Health Tips: Everyone eats junk food with great passion. It is especially the first choice of children and youth. They prefer natural foods instead of junk food. Which affects their health. Junk food increases the risk of chronic diseases ranging from serious heart diseases and obesity. According to health experts, our body converts junk food or packaged foods like fries, pasta, burgers into triglycerides, due to which people can suffer from dangerous diseases. Let’s know its disadvantages…
What is a triglyceride?
Triglycerides are a type of fat (lipid) in our body’s blood. When we eat, our body converts unnecessary calories into triglycerides. This can lead to excess accumulation of triglycerides in the body’s cells. Hardening of the arteries in the body, or thickening of the artery walls, also builds up triglycerides and significantly increases the risk of stroke, heart attack or serious heart disease.
Disadvantages of saturated fat
Foods high in saturated fat can quickly raise triglyceride levels. Saturated fat is found in large amounts in fried foods, red meat, egg yolks, dairy products, butter or fast food. Long-term use of these substances increases the risk of heart-related diseases.
Sweet things are dangerous
However, doctors advise diabetic patients to stay away from sweet things. But, in people with diabetes, it is very possible that our body starts making triglycerides immediately after eating or drinking something sweet. In such a situation it is better to stay away from sweet things.
Stay away from baked goods
The amount of saturated fat in the diet should be controlled or kept to a minimum to avoid the possibility of various health problems caused by high triglycerides. Stay away from baked items like patties, buns, cheesecakes, etc. This can easily control the level of triglycerides.
