Live to Eat – or Eat to Live

Live to Eat – or Eat to Live

When it comes to food, there are two kinds of people; those who live to eat and those who eat to live. In this article, we are going to discuss the differences and similarities between the two kinds of people, as well as remove any stereotypical phrases you may or may not have heard. Here we go!


People who Live to Eat

The people who live to eat are the ones who can’t get enough of food. These people will jump at the chance to eat no matter what time it is. You can wake these people up at 2am and they will forgive you, so long as you have good food for them. Don’t get me wrong; these people will not just eat anything. The food you give them has to be good or else they won’t want it. They are not so concerned with what is healthy and what is not; if it tastes good, they’ll eat it!


Stereotypes Debunked!

Now, I am sure a large number of you, when you read the above section of this article, immediately thought about fat or obese people. While this is true of some of these people, it is not the case with them all! There are plenty of people out there who eat five, six, even seven meals a day and still remain fit and healthy! You would be surprised how much someone like Dwayne Johnson eats! He can eat far more than the average overweight person, but he keeps himself fit through exercise. There are many others like this who live to eat, but also take care of themselves!

People who Eat to Live

These people will almost never been seen eating outside of their regular schedule. They will probably have set times during the day for their breakfast, lunch, dinner, and mid-morning/afternoon snacks. These people tend to follow specialized diets and keep track of what they are eating in order to stay healthy. Many people in the world today are capable of doing these things; sadly, I am not one of them!

More Stereotypes Debunked!

Again, with this section, you may have been thinking of all those ultra-thin celebrities out there, right? (Or maybe you forced yourself not to because you saw this coming? Smart one, aren’t you?) People who eat to live are not stick thin! Would you like to know why? It’s because people who eat to live are eating the correct dietary requirements for someone of their height and body structure. This means that they end up looking healthy and physically fit. There’s a twist though! There was actually a third group that was not previously mentioned; people who don’t eat in order to look ‘good’. These people are the ones you may have initially thought of; the ones who starve themselves deliberately so that they can be as thin as possible. This is terrible for your health and is not advisable by any means! There’s nothing wrong with dieting, but a diet never means long term starvation of the body. So long as you are giving your body the nutrients it needs to get through the day without also ingesting all the various fats and carbs that cause weight gain, you will find your healthy body type. It doesn’t need to be stick-thin; as long as you’re healthy then you look absolutely perfect!
