Diet: Unlikely at 21 that you are going to have a heart attack from eating poorly but you are cheating yourself of having higher energy and a better sense of self by eating poorly. Also your poor habits will accumulate over time and eventually as you age you can suffer significant consequences. Best.

Jack in the box: If you eat a fast food diet, you are likely to become obese, diabetic and hypertensive. This will take a few years but the calories , salt and fats add up. Heart attack risk will go up with the changes.
