Some may think, eating healthy means:
Eating an apple a day.
Desserts are only for the weekends.
No ice cream or cakes or pastries on a daily basis.
Boring salad all week long.
Weird combinations of smoothie and juices.
VEGETABLE. (I swear, many males moaned in dismay)
Less fried foods.
In my humble opinion, eating healthy is to mainly:
Avoid fried foods
Crazily battered, high in saturated fat, trans fat, reused cooking oil.
Eliminate: Fish and Chips, fried chicken, deep fried seafood, fried finger foods…
Prevent from: Spiked blood sugar, acne formation, sore throat, poor digestive system.

Cut down sugar
Especially refined white sugar, cane sugar.
Eliminate: Store bought juices, ice cream shakes, bread puddings, syrups, cupcakes…
Prevent from: Pre-mature aging, early formation of wrinkles, excessive sebum production, dull complexion.

Using the right oil
Switch to olive oil or coconut oil which all contain high level of mono and polyunsaturated fat for cooking.
Eliminate: Butter, margarine.
Prevent from: Storage of saturated fat in the body.
Instead of popping Smarties or M&Ms or skittles in your mouth the next time you feel hungry, try a healthier alternative of nuts (be it raw or roasted, but definitely NOT salted, heavily spiced or honey coated) or trail mix.
Eliminate: Candies, poptarts, gummy bears, milk chocolates, cereal flakes…
Prevent from: Bloated stomach, spiked blood sugar, excessive sugar intake.

Category 1 – They have the desire to eat healthy, but are consistently lured to the ‘dirty eating’ bandwagon by their colleagues, surrounding environment and limited choices of healthy food chains.
Category 2 – They don’t have the desire to eat healthy AT ALL, and doesn’t view it as a necessity to fork out their money just to eat healthy.
