Overview

The fast-food trend in India has been here for decades now. By now you would think Indians would know this, but let us repeat this once again: among the greatest correctable risks related to gastroenterology and digestive disorders in the modern diet of Indians is unhealthy processed food. These fast-foods invariably lead to obesity, which is quickly becoming a sort of a national epidemic. Obesity has been proven to increase the risk of and actually encourage heart disease, diabetes and a plethora of other chronic health issues. While being convenient for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are high in calories, fats, sugar and salt, which puts people at risk of being overweight. This is no secret, yet lakhs of Indians eat fast food every day.

Burgers, Pizzas and Fries: The Official Symbols of Fast Food

No fast food chain is complete without burgers, pizzas or fries. While these in moderation are not bad, but all of these, along with soft drinks which are served with them contain lots of fats with no fibre. Just one meal of fast food exceeds the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of fat and sodium without supplying any vital nutrients or complex carbohydrates which are needed by the body.

Salt: A Slow Killer in Excess

As if this wasn’t enough for you already, fast food is also loaded with salt, which contains sodium. Sodium contributes to high blood pressure and strokes. Sodium tends to compete with calcium in the body, thus too much salt can lead to an increased risk of osteoporosis.

Trans Fats: The Worst Type of Fat There Is

Fast food, in addition, also often contains trans fats. These raise you bad cholesterol or LDL (low density lipoprotein), which increase the risk of heart disease.

So, What Should You Do? Make Better Choices, Of course!

Fast food is tempting, but you’ll stay clear of it if you know what’s good for you. Strive to eat a balanced diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. Throw in eggs and meat every once in a while. These foods are the ones which actually give you energy when you need it, help your digestion, keep your weight in check and improve your health.
