Is Your Instagram Feed Making You Hungry for Junk Food?

In a world where scrolling through your “feed” is as routine as brushing your teeth, it’s crucial to understand how what you see in the digital world influences your health and diet choices.

An interesting new study has shed some light on the impact of social media habits, specifically Instagram, on diet behaviors, mood, and even cravings — and unsurprisingly, scrolling isn’t doing your health any favors.

This study analyzed young adults, aged 18–24, to see how exposure to different types of Instagram content could sway their feelings toward food, mood, and body image. Participants were split into two groups; one browsed a feed filled with junk food images, while the other had a more neutral, control account. After a 15-minute browsing session, they reported on their mood, cravings, and how they felt about their bodies.

The findings? Well, they’re quite telling.

Those who were exposed to the junk-food-laden Instagram feed reported increased hunger, stress, sadness, and exhaustion. They also had a heightened craving for salty, savory, and fatty foods.

After looking at junk food images, participants were more likely to choose junk food over healthier options from a virtual food tray.

What does this mean for you? It’s clear that the images you’re bombarded with on social media can influence your mood and food choices, pushing you toward less healthy options and potentially affecting your confidence and emotional well-being.

By becoming more aware of how social media content affects you, you can make more conscious choices about who you follow and what type of content you engage with.

So the next time you’re scrolling through your Instagram feed, remember that those images might just be influencing your next meal choice or how you feel throughout the day. Consider replacing accounts that promote unhealthy eating habits with those that share nutritious recipes and positive wellness tips (I’d love to help lead the charge and also introduce you to some fantastic people and businesses to follow).

Articles Recently Released About Me:

Biohacking is a term that’s thrown around a lot these days, but what does it really mean? In my recent conversation on the podcast Brave New World with Lord Evgeniy Lebedev, we delve into this topic, exploring how simple lifestyle changes in exercise, diet, and exposure to light can contribute to overall wellness. As we spend a day together, I share insights on biohacking and how you might already be practicing it without even realizing it.

Catch that podcast here or check out this related article, published by The Standard. The article includes a video interview featuring my time with Lord Lebedev and an interview with journalist Will Hosie where I dive deeper into why biohacking and being a human performance enthusiast reflects my desire to fulfill God’s purpose for me.

Product Of The Week

::: Maintain Balance Amidst Stress With a 15-Day Free Trial of Quantum Upgrade ::: 

Imagine for a moment that there’s a way to elevate every cell in your body, shield yourself from the invisible stressors of modern life, and unlock a level of vitality you’ve perhaps never experienced.

This isn’t just wishful thinking — it’s a tangible reality with Quantum Upgrade.

Quantum Upgrade stands at the forefront of biohacking technology, which can help you with cell protection, enhance night rest, boost resilience and ATP (energy) production, reduce stress, and optimize blood vitality in ways you can actually see under a darkfield microscope.

And if you’re concerned about EMF radiation — a topic I speak about frequently given our tech-saturated world — Quantum Upgrade offers a solution to neutralize these pervasive waves.

Don’t just take my word for it. The efficacy of Quantum Upgrade is backed by the gold standard of scientific research: randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind studies. For instance, recent findings have illuminated how Quantum Upgrade can turbocharge your ATP production by an impressive 25–29%. ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is essentially the energy currency of your cells. Boosting its production means elevating your energy levels, enhancing your endurance, and improving your overall vitality.

Moreover, in a study conducted by BrainTap — a name synonymous with cutting-edge cognitive enhancement — it was revealed that pairing BrainTap with Quantum Upgrade significantly improved all markers of health in participants, including heart rate variability (HRV) and parasympathetic activity. These markers are crucial indicators of your body’s ability to relax, recover, and maintain balance amidst the demands of daily life.

So, if you’re on a quest to optimize your health, fortify your body against various stressors, and tap into a deeper well of energy, Quantum Upgrade might just be the breakthrough you’ve been searching for.

Ready to take a leap toward achieving peak performance and wellness? Use code BEN15 here to snag a 15-day free trial of Quantum Upgrade.
