You Are What You Eat The way I see, it our bodies are like machines and like most machines if you take care of them they will take care of you. Our bodies are no different you get out what you put in. Nobody expects a machine to run without fuel and that requires a specific kind of fuel, one that the machine was created to run on. Unlike those machines, our bodies require certain types of food as fuel and it seems that more often than not we fill our bodies with the wrong foods. It is crazy to think that we expect our bodies to function properly when we do not treat them properly.
America has a typical hierarchy of factors who rule the over the obese population. Junk food, lack of mobility, and undereducated knowledge of a healthy lifestyle, often contradict the fate of an obese person. With a little help and determination America can solve the problem of obesity and prevent future health problems by: eating healthier, encouraging physical activity, and setting limits on the consumption fast food, to provide better nutrition for the people of America. One way the population of America can overcome the issue of obesity is by simply eating healthier. Further explained, people can start making healthier decisions on what they decide to eat.
Moreover, this obscures several health policy debates. I believe that a small amount of obese individuals are hereditarily preset to become obese and most likely will come to be overweight regardless even if they followed a strict diet plan. Some are hereditarily susceptible to obesity in that they must be vigilant about their nutrition, which may evade obesity. Furthermore, many have no inherited traits contributing to obesity, but through careless eating habits become obese. Radley Balko, a senior editor at Reason, states, “We’re becoming less responsible for our own health, and more responsible for everyone else’s” (396).
The government plays an important part in our safety, but many people think they take it too far. Recently, people have thought more and more about how much involvement the government should have when it comes to food regulations. Some people think the government's involvement in regulating food would greatly help obesity rates, and others think the country's obesity rates would show little to no improvement. Although no one cause of obesity exists, and no government regulations will likely alter someone’s lifestyle choices, the government should implement some regulations by implementing programs to educate and encourage citizens to lead a healthier life and by requiring companies to list a full disclosure of ingredients on their products. Because obesity has many causes, people do not think the government implementing regulations on food will influence healthy decisions.
The biological process that gradually changes species in ways that makes them better at survival. Humans undergo evolution just like any other living thing. And it is one of the traits we have evolved to have that might be just as obesity inducing as fast food is claimed to be. Emma Duncan states that, “It (Evolution) has designed mankind to cope with deprivation, not plenty.” Not that long ago in humanities past, agriculture was often balanced on a tightrope. One year it would be a good harvest, the next it would suffer... ... middle of paper ... ...industry that promoting healthy foods would either backfire or have no effect.
This essay will analyze America’s decision to choose a lousy diet or a great diet. Buying fast food rather than cooking a home cooked meal can be convenient and inexpensive for a plenty of families in America. However, when it comes to eating a meal nearly all people weigh the options of eating fast food, cooking, or buying processed food. In the long run, there could be a ton of consequences for choosing one option over the other. People health can become an issue since fast food contains an abundant amount of unhealthy ingredients.
This misunderstanding has given the United States of America a very poor reputation geared towards a “Fast food obsessed nation”. Healthy eating is linked directly to a plethora of benefits that keep the human body physically and mentally healthy. The truthful facts of healthy eating need to be exposed to the nation of The United States and the other 195 countries on Earth, today. Healthy eating is often looked upon dietary regimen for losing weight. However, the true definition of a diet is the food the body human body consumes over a period of time.
Fast food may be boosting our economy but it definitely not enhancing people 's health. Not only can fast food affect a person’s physical health, it can also be a damaging factor to a person’s mental health as well. Fast food is known to be high in fat, sugar, sodium and low in fiber and calcium. Fast food can have major petrifying effects on your body ranging from obesity, heart disease, high levels of stress and increase in blood sugars. What many people don’t comprehend is along with that order of large fries you will also be getting a hidden order of sodium and fatty acids, which are not beneficial to the body.
You can lose excess pounds and maintain a healthy weight by simply eating the good stuff and exercising; without getting excessive and counting each and every carbohydrate, gram, and calorie. I will confess I was biased and had dismissed Atkins as a total hoax. Now, having researched the Atkins diet, I see that many people have benefited from the diet. I see that there are a lot of benefits about Atkins' approach. Yet, I'm still convinced there are better ways to lose weight without facing Atkins downsides.
In the world today we have sedentary lifestyles, we now have more advanced technology and spend more time commuting. We live unhealthy lifestyles and don’t realize it, we eat what we like and ignore the fatty preservatives within the fast food we are consuming. McDonalds has been made very popular with its dollar menu, yet it’s the unhealthiest fast food restaurant you can eat at.
