In Jose’s case his individual perception met this criterion and was one of his reasons of following a healthy lifestyle. As mentioned before, Jose has a strong family history of diabetes, hypertension and heart attacks which he knew was linked both by genetics and environmental factors. He plans to continue involving fitness and physical activity in his daily routine as well as a family. Jose states he doesn’t think he could ever become a vegetarian but states that he would like to decrease his red meat intake and increase his poultry consumption due to his family history of heart attacks. He and Lilly do not eat McDonalds but will occasionally buy happy meals for their children but he states they are becoming more and more worried about the preservatives certain fast food restaurants are using. He also mentioned the organic food trend that is becoming more popular and states that if these products are not too over-priced, he will tend to purchase these items. Lilly meal preps with Jose so any changes to his diet will most likely be included in her meals as well. Conclusion Jose and Lilly seem to have a strong family foundation built on mutual respect and trust. The love for their children is the driving force of many of the decisions they make in and outside their home.
