You start eating....: ...A better diet. Lose the junk food, which means the chips, the nuggets, the cookies, the fries, and anything else that's processed/fried/fatty/comes out of a plastic bag. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and you will be amazed how this problem will likely go away. Read more

Does eating junk food make you crave it more later on?

Does eating junk food make you crave it more later on?

Yes: Yes, there is evidence to suggest that fatty, salty, and/or sugary foods can contribute to subsequent craving for those foods later. The good news is that you can acquire (or re-acquire) a taste for healthy treats too. So for ex. If you like to eat candy a lot, but stop & start in with fresh fruits, you'll soon prefer the natural sweetness of an apple over the artificial sweetness of a lollipop! Read more

Is eating junk food once in a while bad for your health and sweets?

Suit yourself: Life's too short and too difficult already without struggling to live within the strict proscriptions of militants. A sensible diet (avoid the worst grease, sugar and salt) most of the time is useful; binding yourself to avoiding every candy bar or snack chip that you actually want is being obsessive rather than living a healthy lifestyle. A focus on aerobic fitness is even more helpful. Read more
