Sticking to your healthy habits can be hard, so it doesn’t help when you get that side eye from your friends for not partaking in the nacho appetizer they ordered for the table. Although we may employ self-control with the foods we choose to eat, sometimes it’s just downright impossible to keep our mouths shut when it comes to dumb comments. Here are some of our least favorites.
“Dessert’s not gonna kill you!”
Wait, really it isn’t? I’ve been thinking this whole time it would!
“Don’t you get tired of eating so well?”
Yes, I would love to stuff my face with pizza and fancy doughnuts, but eating healthy actually makes me feel good.
“Eating healthy is too expensive.”
Your pizza cost about the same as my honey mustard chicken, so your point is invalid. And my dinner probably tasted better. SO.
“I work out all the time so I don’t have to eat healthily.”
Being healthy is 30 percent exercise and 70 percent clean eating, so let’s just stop the conversation here.
“Ugh, I can’t imagine just eating salads all the time.”
We DON’T only eat salads. End of story. (But they are pretty great).
“Are you on a diet or something?”
No, it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change. But if I was on a diet, it wouldn’t be any of your business anyway.
“Why are you barely eating?”
Just because I’m not eating a burger and fries doesn’t mean I’m not eating.
“You always get the rabbit food.”
No, just no. Rabbits don’t eat smoothies. Rabbits don’t eat whole grain pasta. Rabbits don’t eat dark chocolate. Just shh.
