You'll feel good in these 10 minutes because junk food triggers the reward centers in our brains releasing dopamine. It works a little like the high from a drug. After 20 minutes, you'll be craving more. The sodium and high fructose corn syrup in the bun are highly addictive. One U.S. Big Mac contains 970 milligrams of sodium so after 30 minutes, you'll be a little dehydrated. Dehydration can mimic hunger so you'll have to fight the urge to eat again. If you are eating too much sodium, your kidneys may have a hard time eliminating it. Your heart pumps faster and this can lead to high blood pressure which, of course, can cause heart disease and stroke. If you are still feeling hungry after 40 minutes, it is because your blood sugar is all out of whack. The high fructose corn syrup in the bun is absorbed quickly, causing an insulin spike and more hunger. It can take you more than three days to digest a Big Mac. Normal food processing time? 24-72 hours. It takes, approximately, 51 days to digest trans fat. In the U.S., a Big Mac contains, 1.5g of trans fat. EEK! Trans fats have been linked to heart disease, obesity, cancer and diabetes. What do you think? Is this enough to make you give up on fast food completely? Source: Daily Mail
