5 Reasons Why We Don't Eat Healthy


Is eating healthy difficult? Why doesn't everyone do it? Well, everyone is built different and we may all have our own reasons.

Remember the saying "It takes 21 days to form a good habit" ? Well.. it's actually a minimum of 21 days. On average, it takes more than 2 months to get on track. That's why making healthy eating a habit is a marathon, not a sprint.

Reason 1: It's too expensive!

Many associate organic foods and quality products with high costs. This is because people are used to taking quality as the deciding factor of the price tag. Organic foods are good quality foods.. aren't they?
The cost of burger meal doesn't differ much from a regular salad bowl. In addition, healthy food is fresher and better for you -- It helps nourish you the right way and helps fuel you through the day better.

The cost of health care in Singapore is expensive -- Majority of the people are spending billions of dollars dealing with illnesses that are related to consuming eating junk food too frequently. Depending on your genetic build-up and your current habits, it can cost less.

Reason 2: It's too much work.

Eating healthy does require a bit of an effort, but it’s definitely worth it in the long term.
It definitely beats falling sick, going to the doctor and missing work/school. And think about it -- when you're heavier, you would be carrying around a lot of extra weight throughout your day. Now that is a lot of work!

Still in need of convenient healthy food? Can't cook or not sure what to prep? That's why we are here.

We offer Weekday only meal plan services with different menu every week. Why weekdays only? Because on weekdays, you're busy hustling, may it be taking care of children, rushing out that report for work or school. It's times like this where fast and unhealthy foods are your most likely go-to. While on weekends, you will have more time and of course, it's a good time for cheat days as you'll be out with your family and friends!

Can't bring yourself to commit to meal plans? Well, we offer meal kits as an alternative as well!
Why this works? We offer a range of Carbs, Proteins, Vegetables, Soup & Sauces for you to mix&match. Super fuss-free and flexible : Our protein comes marinated and vegetable comes with seasoning too! They are low in calories and nasty stuff free!

We are here to kickstart your journey with you.

Reason 3: I don't like vegetables.

Honestly, me too. No matter how hard I try, I still get reluctant eating veggies. 😵‍💫
But that is how it all started -- I had to figure out a way to eat more vegetables and trust me, with the right mix and right method of cooking, vegetables can be delicious. You'd be surprise how tasty they can be!

Reason 4: Junk food are just irresistible.

Sometimes I just wonder, could it just be the ads taking effect? Fast food ads are everywhere & there will be at least one fast food store around your neighbourhood. I get it, the ads can be really enticing! 🤩

The basic reason for this is simple: They are are rich in calories. Our brains like getting hold of calories and respond by releasing various feel good hormones like Serotonin and certain Opiads. This reduces stress and improves our mood. Food that is high in sugar and fat actually affects the brain just like some drugs do which is why fast food are commonly described as “addictive”.

It’s no surprise-- Junk food is designed to be tasty, comforting and convenient. It can give us an instant but temporary mood lift.

But it's definitely okay to indulge in these guilty pleasures once in awhile! 😋

Reason 5: Lack of self motivation

No exercising, not eating healthy.
Change is gradual, and it's different for each individual. We all have a different level of motivation. For me, I enjoy eating anything I can find and I laze around.

Self motivation is a HUGE struggle for many – even for myself, simply knowing what’s better is not enough to ward off temptation. But at the end of the day, your health is a reflection of the choices you have made up – all the excuses that eating healthier is more expensive, you don’t make enough money for this lifestyle.

What I do is that I find a reason to eat healthy. With TROFI offering low calorie products and meal plans, it gave me a kickstart and it kept me going. I am excited to try the new dishes they offer and I even found my favourites!

Your health is your responsibility. ❤️

We hope we start off your motivation to a healthier you. Life is too short not to feel great all the time! - Team TROFI
