Dear food eaters


Do you have this conversation at your home too?

Anders: If there was a pill you could take and be full instead of eating, you would totally take it!

Me: You say it like it's a bad thing. But yes! I would.

  3. Have definitely never had that conversation. However, there are times when stopping to eat really gets in the way of what I'm trying to accomplish, so I would like that pill.

  4. I've been the asker of such a question, but It's quite inconceivable to me to give up food as one of my favorite activities!

  8. sure I like food every now and then, but the constant need for it, several times of day? evolution has taken us nowhere!

    also fully aware of how spoiled this makes me in a starving world. will male payments to several charities right away.

  9. Oh, Emi - I'm so surprised at the comments here! Thought this was a much more common complaint. Yes, yes, food is delicious - but the constant need is oppressive. Over and over coming up with what to make quickly, blah.

    And yes, that may sound privileged, but a food supplement pill could do a ton of good for the under and malnourished of the world. It's hard to believe science hasn't figured this one out already.
