Addiction to unhealthy foodAddiction means when we get used to of a particular habit and that habit somehow starts affecting us negatively. In spite of us knowing that we should not be much habitual to that thing or process, we get to stick to it on regular basis. Addiction also means when we intake something in excessive amount. These days people are addicted to a lot of things like internet, online shopping, some unhealthy food habits. Some people have an addiction to drugs and alcohol which impacts their health heavily.
Addiction to unhealthy food is very common these days. This is leading to a lot of diseases. Unhealthy food especially includes the junk food that we eat. Junk food includes chips, burgers, pizzas, Maggie, pasta, noodles cold drinks etc. This type of food, when eaten rarely will not impact. But eating such type of food on a regular basis can lead to obesity, diabetes, n number of diseases. This upsets the tummy and can affect us unknowingly.
Food addiction is very common these days. Once people start getting the craving for it, it gets hard for them to overcome that habit. In any way, after a particular period of time, they will again tend to get that food.
I have seen some people have a bad habit of having Tea multiple times in a day. Though we say that we should have a cup of tea in the morning, having excessive of it, will cause much harm to us. It is recommended to have one or two cups of tea in a day. When the limit is increased, the amount of caffeine will increase which can lead to anemic conditions in us.
Anything consumed in a limit is good but excessive of it causes damage. Addiction to different types of food is a disease to mankind. It impacts our mind and body both.
We should try and make strong resolutions to avoid food that upset our health. Though it is hard to stop ourselves completely, we can start decreasing the amount of intake first and then slowly and steadily make promises to ourselves to correct our eating habits.
We could also make a habit of noting down the places where healthy food is available to eat and should prefer and try to go to those places.
Once we are able to make up our mind to have a healthy diet, we will be healthy and could live longer.
