A dietitian has revealed what really happens to your body when you eat fast food – bloating, exhaustion and getting hungry faster.
Susie Burrell, from Sydney, said the most popular meals contained nearly as many calories as you need for an entire day, along with more sugar, salt and saturated fat than you are recommended in almost two days.
And while eating ultra-processed foods leads to weight gain and health risks such as heart disease and diabetes in the long run, Susie said that your body can quickly change just one to two hours after consuming a cheap meal.
“The reality is that there are several nasty side effects, even if you only eat fast food occasionally,” Susie told her blog.

Susie said that when you overload your stomach and brain with an influx of fat, calories, carbohydrates, and sugars, you probably feel hungry again sooner.
“This means that although you have drunk 1,000 calories in less than 10 minutes, the body loves this energy density so much that it craves again very quickly,” she explained.
You will not only feel like high-fat, sugary foods, but Susie said the high salinity of average pizza, hamburgers, and fried chicken leads to bloating and exhaustion.
“The high salt content will generally retain extra moisture because the body is trying to work overtime from the huge amount of salt to which it has been exposed,” she said.
‘This is why you can feel tired, bloated and listless for an hour or two after eating fast food. For our heart, it also means working harder, which generally gives the body more stress. “

She said that if you eat a meal that is high in fat and carbohydrates, your body is “forced to release extra insulin in an effort to control blood sugar levels.”
“This means that every time we eat too much with a large meal deal, there is increased pressure on our insulin levels, which ultimately leads to slow and insidious weight gain over time,” Susie said.
She said that high levels of insulin overtime lead to weight gain, hunger, insulin resistance, diabetes, and inflammation in the body.
If you still want to enjoy your favorite takeaway meal, Susie recommends eating fast food only once a month and learning to enjoy a little less.
