LITERATURE REVIEW 2 Literature Review The authors in this literature review express different opinions about sensible eating. One of them thinks that restaurant’ meals regularly exceed the portion size recommendations. Another huge factor why individuals do not eat sensible is because they think eating healthy is expensive. One of the authors thinks that there is a misunderstanding on what healthy products are to eat healthy. Others say that the use of high fructose corn syrup is stopping people from a healthy diet, and most people believe that whole grains are healthiest. The literature seems to identify five major issues that prevent healthy eating: cost, time, psychological state, marketing, and lack of knowledge. One of the obstacles to sensible eating identified by all six sources is cost. Unfortunately, “money” is a major deterrent when it comes to eating sensibly. Unhealthy foods tend to be less costly and more accessible at most stores. According to Haws, Reczek and Sample (2017), “Consumers rely on the lay theory that healthy = expensive when specific information is either missing or lacking details” ( p. 1003 ). Concurring with Gabriela, Mihaela, Anamaria, Cornelia, and Nicoleta (2018), “Junk food is often cheaper than other food products that are sold in the market” (p. 36). However, Wise (2017), states that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) “is really cheap, which is why you see it in everything from sodas to bread, ice creams, sorbets, sugary syrups, and frozen pops” (“What Is Corn Syrup?”).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
