What's the stereotype of the chef?

In the traditional view of the chef sees obese man who had difficulty walking to the kitchen. However, this idea can be confidently called obsolete. This chef has to be in shape and look much better than in other occupations. This is for many reasons. First of all, overweight indicates serious health problems. Perhaps people with overweight with diabetes or has disease of the endocrine system. In any case, not every employer wants to cooperate with an unhealthy worker. Cook, being a specialist in the field of healthy eating can not be overweight. Obesity is the chef points out that he does not know the basic rules of healthy cooking even to himself. Why, in that case, he will be able to properly feed their clients? Kitchen workers can not be overweight and for another reason. Extra pounds impede movement, make a person uncomfortable and sluggishness. Being a long time in a high temperature, as is the kitchen, the chef overweight runs the risk of heart attack or stroke. Obesity will prevent him from working. Malo, who asks: why the chef is so much to eat? For many, it is quite natural.
