Why do we keep doing this? Most of us know that junk food is tasty with plenty of sodium in the food. So why do we keep eating junk food that is not good for us. Photo online. Are you a food junk junkie.

Any food can cause these problems if consumed too much. Too much water can be bad for people. Moderation is all that matters. Have a bowl of chips and a bowl of salad and a bowl of ice cream and a protein shake. Doesn't need to be big servings, justs moderation.

@amadeo I'm just saying actual facts from doctors I have had. Yeah don't have a candy bar every single day, but a special treat now and then is okay.

@amadeo When I was out I would always open salt packets to eat. I got tired of looks and comments I like dining home. at times people are rude when strange things happen.

Junk food is so yummy and a lot of times so inexpensive compared to healthier foods. A psychiatrist I went to one told me to eat protein to help with depression and to not go long between meals. Junk food is not good for us but eating it in moderation is okay I think

I guess we are literally addicted to junk food when we get out of control with it. For many perhaps it's a habit that started when they were kids. It doesn't help either that it's often cheap and easily accessible.

@amadeo That's very true. I hear that when you get stuck on junk food, you lose the taste for "real" food - some people just rather indulge in what their tastebuds favor rather than health.

No, I am not a junk food lover. The only junk food I like are potato chips, but I have some only a few times a year, not often.

Too much junk foods are totally dangerous. If ever you ate them, need to detoxify it with yogurt and ate more fruits and vegetables then drink more alkaline water.

@amadeo Yes yogurt is more healthy than ice cream. I don't know why but that's what the doctor says on his Facebook Page.

I must admit to loving crisps I think you would call them chips. I do not like any fast food though so I guess that is one saving grace! Dump the Junk!

Well, I think junk food manufacturers know how to keep people addicted to their product. We all do things we know aren't good for us, but it is very hard to stop.

I have my moments. Usually on weekends when watching sports and other TV programs. Wintertime also contributes to the junk food eating. I eat much healthier during the rest of the year. I also heard people eat when depressed as you mentioned.
