When thinking in regards to Motivation, food is one of the most common and important. There is the instinctual and evolutionary need to sustain ones self with food in order to survive. Learning about the different aspects of food behaviors in todays society was very interesting. If fortune enough to be above poverty level, there are many different aspects to food selection. Many people are even eating more than necessary for sustainability, and suffering from being overweight. A major contributing source is Fast Food places which serve extremely fatty foods. This made sense when reading about fat preference with humans. I personally think it is a shame that healthy foods aren't as readily available as unhealthy options. Cooking from raw ingredients is one of the most healthy ways to eat. I found the mere exposure effect to be inspiring because it proves that eating healthy can be accustomed to and turned into habit.
