We should eat to liveOur body can't produce in itself all the energy requirements to continue to live. So, we have to supplement the body by eating food so that we will get the required energy to continue our living. Our eating should have a purpose and we should eat what is needed for the body. We should eat for necessary nourishment. If we avoid eating for a long duration we will become weak and we can't participate in any activity and we will get sick. So eating is essential.
But from the time we wake up in the morning till the minute we sleep to go on thinking about food, eating food and go on searching for the food we like and wasting a lot of time on planning for food is not correct. Some people will get upset if the food they wanted is not available and they behave as if they have lost everything in their lives.
We have many other things to do in this life. Instead of finding pleasure in eating, we should find pleasure in doing much more purposeful activities like helping the poor, educating the people and helping old people etc. so that we will feel that we have achieved something in our lives. We all should remember the famous quote coined by Jack LaLanne, "eat to live, don't live to eat"
