The world is divided between those who eat to live and those to live to eat. The former, though, have a much healthier and happier life, in years to come.

The idea of hygienic food habits and diet control is the backbone of keeping fit as we grow up. A balanced diet, mixed with protein, vitamins and carbohydrates helps reduce ailments and sickness. Fast foods, on the other hand, give us momentary pleasure, only to break our body down, with the passage of time.
