    Do you think that the amount of awareness about healthy life increased ?

    I think that the awareness about healthy life increased a lot through the past 10 years. People now care more about healthy food, exercises and the matter of being in shape. However, there is massive amount of people who still suffer from over weight.

    Yes, there is more awareness about being healthy, but the problem is that choosing a path is difficult. There are research groups that keep putting out "new" information on what is healthy and what is not. Then another group has the opposite theory. The same is true for exercise, foods, medical tests, and more.

    Over the years, the food pyramid for the foods that were recommended that we eat as published by the government has been wrong, and changed a number of times.

    Coffee is good, coffee is bad, and this see saws all the time as "new" research is published. Replace Coffee with any other item, it is the same.

    The point is that all that is published is not verified, and proven much less true.

      Yes! That is 100% true, I face this problem while searching on the net for a healthy diet till I become very confused. For that, going to a specialist dietitian is the best idea although some times it might be expensive but worth trying.

    I believe it has.  There are many different diet/lifestyle changes out there like:

    Clean Eating
    South Beach
    Comfort Foods Diet
    Paleo Diet

    The problem with these diets, they may work for one person but not another.  Like with the South Beach and Atkins diet, it concentrates on eating more proteins and less carbs.  That is difficult if you are married and your spouse is more a carb person.

    The problem with obesity is, in my opinion, is people probably find it more convenient to either to go to a fast food restaurant or purchase ready made meals that you just throw in the microwave.  Of the diets I mentioned above, I like the Comfort Foods one because there is a wide variety of food you can eat.  However, it would require a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and preparing meals.  With my job working night shift with a  commute that is over an hour each way, it is difficult to do this as well as going to the gym.

      I agree with every word you said. I tried to go on these diets before but I couldn't they require hard effort, for that I prefer to go on a balanced diet although It would take more time to loss wait but it's healthier for your body.

      It can be expensive too.  For example South Beach can run over $100 a week if you follow their meal plan.  I am going to try Portion Perfect, the one with the colored containers. Seems pretty easy to prepare meals
