Say no to junk foods

The next time before you enter into your favourite McDonald's or Pizza Hut or gobble up a packet of Lays, it would be good if you were aware of some of these facts:


  • A can of cola contains 10 teaspoons of sugar.


  • A super-sized order of McDonald’s fries contains 610 calories and 29 grams of fat.


  • A king-sized Burger King meal, (Double Whopper with cheese, large fries and large drink) contains 1,800 calories (mostly derived from fat and refined sugar). To ‘burn’ these calories would take nearly 6 hours of cycling (at 20 miles per hour). 


  • If you intake a packet of Lays, vow not to have salt in your foods for the next 2 days because you have already exhausted you salt quota for 2 days.


  • Artificial ingredients can contain an alarming variety of chemicals. For instance, ‘artificial strawberry flavour’ can contain about 50 chemicals… and no strawberries at all !!!!!!!
