Asking ChatGPT “What Should I Eat?”

If you’re an active user of ChatGPT (or other AI tools), then you’re likely obsessed with efficiency. You’re trying to find ways to automate mindless tasks, jumpstart your inspiration, and ultimately cut hours of work time. But there’s one glaring task we’ve all overlooked that ChatGPT can easily take care of.

What should I eat?

The average person spends 37 minutes a day thinking about what to eat. That comes out to 225 hours per year. We spend 10 days per year thinking about what to eat!

In the video below, Ryan asks ChatGPT this simple question to find out if the tool can actually cut days of food choice paralysis out of his life.
