Avoid ultra-processed foods


Ultra-processed foods usually contain additives like highly refined oil, added sugar, preservatives, salt, colours, artificial sweeteners, and flavours. They contain low-quality ingredients such as added sugars, inflammatory fats, and refined grains. Being low in protein, fibre, and micronutrients, they mostly provide empty calories. These foods are easily over-eaten as they stimulate the reward centre in the brain. This excessive consumption of calories causes weight gain, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic health conditions. #avoidultraprocessedfoods #processedfoods #healthyeating #processedfood #eathealthy #healthyfood
