Default Can my dogs release word be eat?

Reason is I just fed my dog, but I used his food to teach him sit. I used the approximately 24 ft space in our home. I made him sit until I said eat which is when he got out of his sit to go eat. It took me about 40 mins but I was able to gradually increase the distance between us by letting him eat a little bit then removing him from the food to increase the distance. Eventually we were on opposite sides of the house. I thought this was amazing. He works mich harder during feeding time than for his treats. But anyway, could I use eat as his release word?
