Everyone has habits or life practices that affect some other part of their life, in this case decisions related to food. Life factors such as culture and tradition also heavily contribute to food choices and dietary habits. For example: a factor in my life contributing to my food choices would be me simply being a teenager. As a teen, I feel I need lots of energy to do many of the tasks at hand, whether it’s school, personal hobbies, or my job. You can’t change you age, but when your age does finally change, it’s almost certain that your food choices change as well.
A factor in my life that affects my dietary habits is the hobby of PC gaming. A true gamer often goes hours without eating. Lots of times, when we do eat, it’s things like cookies, cupcakes, or anything with a significant amount of sugar to keep us full of energy to game more and keep us from getting too tired too soon into the night. This diet is default for all gamers. But you don’t have to change your life or activities to change your diet. It is not mandatory that you must change your life, to change your dietary habits.
Even though it is not mandatory to change your life to change eating habits, it very well may do so anyway. For example: someone who isn’t in the military may have poor dietary habits. They don’t have to join the military to start eating healthier, but if they do their diet will significantly change.
