Every once in a while we find ourselves craving for processed foods. It’s just hard not to! It has been established that processed foods cause us to overeat and experience uncontrollable cravings. But like what we’ve said before: processed foods are bad! They are mostly chemicals with almost zero nutritional value.
So what specific areas in your body do processed foods affect? Here are some of them:
Skin. Processed foods cause wrinkles! The high amounts of sugar in processed foods can lead to the degradation of collagen and elastin in your skin, leading to loss of elasticity and firmness and premature sagging and wrinkles. Also, sugar can cause inflammation in the body which can aggravate acne and rosacea.
Brain. You might think that eating processed foods makes you happy; however, it has been found that consuming artificially sugar-packed foods may cause depression overtime. The brain can become addicted to the high-octane pleasure of processed foods and when it doesn’t get its “fix,” feelings of depression can take hold. Consumption of processed foods may also increase your risk of memory problems and reduce your ability to control your appetite.
Blood sugar. Sugar thrives in processed foods! And when experts try to trace the cause of the increasing rates of obesity and diabetes in the country, fingers immediately point to the hidden sugars found in your favorite processed foods.
The above are just some of the many areas in your body that can be affected by processed foods.
