Does your occupation impact what you eat?
They say you are what you eat, but is that true?
The old adage "you are what you eat" has been thrown around for decades, but it's worth stopping to think about it and whether there is any truth in it. Not something I had considered, until recently.
It came to my attention while at the gym. I was never much of a gym goer until this year when I decided to get my act together and try to be a bit healthier, not getting any younger and all that! I started to see the same faces over and over again (and I appreciate that makes mine one of those faces) and a pattern started to develop of the kind of people who where there all the time.
I know a lot of those people and they are training to be the kind of people who will be treating peoples' ailments and counselling them on how best to stay healthy and fit. So it makes sense that they would want to follow their own future guidance and keep themselves in good shape.
I appreciate there will be exceptions, we are not all cut from the same cloth, but it got me wondering whether that was their reasoning for being there so often. Or if they'd be there regardless of their occupation and am I just adding two and two together and getting five?
