Kim Warren's curator insight, April 20, 2014 10:00 PM

This is a video about the idea of eating better causing people to look more attractive.  In this video, it talks about the aesthetic norm about how a persons body should look.  For example, this video says if you eat more vegetables, then your face will glow with more color and then you will get more admirers and be considered more beautiful.

Kristy Gipson's comment, April 21, 2014 12:35 PM
I agree that we as a society should practice better eating habits but to say certain foods will cause a magic effect is not the case with everyone. I think this would only discourage some people from eating good because if they eat all these good things and don't see the results that others say happen when you eat these foods. Being responsible for our health and the health of the ones we love is the key.
Lisamarie Kolster's comment, April 22, 2014 10:36 AM
I do agree that people should eat better, but do not agree with the guys approach. Yes eating better essentially does make your body better, and can improve things such as nails, hair skin, and other things. He makes it sound though as if the only beautiful eat the right amount of healthy foods and if you don’t then you’re ugly. I don’t like when people to try to make an argument with an appeal to force, saying if you don’t do this then you’re this. People do pull more towards the stereotype that beautiful people look like this because they do this, and I understand why he’d make his argument in that way but I think as society we shouldn’t think that way. You should eat healthy for the other benefits not just because it makes people beautiful.

Some good points in this piece, but DON"T turn your meat frequently on the grill! A little char makes your meat taste good.  I'd rather eat less red meat that tastes great, then some pale gray steak that might be more healthy.
