- Interferes with the hormones that regulate hunger and satiety.
- Harms metabolism, leading to increase in insulin and fat storage.
- It is addictive (by the release of dopamine when we consume it).

Needless to say, all that deteriorates the quality of your work and overall performance, which makes you feel even more stressed, trying to push yourself harder and further to the brink of exhaustion. The good news is, however, that there is a way to break that vicious cycle:
