7 amazing things that happen to your body after you give up junk food

7 amazing things that happen to your body after you give up junk food

Of course, we know that junk food is bad for your health. From obesity to lifestyle diseases, there are a number of dangerous consequences you can face because of your love for junk food. But if you want some more encouragement to give up or at least heavily cut down on fast food, packaged food and processed food items, you must read about the immediate amazing things that can happen to you when you give up junk food, as told by nutritionist Akansha Jhalani.

1) Your body and face look less bloated– Cutting out the junk from your diet also majorly helps you to also cut out the salt. The excess salt intake from the fries, pizzas and fried snacks over the time not only affect the blood pressure but also dampen your taste buds. Excess salt also causes water retention, bloating and kicks in lethargy. Don’t be surprised if your face and body suddenly feel less bloated after you cut down junk.

2) You start fitting into those slim jeans
Of course, only cutting on junk cannot magically make you fit into slim dresses and pants, but it plays a huge role in weight loss. When you eat less junk, you consume less saturated fat. Fat has been the devil for a long time but the saturated fat is the one we need to block out. Saturated fats from unhealthy sources are known to cause a rise in bad cholesterol (LDL), raise cholesterol levels and increase obesity. Here are some delicious, healthy vegan dessert recipes.

3) Your hair becomes stronger
Going off processed food and cutting off the preservatives, stabilizers and chemicals has a great effect on your hair. You tend to consume more fresh produce which gives you vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that strengthen your hair.

4) Your skin becomes clearer and starts glowing
The key to a radiant skin does not lie in a tube of beauty cream but it lies in what you eat. Ditching junk food helps you regulate your hormones and protects you from the harmful side effects of preservatives.

5) You sleep better
Foods high in sugar and unhealthy fays not only make you gain weight but also disrupt your sleep. These foods obstruct your natural neurochemical processes and cause an erratic sleeping pattern that causes irritability and lethargy. So it’s a no-brainer when we tell you that you don’t just get sleep, but good quality, peaceful sleep when you’re not eating junk. Here are some bedroom makeover tips to help you sleep better.

6) You keep diabetes and other lifestyle diseases at bay
Processed food comprises simple sugars that cause a spike in your blood sugar and these erratic spikes pose a threat to your health and predispose you to diabetes and other diseases.

7) You FEEL good and think better
When you cut off processed food from your diet and include fresh whole foods, it nourishes you with nutrients that help you feel good, think better, concentrate more and increase your focus. Here are tips to help your children eat healthy by celeb nutritionist Pooja Makhija.
