Ever have that thought that you can just “burn off” that junk food you just had? Not so fast.
While indulging sporadically is fairly harmless, consuming high amounts of processed foods on a regular basis isn’t a good thing. And it’s not only your waistline that suffers. High amounts of bad fats, sugar, and modified ingredients can cause your organs like your liver and kidneys to clog up and slow down. Over time this can cause weight gain, lethargy, poor sleep, and changes in your hormones. There’s no amount of exercise will fix this on its own.
Keep your cheat foods saved for certain occasions and your body will thank you in the long run!
