15 Struggles You Face When You're Trying To Be Healthy

Wine is made from grapes, so it's basically a salad. Right? Make choosing healthy food options easier with the FoodSwitch app.

1. Spending way too long at the supermarket trying to work out which products are better for you.

2. Picking the "healthier" option when you go out but having to watch as your friends eat the fried chicken you really wanted to order.

3. Then finding out the salad you ate wasn't so healthy after all.

4. Having to politely decline when there's birthday cake in the office for the fifth day in a row.

5. Attempting to keep up with (aka learn how to pronounce) all the new food trends.

6. Reading the labels on all the food in your fridge trying to find something healthy to eat.

7. Resisting temptation when your friends keep offering you all their unhealthy-yet-delicious food.

8. Then having them complain that you're hangry all the time.

9. Sticking to your promise of just one drink when Friday knock-offs come around.

10. Holding yourself back when faced with your one great weakness.

11. Trying to find the willpower to stop yourself after just one or two.

12. And resorting to hiding certain foods from yourself when your self-control fails you.

13. Telling yourself you can eat whatever you want, as long as you do some exercise.

14. Then putting on your gym clothes but never actually making it to the gym.

15. And finally, wondering whether this whole "being healthy" thing has to be so hard?!
