Popular Christmas foods you might want to avoid this season

We usually get carried away with all the joy, love, and sharing going around in the Christmas season. There are a lot of foods to eat and lots to drink. This is also a season where people generally consume lots of junk foods, which often puts so much pressure on our body and its organs.

To help guide you to eat healthy this beautiful season, we have compiled a list of foods to avoid.

We consume a lot of junk during festive periods like this. We consider it fun, but we subject our organs to pain and pressure. If you love your health, watch out for the following foods this season:

1. Sugary Drinks

Those common beverages today with their added sugar is one of the worse things you can put into your body in this modern time.

Our brain doesn’t register sugar contained in these drinks as food, and when we take in extra calories from our meals, we add to our overall calorie intake. Large calorie intake can lead to higher insulin resistance, and it is also associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes. You sure don’t plan to get sick from a joyful Christmas celebration.

2. Most Pizzas

Pizza has become probably the most popular junk food in the world. This is perhaps because of its great taste and how convenient it is to eat.

As great as pizza is, most of them contain a lot of unhealthy ingredients, and it is extremely rich in calories. It will do you a whole lot good to avoid or reduce the amount of pizza you eat this season.

An alternative to the usual commercial pizza could be homemade pizzas.

3. Industrial Vegetable Oils

 The last few years have seen people increase their intake of added fats. This is based on the fact that people are suffering from related diseases due to increased consumption. Remember to cut down on the fried foods this Christmas.
