are you picky with your food? having a well balanced diet is very important to one's health. is your diet healthy and balanced? are you picky about food? what specific food are you against? it is quite obvious that balance diet is good for our health however sometimes it just seems hard for us to do that. take an example of me. therenare always some kinds of food that i do not want to eat, such as hot pepper and so on. on the other hand, the tasts of the food plays an major role on affecting our appetite. actually i ahve never picked any foodswhich i like most and others i do not. though i was told having a well balaced diet was healthy to my body when iw as young, i had no choose picking my food then there were just some pickle and steamed bread on the table. no milk. no meat and even no other vegetables. however, we tasted all that and felt every deliciously. nowadays when seeing the table, i alwyas think of the food what i ate when young. i am not a pick eater although i cna not have some specialfood which are cooked by some small restaurants because i am afraid these food cooked are dirty especially after i have loked at how they were washing any vegetable and hows i know we should have a wel balanced diet which is important to one's health, but i hate tufo smelly.

I am a very picky eater! I couldn't begin to tell you the specifics of food I don't eat the list would keep you hear for days. I have a well balanced diet and eat many different foods but am not only picky about what I won't eat but picky about HOW I eat stuff. Like I absolutly can not eat meat rare. I like it well done. The show of blood or pink actually grosses me out! I try to keep variety and eat the different food groups though.

I may eat nearly all the foods and love most of them, but my favorites are fish and bean products, this should not mean being picky with foods.

Yes, I am picky with my food as well. There are veggies and fish that I don't like to eat. I don't like liver, milk fish, carrots, pepper etc, and some dishes that is kinda exotic in a way. I know that it is not good to be picky in my food and to have a good balanced diet but well, I am such a picky in my food.

I can be picky with food. There are times that i dont like eating anything that has oil. There are also other times that i dont like eating anything without a soup. I hate being picky but i just cant help it. It even gets worst now that i am pregnant. I have so many cravings but all those food that i want is hard to find. So most of the time i end up dissapointed and unable to eat.

yes, i am quietly picky with my food. for example, i like scramble egg but i dont like fried egg, because i think when i eat fried egg it make me get stomachache because the smell come from the egg. when i eat scramble egg, the egg smell is already mixed up with other food

If I eat at home I know where the foods come from and there is no reason to fear it. Food is eaten because it nourishes our bodies. Being picky about the flavor is something made up by mankind. Food served the way mother nature made it for us has to be the best way to eat.

I think all of us have to eat a balance diet not for us to be sick. I am not picky with the food that I eat but as for now I can't eat that much anymore like I used to. Their are vegetables that I can eat like the vegetable that has a lot of seeds, like tomatoes,eggpland,beans and others cause my uric acid is really high. I can't eat too much sweet also cause my sugar is kinda high. I can't eat fats anymore cause my cholesterol is also high. What I eat now is chicken and fish, yellow and green leafy vegetables once a week no fat pork, and only fish poor me. Have a nice morning!

I am extremely picky. I love healthy food like vegetables and stuff, but also can not live without sweet stuff. I don't eat red meat, seafood, or pork. I don't really know why, I just don't like them. I hate the way the meat in a hamburger is ground up like that. It grosses me out

I hate seafood. I won't eat it. Although, there are two things from seafood that I will eat on occasions. I like lobster but, it has to be so smothered in melted butter that I can't tell it is seafood. I also like shrimp but, only in one restaurant. I like the way that Benihana's makes it because it barely tastes like seafood. Otherwise, I don't eat fish or seafood at all. It is disgusting. LOL! I also won't eat any meat other than Chicken, Pork or Beef.

I am very picky. I don't really like spicey food and don't like a lot of vegetables. I would eat a better diet, but there is a problem of not having enough time to cook a well balanced meal, and I'm not hungry very often. When I do eat, I try to eat a lot of soups that would have vegetables in it. I also eat a lot of pasta since it is so quick and easy to make.

I must say I am very picky with when it comes to eating my food. There are a lot of dishes especially Filipino dishes that I don't like. The most loved "sinigang" (sour tasting soup either with pork or shrimp and some veggies) which everyone I know loves eating except me. I don't like "dinuguan" a dish made out of an animals blood with pork. Everyone here in the Philippines loves "dinuguan" but not me. I am very particular with the presentation of the food. If I see the food doesn't look no matter how tasty it is I wouldn't try it.
