Food makes up an essential part of our everyday lives. It is difficult not to think about food, let alone forget it (Seeing as food is needed to power our bodies). With increasing food product options, advertising gimmicks, time-limited days, need for “quick-fixes” and increased pressure to perform to be successful, consumers are often found battling with choices and frustration due to conflicting information. On the other hand “body image” has become a familiar word on lips of many. The need to portray the correct “body image” has often place unrealistic expectations on people.
