In the Battle Against Malnutrition, UN Expert Says Junk Food Is the Real Culprit

Despite multi-national efforts to fight worldwide hunger and improve nutrition, it just isn’t happening, and the United Nations is blaming junk food for ever-increasing rates of diabetes and diet-related diseases, even in the poorest countries, Civil Eats reports.

It’s no secret that processed foods account for 90 percent of the added sugar consumption in the U.S., so it’s not surprising that in areas where these foods are becoming available, that poorer nations are beginning to show the results of a junk food diet. Eating this garbage promotes insulin resistance and chronic inflammation, which are hallmarks of most chronic and/or serious diseases.

Processed foods thereby encourage weight gain and chronic disease because they’re high in sugar, fructose, refined carbohydrates and artificial ingredients, while they are low in nutrients and fiber. They’re also addictive and designed to make you overeat; ultimately encouraging excessive food cravings, leading to weight gain

You can wean yourself off processed foods in seven easy steps. Begin by shopping for fresh, whole organic foods, and when you do go for a packaged item, read the labels wisely: You can find “real” ingredients in the supermarket if you read them carefully and choose organic products. Next, wean yourself off excess salt, trans fats and sugars, give your palate time to change, treat yourself well by planning your meals, relish what’s on your plate and enjoy the true satisfaction of the genuine flavors of real foods, healthy fats and natural flavors.
