My addiction to junk foods

I enjoy eating at fast food joints so much that I can’t do without such foods on a weekly basis. However, I discovered that I have been putting on a lot of weight while my blood pressure has been on an upward swing for some time now. I want to know if this development is due to my consumption of junk food and what I should do to kick my addiction.

Eating foods such as red meat, fried food, pastries and sugary treats may trigger inflammation, raising your risk of cardiovascular disease. Sweets and foods made with highly refined grains, and sugar-sweetened beverages can cause spikes in blood sugar that can lead to a lot of weight problems. This is why junk foods have been linked to an increase in body weight and poor health.  However, a diet rich in fiber, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables are very healthy and should be encouraged. Maintaining good health doesn’t happen by accident. It requires work, smart lifestyle choices, and the occasional medical check -up and tests.
