Imagine watching Netflix, you put your hands deeper and deeper in that salty, oily bag of crunchy chips and then when you’re done, you suck each of your ten fingers clean and wash it down with some orange soda. Burp! You know the saying you are what you eat? Well, that is true. All the trash you feed your body literally makes it just that, trash! In these modern times, we have gotten so lazy as a society that we eat out more and prepare home cooked meals less. We stuff our bodies with empty calories, fatty, sweet, salty foods that have little to no nutritional value to our bodies.
Then we wonder how we get sick ever so often or how we are gaining weight but we “don’t eat a lot.” We complain and still we stuff ourselves with the same crap every day. But let’s be honest with ourselves, if we had to choose between a deep dish pizza and steamed broccoli, what would we choose?
The fast food industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Last year alone a whopping profit of $198.9 billion was made. That money comes out of our pockets and all that junk comes in our bodies! But it’s delicious junk…..omg, let’s stop!
What percent trash are you? Take the quiz and find out.
1Pick a drink
Drinks can be very refreshing. We consume these things to complement our food that we eat or just as a refresher. There is a very wide variety of juices nowadays and most are not healthy, sodas for example. Some people are addicted to sodas and consume more than twelve bottles a day. It is estimated that on average, one person consumes approximately 44.7 gallons of soda per year. The sugar content in these are astronomical and can lead to many diseases.
2Choose a cookie
Who doesn’t love cookies? We leave them out for Santa, we have them with warm milk, in ice cream and deep fried. Cookies are sweet, sometimes gooey and sometimes chewy treats. They are a great way to ward off hunger pangs throughout the day. But these little treats are super high in sugar and you can gain weight by having too many. Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
