Fast food can cause the body much less harm, if you observe a few rules of its use. This radio Sputnik said nutritionist Elena Solomatina.
So, relatively harmless will be a homemade Burger made of good meat, wholegrain bread and plenty of greenery. French fries can be replaced with baked potatoes without a lot of vegetable oil and ice cream sorbet from frozen berries with yogurt.
Prepared food from fast food restaurants also has a right to exist, but with restrictions, the doctor claims. For example, chicken nuggets can you have if you remove the crust, and one of the buns in the Burger can be replaced with vegetables or simply put aside. Should give preference to the Shawarma chicken and not lamb, it should ask to replace the mayonnaise with tomato sauce. “Take fast food only in safe places,” he said Solomatin.
Earlier in Rospotrebnadzor warned that the main danger of fast food to health is the content of TRANS fats, the use of which may harm the heart and cause inflammation in the body. So, TRANS fats can increase levels of “bad” cholesterol and damage the inner lining of blood vessels. Inflammatory process that can be triggered by eating food with a high content of TRANS fats increases the risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and arthritis.
