Why does the fast food industry keep booming in America? By now, it’s common knowledge that fast food is low in quality and is remarkably unhealthy. Yet, why and how does the fast food industry continue to make billions of dollars in revenue every year? Are people not concerned about their health?
Here’s the real reason behind America’s dependence on low-quality cuisine.
Fast foods are processed foods which are extremely high in fat, sugar, and sodium. They’re also full of additives and chemicals that are designed to preserve and enhance the taste. While these facts are widely known, Americans continue to consume fast food.
We’ve all heard that more than two thirds of Americans are overweight. What you may not know is that 80% of Americans suffer from some form of fatigue syndrome that can be caused by eating low-nutritious foods. It’s not just about being overweight on the outside, but more about what’s going on with your body on the inside.
If you’re suffering from fatigue, you’re experiencing extremely low energy levels because you have weakened adrenal glands. These are two tiny glands that sit at the top of your kidneys and are responsible for helping the body properly respond to stress. You’ll experience fatigue when your adrenal glands are imbalanced, which can then cause iritability and excessive cravings for fatty, sugary foods. Sound familiar?
With energy levels low, you’ll seek out “easy” foods that provide short-term energy boosts. And the worst part is, once you start indulging in these foods, you continue to deplete the little energy you have left. Sounds nearly impossible to overcome, doesn’t it? You’re not alone in thinking that.
Can I stop this vicious cycle?
The majority of Americans that suffer from fatigue syndrome might not understand why it’s happening or how they can reverse the vicious cycle. We have outlined helpful tips to build a healthy eating routine in our Betr program. The key to is to take control of your diet.
– Eat protein with every meal (eggs, natural meats, and poultry are the best sources of protein).
– Incorporate cooked vegetables in your lunch and dinner meals (Vary your proteins and your vegetables so you don’t get bored eating the same thing every day).
– Reduce all sweets intake and avoid eating processed foods (All the chemicals pumped in junk foods are harming your body in more ways than you think!).
