Pretty bad if you don't have ellte genetics
Chad eats pizza everyday and still has a 6 pack
Depends, if you are still active and do a lot of sports you can compensate much better than someone who just sits around all day.
But it isn’t good in any case
its not bad for your health at all
you dont really get essential vitamins from such food and i dont think junk food affects your stomach in a good way as well
Pizza, some snacks and cookies - cool
Soda, sweets - be careful or better live without it
People have different metabolisms obviously, but if you have active lifestyle you can eat shit food everyday and not get fat. Still doesn't mean it's good for you. Candy and soda very bad, stay away.
Look at Japan's life expectancy and the US :)
Well it's bad for physical health sure, but I think it can't be even worse for mental health
When i was lifting i did 2 half year sessions.
1. only "healthy", good foods, 0 junk at all.
2. whatever i wanted, pizza, snacks, hamburgers,etc
Only thing i did was keeping my calorie intake the same, soi would not be in a deficit.
To my surprise, there was basically no difference. Sure, you cant go on with eating chocolate all day, cause you will drain your daily calories with ~ third of the food that will make you feel full and you would be hungry all the time, but generally eating junk and good foods together would not make a huge difference in how good i felt health and energy wise.
I have to say tho, that eating too much sugar is still not recommended, and in the long run im sure it would have a huge negative effect.
Eating junk on regular basis while maintaining a quite balanced diet and calorie intake is not that bad though as most people say
Alough i have to add: i have pretty good genetics, so this wont apply to anyone obviously
everything above none is too much
i dont know the long term but i prefer to stay away from those foods or if i have them its once twice a week but im from a country where food is healthy in general so i cant experience the real fast food like USA
it's not only quality, but also quantity.
there's also better junk food and worse junk food.
it won't be good even if you eat only 'fine' junk food, but it's probably not the end of the world if you do too, as long as you eat a reasonable amount.
Health is not only shown on weight, while you are young, it may still be fine, but in the 30ties it will slowly catch up with you.
the dose makes the poison
eating a burger isn't exactly unhealthy, but eating 2 burgers on every meal of your day can be
Sugar is probably the most important thing to stay away from. Pizza and other fast foods will only harm you if you eat ridiculous amounts of it.
just check if those metrics are in healthy range:
your bodyfat percentage
your blood pressure
your resting heart rate/heart variability
your nutrient levels
your fasting insulin levels (+ make sure glucose level never spikes)
your apoB levels
your thyroid hormone levels
your total+free testosterone levels
your inflammation levels
if yes then not much to worry about
I would say that once, maybe twice, a week would be okay having junk food as dinner as long as you're active physically
First of all start tiers of junk food like eating pizza is not big problem but colaaa candies can be deadly also there is even tiers of candy
Over 5g of salt a day becomes unhealthy
Over 10% of caloric intake that comes from sugar is unhealthy
Over 10% of caloric intake that comes from saturated fats is unhealthy
Eating below 400g of veggies/fruit a day can also be considered unleathy.
Major things to look upon when it comes to nutrition.
too much salt and most of the calories are coming from fats which is bad
who cars! 40 years eating junk food doing drugs and drinking alcohol>>>>>>>>>100 years eating leafs!
I feel like in moderation everything is fine. Like I have a 6pack and still drink coke, eat some sweets etc. But I don't eat much of it, maybe a glass a day and fast food 1-2x per week.
tldr in moderate amounts all is good
Added sugar, fried food, red meat, dairy are all bad for your health. All contribute to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Why take the chance, we know what the optimal diet is; whole grains, beans/lentils, vegetables, fruit (berries especially), nuts and seeds. The farther your sway from this diet the more you open yourself up to preventable health problems.
It's very good for the health, that's why they call it junk food
doesnt it depend on calories
Depends on how often and how much you eat
