It’s tough to break bad habits. And those revolving around food can be especially hard to break. But there are some we do daily that you should avoid, because it can be really harming your health:
Don’t skip breakfast – it’s one of our worst habits – and you end up overeating the rest of the day because our bodies are starving and desperate for nutrients.
On the other hand, eating late at night is bad for our bodies, it can lead to disrupted sleep, indigestion, and a lack of hunger in the morning.
When eating proper meals throughout the day at appropriate times, it’s important not to overeat with huge portions! Excess calories may deposit as fat, leading to an increase in body weight, which leads to high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels, two risk factors of major health conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
And the choice of food is important too – too much added sugar can lead to issues like higher blood pressure, inflammation, weight gain, diabetes, and fatty liver diseases, which can be linked to heart attack and stroke.
Whatever your eating habits may be, it’s important to pay attention to the ones harming your health in the long run.
