No: Not unless you do strength training. Diets do not build muscle. You need to get to a gym. ...Read more

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

Depends on variables: 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. ...Read more

How are junk food and healthy food different?

Food: Hi. The names say it ALL. Junk food has all the wrong stuff and none of the right stuff (i.e., "junk"), and healthy food has good stuff and little or no bad stuff (i.e., "healthy"). See how easy that was?! ...Read more

How does the cost of healthy food compare to that of junk food?

Unfortunately: In many circumstances, "healthy" foods cost more than "junk" food. Some of this revolves around what comprises "healthy" foods versus "junk" food, as governmental subsidies allow for the food stuffs that tend to make up most of "junk" food cheaper than healthy foods! Just think about how massive a meal you can get at McDonald's for under six bucks or even less ! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Overeating : Overeating, or eating the wrong foods such as junk food should not be a solution to boredom. You need to find other activities of interest to occupy your time so that eating is not the main attraction. ...Read more

What healthy food to eat if I suddenly hungry at night? Especially while studying, junk food make me fat.

Salads: Late at night you don't want to pack on calories, so foods that induce satiety are the trick. Peanut butter on Celery, or fruits are always good. Avoid Carbohydrates at night as if you are not going to use the energy right away your body will convert them to a storage of energy=fat. ...Read more

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

Of course: 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. ...Read more
