American's At Obesity

After reading this article, maybe you’ll expand your overall view on food, what foods you select and consume as a part of your everyday eating. Just keep in mind that “America” is the land of the free, and unfortunately, in a way it is just that when it comes to nutrition. I say this because this is the only country where there’s a variety of food from all over the globe, such as Italian, Chinese, Jamaican, Indian, Moroccan, Japanese, African, etc... Know that the American culture is the only culture that is exposed to a large variety of food choices. I ask, is this a major factor that contributes to obesity being that other cultures aren't as obese as Americans? Nutrition, consumption of macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), and the way it affects overall health including, body performance, hair, skin, nails, etc... So the saying ,“you are what you eat” sounds about right. So, be aware of what you are putting in your body because it will, it does and can affect your overall health. What we eat/nutrition is a learned behavior, and this is what contributes to factors of what we eat (ex. in different cultures we eat specific/different foods that other cultures may not find appealing), this becomes routine, of human behavior. Once we become adults we are acclimated to those food choices that we have previously learned and/or selected, no matter if they are good or bad.
