Why do we all eat junk food? It must be taste that is so tempting or the accessibility around us. But what I really believe is the reason Is that it is just convenient to make up a junk food party. Not even a party, simply junk food it is all around us. It’s so cheep! Businesses know that we love it and they even make it easier for us to buy it. They even make promotions like “but two get, delivery for free”, because the know you want to get it hot and fast. Pizza, hot dogs, burgers, french fries, candies, ice cream and much more are everywhere around us. And we all love them, despite how harmful we know they could be. It’s hard to say “No” when you are starving and there is nothing else around. It’s even hard when you are not hungry, but your friend gets one double cheese burger from Wendy’s. It is so tempting that it feels almost like autopilot and we run next in line to get one too.
Accessibility is mostly the reason why we get junk food I get it. It is life draining to walking around and trying to resist every junk food. We all get distracted and tempted, but it is easier if we just avoid it. Do not get closer to these places, do not go to that party where they serve chips for entre. That will build over time and it will get a habbit.
Junk food is fast. But do you know what is also fast – a banana, an apple, any kind of fruit, even a cucumber. But I know, it looks funny walking on the street with a cucumber. Get a lunch box and don’t let the food control you, take control of the food you eat.
Also there is a lot of peer pressure around this topic. That’s why junk food meets people. It not so easy to say “No” to pancake when your friend gets one before you. I know that feeling, I sold my self to that hundred times. But rather know I prefer to wait for my junk food day. So you can make one too.
