Ultra Processed Foods Lead to Overeating, Weight Gain

Health Monitor

Consumption of ultra-processed foods make people eat more and also lead to huge gains in weight, according to a new study done by researchers at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestic Kidney Diseases.

A study was conducted among 20 adults consisting of 10 males and 10 females for one month. They were either given ultra processed foods such as cream cheese, turkey bacon or unprocessed foods such as oatmeal with bananas, walnuts and skim milk. Those consuming ultra-processed foods gained 0.9 kg on an average while those on unprocessed diet lost that much weight. Ultra processed foods contain high fructose corn syrup, flavoring agents, emulsifiers and hydrogenated oils.


The study proves that consumption of ultra processed foods can lead to continuous weight gain and consequently serious health problems and even nutritional deficiencies. Processed foods also lead to more expenditure than raw foods.
