In a recent poll of more than 1,200 American adults, close to 90 percent said their diet was either "somewhat," "very," or "extremely" healthy.
However, 43 percent of the survey respondents said they drank at least one sugary soda or sweetened drink every day. A third also said they were at a healthy weight when they actually were overweight or obese.
"When they were asked why they didn't eat [the recommended amount of] vegetables, the most common reason given ... was that they thought they consumed enough already. The next most commonly cited reason ... was that they are hard to store ...
Seventeen percent said someone in their household didn't like vegetables, the same number said vegetables take too long to prepare ... and 14 percent said fresh vegetables are too expensive. Thirteen percent said, quite simply, they don't like vegetables."
