Health » WHY DO PEOPLE FIND IT HARD TO EAT HEALTHY DIET EVEN WHEN THEY CAN AFFORD IT ? by: Obajichi(f) .:. Tue, 07 Feb, 2023 - 12:42:03:pm GMT
The results of a research by United Nations shows that more than 3 billion people can't afford a healthy diet.
I don't believe this is caused by only poverty, insecurity , famine and global warming in the world now.
There are other things that could actually cause this inability to afford healthy diet .
For example, People tend to spend more on junk foods than well cooked foods. It's not healthy to eat junks all the time because you don't know the method of preparation and it is done in a haste to satisfy hunger for a short time.
Another reason is the use of too much spices. A meal prepared with the intention of satisfying your hunger and give you good health could turn out badly if spices are used unnecessarily.
In my opinion, some people are not necessarily troubled by the amount of money they have, but because they lack good information about eating healthy.
Being financially buoyant is not a problem, but knowing how to take care of yourself is also what matters.
What are other reason do you feel is responsible for not eating healthy even when one can afford it?
**I love being me.**

There's nothing wrong with these people aside from the fact that they are stingy. Identifying a stingy person is not difficult because everything about them being stingy is so obvious. Many people intentionally don't like eating good food because they are too stingy to bring out money from their pockets to buy something that will benefit their health.
The most annoying thing about these people is that they will eagerly collect nutritious food from someone else so far it's not their money they used to buy it; I think such a mentality is wrong and such an attitude is very bad. Why are you working? When you can't buy good food for yourself.
Many will even tell you they are saving their money. My brother and sisters, if you don't enjoy your money now that you're alive, someone else will spend it behind your back. Work, enjoy, and relax. Life is not hard!

@Oluwatomisin: I really wonder why. But I guess it's lack of information. They don't know the right food to eat.
Some times it is ignorance as in lack of awareness and others it is ignorance as in rejecting knowledge.
Some know the truth but want to follow the crowd in other to feel among. They don't know that they are hurting themselves.
For some, it is their mindset. They believe anything thing can go, very careless until when they end up in the hospital they'll start looking for who will come take care of them.
**It is well**

@Oluwatomisin: it is not necessarily stinginess. Eating most junks food and getting satisfied is much more expensive than eating a healthy food.

@RobertGrant: Some do know but still goes on to eat them. Foods like Shawarma has been emphasized to give cancer but person do buy and eat still on this enjoyment issues. What do we call those persons?

Well, some persons are ignorant of the health dangers that are inflicted by eating some sets of Junk foods. As the bible says, my people dies because of lack of knowledge but if some persons are aware of the dangerous health implications, they might stop or reduced their intake.
Secondly, enjoyment. Eating Junk such as barbeque, suya, shawarma to name a few can be view as enjoyment. I myself is guilty of this and the only reason, I do it is because I usually do it once in a while. Eating too much of it and eating it constantly is bad for the health.
I don't think majority of Nigerians eat junk food every time not because of its expenses but because we are used to eating our traditional food, garri and fufu, rice and beans. If we view those foods as unhealthy we do have a problem.
