Eating habits are not just personal choices of individuals, but are influenced by others around us. We tend to adopt many things from our family and friends. Not only their mannerisms and fashion choices incite us, but also what they eat.
We may not even be aware of how we caught the habits. Studies have revealed that the eating habits of the people with whom we move close by, are responsible for influencing the food choices we make.
Obesity and overweight issues are growing day by day. Many factors contribute to this epidemic. People do not have the time to think about what they eat and find fast foods as a quick fix.
When we spend more time with our friends we tend to adopt their eating patterns. Children adopt eating habits from their parents. Peers also play a major role in the way our lifestyle shapes up.
On the other hand, healthy lifestyles of others can have a positive effect on us.
