The results of studies conducted in  2012 ,  2011  and  2009  shows:

People eating fast food regularly are 51% more likely to develop depression.

Eating foods like:

  • sweetened desserts
  • processed meats
  • refined grains
  • fried foods

Affect your mental health and your mental congition.

Scientists have known this for more than a decade.

But – in 2023 most people have no idea processed foods ruins your brain as well as your body.

Eating processed foods leads to:

1. Stress

Eating processed foods regularly leads to weight gain and obesity.

Weight gain and obesity increase stress levels because of:

  • low self-esteem
  • weight-related health issues
  • concerns about body image

2. Anxiety

Eating unhealthy fats and additives leads to an increased risk of anxiety disorders.

Unhealthy diets lead to imbalances in brain chemistry and inflammation.

Imbalances in brain chemistry and inflammation contributes to anxiety.

3. Depression

A diet full of:

  • refined carbohydrates
  • unhealthy fats
  • sugar

Leads to inflammation and imbalances in neurotransmitter levels.

Inflammation and imbalances in neurotransmitter levels leads to depression.

4. Malnutrition

Processed foods are high in:

  • calories
  • added sugars
  • unhealthy fats

Processed foods are low in essential nutrients like:

  • minerals
  • vitamins
  • fiber

Your body and brain needs these essential nutrients to work well.

A diet full of processed foods makes you fat & malnourished.

Processed foods give you lots of calories to make you fat – not enough nutrients to fuel your body and brain.

This is why you can eat a tube of pringles and stay hungry.

Feeding your body calories and starving your body of nutrients keeps you hungry.

5. Poor sleep quality

Consuming a diet high in:

  • unhealthy fats
  • sugars

Leads to poor sleep quality by affecting blood sugar levels and promoting inflammation.

Unstable blood sugar levels leads to:

  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Waking up through the night
  • less REM sleep
  • Sleep apnea

Inflammation leads to:

  • Insomnia
  • Sleep apnea
  • Pain & discomfort

Bad diet = bad sleep.

Bad sleep = bad everything.

6. Mood swings and irritability

The high sugar content in processed foods causes:

  • rapid spikes and drops in blood sugar levels

This leads to:

  • difficulty concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • irritability

Bad diet = bad relationships.

7. Brain fog and reduced cognitive function

A diet high in processed foods leads to:

This is especially bad for children.

Eating a processed diet  leads to worse cognitive outcomes in children .

This may explain why kids are getting dumber and dumber.

Eating fast food makes you stupid.

The fact is:

Eating a diet high in processed foods makes you dumb, depressed and less productive.

But – this doesn’t mean you can never eat a Big Mac again.

Like everything in life – moderation is key.

Eating fast food all the time is terrible for you.

Never eating fast food is difficult and leads to binging.

The perfect diet is:

  • Eating healthy foods 80% of the time
  • Treating yourself to processed foods 20% of the time

Balance is better than perfection.

Myths like this are holding you back from feeling like the best version of yourself:

“Healthy foods are more expensive than fast food”

This is false.

Raw ingredients like vegetables, fruits and meats are cheaper than fast food meals.

Unhealthy diet:

A large big mac meal = £7.29

Eating a big mac meal for a month (30 days) = £218.70

Healthier diet:

5kg Chicken breasts = £28

5kg potatoes = £3

A month of chicken soup and roast chicken & potatoes = £31

Fast food is more expensive than healthy foods – when you cook your own food.

Your local prices may vary but the results will be similar.

If you do not cook your own food – you have a huge problem.

If you don’t know how to cook:

  • You get fat
  • You get poor

“I don’t have access to healthy foods”

If you live in a city – this is 100% false.

This argument may be stronger in parts of the US and other countries – but there are solutions.

If you can order KFC – you can order vegetables & meat.

There are online butchers.

There are online grocers.


You can grow your own vegetables at home, without a garden, using plant pots.

