Sure, I eat to exist. We all do, but after seeing a recent photo of what appears to be an Ethiopian woman and a young boy, both literally skin and bones, I realize that I DO NOT EAT FOR EXISTENCE — THEY ARE.
I am SO far from being close to needing to eat for existence that it is crazy. I mean if I really think about it, for my height, I’m guess maybe 90 pounds would be critical zone. I would have to lose 2 1/2 – 90 pound people first before even being in a critical position.
So, maybe I need to adjust this one to: I eat to keep from being hungry. Well…I eat to prevent hunger and not as a result of hunger because most of the time when I eat, I am not hungry…yet.
Hmmm, so what does that mean? I guess someone could say that’s the way we are supposed to eat so the body functions correctly. That’s what I’m going for. 🙂
