"You are what you Eat"

Posted by Cassical on August 03, 2000

does anyone know what is the origin of the phrase "you are what you eat"?

I found a reference to another phrase "a man is but what he eats", spoken in 18??, by a german guy. I wasn't able to get the details.

is this phrase the same thing, and what does it actually mean.

email me on [email protected] if you can help.
