"At the age of 20 usually is movingyou do not have children or as many responsibilities as it is after. There is time for training and we meet friends because everyone is in it. On the other hand, lower purchasing power is more sensitive to spending. If you want sushi at the age of 23 and you probably can not pay when you're 30, "he said. CONVICTION Facundo Crescenzo, dietitian and anthropometer (M.N. 6769).
In this decade, the couple are not so habitually shaped or conditions so much accustomed. However, Crescenzo warns that one of the less healthy habits of this stage is alcohol consumption. "At the age of twenty, physical activity loses more weight and maybe even the disorder of life he planned. One lives with parents, and food is of better quality, "he added.
Usually, this decade usually lives alone, which makes the menu more dictate the need or desire than father's imposition and may be imbalanced or less healthy behaviors. "You're starting to have children and these years instead of training, you go to look for boys or you have a couple who carry some things that they do not usually go to the gym, "said the dietician.

Just as it is not good in childhood or adolescence, although it depends on everyone and always after consulting a professional – he said.
In this sense, he warned that during adolescence one should be careful of "magical and miraculous diets" because it can be caused by a disorder of dormant eating behaviors such as anorexia or bulimia.
