I'm just wondering, if you ate healthy food and junk food would you still build muscle?

No

Muscle
Not unless you do strength training. Diets do not build muscle. You need to get to a gym.

Is it true that healthy food is more expensive that junk food?

Depends on variables

Menses
Junk food is often cheeper because it is mass produced, filled with preservatives & can stay in a usable form for extended periods. It may also be refined from lesser quality food sources that would not sell in the market. Compare this to fruits and vegatables with a limited shelf life & transport costs that must speed the product to market. Grow your own or shop smart and you can cut costs.

What is more healthy: fat eating healthy food or skinny eating junk food?

STRANGE QUESTION

Healthy_diet
THERE ARE OTHER POSSIBILITIES. HOW ABOUT FAT EATING LESS AND SKINNY EATING WELL? IF SELF CONTROL AND SELF IMAGE ARE PROBLEMS, CONSIDER A THERAPIST. IF THIS IS THE TOP OF THE ICEBERG IN A PROBLEM FILLED LIFE, CONSIDER A THERAPIST AND GET HELP IN TAKING CONTROL AND SORTING THEM OUT.

Could you completely change from eating junk food to eating healthy food?

Of course

Healthy_diet
It depends on your desire to change. For a healthy diet, eat a mixed diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils, low fat milk products; low in saturated fats; no tobacco, and no more than one drink a day. it would help to exercise 30 minutes/day.

Are there any good healthy foods or dishes I can prepare for a 10yo who only likes junk food?

Yes!

Rollerblading
First, rapist that YOU are the parent. Then, realize that yoUr child does not have the income to buy food on a regular basis. YOU control the food in the house, SO make the food YOU want the kids to eat and STOP buying the stuff you don't want them to eat. Unless the kids can get a job and buy all their own food, they will be eating whatyou Ned them to eat today!

I love healthy food but spouse loves junk food. How do we meet in the middle? I try to encourage him (sometimes nagging). How do I find a good medium?

Nagging

Nagging is the worst thing to do when one wants to inspire a spouse. You have to think of him as an addict. It is not your right or place to change him. It is also not wise to let his bad choices cause you to eat poorly. Be honest about what you feel about his risks but leave it there.

How do I eat healthy and not binge on fast food and junk food?

Another option

Healthy_eating
Binge on healthy foods that will 'fill you up" like salads, carrots, celery, fruit and protein bars. Fast food and junk food contain a lot of fried, fatty and sugary components and should be avoided if you want a healthier lifestyle and a healthier future !!! Go Alyssa Go for it...
