If you are eating a burger or hamburger every day then you must know this!
Hamburgers got their name from Hamburg, Germany where a cut of beef called the Hamburg steak is from. This evolved into what we now know as the hamburger.
If you are truly limited to a fast food meal, say for lunch due to time constrictions of a job (or two), then broaden your choices. Look for a bigger portion of greens/veggies, less meat (don’t Supersize), and lean the beverage. Water, tea, or coffee is a good thing versus junk foods. Junk Foods are full of calories, fat, and excess sodium.
Having a burger every day can be bad for your health. For example, a single hamburger contains 500 calories, 25 grams of fat, 40 grams of carbs, 10 grams of sugar, and 1,000 milligrams of sodium, which is enough to cause havoc in your system.
After 15 minutes of your first bite of burger, you will experience a massive surge of glucose. This triggers the release of insulin, which makes you feel hungry again in a few hours. Repeating this pattern can increase the risk of diabetes. In scientific terms, the process of taking excessive calories in one sitting puts oxidative stress on cells.
Always having a meal high, which is loaded with saturated fat can be harmful to your health. When a group of healthy men was fed with food high in saturated fat, it was found that their arteries were significantly impaired and did not dilate as much. This restriction of blood flow and can lead to cardiac disease later in life.
Taste is the sense that brings pleasure in eating. Don’t tie it to the mundane repetition of the easy purchase. Cooking your own or appreciating variety brightens the anticipation of a new day. But don’t avoid them if you like them; just don’t eat a burger every day. Everything in moderation.
A high amount of sodium can have a negative impact on the blood vessel.
The choices of the food you eat every day determine where health settles. So next time you have the temptation to grab a burger, think twice!
