Processed food might well be convenient and even tasty, but everyone knows that it’s not as good for you as fresh, natural food. It’s filled with artificial preservatives and additives and it’s made from refined, cheap ingredients that have had much of the goodness stripped out of them.
Here are just eight of the amazing things that will happen when you cut out processed junk food from your diet:
1. You will lose weight
Processed foods often contain lots of added fats, which are bad for your heart and they will make you pile on the pounds.
2. Your complexion will clear up
Stop eating all those manufactured fats and other unnatural ingredients and it will show in your skin. In a matter of just a few weeks, you will have fewer breakouts to deal with and your skin will take on a rosy glow too.
3. You will have more energy
Processed foods often contain SIMPLE carbohydrates that will give you an instant energy boost, but won’t provide you with sustained energy for the day.
4. Your digestive system will start to work properly again
Most processed foods contain very little, if any, fiber and that can have a disastrous impact on your digestive system.
5. You will spend less money
It’s a fallacy that eating healthy costs more. If you buy natural ingredients and make your own food at home, you will spend less than if you live off pre-prepared food, or takeaways.
6. You will start to enjoy food again
You will be able to taste the more subtle flavors and start to enjoy your food again.
7. Your mood will improve
The ingredients that manufacturers use in processed foods are often the lowest quality that they can get away with and that means that they don’t contain the nutrients and fatty acids that are needed to control blood sugar level, hormones and for the healthy functioning of the brain.
8. You will sleep better
When you stop eating all those artificial additives and preservatives, you will also find that you get a much better night’s sleep too. No more tossing and turning at night.
