Eaten Away

Eating nothing is never better than eating something. When given the chance to eat something that could possibly make you gain a little bit of weight, it is always better to eat it rather than not eating anything at all. The choice you make in not eating anything is a harsh one and one that has extreme consequences. These consequences are not just something that physically show, but they also have a mental reaction that is just as bad as the physical. Sometimes, “not eating” is used as a way to punish yourself for gaining a few pounds of weight or maybe for just not liking yourself because you’ve compared yourself to other people and their weights. Ultimately, the fact that others have a certain “skinny” weights that everyone wants is something that that should be handled carefully. Remember that everyone was created in a certain way and that you should never try to become a mirror image of someone else.
