Ultra-processed food intake in association with BMI change and risk of overweight and obesity: A prospective analysis of the French NutriNet-Santé cohort

Indulgence in ultra-processed foods may make an individual likely to pile up excess weight and become obese.

This study addressed the concerns linking ultra-processed food consumption to weight gain and obesity. Researchers compared dietary preferences with the body mass index (BMI) of 110,260 French men and women.

Researchers discovered that lovers of ultra-processed foods constitute a large proportion of the overweight and obese participants in this study. Based on the data from this study, it can safely be concluded that regular intake of ultra-processed foods may promote excess weight gain and obesity.
