Semuanya makanan favorit saya. Abal-abal banget yah jajanan saya hehehe. Tapi mulai sekarang, saya harus menjauhi makanan-makanan nan menggoda itu, karena katanya makanan tersebut termasuk junk food. Hiks...
Eh, tapi kalau ditilik-tilik lagi makanan apa aja sih yang termasuk junk food? Setelah saya cari definisinya, beginilah yang saya dapatkan:
Food that tastes good but is high in calories having little nutritional valuePizza kan ada gizinya, isinya daging, tomat, jamur, paprika, keju. Gimana nih, engga termasuk kriteria junk food dong *ngarep hihihi*
Tapi saat saya baca ini:
Junk food is an informal term applied to some foods which are perceived to have little or no nutritional value, or to products with nutritional value but which also have ingredients considered unhealthy when regularly eaten, or to those considered unhealthy to consume at all. The term was coined by Michael Jacobson, director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, in 1972.Hiks hiks hiks..
Junk foods are typically ready to eat convenience foods containing high levels of saturated fats, salt, or sugar; and little or no fruit, vegetables, or dietary fibre.
Junk food includes foods such as hamburgers, hot dogs, chocolate, ice cream, cake, french fries and pizza.
Eh tapi masih ada harapan:
Junk food is a slang word for foods with limited nutritional value. Every person has their own list of foods that they call junk foods. I would include foods that are high in salt, sugar, fat or calories and low nutrient content.Hmm, masih ada harapan bisa makan pizza dkk. Tapi meskipun untuk beberapa jenis makanan dibuat dari bahan-bahan bergizi tinggi, proses pengolahannya serta penyajiannya membuat makanan-makanan ini kehilangan nilai gizi, begitu kata nilna. Yah demi sang calon buah hati, saya
Salted snack foods, candy, gum, most sweet desserts, fried fast food and carbonated beverages are some of the major junk foods. Generally, they offer little in terms of protein, vitamins or minerals and lots of calories from sugar or fat. The term "empty calories" reflects the lack of nutrients.
Rather than taking a radical approach and banning all but the simplest foods, judge each food based on the list of ingredients and Nutrition Facts label found on packages. When reading the list of ingredients, look for sugar, fat or salt as one of the first three ingredients. If any of these are listed that high in the ingredients, you can probably consider that food to be too high in sugar, fat or salt.
A look at the nutritional information on the label will list the number of calories per serving, grams of fat, sodium, cholesterol, fiber and sugar content. This nutritional information will make you more knowledgeable in selecting foods to reduce your nutritional health risk.
