Chicken / Egg? Fitness or Junk Food?
What feeds the other in Hoboken? Fitness or Junk Food?
A couple things in Hoboken have been growing at similar paces – gyms and recreational (unhealthy) “junk food” eating places. That got me thinking of the Chicken & the Egg theory. Which came first, and more importantly do they feed off each other? Keep each other in business?
Which benefits more from the other? Fitness or Junk Food?
- Does someone who “devilishly indulges” in a waffle or ice cream (say from the upcoming Caffe Bene) then feel guilt and go to (or join) the gym? Or a fitness class like Zumba or Barre? Or is it…
- People who “work out hard” (say at the new Brazen Athletics) feel they have a “budget” of “cheating” calories they can shovel into their mouths?
Or is it a combination of both? Either way – maybe both “justifications” are wrong. Just eliminate the sugary and starchy junk – and you won’t need either. Then you can use your free time more productively!
