When Did Eating Become Optional?

When did eating become optional?

As a member of the health and fitness industry I hear this all the time, "I'm too busy to eat". What I would like to know is when did it become an option, because to me, this seems as ridiculous as saying I was too busy to breathe. You need to do both to live, right?

So why is it okay not to eat? I'm not going to get into what you need to eat, or even when you need to eat it, to me it's just important that you eat. Yes, food tastes good, but it's more than that, we need food to fuel our bodies. Think of your body like a car, you need to put gas in the car otherwise eventually you're going to be running on empty. And, guess what that means, that means that no matter how busy you think you are, you're going nowhere until you fill the tank. It's simple, you need to eat to live.

So please, stop telling me that you're too busy to eat. You need to make time for what's important and as far I'm concerned something that's as necessary as breathing deserves the time.
