Which one is the correct way of saying?

I am healthy like a fish or as a fish?


I am as healthy as a fish.

(assuming a fish is healthy)

  • That's usually the way such idioms as stated (stubborn as a mule, strong as an ox, hungry as a bear); however, healthy like a fish wouldn't be grammatically incorrect, and it would have pretty much the same meaning (assuming fish are regarded to be healthy in general). – J.R.
