    Do You Know Why You Shouldn’t Eat Chicken Every Day? We Have All The Answers

    Chicken

    Chicken is widely considered to be one of the most versatile types of meat. It’s absolutely true that we often tend to use it in many a meal. Plenty of people will serve chicken on a regular basis. Not only is it a good fit for many dishes, but it’s also relatively easy to prepare, and a lot of people like it.

    Another reason why a lot of people choose chicken is that it’s a lean type of meat. It contains a lot of protein, while its fat contents are low compared to red meats. That sounds like plenty of good reasons to eat a lot of chicken, right? Well, no. It could lead to a few of the following problems.

    But if you are eating chicken more times than you would like to admit, you may be wondering what is happening to your body.

    Too much chicken

    We know a varied diet is key to a healthy lifestyle. This is also true for eating chicken: too much of the same thing isn’t beneficial, as it can lead to health problems. Excess consumption of chicken is bad for your weight, for your heart, and you run an increased risk of coming down with food poisoning.

    Trouble maintaining weight

    Consuming too much animal-based protein, like chicken, can make it hard to maintain a healthy weight. According to The Huffington Post, people who can go without meat, like vegetarians, pescatarians, vegans or flexitarians usually have a lower BMI than people who do eat meat on a daily basis.

    Too much protein

    Ideally, around 10 to 35 percent of your daily caloric intake should consist of protein. Eating too much protein causes your body to store this as fat. This means your weight gain increases and leads to elevated blood lipid levels. Chowing down on a big piece of chicken every day will contribute to a massive portion of your protein intake, so be sure to keep a close eye.

    Larger risk of heart disease

    Eating too much chicken can lead to higher cholesterol levels. It won’t come as a surprise that this is related to cardiovascular disease. This way, eating chicken and other products rich in protein indirectly increased the risk of cardiovascular issues – health problems that could cause death.
