Why it's Important to the Wilt family to eat healthy

My family has always eaten healthy on some level, but in recent years it has become more of an issue. My dad changed his diet because of his diabetes, and didn't want to take all of the pills the doctors gave him, he made up his mind that there had to be a better way. So over about the last five years, he has started exercising daily and eats healthy, and he has gone from 240 to 190 and has a safe handle on his diabetes.

I eat healthy because I am an athlete and to me being in shape doesn't just mean physical, its also taking care of the inside of my body. And to be honest fast food and junk food isn't all the good tasting to eat every day, sure once in a while it's nice, but I would rather snack on grapes than potato chips.

My mom eats healthy because is more convenient and fits her lifestyle. She is extremely busy and by eating the right food she has more energy and can concentrate better and longer. She also eats healthy because of the heart problems that her grandparents had that she doesn't want.
