During the mid twentieth century the Greek Philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach stated that man is what he eats It is true that man eats his own interpretation because whatever one eats is transformed into their own flesh and blood But if we look into the deeper meaning of the saying we would find that Feuerbach was a thoroughgoing materialist who thought that we are just flesh and blood and bones and nothing else So there are two aspects to the saying Physical and Spiritual Physically it implies that if a person wants to be healthy and happy heshe must eat a balanced diet Nutrition plays an important role in our physical being We require vitamins and minerals for healthy skin teeth etc And not getting them in adequate amounts may result in deficiencies and diseases Carbohydrates and fats are required to provide energy to our bodies without which we would not be able perform our daily activities Proteins are also an important part of our diets since they help in the building and repair of cells and tissues of our bodies Therefore for us to be physically healthy we need to eat a well balanced diet consisting of all the nutrients Spiritually the saying shows that Feuerbach believed that religion of any kind is meaningless He didnt think that there was anything beyond the material world no God and no soul But heres what he missed the food that we eat is Gods gift and blessing We are what we eat alright but our eating binds us to our creator through his gifts Food is the seal of Gods love for his people and we are his blessed people
