Topic: Diet and health
What foods are most nutritious? What foods are not very nutritious?
Most dieticians agree that foods that are high in fat, salt, and sugar are not beneficial to health. These included fast food, junk food, and snacks. [Crack IELTS with Rob] The trouble is that these foods are appetizing, so it is difficult to cut down on them. On the other hand, vegetables, fruits, and fresh meat are suggested to eat with a greater amount. However, unfortunately, they usually cost an arm and a leg. So it is difficult for the poor to afford it.
Are there many vegetarians in your country?

[Crack IELTS with Rob] However, it is possible to find some vegetarian restaurants in some metropolitan cities.
Do you think advertising has an effect on what foods people eat?
Yes, advertising exerts significant impacts on eating behavior of consumers. Adverts contain eye-catching images and sometimes misleading information to attract audience’s attention. Therefore, consumers cannot resist consuming these products.
Do you think that junk food should be banned?
From my own perspective, I suppose, no, although junk food is detrimental to heath, banning it entirely would be a huge overreaction because it violates the right of humans. [Crack IELTS with Rob] Many people eat them in moderation, so it does not significantly affect their health. However, regulatory body should limit the advertising of these products.

There are several criteria that should be considered when we rank a restaurant. [Crack IELTS with Rob] First, impeccable service is a must. If diners have to wait for ages, it’s very annoying. Furthermore, the staff must be hospitable, supportive, and knowledgeable to suggest which exotic foods are on offer. Last but not least, the atmosphere should be convivial to make diners feel at home.
