If you didn't have to eat, would you?

I know this is impossible, but what if someone magically produced a pill that met all of your nutritional and fluid intake needs for 24 hours? You could take a pill and your body would act normally, except that you wouldn't get hungry or thirsty for a day. You could eat or drink in addition to the pill, but then you'd run the risk of gaining weight. There would be no side effects from the pill and it would meet all of your physical needs perfectly.

You could take a pill one day and eat regularly the next, or mix in any combination, without physical harm.

Would you take the pill or would you prefer to taste and eat your meals? Even if you have to make them? Or would you mix it up with pills some days and meals on others?

Me? I'd live on the pill.

I guess that would evoke the question of eating to live or living to eat. I like to eat. Who would give up taste and the pleasure endorphins from favorite foods for a pill?

Me. Eating often gets in the way of things I have to do. I'd take the pill and just keep going.

Take a pill? And miss out on of my love for tasty home cooked meals. Nope.

some days are too busy to stop doing what you're doing, so I like the thought of the option for those kind of days, but no way can any pill EVER replace chocolate or a great steak
