I was surprised to discover how many calories were in certain items, especially when it came to drinks. In many cases I was shocked about how many calories some of the food items on the menu contained. Knowing the nutritional value of the food items, encouraged me to rethink what I was eating and further more allowed me to make better choices. I also like when food establishments have specific items that are healthier or lighter as once again I end up making a better choice. I was really disappointed when the numerous food places in my neighbourhood did not include any of this information, as I think it would be extremely beneficial to their customers.
Some people who live in China prefer a fork or spoon for some cuisine but most like to use chopsticks for everything. In China it is considered rude to eat all of the food on your plate.

What we eat says a lot about who we are. It is a clear case of nurture over nature; what a person chooses to eat depends very much on where they are born and raised. A westerner might flinch at the sight of boiled bat or a half matured duck egg, and raw oysters, whereas blue cheese may equally sicken a Japanese native. Often enough, what really repels people from these extreme eats is not the taste of food, but the thought of eating it. Having been to several foreign countries, specifically Vietnam and China it is evident that what one culture finds delicious, another finds disgusting and the biggest divide of all, is the one between west and east.
Therefore, eating at home is a way to protect your family and even yourself from this threaten. Also, Ministry of Food Safety is out of control in its management. It is very easy to find there are so many food stores or restaurants in Vietnam. Surprisingly, they even do not have the operating business certificates which were granted by the authority. When they think the authority do not have their information to supervise, they will buy cheap ingredients from many local markets in order to reduce capitals and increase more benefits.
Which if I remember correctly was part of the kcals negative and has a bunch of junk. In which that has motivated me to stop drinking them as much as possible.

I believe the people are to blame for their own obesity. A single person can single out themselves to buy the food from a restaurant knowing the proper nutrition will not be in the food. It all comes down to common knowledge and self control.
People who think about food and eating a lot can have an eating problem.People who compare your body to other people's and think about their shape or size a lot check, test and weigh your body a lot and base your self-worth on how much you weigh or whether you pass your checks and tests is also a sign of having an eating problem. As you can see I deal with a few of those. The food problems don't outright affect my life. Mentally I dont have the greatest self esteem but the food problems don't inhibit me from functioning like a regular person. Yes I get stared at and yes I get made fun of but its not killing me.
It is essential that there is a clear understanding of how collectivism and individualism represent different views on culture and community, but that they are also held within the same continuum (Leake & Black, 2005). Every culture contains elements of both, but the focus of each culture is where the difference lies. And these differences are constantly shifting and changing, which means that they should not simply be judged in a snapshot but should be understood as they constantly change and adjust (Triandis, 1993). 2. Collectivism a.
This essay is tasked with assessing racial inequalities in society and, the way in which they can be rectified, or at the very least, lessened. Through the examination of racial stressors, lower education rates and an investigation of equal rights history we can attempt to determine the root causes of these issues and begin a process of integrating a profound sense of equality into society. Through a more upfront and direct dialogue with survivors of racial biases and those that continue to adhere to ignorant ideas which have become the basis for our everyday lives. In addressing everyday racism through to exceedingly more malicious ideas which minority groups begin to feel oppressed by, we can hope to achieve a greater respect for the everyday
