Well what I would like to know, is if this was true then what food would you be? At the moment I would be tomato soup and potato chips(crisps)because at the moment this is all I seem to eat! So what about you? You are what you eat, so what would you be?

That doesnt bear thinking about !!....if i am what i eat...lol..then I look like a Cadbury`s chocolate bar!!.....they always used to say this though.... I truly believe a good diet is beneficial....but I start each day with the best of intentions...only to have munched sometihng extra naughty by around 11 o clock.. When I was a little bit younger lol..I used to be able to resist more easily...but alas now....the will power is weak....

I have heard that sometimes and I believe it does not mean literally. It has some life's application and it might be good to make a research on that one. It's a nice discussion!

I think I would be a cheese toastie with beans as that is what I always fall back on when I can't think of what I want - either that or toast! The beans I must add come from the company with 57 varieties or they are not as good! xxx

This is mah Cheetos! - Flaming hot cheetos...they sure don't lie!
Well if you are talking about the last thing we ate. At the moment I'd be Hot Cheetos and Mountain Dew. If generally, I'd probably look like like a big chili pepper cause I'm on a total spicy food kick lately. I need to go back to having more of my dairy products cause I actually find it starting to affect my tummy a bit!

Well, if that were the case, today I would be Taco Bell! lol. I had a bean burrito, a soft taco, and one of those new bacon chalupas. Oh it was so yummy! Yeah, I know, it's a lot of food, but well, it was all I ate all day and I was starving!

well because of all the rolls of fat that I have, I would be a big mocha cake. You are what you eat means if you eat healthy you are healthy, I don't eat healthy, I eat whatever I can get from the food banks and I am not healthy either.

Yes. I have heard this many times over the years. I believe it too. I think I would be Mexican, LOL. I would be a mixture of, tacos, burritos, nachos, cheese and jalepeno peppers. I would also be a taco salad. That is what I really like to eat right now.

Butter on a stick. I absolutely love butter, not margarine, but butter. Its a wonder I don't weigh more than I do with the amount I eat. So everyone always teases me that if if there wasn't toast and I could eat butter on a stick, I would.
