 Fried Foods Are High In Calories

Like I earlier said, compared to other methods of cooking, frying your food adds alot of calories to it. When you fry your food, they loose their water content and absorb fat which increase their calories content

 Fried foods contain more calories than their non-fried counterparts. Eating a lot of them can significantly increase your calorie intake.

 Fried Foods Are Typically High In Trans Fats

Trans fats are formed when unsaturated fats undergo a process called hydrogenation. (Using high pressure and hydrogen gas).

Most manufacturers hydrogenated fat and increase their shelf life and stability. All these happens when your oil is heated to a very high temperature during cooking

 Fried foods are often cooked in processed vegetable or seed oils. When heated, these oils can form trans fats, which are associated with a number of health problems, including an increased risk of several diseases.

 Eating Fried Foods May Increase Your Risk Of Disease

 Generally speaking, eating more fried foods is associated with a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Eating fried foods may contribute to high blood pressure, low "good" HDL cholesterol and obesity, which are all risk factors for heart disease

 Fried foods contain more calories than their non-fried counterparts, so eating a lot of them can increase your calorie intake. Individuals who regularly consume fried foods may be at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and obesity. So the more fried food you take in your body, the higher the greater your risk.
