Poor Henry.I can agree with the first part of his quotation but it seems eating was the centre of his life.

Ah,Thommy, me boy, you forget the famous food scene in the film adaptation of Fielding's novel, "Tom Jones." See clip from You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tezjznL9NzM

Unfortunately, many people do just that: eat to live and live to eat. This is what their whole life is about.

Poor Henry. I think he did not have much to do except for eating.

Food as a necessity to survive. OK, sounds good and reasonable. But also as a part of social life, a chance to sit at the table with family and friends. And as aphrodisiac as well. Ok, sounds good, too. ;-)

Of course, as everything, food is good in moderation. It goes very well with an article about food addiction in the news section.
