I have personally never had a hard time eating healthy! Every day i allow myself a treat though because of my fast metabolism! But I have heard and witnessed people struggling to eat healthy. Any thoughts on why? Is it income issues, disinterest, laziness, etc? Thanks 😊🌸

I feel a major factor is know how. It is rather shocking how many people don't know how to prepare and cook fresh food.
Also, laziness is an issue as well. Some people don't want to put the time in. Buying fresh veggies means going to the store more often. Cooking requires peeling and cutting produce, washing meat, using knives and cutting boards, dirtying pots and pans, cleaning utensils, washing dishes, taking time to plan and cook meals.
Many just say "to hell with it " and go to a Jack In The Box drive through.0

I mostly eat healthy, too. A lot of healthy foods are actually delicious, and it's nice putting things in your body that don't make you feel gross afterwards.
Healthy food tends to be more expensive than unhealthy food and fast food -- a sad reality. Also if you're busy (or lazy), it's easier to just grab something unhealthy than to find ingredients and take the time to cook something that's actually good for you.
Another reason could be habit. Some people are stuck in their ways of eating unhealthily and don't really care about how it's affecting their body.1
