Eating fast food causes an addictive pattern in your mind but in the end all you end up is overweight lethargic and not feeling good about yourself. This is me, so what happened when I ate a fast-food meal? No big deal right? Well it is a big deal because when they hit your stomach good things start happening believe it or not that's that dopamine release in your brain because dopamine and serotonin are going wild you feel great. Oh my gosh this tastes wonderful. It does right for the first few minutes but things are also get going on inside your body that aren't so great. Your pancreas is secreting more and more insulin to deal with that massive sugar overload from the fries from the white bun from the soda insulin does one thing and drive sugar into cells but it does something else that tells your body to store fat. Why else would you eat a meal that big and that many calories unless you're about to go into hibernation? That's what you do when you hibernate you grow big-bellied. Those fat cells actually grow in size they start to secrete even more toxic substances leading to heart disease diabetes and so many other things. All that sodium cause your blood pressure go up to your heart beating twice as fast against twice as much resistance and in your brain. You no longer releasing dopamine but instead your brain is signaling you to release cortisol. Cortisol is a chronic stress hormone that ironically tells you to store even more fat and last but certainly not least.
What isn't going on in brain 30 minutes after my meal?
There's no more dopamine there's no more serotonin! You are lethargic and feeling unhappy. Not feeling good about yourself and that is why when you first eat a fast-food meal you feel great and 30 minutes later you feel terrible.
Would you be willing to try to make some changes and eat healthy food?
After knowing this facts, i really given up all fast foods and enjoying some home made food even if it's simple as scrambled eggs
