Serve Many But They Forget About Me

I serve many, confirmed by how healthy those I serve are. Yet after they’re successful they forget about me. It’s true, sometimes I hit them and they’re often bloody, but they don’t mind.

What am I?

A doctor (more specifically, an obstetrician) or a midwife. They deliver thousands of healthy babies but they are soon forgotten. Sometimes they smack the baby on the butt to clear the airway, and newborn babies can have blood on them from the placenta being pulled from the walls of the uterus or from an episiotomy.

Maybe…. medicine? Most people forget that medicine ever made them better (if they had a minor illness) and they look healthier once they have it.

Hunger in animals. Animals do things based on their instincts and feelings. Without hunger, animals wouldn’t eat, because they can’t reason and thus they don’t know that they can starve to death. In this regard hunger serves them and keeps them healthy. Once an animal is successful in their search for food (having caught prey or found edible vegetation), they eat it and are satisfied, thus they forget about hunger after having achieved success.

fruit and vegetables
most people eat fruit and vegetables each day and food is actuated by servings (I serve many)
people who eat fruit and vegetables are healthy – do i really need to explain? (and you can confirm by looking how healthy they are)
when it is successful (when people don;t eat too much other stuff!) people forget quite quickly about what they eat and why it makes them healthy. (yet after they’re successful they forget about me) – “they’re” is the people who eat fruit and vegetables and benifit

A heart?

A cynical answer true, but many successful people could be said to have no heart. It still serves in their chest literally, but figuratively they have forgotten it.

I like the fruit eating theory, but what about being the fruit tree? It serves many (all the fruit) they ripen and look their best, are picked, and the tree is forgotten.

Not bad eh?

There are multiple answers but for me the best are: doctor, medicine itself, a heart, hunger and old friends.

There could be many answers, but it says some times I hit them and often they bleed, so it should be some sort of exercise equipment. Like dumb bells or a sparing partner. It has to fit all of the clues .
