Which one would you choose? The calories and macros only paint a part of the picture. Really the hidden ingredients and chemicals are the true bad guys in this situation 😈 Think about how you FEEL after eating fast-food compared to a home cooked meal 💯 Below is a breakdown of some of the bad guys:
High Fructose Corn Syrup: The chemical process used to make high fructose corn syrup, the glucose and fructose become separated. This allows fructose to mainline directly into your liver leading to fatty liver which can eventually lead to diabetes. —
Vegetable Oil: The creation of vegetable oil involves pressing, heating, various industrial chemicals and highly toxic solvents. This unnatural form of oil has been shown to increase inflammation, your risk of cardiovascular disease and the Omega-6 compound in it has been linked to cancer.
—- Bonus info: This 2007-2010 showed that people who cooked at home 6-7 times a week eat less calories even if they weren’t specifically trying to lose weight. Researchers also found that those who cook at home are less likely to choose fast foods when they eat out and rely less on frozen foods for their meals.
