3. Metabolism Speed Decreases
Our body is built in such a way that when you eat something, almost immediately the muscles start to break down the food and take in all the nutrients and your muscles grow and all that. In short, the metabolism starts to do magic. However, when you eat too much junk food, the metabolism speed deteriorate. Even though you are eating the same amount of calories, the body now functions differently and as a result of the slow metabolism, you can’t break down food like you used to. Instead of breaking them down for energy, you are now storing it as fat to break down later on in the day. You now feel bloated, lazy and lethargic due to the junk food.
