For some people eating a healthy diet conjures up images of unsubstantial meals consisting of lettuce and seeds, not suitable for growing and hardworking men, whilst for others eating healthily means filling their body with a variety of colorful and natural foods that provide energy and goodness and protect against disease.
Today, obesity is a problem in a large number of countries particularly in the Western world. Obesity is caused, according to doctors and researchers, by an inactive lifestyle coupled with unhealthy eating patterns.
Overweight people are at a much higher risk of suffering some form of illness at some point in their life, usually a lot sooner than they expect. Health problems can range from backache, shortness of breath, type-II diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and more recently studies have linked a poor diet to certain forms of cancer.
Not only this but many overweight people, children in particular, may be teased and bullied, which could lead to depression and low self-esteem. To make themselves feel better, they will turn to food for comfort and thus be stuck in a vicious cycle.
Even though a lot of people who do not eat healthily are not fat, they would still experience other effects of eating a poor diet. This could include rotting teeth from eating too many sugary sweets and drinks, mood swings, headaches, tiredness and lethargy, constipation, poor concentration, dull hair, skin and nails, osteoporosis, insomnia, and heart disease due to high levels of cholesterol in the blood amongst others.
Heart disease today is the most common single cause of death in our society. Many of these deaths could be prevented solely by a change of diet and an increase in exercise.
Many unhealthy eaters complain that it is due to a lack of time that they do not eat more healthy meals, which may sound like a good excuse, but it is just an excuse. More often than not, the problem is that most people are uneducated about eating a healthy diet and what a healthy diet actually consists of. Most people do not realize what effect food has on our body and this problem should really be treated and discussed at home and in schools.

After you tap on several recipes, you have to sign into itunes. It charges you a dollar to see more. I learned if you just close it out and open again you can get around it.
Where the hell is the calorie count?!
If it's supposed to be healthy the major thing this app is missing is posting the calorie count!
