Don’t freak out I’m not going to start preaching on how to eat healthy, even though I would love too, the advertisers are already doing that job form me.
We all know that good health is very vital and especially now that the winter is approaching. It is also have been said with a healthy diet one can have a “happy life”. The word healthy goes with a certain image that is perceived by the society. If you a guy you are expected to have a rock tone body and if you a girl to have a slim figured body. However they don’t say anything about if you gay or lesbian. #hides
Anyway wherever we turn we see the word HEALTHY. YEP it is being pates in our faces everyday from day in, day out. We are bombarded by lots of these health diets such as THE FEEL FULL DIET, LOW-GI EATING PLAN, 7-days-feel-good menu plan etc. How do we get our heads around that? I mean who gets to decide who is a healthy person? And how does that person decide.
I’m one of the healthiest people you could find in Cape Town, well that is what people think and their reason is that because I’m a vegetarian, I don’t smoke, I don’t drink and I hardly eat junk. How that makes me healthy I don’t know.
I though let me go around asking people who are perceived to be healthy and this is what they had to say:
Brat: What is an ideal healthy person?
S’bu: It is a person who balance everything
Rey: Someone who eats well and healthily. Does exercise and take care of him/herself.
Sphe: Well I guess it is the perception of eating right and body shape.
Amy: Someone who cares about all health aspect, exercise and nutrition.
MacDonald: Someone who exercises and has a balance diet.
Sabi: Someone who feels comfortable in his/ her body not just physically but emotional.
Brat: What makes you think you a healthy person?
S’bu: I eat anything, maybe the gym and rugby.
Rey: I exercise, play sport. Eat lots of healthy food and drink lots of water.
Sphe: Because I feel healthy.
Amy: I avoid junk food and I go to gym 5 times a week for an hour.
MacDonald: I try by all means to eat a balanced meal, I go to the gym everyday for an hour.
