबह की गतिविधि समाप्त की।                                                                 ------------------------

My running journey from 0 km to 5 km

                    My running journey started in  2017,  when I started facing minor health glitches . In 2016, I went for my medical check-up and I also want to have a medical certificate, which is mandatory for Schengen   Visa processing as I had an official  trip planned for Sweden. I gave a blood sample for tests and after the report came, I couldn't believe that I have high cholesterol and thyroid. I went to another hospital for my check-up and got the same report there also. Till then I was always thinking that I will never suffer with this kind of disease as I was a sports person during my school days. But I forgot one thing that after 2010 I stopped all my games and exercises.                 After that I was very much distressed and started thinking about my health. I started walking daily then one day I saw one person running, when I was walking on the road. I also tried to run but was not able to run even for 500 meters and stopped .                 From the next day on
