In our fast-paced world, it is easy to fall into the “fast food trap”. A study had 18 healthy adults cut back their exercise and eat 2 fast food meals a day, and after just one week, half of the group began experiencing elevated levels of ALT enzymes–a common indicator of liver damage. By the end of the study, the entire group had gained an average of 14 pounds. The conclusion? Our bodies just aren’t made to handle more than the occasional indulgence in fast foods.
