Hint: Junk food lack in nutrients and essential amino acids and adversely affect our body.

Complete Answer:
- Fruits are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, potassium, and fibres. They also contain phytochemicals with antioxidant properties that help increase physiological well being in adults and kids and also reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases, cancer etc. Although consuming too much fruit can lead to an increased level of fructose which can be bad for people with diabetes. An upset stomach, heartburn, diarrhoea, reflux and bloating are other potential side effects of excessive fruit intake.

- An unbalanced diet that involves junk and fast foods like energy drinks, high fat and oil content food items like bacon, ham, sausages, synthetic syrups, high glycemic index carbohydrates, burger, sugary cocktails, alcohol, deep fried food, pizza and soft drink, highly lacks the nutrients, minerals and essential amino acids required by our body for metabolic and physiological processes.

- This kind of diet makes the body lethargic, fatigued and unhealthy. Such food habits result in gluttony. Deposition of extra fat occurs that leads to obesity.

Hence option (D.) Is the correct answer here.

Note: Consumption of unhealthy food can also result in an increase in the biological age before the potential chronological age of a person.
