Unjunk the Junk

Life today is not like how it was before. A long time ago, people ate food that was very good for their health. They ate food not contains chemicals, preservatives, artificial colours, and flavours. People also spent a lot of time cooks their own foods. Therefore, those people were not affected by the food that they ate, because all the foods that they had was natural and healthy. That is, they did not have any problems with their health. Foods can be classified into two types: junk food and healthy food.
Junk food is simply an unhealthy food, food with poor nutritional value; junk food contains very high fat and sugar. But healthy food is rich with nutritional value. Also junk food has preservatives, chemicals, artificial colours and flavours. But healthy food is not containing these substances.

If I exercise can I eat junk food and still stay slim? Most frequently asked question...

It would certainly be fantastic if it was the case, but I'm afraid working out doesn't give you free reign to pig out on any foods you like. It’s not just the calories that are the problem with a 'junk' food diet, but the fact that too many highly processed foods high in fat and sugar and low in fiber crowd out the more nutritious foods. That means you might not be getting enough vitamins and minerals and important phytochemicals which protect against cancer and heart disease. Also you will increase your risk of heart disease with a high fat diet - whether you exercise or not. It's also easy to overestimate the amount of calories that can be burnt when you exercise - for example you'd need to cycle for over an hour to burn off a heaped tablespoon of mayonnaise. That’s not to say you can't enjoy the spoils of an active lifestyle and tuck in to the odd pudding, plate of chips or chocolate bar when you fancy though. But the best formula for a healthy, trim body is exercise and a low fat diet used together.
