The environment in which I live is considered to be the cholesterol capital of the world, and is known for its heavy protein and rice consumption. This kind of eating pattern makes it more likely that the population of the region will acquire nutrition-related illnesses. I would like to avoid this serious disease due to the fact that if I were to acquire it, I would be affected by health problems throughout my life.

I believe that I am on the right track to avoid the challenge of acquiring diabetes, and I am also able to avoid many other serious illnesses which older people face, due to my new nutrition and exercise plan.
