The Question Club
I eat one bag of potato chips a day. This concerns me.|
I have no significant known health problems. Get a little winded running, but that's about it. I walk a ton, run a little, sometimes lift at the gym. I am thin, with a little bit of fat here and there. A little bit of belly, but I'm thin enough to be called thin. Besides the Doritos, I eat pretty well, although I don't have the money to eat better. (I'm a college student, so I probably have more instant foods than an older person would, but by no means do I generally eat "unhealthy.")
My question is this: what effects is this bad habit going to have on my health someday? Assuming I eat relatively well otherwise, keep walking as much as I do and generally stay in good shape, will the Doritos do significant damage? What are the health risks of eating Doritos?
I've been wondering about this for awhile. How soon should I give it up -- what would be helpful? And yes, I know this is ripe for a little bit of humor, but I'm looking for advice. I don't drink very much at all, and I don't smoke, so this is my big unhealthy thing. I've been eating Doritos for quite awhile now, and I have wondered for awhile is there a threat to me from these bags and their tasty delights?
Typically, I eat a bag of Doritos Collisions a day, 99 cent bag. If that helps.
