How to Stop Eating Junk Food

I've been eating too much junk food lately. I fortunately have good genetics so I don't need to worry about gaining body fat from it, but there are still negatives. Sugar decreases testosterone and has long-term health effects. My grandfather had diabetes, which I need to keep in the back of my mind for the long term.

Eating junk food every once in a while isn't a problem, but making a habit out of it is. As my diet has improved over the past couple of years, so has my physique, attitude, and sex drive. Cutting junk food to marginal levels is essential for a healthier nation, so I want to now share two extremely simple tips that won't be shared in the mainstream because there's no opportunity to make money off of them. There's no surgery or magic pill involved, just good choices and relatively easy discipline.

Follow these two steps to reduce your junk food intake, guaranteed.

1. Eat something else.

When you have a craving for junk food and that sugary rush, eat something else. Fresh fruit like an orange is usually the best bet to fill that sweet tooth, but I've often found that eating something else, anything else, will reduce the craving for junk food significantly, to the point that the craving is essentially satisfied and you won't need to eat it.

In my experience the effects of this are short term, but it will be enough to tide you over and subsequent cravings won't be as strong.

2. Don't have junk food in your house.

This is the easiest and most effective way to marginalize or eliminate junk food from your diet. As the old saying goes - out of sight, out of mind. If you don't have junk food in your house, you won't think about it, period. I know the grocery store's stockpiling of junk food can be tempting to snatch, as it has a certain way of calling out to you, but you must avoid these Sirens. They are destructive forces that want to wreck your masculine ship.

Instead, move over to the produce section and buy healthy snack alternatives like nuts and fresh fruit. Your diet will be much improved and thus will your station in life.

Big agribusiness makes their products deliberately addictive so you keep buying more of them and eat more than you need to, thus getting fat. Junk food epitomizes this in its highest degree. Don't let the factory food producers have more of your money than they are worth at the expense of your health.
