Eating has evolved with humans as more than just a mere act of survival. Today we have varying styles of cuisine that span across nations and the cultures within them. Furthermore, we all have differing tastes, opposing techniques and flavors that we have grown up on. While cooking and eating may have began as a path of exploration and freedom, we now have unwritten restrictions as to what is and is not ok to eat. As an example, within our society options like insects, pet-like animals, rats, rotting foods, tongues, and even testicles are among some foods that are considered taboo and would break our norms, or might even cause revulsion. While we may not realize it, our society strongly dictates exactly what we like to eat every day. Some…
Likewise, Paula Martinac in her article Eating in Vs. Eating Out claimed that “you can also stretch a smaller serving of meat by cutting it into strips and stir-frying it with vegetables, thereby cutting down on cost, as well as saturated fat.” It means that we can control how much nutrition on the that we consume and how much food that we eat.

Healthy-eating guidelines have generally been derived solely on an epidemiological basis with little or no account being taken of consumer attitudes and perceptions. These guidelines have been used in health promotion program to try to alter the population’s eating habits. However, they have met with limited success.
