They did not begin to do push-ups for a couple of weeks or months and then left. They had to do push-ups with his arms on a regular basis if they wanted to obtain the desired results.

Bad eating habits

Thus, one reason why many adults have difficulty to break their bad eating habits due to these habits have been part of their lifestyle for many years.

Why do we eat?

There are two main reasons why we eat. One of them is the supply of fuel or energy for our body. The other reason is for pleasure. Unfortunately some of the foods that give us pleasure are not healthy.

Most of the people makes its selection of food on the basis of what they see, smell, or taste. An example can be found in the following phrases: that cake that looks good! How well smell this cake! How well known this cake!

Note that the three previous statements relate food with pleasure. However, the food that is producing pleasure (in this case the cake) can be good for you or not from a nutritional point of view. That is why we have to be careful in the selection of our food and not only let us go by our senses of sight, taste or smell.

Healthy eating can be fun

Some people think that a healthy diet is boring and that it lacks of pleasant flavours. One reason why people think like this is because most of the advertisements promote foods high in calories, fat or sugar, and only a small percentage of food advertising is done for fruits, vegetables, seeds and beans. Therefore if there was more nutritional education, more and more people would find pleasant and tasty healthy eating.
