Overview

Do you ever find yourself excusing your unhealthy eating habits? Perhaps you find it hard to give up that slice of chocolate cake because it feels like something you've always done. Telling ourselves our eating habits are hardwired into our genetic code is an excuse. It allows us to avoid taking responsibility for how we look and how healthy we are.

But at the very latest when we have kids, it might be time to try and improve our eating habits to set a good example for our children. Awareness is always the first step. By educating yourself about the history of eating habits and what research says really makes us eat the way we do, you'll be on your way to improving your diet and changing your way of life for the better.

"The way you teach a child to eat well is through example and patient exposure to good food. And that fails, you lie."
