For many years society was raised and taught on the notion that mouth watering food that appeals to the taste and senses were considered healthy. Even though taste was use as a gauge to determine what was healthy and what was not, many were ignorant of the fact that these foods had adverse effects on the body.

Choice of foods

The choice of foods is one of the biggest challenges to healthy eating habits. You would find that foods like meat, dairy products, and fry food have an appealing taste due to added MSG and other modified stimulants.

These types of foods have an adverse effect on the mind and cause one to look upon wholesome food like nuts, grain, vegetables, and fruits as not fulfilling.

With this push button type lifestyle people are becoming so lazy they don’t find the time to prepare wholesome food.
