Obesity, Diabetes and Fast Food Meals

You elevate your risk of health problems such as obesity whenever you eat fast food meals, according to a 2007 article in “The New York Times Health Guide.” This is because you are unable to control the conditions that occur when your fast food meals are cooked in the same way that you can when you cook at home. A study published in a 2005 issue of “Lancet” analyzed the effect of fast food consumption on weight and insulin resistance. The study included more than 3,000 participants over 15 years. It discovered that participants who ate fast food meals more than twice a week gained about 4.5 kg and were twice more resistant to insulin. The findings support the assertion that fast food consumption increases your risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Another study published in a 2004 issue of “Pediatrics” drew similar conclusions about the effect of fast food consumption on children.

We know that there are pros and cons to home cooked meals but we hope that our posts will make “I don’t know what to fix” not one of the reasons you decide on fast food over home cooking.