The fact is:

You can ALWAYS make healthier food choices.

  • Drink water instead of soda.
  • Eat oats or eggs instead of fruit loops.

You can eat a healthy diet if you want to.

You can have:

  • Better mental health
  • More mental clarity
  • More confidence
  • Better fitness

If you want it.

My diet used to be terrible.

I ate processed foods all the time because I didn’t know any better.

I’d eat fast food as a treat.

Then I eat processed foods like oven chips & nuggets when I wanted to be “healthy”.

The times where I was eating loads of processed foods were the times where I felt my worst.

Now that I’m working out and eating a healthy diet, I have:

  • More positive vibes
  • More confidence
  • More energy

But, that’s not all:

Eating healthy means I’m less hungry while eating less calories.

This makes getting lean easier.

Eating healthy 80% of the time means I appreciate it more when I eat processed foods as a treat.

Become happier, healthier and smarter using these 7 diet hacks:

1. Eat less crap

Cutting down is easier than quitting fast foods cold turkey.

Sugar’s proven to be addictive.

 Studies  show:

Excessive sugar intake creates similar behavioral and neurochemical changes as abusing drugs.

A  study  even found that:

In rats – the intense sweetness of sugar is more rewarding and attractive than cocaine.

Even when the rats have a history of cocaine use.

Sugar rewards brains more than COCAINE.

Food addiction is no joke.

The good news is:

Making small changes to your diet brings you to a healthier future.

Start drinking diet soda instead of soda.

Start eating fruits instead of candy.

Start eating fast food 3x a week instead of 5x a week.

Start eating less crap and more real foods.

Keep going until the majority of your diet is real, unprocessed foods.

2. Create a list of 6 simple, healthy meals you enjoy

A big problem that leads to eating crap is:

  • not knowing what to cook
  • not having healthy foods at home

An easy fix is this:

Find 6 easy to cook, simple and healthy meals.

  • 2 snacks
  • 2 dinners
  • 2 breakfasts

Rotate these meals every other day.

Now you’ve simplified the meals you eat and cook.

You always know what you’re gonna eat cos you’re picking one of 2 options.

And you’re shopping with these meals in mind at the start of the week.

Start with 6 meals – you can add more over time.

Keeping it simple is key.

3. Follow the 12 lean nutrition laws

Page 30 of my book “ Getting Lean ” breaks down the 12 lean nutrition laws that get you lean & sexy without suffering.

Here’s a few of the laws:

  • Eat real, unprocessed foods 80% of the time
  • A diet’s for life, not for summer
  • Don’t drink calories

Following these 3 laws will make you healthier than most people.

To discover the rest of the 12 lean nutrition laws, go here:

4. Eat a high protein diet

Eating more protein is always a good answer.

Protein is satiating – meaning it helps you stay fuller for longer.

Meaning – if you eat a high protein diet you’ll be less hungry.

Being hungry leads to making bad food decisions.

But that’s not all:

Protein builds muscle, grows healthy hair, nails and it’s great for your skin.

Aim to eat protein with every meal.

5. Stay sober

You’re more likely to eat crap when you’re drunk or high.

Staying sober leads to more discipline.

Staying sober leads to healthier habits.

6. Eat a cheat meal on the weekend

Being too restrictive with your diet leads to cravings and binging.

Looking forward to a delicious BBQ based pizza on Saturday keeps you motivated.

It’s easier to stick to eating chicken soup in the week when:

You know you’re eating your favourite takeaway on the weekend.

You don’t need to be perfect.

You need to be consistent.

7. Don’t keep processed foods at home

If it’s hard to get – you’re more likely to stay away from it.

If it’s easy to get – you’re gonna be eating it when the cravings hit.

Keep healthy foods in the house instead.

It should take a LOT of effort to eat processed crap – leading to you give up on it.

Following the advice above will make it easier for you to transform your bad diet.

Need help staying motivated with your diet…
