Firstly, I don't think it's always avoidance.
There are two main culprits out there which stop people eating a healthy option.
Firstly, there's convenience food:
There is too much out there that is branded as convenience food - eg, ready meals - which are seen by many as an 'affordable option'.
These are chosen over eating a eating a healthy, balanced diet, because they're cost effective for those on a tight budget and may well be the affordable option, but are rarely a healthy, balanced option.
On the other hand, there is fast food - burgers, takeaways etc.
These are definitely tasty and are identified with from advertising - because everyone shown is healthy and enjoying themselves, but they're rarely the healthy option when used as the primary source of nutrition.
Often this food is eaten because it saves having to prepare food in advance, but worse, those who eat it get into a rut where they feel the don't have to prepare their food anymore. What they don't appreciate is that what they're eating is not providing them with that healthy, balanced diet.
So in some cases, it's laziness that is the issue, sometimes it's time and sometimes it's not having the budget to afford healthy eating.
some people, I think, simply are not well informed.
but many people, in fact, eat healthy and I seem that there is increasingly a particulary attention to our health
Some people do not know what is good for them. Others simply do not care.
There are a lot of convenience foods now a days and many of them are not good for you(Not all but a lot)

Too much of everything leads to disaster and discontent. Eating sweets, sticky buns and grease covered foods will never make you lose weight. This is a fact in which we always make a mistake out of. It hurts but that is the bitter pill to swallow.So why do you continue eating things that are bad...

So, I'm a pretty healthy eater (mostly), and I try to keep full with fiber-rich foods (whole grains, beans, etc), drinking water, and trying to eat lots of veggies, but I feel hungry all the time. I'm also trying to eat smaller meals more often, which I know is good, but sometimes is harder....

With all the knowledge we have about bad food, why do we still continue to eat bad food?Unhealthy food causes malutrition, disease and a bunch of problems if eaten on a regular basis... Why do we (The the US) continue to eat it?

What do you think is harder: eating healthy or working out consistently?
