Junk Food Withdrawal: Is it real?

A new study has found that Junk Food Withdrawal could be real.

The study published in the Journal Appetite, it was noted that people who cut back on eating highly processed snacks such as chips, fries and cookies experience physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.


These symptoms can include mood swings, cravings, headaches, anxiety and even bad sleep. Such symptoms are most intense between two and five days after reducing junk foods.

For the uninitiated, such withdrawals are similar to the ones that happen when one stops smoking cigarettes. So if you want to eat healthily and keep the processed food away, you better do it slowly.

But then again, the withdrawal symptoms depend on how much addicted you are to junk foods.
