In today’s society a lot of us might walk into the grocery store or gas station with the intention of getting a healthy snack or drink, instead of soda. Some people do not even walk in with the intention to do this.
One factor that could play into this is that healthier foods are more expensive then a lot of unhealthy foods which is a big part of problem. One idea to change this is maybe putting a heavier tax on junk/processed foods which could help. But what about people’s determination to eat healthier and stay fit. Because of the mentality that was created by our society it is now that everyone wants cheap and fast with the littlest amount of work possible. I believe a partial problem is peoples laziness honestly. They don’t have the determination or dedication to set up a meal plan or get up and exercise a couple times a week. This is a problem. And this again has to do with things the government or media is feeding us.
They want us to have everything cheep, easy, and with little to no effort yet they talk about problems our world has with obesity and almost creates unrealistic people sometimes for us to model. Such as the Kardashians or body builder instructors. A lot of these people have tons of money they can spend on personal trainers and expensive healthy foods. They also don’t have to worry about going to a job hours out of the day, leaving them plenty of time to work out or have someone make them healthy meals.
Do you agree? What are some ways you that could help with this problem? Is there anything that your family does that works well?
