ONCE IS ENOUGH
Yes, even one meal affects your health. If you eat an unhealthy meal-ice cream and chocolate cake, soda, fries, and cheeseburger-it does negatively affect your body. The opposite is also true. Eating one healthy meal will begin to repair the damage. This all according to a study mentioned in the January 15 2008 issue of Time magazine.

When you eat that high-sugar, high-fat meal, the sugar causes a large spike in your blood-sugar levels. Over time this increases your risk of having a heart attack, but there are negative reactions in the short-term effects as well, such as:

  • Free radicals are generated
  • Blood vessels constrict
  • Tissue becomes inflamed
  • Blood pressure can increase

When you eat healthy foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy proteins, and high-fiber foods, your blood sugar will remain more stable. The researchers pointed out that the more you eat junk food, the more you crave it. This happens at a hormonal level as the normal balance is disrupted and you are no longer satiated by healthy foods.

If you carry abdominal weight or don't exercise the blood sugar effects will be more pronounced and cause more trouble.
