9th Grade Final (Nutrition) Exam: Persuasive, healthy, and delicious.

Hello once again people who read this blog! So it's time for the final exams to start rolling in, starting with none other than my nutrition. I'm going to be giving you all 3 (possibly) detailed reasons as to why it's good to eat healthy and exercise, instead of eating Micky D's as your main meal and being a cough vegetable. So without further ado, on with the post! (Insert dramatic drum roll sound here)

Reason 1: You can look REALLY good.
 It's really as simple as that. Or at least for most people. As you would expect, there are MANY ways to be healthy. Contrary to popular belief in this dumb culture, you don't need to have a six pack (guys) or the worlds largest "thigh gap" (ladies) to be considered attractive. I mean look at me. I'm 15, not too active, but I do bike and do other activities. That said, I do spend a lot of time in the house (It's a livin), and I do eat.. Inappropriately from time to time. But I usually make up for that. The result is me with not a six back, more like a natural 4 pack, but I'm not overweight either. In fact, strangely enough, I didn't gain any weight through ages 11 and 14. But I got taller, and that's all that matters hehe. I just wanted to get that out of the way. You don't need to look like Hulk Hogan to be considered "healthy", you just need to be active, eat well, and avoid too much junk food. Besides, Hulk Hogan looks like a walrus.

 Reason 2: It keeps your body working well.
 This is arguably the most important reason. You only get one body, incase you didn't notice. So taking care of it is a must. Unhealthy eating can lead to blood sugar problems, diabetes, and obesity. America is on the way to being the most obese of all the country's. I blame fried chicken. Mmm, fried chicken...
 Anyway. Proper ways to eat healthy include: Eating an appropriate amount of each food group for each meal. Not eating in between meals, though it's a shame I barely follow this one. If you do choose to eat outside of meals, try eating something healthy. Like an apple. Or a banana. Or in my case, two lemon cookies. With a banana. I would recommend sun chips, but I wouldn't touch those with a 100 foot pole with the Grinch in front of them. Making a food plan. This way you can keep track of how much food you eat for each meal and in between meals. You can check off each time you succeed, and erase the checks when the day ends.
 The body you have is the only one you'll ever have. Isn't it best to go through the effort to take care of it?

 Reason 3: Your life will be far more enjoyable.
 Now let me ask you something quick. Which of these sounds best:
 Being healthy and living your life to the fullest?
 Or, eating junk food all the time and raising the chances of getting illnesses at a young age?
 If you chose the first one, congratulations! You've won a banana!
 No one wants to be that one guy in a group like "Hey, you wanna come play (insert random activity)?" "Naw thanks man, my (Insert bodily problem that prevents them from doing random activity)." "Aw, alright." Because that's just no fun. Think of all the stuff you can use your body for. Building, skiing, swimming, scuba diving, running (from a madman), biking (from a madman), and countless other stuff. Life is too short to waste by treating your body poorly. Go out and exercise! Pay fewer visits to Micky D's (despite how convenient they are)! And spread the word as to why eating healthy is the right choice! It's the right, and best thing to do.

Well, that's all I've got for this. I hope you all enjoyed this, and maybe opened your eyes a little bit. I will see you all next time. Peace.
