Bad Diets are Bad

Updated on June 8, 2010

What about "Eat on the Go" Meals

There are fast food places everywhere. If you turn around a corner, they're there beckoning you to come on in. Notice that in the grocery stores, convenient stores, as well as discount stores all have racks of candy, cookies, chips and soft drinks lined up right there at the checkout. While waiting in line, it really makes it hard for you to resist. This may be hard to believe but, a large sporting goods/fitness store I was in offers a lot of different kinds of candy bars right there at the checkout counter too. So, how are we going to stay fit and healthy with all this temptation around us, right? In addition, with the busy, fast paced lifestyle people have today, eating lunch or dinner or just a simple snack on the way has already become a way of life for a lot of people nowadays. However, in the end, are all these “eat on the go” or instant meals really worth the time or effort they save? NO! They aren't.

Unhealthy Diets, Unhealthy Eaters

An unhealthy diet that contains high fat and high sugar is really bad for your health. This is the reason why we have the term “unhealthy”. These type of foods can cause you to gain a lot of weight. And all of us know that packing on the pounds is not good because of a lot of reasons. Your heart will have to work overtime when you're overweight. In addition, extra weight is the cause of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It places you at risk for heart disease, as well as type two diabetes. Not to mention, being overweight consumes your energy and it does not look good.

Unhealthy eaters basically are not all overweight. There are a lot of skinny folks whose diet is also just as bad. In fact, a few underweight people have an issue gaining weight mainly because of a very poor diet. Human body needs a certain amount of protein, vitamins as well as minerals that junk food cannot provide. And the result, when your diet is lacking, you're actually depriving your body of what it needs to be able to function properly and effectively. This then turns you into a prime candidate of all kinds of illnesses as well as diseases.

Unhealthy Eating and Hemorrhoids

An unhealthy diet basically can cause heart disease, diabetes, obesity, stroke, hypertension, osteoporosis, and other kinds of cancers. Unhealthy eating can literally be a real pain in the butt because it causes hemorrhoids. Yes, this is all so true; unhealthy eating can cause you to have unhealthy bowel movements as well like constipation or diarrhea, thus a greater chance of developing hemorrhoids.

Therefore, in the end (excuse the pun), eating on the go is not worth the problems that you will actually experience later, no matter how much time and maybe energy it may save you at present. So the best thing to do is slow down and take the time to eat healthier. After all, your life depends on it.
