Does the headline describe the lifestyle you grew up with? Then welcome to bulge generation that is contributing to record numbers being treated in hospitals for obesity. 18-30 year old’s don’t know how to live healthy anymore.
Unhealthy eating and foods continue to contribute to the obesity epidemic the same way that smoking contributes to increase incidences of lung cancer. While food corporations make money off sugar water and snacks, they help to create a vicious cycle of obese consumers who cannot control themselves from opening a pack of potato chips or downing a couple of cheap carbonated sugar drinks.
Health experts want to curb the cost of obesity and diabetes by proposing a tax over junk food, and apply that extra money to subsidize and promote healthier foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables.
Fruit juice may be advertised as healthy, but the number of calories are as much as beer. Next time you crave fruit juice, go for the whole fruit that is unprocessed with all the minerals and vitamins still intact. (You know fruit juice is not what it appears when manufacturers have to inject extra vitamins into the juices to make it more appealing.)
Replace fruit juice with water and whole fruits, then you are well on your way of losing weight.
Just put down the juice if you ever want to succeed at losing weight or attain success at dieting. Watch this YouTube video to better understand why bottled fruit juice is not a health food.
