“Fast food” is a loose term that can include anything that can be cooked quickly. In common use, it has come to mean burgers, pizza, and street food.


Consuming “fast food” once in a while is not bad for health. However, eating only fast food or having it every day can be harmful to your health. A healthy body requires a balanced diet. This diet should include adequate quantities of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. A diet that includes “fast food” for the majority of your meals will not contain the required nutrients.


“Fast food” including sweetened drinks like colas are also known to be a cause of obesity. Obesity causes its own set of problems including hypertension, diabetes, other heart conditions etc.


So, while eating “fast food” once in a while or for a change is not bad for health, making it a major part of your diet can give rise to nutritional deficiencies.
