I care about food because I care about my health. I had stomach problems in the past because I ate too much junk. I stopped eating junk and now keep track of what I have eaten and make plans on what I will eat today, tomorrow, and after tomorrow. My parents think I'm going too far but I just wanna do everything I can to avoid stomach problems in the future. It has been working great.
Yes, I do. I think food is one of the best things in the world! It's one of my biggest pleasures. And I love the feeling that I get when I eat my favorite food. So, I don't see it as just something I do to keep myself alive.
