Red On Yellow Make A Hungry Fellow

I think it is safe enough to assume we have all done it and probably more than once; stopping by one of the numerous fast food restaurants and picking up a quick and easy meal.

There is nothing against that, as long as it is a sporadic event. When it turns into a habit and you crave the fatty, sugar-loaded foods more then once a week, you are in trouble and not only in the weight department.

Research has proven that fast food has a negative and even an addictive impact on your brain. Right of the bat, the combination of the red and yellow colors, which are used to promote these restaurants, has shown to provoke your metabolism and boost your hunger.

More so, just seeing those logos and restaurants will trigger feelings of speed and instant gratification. Those feelings tend to make you restless and impatient and it will be more difficult to appreciate and enjoy art, music, and the outdoors.

It is recommended not to make any financial decisions while eating at or having fast food restaurants in your sight. The instilled impatience may cause you to settle for less since you are likely to opt for the quickest way to achieve your goal.

Where your physical health is concerned, consuming the fatty foods more often then not tends to make you more anxious and can also lead to over-eating. Fat and sugar have a chemical-altering impact on your brain which apparently causes an addiction to these foods.

It is difficult avoiding all these restaurants since they are so readily available and it may be even harder to practice patience by foregoing them and preparing a heart-healthy meal at home. It will be more beneficial if you do so though.

Not many things in life come as easy and as quickly as we would like. Being patient and waiting for God's perfect timing may be one of the hardest things to do, but it is so worth it and more than beneficial; it is perfect!

Luke 21:19
By your patience possess your souls.
