You are what you eat. I have heard this phrase an awful lot in my 28 years of life. I have been thinking “Am I really what I eat” for a few days now…not sure why. I know people will have their on opinions but in my opinion I don’t care for it. “You are what you eat” reminds me of people saying “Your a diabetic because you eat a lot of sugar.” Not true at all.
If I eat 10 pizza’s a day for life doesn’t mean I am going to be overweight. I have seen a lot of people who consume a lot of food and never gain weight. I have seen overweight people consume little or no food, still gain weight and as a matter of fact some people who are overweight are a lot healthier than skinny people. I believe little to no activity causes weight gain. Health issues can cause weight gain. I do believe genetic’s play a huge part in weight gain.
“You are what you eat?” NOPE. My new saying…What you consume may or may not be bad for your health. Who knows??? I can tell you this “You can eat all the sugar in the world, could be at risk for diabetes but you may never get it.”
lol, I still don’t know why I blogged about this….:)
