The charts below show the average percentages in typical meals of three types of nutrients, all of which may be unhealthy if eaten too much. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The chart compares the average percentages of unhealthy nutrients, including sodium, saturated fat and added sugar, in 4 typical meals consumed by American people.
Overall, the majority of sodium and fat are consumed at dinner, while most sugar is eaten in snacks. Lunch also tends to be salty and has a lot of fat while breakfast has the lowest percentages for all three nutrients.
Dinner and lunch have roughly similar, large proportions for both sodium (43% for dinner and 29% for lunch) and saturated fat (37% for dinner and 26% for lunch). The amount of sugar in an average meal for dinner and lunch is much lower at 23% and 19%, respectively.
Turning to breakfast and lunch, which also has comparable percentages, they are both made up of 14% sodium. For saturated fats, snacks contain 21% and breakfast is slightly lower at 16%. In terms of sugar, there is the greatest disparity with 42% of snacks being sugary and just 18% of breakfasts being made up of sugar.
Some people believe that it is best to accept a bad situation, such as an unsatisfactory job or shortage of money. Others argue that it is better to try and improve such situations. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Bad situations such as unsatisfactory job or shortage of money inevitably happens around all of us, and the question is whether we should accept or try to improve them. In this essay, I will discuss both options and point out which is the best.
Of course, when things are fraught with difficulty, it seems better to try and improve such situations. Many people believe that no matter how difficult the situation is, such as unsatisfactory job or shortage of money, we can get out of it by finding another job or asking for a raise. Once the problems are overcome, it would be a sense of ease or success, and furthermore valuable lessons to deal with the similar situations in the future.
However, the pressure of trying to overcome difficult situations can be vulnerable sometimes, and I think it is time to accept. In two examples mentioned above, there would be some ones who have no chance to change the situation. For them, an attempt to change can drain energy or cause stress or event create undesired results, making the situation worse. Of course, I do not agree to accepting for the rest of our life, but when we accept, we rob the situation of some of its undesired effect and start to see how to overcome it if we give it time. Therefore, an acceptance can be seen as a more positive attitude to improve bad situation than a hasty attempt.
In conclusion, although I agree that we should try to improve bad situations, I think that in some cases it would be better to accept. Acceptance does not mean that we do nothing, but it is the best way to deal with the situation.
