Healthy Eating Habits: Habits that Last a Lifetime
By Sara Pelletier
As a young adult, I believe it is most important to have healthy eating habits while you’re young. To me, this means that if you have healthy eating habits as a young adult, you will be more adjusted to them as an adult. If you set goals, and try now, your future will look better.
To motivate others to adopt healthy eating habits, I would encourage group activities where everyone is on the same level. Some people are self-conscious about their bodies. If they see other people just like them trying for healthier eating habits, and working out, they are more likely to feel more accepted. Healthy eating habits are something people can come together and relate to.
In a world dominated by soda and sugar, many health problems can occur, such as heart disease. Coronary artery disease can result in heart attacks. It also has different symptoms, so you may want to check with your doctor if you do not have healthy eating habits.
I would also encourage people to create healthier eating habits by showing the negative things that can happen to your body if you don’t. The truth can be scary. Many people can end up with diabetes. Symptoms of diabetes are loss of weight, dehydration, fatigue, and blurred vision. Diabetes symptoms occur when glucose levels in the body become abnormally elevated. I would persuade people to adopt healthy eating habits by simply showing them what can happen if they don’t.
Motivating myself, as well as my peers, through researching the risks of un-healthy habits, can change people’s views on eating habits. Healthy eating habits can change the way you live.
