  1. I love to eat, and I’ve been a big eater for most of my life. The foods I enjoy eating most are salty, fried, and/or covered in cheese. Pizza, nachos, and potato chips are some of my favorites. I’m not just crazy about junk food, though. I actually enjoy healthful foods like salad and fruit. I don’t eat them often enough because it’s such a pain to wash and cut fruits and vegetables. That’s the main reason I don’t have a very balanced diet. But, honestly, I will eat and enjoy just about anything from any country. On special days my wife and I like to eat Indian or Middle Eastern food. Their food is delicious and nutritious! I think the only food I really hate is nattō from Japan. It looks and tastes like snot. It’s disgusting (but good for you)!

  2. I like to eat bread. especially, a whipped- cream cake!! I love it!
    I dislike mushroom. Beacause it has a strange smell. I like things like pizza and burgers but i also like the vegetables. Thus i don’t think i have unbalanced diet. And i don’t like to eat a lot.
    I have not seen eatingfood from other cultures, but i like to challenge the new food.
    When i was child, i hated kimchi. But now i can’t eat rice without kimchi!

  3. When i was young, I didnt eat much food except meat. Im pretty sure these day many child love meat more than vegetable. Anyway parent try to made me eat all kind of vege but i could not eat it, It made me throw up or made me puke. I’m sure when i was child i hated that taste of carrot or cucumber , feels kind strange, and smell was bad. Now im growing man and i thought i could eat all kind of food but still there was many thing that i could not eat but vegetable is i can eat now!! that is something i am proved myself…
    These day i love to eat from differnt cultures, like Sushi from Japan, taco or burrito from Mexico and ofcoure from Amercian food.
    Even tho i dont eat much about food but i love to try new thing. that mean is I love food and I could not live without it.
    Im not sure what kind of foods im going to eat or try but im very exciting and looking forward to it!! lol

  4. I hate to eat mushroom. and I even don’t eat eggplant only one in my life. There are same reason. They are light and clean. right, I don’t agree them. but they are overly soft. It is serious and critical to me. exactly the soft temper is very terrible. the same Sujebi, clam, eggplant are. I can eat the thing a bit these days. but It is ‘a bit’. I don’t forget when I was young to eat Sujebi and puke.

  5. I think I don’t have a balanced diet. Beacause I like meat, cheese and all kind of fatty foods. Especially, when I was young I never eat vegetables. Maybe that makes me as this figure. Anyway, now days I eat most kind of vegetables and even like some kinds, like perilla leaf and lettuce, but I still hates carrot,paprika, and scallion. Though My eating habbit have changed, My originally prefered food have not chanded. I love all kind of fatty food, especially chicken. When I have enough money I eat choicken as often as I can. Cheese is my favorit food too, so my best choice when I want to eat pizza is adding all kinds of cheese topping to Domino Pizza’s cheese pizza. That’s fantastic. It’s too greasy and heavy to eat but sometimes that kings of greasy pizza makes me happy. I must have bad eating habbit and I know that’s very for my health and appearance. However, I can’t stop eating this sort of foods.

  6. my favorite food is curry because it is little spicy! so when i go to restaurant, i often eat this! and i love oily food. (ex.pizza,chicken) but! i hate really sweet food. for example i hate hershey`s chocolate and so on..
    sometimes i think I don`t have a balanced diets.. beause always eat my favorite foods(not various food.). so i`m think need change to balanced diets. (but i do not eat much food, i think this habit is good )
    when i young, i hate all meats. but now i love chicken!

  7. I really like sweet food. Especially, i love candy and chocolate.
    I also like spicy food. and fatty food, too.
    I think i don’t have balanced diet. because i always eat what i like to eat.
    i know it is bad for my body. but i can’t stop.
    I think i don’t like food from other cultures or new foods.
    because i like familiar food. i don’t want to have a new experience.
    and l really hate paprika,broccoli. i know i need them but i hate their taste.
    but i think health is most important in my life. and i will have a balanced diet.

  8. Almost like I somehow transfer the food is tolerable.

    Toppokki the rice cakes, fish cakes, seasoned with pepper and put a variety of vegetables is cooked, spicy taste of food poisoning is to be attractive.

  10. i like sweets, like chocolate and macaron.
    and i don’t like vegetables. especially paprika.

  11. I think I have good eating habits. I am not a picky. There are some foods that a child doesn’t like to eat such as beans, garlic, and other vegetables. However, I have enjoyed eating them since I was a child. While I love them, I also like to eat meat and junk foods. Actually these days I eat junk foods too much. So I got a fat. Now is my fattest moment. I am planning to diet from tomorrow. I ate my last chicken just before write this. I believe I can lose my weight!

    But when I grow up to about 17, I ate it again and found the new world.

    so If paprika and red pepper in food, I subtract it.
    I eat everything except paprika and red pepper.

  14. I like fried food.
    Especially, pork cutlet,chicken and deep-fried. Because these foods are strong-tasting and stimulate my appetite.
    But, usually I can’t eat enough fried food because I know that it is not good for health.
    So I always exercise after fried food eating.
    And I don’t like spicy food. because when I ate spicy food, it make me annoy.
    After mouth is full of spicy food, I have to drink water continuously .
    So I rarely eat spicy food.
    Thus I don’t think I have balanced diet because I don’t eat any spicy food.
    I like food from other culture.
    Particularly rice noodles and Taiwanese food.
    Because I love new experience.

    The food I like from other culture are spaghetti and sushi.
    Among of sushi, salmon is my favorite.

Um.. just thinking about it, I’m so happy! I think I always eat sweet foods. So my weight incresed gradually… On the other hands, I dislike salty food(escept for cheeses). Because my family doesn’t eat salty food. I think it’s a genetic problem. Nevertheless, I don’t have a balanced diet. I ate a meal when I want to eat. And eat only one food. I will fix it someday…
