I believe that skipping a meal is way better than eating junk food. While both are bad, eating junk food causes people to gain weight while skipping the meal keeps those extra few calories off. Eating junk food can also start bad habits to where it will occur everyday and then an eating disorder is slowly starting to form. Later the outcome will be becoming over weight
When you skip a meal you are more likely to binge eat the next time you have food. This is because your body is hungry and needs to make up for the loss of food. Skipping meals can also lead to fatigue and deprives the body of nutrients.
Having some food in your system is better than having no food at all.
It would be quite the opposite than what my opponent has to say, if you skip meals you are more likely to develop and eating disorder because your body will already be used to going without food.
There is no way to binge when skipping just one meal. It's perfectly healthy to skip one meal a day. Plus just because your extremely hungry after skipping a meal having a regular meal will still satisfy the hunger, so if the person who's eating has common sense when they get full they will stop eating. Unlike when eating junk food which will start unhealthy eating habits.
Well eating junk food doesn't allow you to obtain the needed nutrition to stay healthy. This causes you to feel fatigued and have a lack of energy needed to complete daily tasks. Also eating junk foods add high levels of sugar the but your metabolism under stress causing your pancreas to produce high levels of insulin to prevent blood sugar spikes, known as a sugar rush. Since junk foods, along with fast foods, don't have efficient amounts of protein and good carbohydrates your body crashes. Junk food also contributes to poor performance and obesity and it can damage you heart and liver. http://www.fitday.com...
As an added bonus junk food can lead to depression and addiction. people who eat fast food regularly are 51% ore likely to develop depression than those who eat little to no fast food. http://healthyeating.sfgate.com...
Skipping a meal is better because even eating junk food causes you to be unable to perform daily tasks. Junk food offers little to no nutrients that doesn't help the body in anyway. Even though you may may a bag of chips every now and again that soon turns to twice a month, then twice a week, then daily, then twice a day. Every now and again is the start of habit.
