Look at smoking, People went from one bad habit to another, over eating. The
eye, hand, mouth never changed. but the people wasn't fat when they was
smoking. Self image has changed.
I've recently changed my diet over to a diet filled with fruits and
vegetables and have found the truth about costs to be interesting. If you are
trying to hold on to eating all of your old favorite foods, foods that are not
good for you, then eating healthy foods on top of that is expensive. But if you
make the change to a healthy diet filled with fruits and vegetables and minus
all of the bad stuff it really is not more expensive. I have found that by
eating the right foods I am eating less food and still feeling full and
satisfied. My food bill has not increased much if at all. Te benefits from the
cost savings side of healthy eating have off set the supposedly more expensive
food also.Healthy eating can be done on the same budget and the poor
can afford it if we can have a change in our thinking. Like most problems the
real challenge exists between our own ears.
