When it comes to food which criteria do you use when it comes to shopping? Convenience? Price? Quality?
Most people will eat food based on the taste and the price. The emotional feeling that one gets out of eating is likely put above everything else, rather than how much value or energy a food will add to the person’s health in the short and long term.
Many people live a fast-paced life short on time where their job takes priority over their health. Adding to this long hours spent sat at the desk plus many hours between eating, therefore don’t live in the moment and experience what they fuel themselves with. The crucial point here is we should look at our relationship with food and base our choices around the benefits it gives us.
If we want healthy and disease free lives a starting point is to look at valuing the health benefits and consequences of our choices. The only way we can perform to our best in absolutely everything we do is to make better choices in how we fuel and move our bodies, at least most of the time. The clear majority of people who train in the gym will try and outrun their poor diet to at least some degree, hence the reason many people lose interest in the gym, due to little or no results. Another way to look at this is to think about how many times we eat a week in comparison to how many times we partake in physical activity.
