It’s Eat or Be Eaten

I’m sure many of us have heard the saying “It’s Eat or Be Eaten” in the animal world. Well, how much of this phrase really is true and could it be applied to everyday life? Speaking as someone who has been there and survived it, I can attest to this being very true. Of course seeing a new and skinny you is something many women strive for, but is it really worth the consequences? You’re body may be great, but without eating, starvation sets in and destroys your body. Your organs turn on themselves and literally try to eat themselves just gain the nutrients they need to help keep you alive. Pretty disgusting huh? Well I guess the phrase really is true. Think about that the next time you look in the mirror and try to imagine yourself skinny or maybe before you tell yourself you can stand to skip one meal.
