Fast Food Devil

Fast food is a problem for a lot of us in our daily lives. Most of us have incredibly busy schedules and it’s often way easier to grab food on the go then it is to make food. Fast food is linked to increased risk of obesity and should only be eaten in moderation and I learned this the hard way.

When I was in high school, I worked part-time in a fast food restaurant. At first I wouldn’t let myself eat the food but before long I was eating it every time I worked. Not only did I gain 40 pounds from eating it but it also made me feel gross and tired all the time. I quit that job and have rarely eaten fast food since. One thing you should think about when you’re eating food like that is about how much more time and effort it takes to lose the weight later. I gained that 40 pounds very quickly but it took many months more to lose it.

Eating healthy, homemade food is much better for you than any of this other stuff that is premade and served to you through a drive-thru window. If you want a burger, make it yourself. Most likely you can have an equivalent burger for significantly less calories than one from a fast food restaurant.

Think about what you eat and plan ahead if you have to by making meals ahead of time. Food is the first step in managing weight. If you don’t put it in you, then you don’t have to work it off.
