Take a good, long look across the dinner table the next you and your family have gathered together for some sort of sit down, formal meal?
What exactly do you see?
Chances are if you're struggling with your weight, eating right or overall health and wellness, your family (and friends for that matter) might be as well. Studies have shown that overeating, bad eating habits in general and issues with controlling your weight aren't just a result of lack of exercise or you specifically making bad choices.
Those shortcomings also can come as a result of how you were raised as a child, the eating habits and tendencies of your parents or the kinds of food you've always been exposed throughout the course of your life.
Assuming that your eating habits are all your own is a bit short sighted, and those who scoff at the idea your family can't influence how you eat don't understand how habits are formed at a very young age and are hard to break. If your house never had fruit, vegetables or perhaps the right kind of snacks, who's to say you'll know or even want to do anything differently.
