One Thing You Should Give Up to Lose Weight

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC May 4, 2012


Fast food = fat food

Let's start off by calling fast food exactly what it is: fat food. The only thing is, there's very little food in fast food, as it has no nourishment. It's something that you shouldn't merely cut back on -- it's something that has no place in your diet. Read on for some convincing details that may change your mind if it's a weakness for you.

The facts

What's in fast food? A lot of fat, calories and sodium -- far more than you need. In a recent study, the average fast food lunch contained 827 calories, when the average person only needs about 1,800 to 2,000 calories per day.

The non-ingredients in fast food

Not all foods are created equal, especially when we're talking about fast food. A recent OrganicAuthority.com article by Kimberley Stakal makes a sobering point about not getting what you think you'll be getting at fast food restaurants.

Take scrambled eggs from McDonald's, for instance:

They’re just eggs, right? Sure, if by “just eggs” you’re also including sodium acid pyrophosphate, citric acid, monosodium phosphate and nisin (all preservatives), as well as liquid margarine (which is made from liquid soybean oil, water, partially hydrogenated cottonseed and soybean oils [trans fats], salt, hydrogenated cottonseed oil [trans fats], soy lecithin, mono- and diglycerides, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate [preservatives], artificial flavor, citric acid, vitamin A palmitate and beta carotene [color]).


Someone trying to eat right may think, "I'll just buy some scrambled eggs at McDonald's while on the go. Eggs are good for you, aren't they? At least it's not a cheeseburger and fries." But then you're getting a whole lot of other non-ingredients with those eggs that will only cause you to gain unhealthy weight, up your blood pressure and put you at risk for a whole host of other ailments. Choosing one fast food item over another still isn't helping you.

The verdict?

Avoid fast food at all costs. What you think is cheap and convenient now will only cost you far more in the long run, including your health and medical costs. Remember: fast = fat!
