There is a huge gap between living in the 1990s and living in the 2000s. From music to fashion, you name it. Also, people’s perception of beauty has changed drastically and so the rise of the health experts as well is dramatic.
Life before was not that complicated because people did not give a shit about their looks and their food intake. People were not paranoid. Even though there are health/fashion/food magazine, the articles were not exagerrated. Nowadays people can not eat without asking how much calories the food has. Kids can not even enjoy a small piece of chocolate because their parents are worried that sugar makes them hyper and whiny.
Today I had an argument with someone about disciplining kids. Funny though because neither of us do not have kids! Anyway, according to him kids should only get chocolates/candies on Saturdays because kids are more active before than today.
Yes it is true that children before are more active than the children of today, but I think this argument is just an excuse to avoid exerting more effort into disciplining the kids, in my opinion. I do not think that giving them a small amount of candy on a Monday would make them spoiled.
Instead of counting calories, can’t we just go out and play? Eat when we get hungry. Drink when we get thirsty. Indulge in sweets (in moderation) if we wanted too?
Can’t we simply just enjoy life?
