We need food to survive it is nourishment for our bodies but we use food for more than nourishment. We eat food for pleasure a lot of people eat food when they are in pain, some people refuse to eat food because they don’t want to become obese. A large percentage of Americans are overweight. We must educate ourselves and our children if not, future generations will die from obesity related diseases on top of everything else they have to face in life such as AIDS, crack, murder, and prison which are huge killers of our community.
The media shows us images of perfect bodies, but these are people who have money and can afford food that is good for them and can hire a personal trainer to whip them into shape. But what about the low-income mother that works and goes to school and cannot afford to feed her children all of the nutritional food that they need. She only has time to fix them cereal, Ramen noodles and TV dinners? Make no mistake about it, just because you are thin doesn’t mean you are healthy.
Just because you are overweight doesn’t mean that you are unhealthy, but you will eventually head down the road of being very unhealthy if you don’t take care of yourself, no matter how much you weigh. Most of us struggle with time and don’t believe we have the time to treat ourselves right, but it can be done.
