do you belive that most people who are into fitness and/or healthy eating and exercises are viewed as shallow?
From personal experience i get comments about the way i eat or the amount of exercises I do. Those comments normally are in the nature " are you getting you bikinibody ready?", or some sort of comment/question that implies the only reason that i work out is to look a certain way. People even ask me why i eat healthy, like its not common sense to not eat junk food lol
Since non of my friends, like ever, have or is interested in working out and eating healthy I only have my own experiences to use as an example. It seems to be hard for people (that i assume dont work out) to belive that people can work out and eat healthy because they like it.
I really enjoy the feeling of getting faster, or stronger or felling that my endurance increasing. Cooking is something i also really enjoy, and i love making healthy homemade foods for myself and friends. Junk food or processed foods just doesn't taste good to me. I dont exclude anything (that i like) from my diet, i just make an effort not to eat things like chocolate or restaurant pizza on a regular basis.
Some people absolutly do it most, if not only, for how it makes them look, but not everyone who us above average fit does it because they want a six-pack or a firm butt.
Whats your view on this?

Are they VIEWED as shallow? Yes.
Are they all shallow? Not at all, but they do tend to want a partner with a similar love for fitness as them, and many will consider this shallow, because if you don't think fat is beautiful, then apparently, you're shallow.4

Here's the way I see it: taking care of your body is important because it carries your brain around. Your brain is you. You can't be brilliant or funny or charming or anything else if your body is falling apart.
However, if all you do is work out, then you can't take care of your brain. You're not going to be spending time learning new things or meeting new people if all you ever do is go to the gym for three hours a night. If all you ever talk about is your fitness and how you can only eat certain foods, you're not going to be a very interesting person. You might even come off as vain because you have nothing else to talk about but yourself. There's more to life than just exercise and fitness.
I think it's all about balance. You need to take care of your body and I will encourage anyone who wants to do so. You also need to take care of your brain.0
