I was also born in a hospital. I gave birth in a hospital. And after more than 6 decades on the planet I have never been in the hospital otherwise. I also have not been sick with a cold or the flu but once in over 20 years. I am not a vegetarian but I do eat and love vegetables. I try to eat a balanced diet that it includes a variety of foods. That said I think genetics plays a larger part in overall health than diet. I highly advise though that if genetics are not on your side that you adjust your diet according to your own genetics or family health history. 

Yes, about good genes. My wife's grandmother loved her meat...often saved a bite of meat to finish her meal on. She died at 102 with a sharp mind and a fairly sound body. I don't remember her ever being sick.

Fast food and gas stations don't count as eating real food! 

Well, then, in that case, on birding weekends when I don't prepare properly with packed food (most weekends), I'm an occasional starvatarian...(actually vegetarian during the week, and generally only chicken on the weekends if meat is involved).

I’ve watched it a couple times. The only show I really liked was “chopped”. 

I like Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Birders have to eat and the show features different restaurants all over the country. Some times my husband and will look for restaurants featured on the show to incorporate into our birding adventures. For example when we chased the Gray-tailed Tattler we ate at a restaurant featured on Triple-D in the Florida Keys. 

Not featured on the show but related in Colorado we had several places we would stop and eat either before, during or after birding. Example: In Morgan County, CO there was a restaurant attached to a gas station that had the absolute BEST handheld breakfast burrito probably on the planet. We would camp at Jackson Lake State Park but bird other areas within an hour or so of our camping spot and there in between were these handheld burritos. Another place not too far from Barr Lake State Park in Colorado had great cinnamon rolls that were big enough we shared one. We haven't really found too much like that here in Florida yet though there is one seafood place we go to once in while where we can look out the windows and sometimes see dolphins escorting ships out of the river and into the Atlantic. The food is pretty good.

We don't eat out much at all, like once or twice a month, we take food with us or eat at home.
