During these past few years, we have seen a rise in health problems in America. One might think that this is due to pandemics, diseases brought by animals, or a new strain of the virus. While those to a certain extent contribute, that isn’t the biggest problem. Approximately 40% of Americans have self-inflicted health problems. Yes! Health problems brought to one’s self!
What could possibly be the culprit? Why self-inflicted? And why are so many affected! Simple, the answer lies in the lifestyle. Specifically, Americans are addicted to fast-foods.
For most Americans, it is very normal to swing by a fast-food restaurant and grab a meal. It happens to all of us at some point more than we admit to it. Of course, this is absolutely unhealthy. In fact, some would even say this is a Fast Food Genocide.
According to the recent research done by Food Institute, millennials alone spend 45 percent of their food budget on fast-food restaurants. While eating outside is fine occasionally, frequent visits will do damage to your health.
Many are familiar with that junk food, fast food, processed food, white flour, fat, and sugar are leading causes of many chronic illnesses. But few realize that these foods likewise may contribute to mental problems.
Think of your body as a computer. If the computer hardware is damaged, wouldn’t the software be affected as well? The same goes for your body. If your body is sick, how will the mind be able to operate properly?
What all of these unhealthy foods have in common is the number of calories in them. The more calories, the more unhealthy the food is, it seems.
Calories are important to the human body. They serve as the fuel for your body, and without it, none of your organs will function. If people consume enough calories a day, our lives would surely be better. But sadly, we often always have an excess of calories, which leads to health problems.
Typically, the required calorie for men is 2,700 calories, but for women is 2,200 calories. However, this can depend on several factors such as age, metabolism, weight, height, and body shape.
Fast-foods are notorious for the number of calories in the foods. Most of all, pizza chains. Today, we are going to take a look at one pizza chain and see if they are good for you or not. And that is Little Ceasar’s Pizza.
