At the end of the 4 weeks, the fast food eaters had put on an average of 6.5 kilograms (14.3 pounds). After just 1 week on the fast food diet, blood tests showed sharp increases in a liver enzyme called SGPT.  SGPT levels were more than quadrupled over the 4-week study period.  Increased SGPT levels are used to diagnose liver disease before symptoms develop. In 11 fast food dieters, SGPT rose to levels suggestive of liver damage. The SGPT increases were linked to weight gain and higher sugar and

Carbohydrate intake.


Sutra: Eating 2 fast food meals a day, walking < 5000 steps a day can cause liver damage or gain weight as per a Swedish study.
