Overcoming Fast Food Addiction – YOU CAN DO IT! + 10 SCARY Ingredients - Wise Eats Podcast Clips
In Episode 12, I touched on the importance of eliminating fast food from your diet if you want to get healthy and improve your body. Ditch the Taco Bell, Burger King, and McDonald’s. I can already hear the 2009 version of myself cringing at the thought of eliminating fast food, but, it happened. I went from having fast food pretty much every day for most of my life to barely touching the stuff. These days, it doesn’t even register to me as food. Of course, the idea of fast food sounds pretty good when I REALLY think about it, but then I just have my normal, delicious, healthy food that I prepared ahead of time and forget all about it. It’s simply not worth it to poison myself when I know the negative effects it will have on my mood, energy levels, and focus. Of course, I do eat out from time to time or for special occasions, but almost never fast food, it really is the worst of the worst. It’s usually some combination of refined flour, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavor and colors, trans fats, salt, genetically modified toxins, petroleum products, cow feces, and antibiotics. Your body doesn’t even recognize these foods as fuel, so instead of digesting them, it stores them away as excess body fat. I cringe when I think that I’ve lived more than 2/3 of my life eating these types of foods on a regular basis. These days, my cheat meals consist of home cooked food or a dinner out with my wife, where I’ll fully enjoy myself for one meal then get right back to normal eating afterward.
Another poison disguised as food that you should avoid as much as possible is processed food. Chips, cookies, cakes, and snack foods are off limits. If you are buying something packaged, check ingredient lists and avoid chemicals you don’t understand. If it has some type of health claim like low calorie or low fat or low sugar on the package, don’t trust the marketing. Read nutrition fact labels and choose foods with simple ingredients. Educate yourself and take accountability for the things you’re putting in your body.

10 years ago, I was 270lbs, addicted to fast food, eating it every single day, and abusing my body with reckless abandon. Today, I’m in the best shape of my life and hoping to inspire others to transform their health. One of the main ways I got here was by completely changing my diet and philosophy surrounding food, which is exactly what I shared on Episode 12 of the podcast.
