When I was presented with the challenge of going on a fast food diet for a month straight, I was confident that I could do it.
I had been a fan of fast food since my childhood and I was sure I could handle it without any issues. Little did I know what I was getting myself into.
The challenge was to only eat fast food for a month straight, three meals a day, seven days a week. I was excited and ready to get started, electing to begin on a Monday.
I started off strong, beginning with an Egg McMuffin for breakfast, a Big Mac and fries for lunch, and a Whopper and fries for dinner on my first day.
As the week went on, I continued to eat fast food for every meal, but I started to feel the effects of my diet. By the end of the week, I was feeling sluggish and tired.
I was also having difficulty sleeping, and my stomach was constantly churning from all the grease and fat.
I decided to go to the doctor to make sure I was still healthy, and they found that I had gained 5 kg since the start of the month.
They said the large amount of unhealthy fats and sugars in the fast food had caused my cholesterol and blood sugar levels to spike.
The doctor warned me to stop this diet immediately, but I was determined to complete the challenge. I continued to eat fast food for the next two weeks, and I started to notice other changes in my body.
My skin was looking dull and I was breaking out in acne.
My weight had also continued to increase, and by the end of the month I had gained 10 kg. I was exhausted and feeling embarrassed and ashamed of my body.
I was also having difficulty breathing and had developed high blood pressure.
At that point, I knew I had to end the challenge and get back to eating a healthy, balanced diet. I started to clean up my diet and cut out fast food altogether.
I also started exercising regularly and within a few months, I had lost all the weight I had gained.
I learned my lesson the hard way, and I will never try a fast food diet again. I realized that while fast food can be tasty, it’s best to eat it in moderation.
If I had listened to my doctor and stopped the challenge earlier, I could have avoided a lot of health issues and physical changes.
