Loool.. Eating is helping me to achieve my goal, and not the goal itself! I think there are more another beautiful goals, rather than eating! Obviously, I am eating for live, and not live for eating!

Maaan, I eat to live and I live to eat. Both of them I really enjoy, to eat healthy yes, but sometimes it's almost impossible, when there's nothing good to buy.

Hi vittos Welcome to mylot. It's a good habit to eat healthy food. Keep it up. I do not think that sometime there is nothing good to buy, when you find nothing just buy some fruits, they are always healthy.

I love to eat but I don't think I live to eat. So I guess I eat to live? But I love love love love love food. I just don't see it as the purpose of of me living. I enjoy cooking too but I bake more. I'm the opposite to you because I enjoy eating what made as much if not more than baking. Have a good day.

HI! Ideally one should eat as less as possible to sustain himself/herself. However, there are many who love to eat are called Glutton. They just enjoy eating and live for eating. I love eating good food, however, I try not to go for over eating and try to keep the intake the moderate quantities so that I could digest it easily.

Anything that would be cooked and served by you. Jokes apart, I love to have simple food with Chapati, cooked vegetables or a bowl of pulse/lentil, curd and salad. I prefer taking home cooked food.

I am one who loves to eat! I love chocolates and danishes and all stuff that aren't good for me. I am double my body weight. Bad, right? But funny thing is I don't care. I enjoy eating stuff and it is one of the few joys I have in life. I think about food and have for so many years how can I possibly change it now?

It is good to fulfill own desires but we should be in control of our self and when this control disappears than the result must be bad as in your case, your weight. You should control yourself to live healthy. Just give it a try.

Yes, that is the ideal. Being in control is very important. Just give it a try? I do from time to time. Just can't do it for a full lifestyle. I like food too much. Too old to worry about it now.

I prefer eating to live than the other because that would be absurd living to eat. It's like you have eating as your job. Come to think of it, that sounds nice so I guess I'll just have it both ways.

Good. Eating is very essential to live and live to eat is quite abnormal, but there must be some people who love his food so much.

Yep, there are some people I know of who *seems* to live to eat. Everytime, I'll see them browsing on what's there to eat. It doesn't matter if we're in the cafeteria, fast food restaurant, etc.. almost all the things they talk about is food.

Hi,i think obvious we should eat to live. If we just live to eat, then we are really like pigs, right?

I used to base my entire life around food, but I choose not to do this anymore and I have found that I am much healthier because of that decision that I had made. I have lost almost five stones in the past eight months and I am very proud of that, and part of it is thanks to me finally discovering that my entire attitude towards food has changed. You should not see food as a reward, but merely something that your body needs in order to work and to keep you alive. Your life will be better once you make this discovery, as was mine.

Good to know that you come out from your obsession of eating. Eating healthy food is the best way to live life because you can enjoy the life only when you remain healthy.

I adore food. Eating can also be called my hobby. Though I am a picky eater, I admit but I eat a wide range of food. Whether Japanese, Chinese, Italian or any other inspired cuisine I eat. I guess I live to eat but behind it I also eat to live to eat. Get it? :)

It'a really a ridiculous and simple question. No one lives to eat except for some crazy foodies or crazy madmen. There are many meaningful things in our life, eating give us energy to do achieve our goals.
