To overeat is as great as the evil to starve

To overeat is as great as the evil to starve

Food is made to maintain human life. Moderate eating and drinking is the best way to keep our body strong and healthy whereas immoderate eating and drinking habits and malnutrition are both harmful to our health. Therefore it is often said “To overeat is as great as the evil to starve”.

Overeating is detrimental to our health. Fancy a man who was invited to a party of his relative’s wedding. The party was sumptuous, abundant in exquisite food. Being tempted by the lavish feast, within hours, he ate and drank his fill but as soon as he left the party he felt nauseated. His stomach was stuffed with rich food and he got violent indigestion.

In fact, when we eat and drink too much, our stomach is so overloaded with food that it can hardly function. Blood circulates slowly in blood-vessels, causing bradycardia which makes us feel hard to breathe. Our mind is in a state of dullness. The people who are avid of food and drink are lazy and good-for-nothing persons. Their mind becomes dull and inactive. It is said that if you eat a spare meal you will learn best. Profound scholars and talented scientists are well-known for their brilliant mind and their broad forehead, not for their big bellies or their obesity.

Insufficient food is also hazardous to our health. In a country where famine dominates all year round, its people cannot do anything. Malnutrition which makes people’s bodies bonier and skinnier is the cause of all diseases. How can workers and office employees perform their work while their stomachs are empty of food and their whole bodies are succumbed to starvation? Malnutrition leads to crimes such as: theft, robbery and deceitfulness. Our forefathers often said that without food we cannot sustain the doctrine. Our government therefore tries their best to prevent starvation among people so that social laws and orders can be maintained.

In brief, we should bear the following sentence in mind: “We eat to live and not live to eat” and always try to be moderate in eating and drinking and endeavor to save money for a rainy day in order to avoid the state of insufficiency of food which ruins our body, our mind and our health.
