Junk food is appetising and accessible. But unfortunately, junk food comes with little nutritional value and a lot of white carbohydrates. When junk food enters the body, it breaks down quickly and rapidly increases blood sugar levels. The sugars and fats present in it can also lead to weight gain. Excess weight has been lead to type 2 diabetes.

How to optimise junk food effectively
• Try to control portions or avoid food containing processed carbohydrates, as they have a high glycemic index.
• Consider swapping simple and refined carbohydrates with complex carbohydrates. They will keep you full longer, stabilise your moods and avoid causing spikes in blood sugar.
• Try focusing on fibre, protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats in that order.
• You may have a handful of nuts like walnuts, pistachios etc. between meals as they help reduce glucose levels and satiate you.

Additionally, junk food contains saturated and trans fat that can increase blood cholesterol levels and negatively impact insulin levels. Try substituting it with healthier alternatives rich in protein, fibre, and healthy fats.
