Man is what he eats.

Apparently either coined or popularized by Ludwig Feuerbach1, this German saying is like the English, "You are what you eat", but arguably more poetic. The ist "is" and ißt "eats" are pronounced exactly the same, so spoken aloud, the phrase can be heard as:

  • Man is what he eats.
  • Man is what he is.
  • Man eats what he eats.
  • Man eats what he is.
