While we know we are one of the ‘fattest’ nations in the world, we seem to be ignoring the warnings and spending huge amounts of money on fat and calorie-saturated fast foods. Did you know that Australians are expected to spend more than $37 billion on takeaway food this year, making us the 11th biggest-spending fast food nation on earth? The figure – the equivalent of 343 Whopper burgers for every man, woman and child in the country – is an increase of $4 billion in just three years. And as if this news isn’t bad enough, enter a new player in the fast food world: introducing the Pizza Vending Machine!
Yes, you read it right – a pizza vending machine. Apparently a shopping centre in Sydney is the home of this ‘marvellous’ invention. You can have a steaming hot pizza in only 3-minutes and it is delivered to you in a box via a slot in a vending machine (read more about it here: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/food/pizza-gio-vending-machine-makes-pizza-in-3-minutes-in-westfield-chatswood/story-fn93ypt9-1227021393182 ).
Honestly, enough is enough! If pizza vending machines start popping up in food courts all over Australia, there we have yet another unhealthy food choice available to tempt hungry shoppers. Pizza is high in saturated fat, high-GI carbohydrates and calories and, if spat out of a machine like this one, lacking in a lot of important vitamins and minerals. If you see one of these, don’t go there! Stick with Sumo Salad or even fresh sushi: at least you are eating food containing real ingredients and you can have the satisfaction that it has been prepared by human hands (as opposed to the inner workings of some machine!).
At The Natural Way, we do not place a total embargo on takeaway food while you are on the program – rather, we educate you on the right takeaway choices to make while you are losing weight, so you can still lose kilograms while enjoying not cooking for yourself. We work with you to ensure our weight loss program fits in with your life – so if you enjoy eating out, we can certainly accommodate that in your program. The Natural Way is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle: losing weight has never been so easy.
If you would like to find out more about our weight loss program (and with Spring less than a month away, now is a good time!), call us today on 1300 SLIMMER (1300 754663) and book your FREE appointment.
