Would You Want Your Meals in a Pill Form?

Recently, a friend of mine shocked me by saying that if he could, he would eat his meals in the form of a pill instead. For him, the act of eating takes too much time, and is bothersome. Personally I would miss the taste and texture of my favorite foods, and thought he was completely crazy to say such a thing. How about you? What do you think?

I think it would be great for a diet. There's no way you would be tempted to overeat because the food is so delicious! But I lovelovelove eating, so... Only for diets.

I live by my self, and it's just not all that fun spending a lot of time cooking only to sit down alone and finish the meal in 10 minutes. At times like these a pill would be great. When I cook for friends or family though, it's another story. That gives me quite a lot of joy, preparing a delicious meal and sitting down for a long time eating and having a good time.

i am one of the pickiest eaters that i know. trust me, i've tried not to be. when i go to a really amazing, imaginative restaurant i usually end up resorting to a salad because i dont want to order only half of an entree. i wish all the time for some food pill. i mean some stuff is really enjoyable to eat but for ME who recieves little or no pleasure from food, it would be amazing. but i would only take it if it was like natural and organic and stuff. i would NEVER eat some food pill that was made out of futuristic would need to be like a super intense vitamin kinda

I love eating, but when I'm stressed at work I really can't eat much, so this should help.

Sometimes I am SO over food. I would love a pill at those times. But there are some things I could never give up, like guacamole or tacos!

I'd only take them in the morning for breakfast on weekdays. I'm not a morning person, and I can't wake myself up earlier to get a decent breakfast in. I absolutely love to eat, though, and I wouldn't take the pills for lunch or dinner!

This discussion is reminding me of the anime "Galaxy Express 999" in which this robot says that human food is filthy and she prefers taking pills, and then it turns out the pill is made of people. I only vaguely remember, it's been years and years since I last watched this.

Foods pills would be sad. Food is about much more than nutrition; it's about culture and pleasure.

I agree about having food pills around for emergencies. Up here in Minnesota, they'd be a great thing to have in the car during the winter months. But I adore everything about food---preparation, the senses, etc.---and would go batshit crazy if I had to take pills on a daily basis!

It would be good to take with you if you were hiking or camping just in case you got trapped or something.

It's sad that some people said they'd use pills when they are "too busy to eat". That's never happened to me! I am NEVER too busy to eat! What kind of society do we live in where we are "too busy" to nourish our bodies and minds?!

I wouldn't use them every day, but there are times when they might come in handy. I mean, like everyone else here, I love the taste and texture os food ... that's why I eat so much of it! But, sometimes, when I'm super-busy or kind of depressed, I find myself missing meals. Pills would keep me on track.

yes - hands down yes. one of the reasons that i HATE to eat is that i don't like to feel like i have food in my stomach - so a pill would be soo much better

ugh yeah I hate eating, its like every meal is like a failure at least for me, so it'd be great to avoid those daily feelings of failure and instead eat a couple of pills

food pills are a genius idea especially if used in emergencies. if i ever got lost or stranded in the woods and had no food but carried the pills around, it would be a great asset. i wouldn't eat them for everyday use tho. i love the texture and smell of food and i wouldn't sacrifice that pleasure. heck even nawing on rock hard bread is fun. :) lol.

Does anyone remember the episode of the Jetsons where the son runs away and subsists on pill formed food but the dog eats it all? This reminds me of that.
