    Default Eat to live or live to eat? Which one are you?

    So...

    I was shopping yesterday and realised I am firmly in the eat to live camp. I hate food shopping. I hate cooking and food preparation. I don't really like going to fancy restaurants and would never pay a lot of money for food because I just don't really appreciate it that much. If someone invented a pill that satisfied hunger and all your nutritional needs I would happily take it. Oh and I'm not interested in cooking shows, magazines etc they bore me to tears.

    But I know others are different! My sister loves food, is an amazing cook and goes to such trouble with market shopping, delicious fresh ingredients etc. I don't mean she is a glutton or anything, she is a lot healthier than me because she goes to so much effort.

    So which camp do you fall in?

    edited to add - sorry if this is in the wrong area, I probably should have put it in general chat...

    Live to eat here! I love food. I love cooking it, eating it, going out for meals. But I also live by the eat to live motto too where I try and eat good, whole, healthy foods and only treat myself every so often.

    Live to eat. Not so good for weight loss but luckily I enjoy cooking and eating healthy food most of the time.

    Yes, I would happily get take away every night if my waist allowed...
    Why can't I be a celebrity and have a personal chef!

    Live to eat!!

    I Love cooking.
    I Love eating
    I Love baking
    I Love trying to cook different things.
    I Love feeding people.

    To me it has an emotional connection. By feeding people I feel I am nurturing in some way.

    Yes, not always good for weight loss, but we eat very little packaged food, and have a pretty well rounded diet.
    Except for chocolate.

    Live to eat. I love food! Eating out is one of my favourite things to do. I do get sick of cooking when it's the day to day family meals, but I enjoy making something new when I have time.

    However, at the moment I have little interest in food due to morning sickness that lasts 24/7.

    Little bit of both.

    I love food. Especially fresh food. It smells SO amazing and delicious. But I only really eat because I need to. I can spend hours in the kitchen pouring over a three course banquet of deliciousness and maybe eat a little bit. I'm happy to make my housemates anything their little hearts desire for dinner and be content with a mug of tomato soup for myself. I make myself food because I require nutrients and so I make sure it tastes good as is as healthy as I can make it.

    Disclaimer: This is how I USUALLY am. Lately I've been craving bacon so much I've been adding it to everything. So.. I'm just speaking as what's usual for me.
