Why Indians Love Junk Food?

After a very long time, today is Talk Day 😀 I do check IWB emails when I get a breather in office or get bored 😛 . An email landed in my mail box today from a 22-year-old. She said that she just loved to eat junk food and hated to exercise. She mentioned she had PCOS and wanted to shed weight! I laughed after reading her email but was not surprised. Who would not want to eat all yummy food and still shed weight? Who would not want to not move bum and still shed weight? Wel,l there are people who differ, but they are rare! Most of the Indians have become couch potatoes. Obesity in India is ever on the increase, thanks to delicious junk food. I am sitting here and pondering -:

Precisely, yes! We eat what we yearn for, what our tongue wants to taste and don’t care a damn what it does to our body.

Seriously!! Not even 15 minutes! I am not the right person to comment on this reason errr excuse. I travel for approximately 2.5-3 hours a day, spend 10hours in office. I work on IWB after I reach home, I do walk for 20-30 minutes, take stairs in office. My cook is absconding since a month and I have eaten outside twice in a month out of which one meal was totally low carb. So I am still pondering why Indians Love Junk Food and have not reached any conclusion.
