Although most of us fall somewhere in the middle, do you more often eat to live or live to eat?

When someone says”it doesn’t taste that bad” I say eat something that tastes good to great. What’s the point if you are going to consume calories anyway.

I love food too much to just eat to live

When you've got a bunch of food allergies, you eat to live. Though I do enjoy trying to make it as yummy as possible.

I’ve got a friend who’s allergic to almost everything but fish. I feel so bad for her.

While I enjoy a really good meal, I really eat to live more often than not.

There’s really not a lot of food I look forward to daily other than breakfast.

Usually, I eat to live. It’s not something I’ve ever enjoyed much, and I’d much rather just take a pill or something. Don’t get me wrong, I love some good food. It’s just not every night.

A little over a year. Just stopping back and see what’s going on.

Holy cow! Where have you been? Seems like more than a year. Still living on carrot sticks?

It may have been a bit longer. I’m good, just had to get away from the drama. I eat pretty much whatever I want but try to keep it healthy. But carrots are good too. 🙂

Well don’t stay away. I never thought I’d see you again. However the drama is worse than ever.

Eating to live is one of the secrets of my success. When I stopped caring so much about taste and focused on a diet that would actually help keep me healthy, everything else got a lot easier.

Eating is one of life's fundamental pleasures.

Most of the time I eat to live. Sometimes I live to eat. Not often though. I try to eat Whole Foods.

Creating things in the kitchen is a stress reliever for me. I love to cook! I guess I live to eat (and walk it off).

Couldn’t agree more, I consider cooking my therapy.

I eat a lot more than I need to survive, so it tips to the side of living to eat (although except for donuts, cookies, pies, cake, candy, and ice cream, I don't really live to eat either).

I unfortunately “eat to live”. Most of the time I don’t care if I eat or not.

I definitely lean more toward “live to eat.” Food is much more than a means of staying alive, to me. But part of that is enjoying really healthful food that tastes great.

A little of both. I go out of my way to make nice food with inexpensive ingredients. Today I took a free turkey breast, remove the skin, debone, butterflied. Made a herb butter stuffing, wrapped in it’s skin, tied and roasted to 157° (rest will go to 160-165°. Basted every 15 min.
Wife made shredded carrots, cranberry sauce, mash potatoes, yams, string beans.
We enjoyed a Friendsgiving together.
Tomorrow will be hot dogs.

I feel like I eat to live during the week but live to eat during the weekend. 😃
