Food. I live to eat it. I love food. It's why I'll probably never be skinny again. There are just too many amazing dishes that I love. It could be Italian, Mexican, Chinese, or American. I can find something I like. So when someone asks me, what is one food that you can't live without, it really is a tough question. If I give up something I like, I can always find more things I like!

First of all, the results of the survey went as follows. Here are the top foods that when asked, American said that simply can't live without.

  1. Mac and Cheese
  2. butter
  3. pizza
  4. milk
  5. bread
  6. bacon
  7. pasta
  8. cheese
  9. hamburgers
  10. peanut butter

Really? That's the best you could do? What about breakfast burritos and steak, and lobster and shrimp! Yes, I have a lot of foods to choose from when it comes to naming one that I couldn't live without. This same survey also revealed something else. We'll go through pain to enjoy our favorite foods.

60% of people say they experience a food 'hangover' because of what they ate the night before. Welcome to my world! I can't eat hardly any of my favorite foods without going through some sort of pain. Eat tons of shrimp...I get gout. Eat taco pizza...get gassy and blow up like a balloon. How is this fair?

There is one food though, that never lets me down. I've been eating it since I was a kid. I grew up on beef cattle farm after all. The food I can't live without is steak. Give me a nice center cut filet, cooked medium to medium well, and lightly seasoned. It doesn't get any better than that!
