Information: Your diet, healthy eating
You have probably been told to do the following
Eat regularly, don't miss meals
Don't eat too much fat, or fast foods (full of fat and salt)
Don't diet too much
Eat vegetables, and fibre
Don't drink too much alcohol
Don't smoke
Most teenagers don't do this, fast food is cheap and easy to get, and prepare if you are cooking yourself. Most teenagers miss meals, for all sorts of reasons.

But diet is important, and sometimes cooking can be interesting and sociable.
Advice
If you have problems here, you may want to try:
Deciding to eat fast food, only so many days a week
Cutting out snacks, between meals, or if you miss meals
Learning to cook
Finding out about the effects of diet on skin and health (heart, blood pressure, brain)
