Processed Food Cause Obesity

One of the leading causes of obesity is erratic food habits and the imbalance of food intake and energy expenditure. An imbalanced diet which rarely includes fruits, vegetables but high in fat, sugar, and meat can induce overeating and weight gain.

Also, processed foods, mainly junk food contain preservatives and fat that make the food palatable but increase the risk of obesity.

People who eat fast food meals three or more times a week are notably heavier than those who don't consume fast food very often. According to a study, from Temple University, Philadelphia.

The body mass index of those consuming three to six fast-food meals per week was significantly greater than the BMI, a measure of body fat based on height and weight, of those who reported never consuming fast-food meals or consuming one to two fast-food meals per week.

Fast-food restaurants could encourage healthier eating by offering a variety of tasty, healthy, and reasonably priced foods.

the authors note that restaurant chains should be commended for increasing the number of healthy offerings; continued efforts are needed to make healthy food attractive to the palate and pocket.
