This article focuses on a diet book called “The Beverly Hills Diet” which written by a women named Judy Mazel who has been suffering with an eating disorder since early adolescents. This diet book relates back to the main point of mass media affecting body image issues just from the tile and emphasis on Beverly Hills. When one thinks about Beverly Hills what comes to mind is tall, blond, sun kissed skin, and blue eyed girl and just in the tile an ideal is clear. The targeted customers for this book is anyone but it is more appealing to those who suffer from obesity and “this is the first time an eating disorder- anorexia nervosa- has been marketed as a cure for obesity” (Wooley and Wooley 57). The author herself used to be quite heavy but what she failed to mention to her readers is that her weight loss is due to the use of diuretics and other weight loss type of drugs.
I was actually very excited to eat my Cinnamon Toaster Strudel; having this for breakfast was a little recess every once in a while from the quotidian bowl of Cheerios and milk. I placed the pastry into the rightmost slot, turned the dial to the lowest setting, and pulled down the lever with enthusiasm. During the 365 days I was waiting for it to finish, I amused myself by fiddling with the icing bag, and even sneaking a little taste on my fingertip. At last, the golden brown breakfast pastry sprung from the top of the toaster. I smeared the rest of the unhealthy, white supplement on top and observed it drip over the sides.
For example, McDonalds have changed their happy meals towards kids by giving parents and children more options to choose from. Instead of French fries, kids can choose to have apple slices or yogurt. Per Krisberg, “While most restaurants offered healthy side and beverage options only 33 out of more than 5,400 kids meal combinations met recommended nutrition standards”. There have been numerous attempts that restaurants vow to improved their menu targeted towards kids. Many restaurants have eliminated the kid’s options which were praised because it was better than marketing a meal that is not actually healthy for
I have chosen one of the days of in my recorded Food Log in order to do the Fast Food Nation assignment. I had a healthy diet, but it was not well balanced according to the daily diet nutrition, I had for breakfast banana juice, cereal of chocolate, and whole wheat bread with peanut butter. Then, for lunch I had chicken breast, rice and vegetables, after that I went to subway because I was hungry and had 1 ft. long sandwich ( the sandwich had about all vegetables and beef). At noon I had a dinner and ate almost the same that I did at lunch just small changes; I ate rice, vegetable and a good piece of meat. Lastly, during the day I had some healthy snack of vegetable soup that my mom always do for me, like that probably I would gain some weight

As he prepared chicken with almonds and sultanas, he was reminded of Shoba in the kitchen singing to herself as she pounded garlic and cardamom pods, occasionally stopping to kiss Shukumar on the cheek. But Shoba hadn’t sang in the kitchen in a long time, and Shukumar knew that it if it wasn’t for him, she would eat a bowl of cereal for dinner. In her short story “A Temporary Matter,” Jhumpa Lahiri details Shoba and Shukumar’s crumbling marriage after the death of their newborn son. Shoba and Shukumar no longer eat together, and Shukumar prepares dinners for Shoba, making certain that Shoba eats the food that she once loved to prepare, even though he knew he could easily resort to serving her microwave dinners and PB&J’s. For Shoba, food evoked memories of happier times.

School systems need to start healthier school lunch initiatives, even in the heat of student backlash, because they provide needed nutrition to students, they give parents a feeling of security, and they help student academic
This is worthy of attention because, if we are so worried about our students becoming obese then we should not ban these important staples that cause less obesity in other countries. When they can help us create a healthy eating habit for these minors why should we ban these healthy meals? This quote from Gale opposing viewpoints says to think about it this way: ¨Consider that in France, where the childhood obesity rate is the lowest in the Western world, a typical four-course school lunch (cucumber salad with vinaigrette, salmon lasagna with spinach, fondue with baguette for dipping and fruit compote for dessert) would probably not pass
Some even take it so far that they use crazy tactics like eating cotton balls, smoking “twenty cigarettes with a cup of coffee”, or popping laxatives. This is why eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia is common in models.
