I have always been pretty healthy in my eyes. I eat a balanced diet and get plenty of exercise through skateboarding and random phases where I try to do yoga and running. I do occasionally induldge in the odd burger and chips though and I love love love salted popcorn.
The other day I watched a documentary about food called FOOD INC (2008). It was about GMO foods and where a lot of meat comes from. It literally left me terrified to eat and got me reading all the labels of everything. It really made me think twice about what I am putting in my body and you should too.
I have always been a stubborn person and never listened to my friends who told me diet sodas and fast food were really bad for me as I thought ‘how bad can it really be?’
If this is something you are interested in then cool, if you are not interested in it, I garuntee after you watch that movie you will be.
No one wants to end up all gross from eating loads of bad food!
