Don't judge a book by its cover !

People should be judged by their behaviors not their appearance

We should judge people by there character

Some people struggle with their diet but that doesn't mean they aren't good people

Good Foods Vs Bad Foods

All foods are good in moderation

Foods become bad when you eat after you are full

Fruits and Vegetables are the best but sweets are good sometimes as well

Eat a diversity of snacks

Don't eat foods due to emotions

Media Influence

The media wants to make perfection seem normal

They start an unrealistic image for people

When you see advertisements you should ignore them if they are unrealistic

You shouldn't dwell on the image of the actors and you should be happy with your own image

Teach people to be proud of their image
