We are what we eat

You are what you eat. But can we eat properly? We can meet different caf?s and restaurants in the each corner of the streets. So, fast food is very popular not only with adult people but in most of the cases with children. But how does this food influence the health?

Why do people prefer fast food? Firstly, it is a good chance to have a snack when you do not have enough time. This food is cooked very fast and you don`t need to wait for a long time being hungry. Secondly, fast food is not expensive and you can buy it almost everywhere. If you want to eat you don`t have to pay a lot of money for it. Thirdly, fast food is tasty and nourishing.

But some people don`t eat fast food. They think that it is very unhealthy and it is harmful for their health. This food consists of cholesterol, and because of it, people, who like fast food and eat it very often, suffer from the obesity and they are inclined to the heart disease, gastric disease and some other problems.

We should understand that food is an important part of our life. We should choose healthy food which is not harmful for us. I am against of fast food but sometimes I can allow to have a snack when I am terribly hungry and I do not have enough time to eat properly. Food must be useful but fast food destroy our health, but we know that "health is the greatest wealth".


Food is an essential part of our daily life. One famous English saying goes “We are what we eat”, and it’s true. The food we eat can influence our body and our mind. It contains nutrients, such as proteins, vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates. Different products contain different nutrients. For example, we can get lots of vitamins eating fruit and vegetables. As for me, I like salads very much but I don’t like meat products. The food we choose to eat depends on many factors. First and the most important is the taste. If we like the taste of the product, we often eat it. The second factor is its nutritional value. If the product is healthy and useful for our body, we should add it to our ration. Other factors include culture and religion. Advertising also influences our choices a lot. When we see colourful ads on TV, we decide to try the product. For some people food is just a fuel for energy. For me, it’s a pleasure. I like almost everything, except meat products and spinach. My usual day includes three or four meals. For breakfast, I prefer a cup of tea with a cheese and ham sandwich. Sometimes I eat cereal with milk and drink a glass of orange juice. For lunch, I prefer salads from fresh vegetables and a soup. At about 5pm I have a cup of coffee with shortcake. For dinner, I like pasta or rice with vegetables. Sometimes I eat French fries and hamburgers but I know that it contains a lot of fat. That’s why I try to cut down on fast food. I also try to it less sugar and salt.
