“It’s all about our brain. The taste combination of fatty and sweet is perceived by them as the most attractive,” said nutritionist-cardiologist Asiyat Khachirova.
According to the doctor, if the body requires fast food every day, it means that the brain is already accustomed to a certain combination of smell and taste. It turns out that the habit of eating high-calorie, but nutritionally useless food has already been developed.
So that giving up junk food is not painful, it’s better to first understand what a standard lunch consists of, which customers order at a fast food restaurant. This method will help you choose an alternative to the wrong products.
For example, burger buns are made from flour with the addition of improvers. It does not contain the important nutrients and fiber that are found in the shell of the grain.
The same principle works with the sugar contained in sweet soda, which is also consumed by fast food lovers.
Not to fat
Another feature of fast food is high fat content, which means high calorie content.
Moreover, the amount of fat that enters the body with fast food is so large that a person experiences a feeling of heaviness after such a snack.
All these tricks are designed to reduce the cost of the final product and make food available to the mass consumer.
Healthy lifestyle will help:
“Grains and pasta saturate the body well, but at the same time they do not cause a sharp rise in blood sugar. This means that satiety from them will be long without the use of fatty sauces,” Khachirova noted.
In addition, the doctor recommends regular consumption of seasonal vegetables. They enrich the diet with vitamins and minerals, and also fill the volume of the stomach without going overboard in calories. But if giving up a quick snack is difficult, then you can find a healthy alternative to it. For example, cook the same burger according to a homemade recipe.
