Confession… I love junk food. If I could live off of it, I probably would. Chips, bread, chocolate, ice cream, french fries, I don’t think I would ever tire of these things.
I was not until I cut them out of my diet though that I realized how often I consumed these products. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks… Each of these usually contained some form of unhealthy food.
When examining what we eat, the junk food is overwhelming. These habits are usually mindless, but harmful too. We grab chips and a soda to watch a movie, fast food on the way home from works…little things adding up.
It is not easy, I know, but dejunking our diets can drastically change our lives. I completely eliminated junk food, but even small steps of taking junk foods out is a step in the right direction.
Eating healthy takes more thought, but the benefits outweighs the effort of planning. Energy, health and overall feeling of wellbeing could be side effects of eating healthy.
