The fact of life is we need food to live but can survive without food for a few days. Your quality of life is dependent on what you eat and what you don't.
Think about it, those who suffer from anorexia live a painful life and eventually die before their time. Likewise, those who eat uncontrollably also suffer from it - living a painful life. The unfortunate thing about both situations is that you are not the only one who suffers. Let me put it this way: You choose your quality of life as you choose what you eat.
You may say it doesn't matter...well it does a lot -especially with unhealthy food choices.
I found 2 quotes that resonated with me:
If we're not willing to settle for junk living, we certainly shouldn't settle for junk food.
In order to change we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired. ~Author Unknown
The choice is still yours.
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin put it aptly: "Tell me what you eat, I'll tell you who you are"
...and possibly what your children will become...
