    Question Factors affecting food selection

    I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this, but here goes...

    Hi, I'm doing a food tech assignment for school where I need to analyse the factors affecting the food choices of fitness enthusiasts. The assignment requires me to survey 20 fitness enthusiasts, so I was wondering if some of you could help me complete this survey. I've posted it on a few other forums, but I haven't quite reached twenty people yet. (The survey is slightly long, but bear with me please.)
    I really really do appreciate your time and your help. Thank you!! :]

    Hi,

    Do your clothes not fit you anymore? Do you now wear sweatpants all of the time? It's easy to gain weight considering the quality and quantity of cafeteria food, late night pizza, late night snacking and beer parties that are readily available. You ought to be able to make healthier food choices and maintain an exercise regimen to shed some weight.

    Regards.
