  • Do you think our youth gets enough nutrition in schools?

    Best answer: No of course not. I was shocked when I was younger and in school, that we had access to ice cream bars, cookies, donuts for breakfast, soda vending machines, snack vending machines, and if you put temptation out in front of kids, most kids will choose the unhealthy things -- that's why they shouldn't be... show more

    I was shocked when I was younger and in school, that we had access to ice cream bars, cookies, donuts for breakfast, soda vending machines, snack vending machines, and if you put temptation out in front of kids, most kids will choose the unhealthy things -- that's why they shouldn't be there in the first place. We have a culture that offers us garbage, but then it turns on us for consuming the garbage that it creates.

  • Boyfriend won't eat fruit or vegetables?

    My boyfriend is 20 and will not eat any fruit or veg, including things like most beans/pulses, avocados, sweet potatoes, and sweetcorn.

    My boyfriend is 20 and will not eat any fruit or veg, including things like most beans/pulses, avocados, sweet potatoes, and sweetcorn. I include these specifically because people have previously recommended these as "tasty" veg that may change his mind. Cooked, raw, roasted with a ton of BBQ seasoning, fried - he will not eat any. He is sometimes okay with things like onion but most often will pick them out too. His mum swears he used to eat them when he was a kid, and started refusing them in his early teens. I think it now is just a point of principle and he refuses to listen to any logic or reason. He has admitted that it´s due in part to stubbornness on his part because people always make a point of it. I understand some people just do not like certain things, that's fine. But it´s literally everything fruit or veg-related, even things that are fruit-flavoured. All he eats is meat, carbs, and generally really unhealthy processed/fast food whenever he can. I really am getting irritated with this. It´s awkward when we go out or if people cook for us, and he picks out every microscopic bit of vegetable. I also worry about his health, because certain medical conditions run in his family and overall he should really look after his health better. I have bought some vitamin C supplements which he takes every day, but I really don't think it´s enough. He is great in every other way and this is the only real "immature" habit he has. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Is fitness a way of life for you, or do you just go through the motions?

    Best answer: I wouldn't say it's a way of life :)

    I used to exercise every day, haven't done so in years... getting back on track though. Two times a week now, if I start recovering faster, I will increase the amount of times a week :)

  • Am I short if I am almost 19 y/o and 5'8" ? Am I doomed for ever ?

    Best answer: No, and you won't be knocking your head on trees and beams so often either, nor grazing yourself so badly when you fall; oh, and you'll be much less prone to leg ulcers after your mid-60's. You'll probably get quite competitive too, not wanting the giraffes to get away with it. All of these things... show more

  • A teacher told my mom I was too skinny?

    Best answer: I can see why your teacher did so because on average that's underweight for your height, but these things are also individual. Some people will always have a slight build. It's just the way they're made. Others will be very slight and perfectly healthy at a certain age. Unsurprisingly build run in... show more
    Best answer: I can see why your teacher did so because on average that's underweight for your height, but these things are also individual. Some people will always have a slight build. It's just the way they're made. Others will be very slight and perfectly healthy at a certain age. Unsurprisingly build run in families. I grew up alongside girls who were like toothpicks until their mid to late 20s when they filled out. Their sisters were the same and when you looked at family pictures their moms and aunts were the same too. If you look like your female relatives at the same age as you are now I'd just let it go. If you're the odd one out and you eat like everyone around you perhaps it's time to see a nutritionist?

  • Do you have to go to the gym, or can you just exercise outside?

I’m trying to wean off so I don’t get any crazy withdrawal symptoms. If I can I want to do this until my body is used to like 1/4 a cup or maybe even less than just quit drinking it completely.

  • Are you fat? If so, do you plan on staying that way forever?

    Best answer: I'm overweight. Given that I generally exercise 2 hours per day and have healthy eating habits, I figure I'll probably be overweight for the rest of my life. My doctor says I'm perfectly healthy and that's what matters.
