Being healthy involves careful consideration of what one is eating and engaging in activities that contribute to better healthy lives that do not include daily prescriptions or spending most of the time in a doctor’s office. There is an association involving the intensity of physical activities and how much energy the body uses from consumed meals. Poor health conditions arise due to the consumption of more or less than what the body requires in keeping an individual moving. The paper will analyze the various approaches the people can do to promote better health for the American population.
The American populations, and specifically the teenagers, possess notorious eating habits without considering the nutritional values of their choices. Peer influence, addiction, ignorance, and easy access to fast foods can lead to adverse health issues. The cycle of poor eating habits and unhealthy habits develops from childhood and continues in college where the individual finally progresses the cycle to the working environment. Ignoring the advantages of eating healthy meals equal the lack of interest in living free from most illnesses where the individual needs to develop into a more productive and independent person.
American health efficiency won’t be achieved through the increased consumption of fast foods. People should adopt better-eating habits and exercise approaches to ensure a healthy environment. Poor health habits are the leading causes of premature death among children and adults as indicated by WHO (2009). These habits increase the chance of health risks especially in cancer, heart diseases, and excessive weight gain. Fast-food consumption and lack of efficient physical activities inhibit the body’s performance by increasing or decreasing the necessary nutrients past levels the body cannot operate efficiently.
Understanding the effects of poor and efficient eating habits and how to manage your health is crucial to the existence of a healthy population in America. .
