Sometimes I get tired of the whole "eat healthy" thing. I get frustrated and wonder "whats so important about being healthy?" even though I know the answer, and my mom has told me why three hundred times. Some times I feel like I just want a soda or chips, candy, ice cream, something that I want! Sometimes I just want to eat what I want to eat! But I know my parents are only trying to protect me and raise me in the right way.
But also there are other reasons to stay healthy. This book I read talked about girls who think they're fat, and will just stop eating completely!
It's called Anorexia.These girls, no matter how much they starve themselves, always see a a fat girl in the mirror.
There is another eating disorder found in teens, called Bulimia, where a girl will eat, and eat, and eat, and then make herself throw it up. (gross)
So my thought is if you have a healthy body to begin with maybe those would have a less chance of happening.
Now that's just the way I see it. But sometimes it is hard to eat the healthy way, because I just want to eat what my friends are eating.Or look like I'm grown up and drink a soda when my mom and dad aren't there. And trust me I struggle with these things too. It's hard to get yourself in the habit of eating healthy. But give it a shot and you will thank yourself later.
