“I run because I really like food”

"I run because I really like food/beer/chocolate/cookies/dessert/wine” has been printed on many T-shirts. The idea is that running burns off the calories of the food consumed.

“I run because I really like meat and beer” was cited in print in 2008. “I run because I really like food” became a popular version of the saying in 2014.

Why I Run (and You Should Too)
(...)
8. I run because I really like meat and beer.
Let’s be honest, these items can take quite a toll on your waistline if you’re not careful . . . but there’s something about running 20 miles that makes you feel pretty darn justified in consuming a big, juicy burger and a cold, draft beer (and yes, that may have just been a reference to Jimmy Buffett).

Like this research but know I use the information in reverse.

“Honestly, I run because I really like to eat! Running burns a lot of calories,” said Rodriguez with a smile. One of her regular running routes is from Warsaw High School to Kmart and back. “I love to eat and cook. That’s why I keep it up – to be healthy.”
