i totally agree. it really annoys me that in order to not be an outcast in society, you have to have unhealthy habits. and i'm not just talking about with food, i'm talking about things like social media and sleeping and stuff. if you don't spend much time on your phone, if you go to bed fairly early every night, and if you eat nourishing whole foods, you're labeled as weird or a loser. shit pisses me off. i fucking hate the feeling of being a lonely pathetic outcast and i just want friends. but i also hate the feeling after eating large unhealthy meals, and the feeling of only getting 3 hours of sleep, and the feeling of spending 4 hours in a row on my phone. society is getting pretty fucked.

I completely understand bc I’m from the south as well. Surrounded by so much yummy but horrifying to imagine to put in my body. I mean come on who doesn’t like real southern sweet tea & not gross unsweetened, pass the water🤦‍♀️ Now with this C Virus u can’t get anything remotely safe to eat. Have y’all found anything or any ideas for groceries. Got toilet paper 😉. Much love & tia.

Things have just become so out of hand. Some places are overall healthier than others but right now I am stuck in the south. The "thin" person is most likely the odd one out and is made fun of and shamed for caring about not eating high caloric garbage processed food. No one even tries anymore to care about health. They unashamedly joke about their overweight and obese bodies and their eating habits.

I live in the south too! Yes, what's seen as "normal" here is overweight. What's seen as "a bit chubby" is obese. It's so accepted, so normalized, that seeing actually healthy proportionate bodies out and about in daily life is few and far between. Portion sizes are big enough to feed four rather than one and the limitless sugary drinks aren't helping anyone either. It's completely absurd.

 

I know the body obsessions in countries like Korea and Japan aren't healthy either, but I honestly believe the health of the country over all is better as a result of their praise towards thin bodies.

I work at a grocery and you'd be surprised the shit that people buy every week; even most of the thinner people get soda and several high cal/sugar/fat foods. From what I've seen, only like 1 out of 5 people actually buy fresh fruit/vegetables weekly.

I honestly kinda enjoy it because I know most of the shit I get for eating healthy is others projecting their insecurities on me. I just walk around feeling superior to the haters with my yummy healthy food lol.

I don’t judge others for what they eat tho. I let people eat what they wanna eat without judgement as long as they don’t judge me for eating what I wanna eat.

I totally agree. I don't know how some people can eat so much knowing there are millions living on less than a dollar a day. Also, the amount of money society loses to provide healthcare for those who are obese and develop heart conditions is outrageous.

We have an abundance of calorie dense foods designed by scientists and extremely market tested for flavor. These calorie dense foods are everywhere! Not just fast food stops but in impulse buy areas at non-food stores.

We all deserve permission to eat nourishing healthy foods and treats but it’s also key to remember that massive global corporations aren’t selling an addictive product are acting in our best interests. That’s the line where I really disagree with the HAES/Intuitive Eating mindset. It’s one thing to deny yourself a slice of homemade pie with loved ones baked from grandma’s special recipe because you’re afraid of calories, it’s another thing to grab the king size snicker after a Starbucks milkshake drink every single day because of an uncritical “treat yourself!” mindset.

I think a lot of people have been brainwashed into the "treat yo self" mentality by the same people that put the addictive and harmful cheap additives into the food. Celebrating obesity, saying that "everything's going to give us cancer so why bother caring", vanity sizing, picking on thin people or health conscious people. It all seems like a way for people to placate themselves because they know what they're doing is wrong, and unhealthy, and unsustainable for themselves and their environment, and that they can change so much more easily than they think, and anyone that does change or do better breaks their personally delusion

Its sad when the people you love are the ones who are judging you. I totally get how out of place it is to order something healthy and how they think its so strange :/ Garbage food is all around and it is easier for people to give in and embrace it than to take time to think about the long term effects of eating something. Maybe slowly they will see that it is good for you to eat the healthy option and might ask you for advice down the road <3

Yeah can totally relate and it hurts af. For my hubby healthy food is rabbit food. And even worse for him an apple, banana, yogurt or salad has zero cal. There is no discussion for him. And if I eat or order that, he tells me I ate nothing and force feeds me something else later. It's a shame

 Sometimes I find myself feeling weird for going out of my way to make sure I have healthy food around. 

I am constantly awestruck at the fact that people have absolutely no thought about the calorie content of any of their food.

I know that people would consider me the one with the mental problem here, but really???

It is more socially acceptable to scarf down an entire pizza to yourself than it is to eat an apple for lunch. 

I get more grief for bringing a salad from home than anyone else does for eating a large certainly exceeding 1500 calorie+ fast food lunch every day. 

Some people may say that I am on the opposite end of the extreme but honestly maybe if society was a bit more healthy and valued being at a healthy weight I wouldn't feel the need to be so obsessive about actually eating real foods. 

Does anyone else feel the same way? Like sure maybe having such a low BMI is a bit too much but when the people around you are at a BMI of 45+ nobody thinks its strange or even something appropriate to comment on. 

biiiiiitch I feel ya so hard

 

I live in South Louisiana so food is such a big part of the culture that "anorexic" is still very socially acceptable to use as an adjective, if ya know what I mean.

I'm sorry but I don't need deep fried boudin more than once a month (more like once a year, if even actually)

i 100% agree. im not exactly a full on orthorexic, but i hate eating fatty junk food everyday. maybe a few chips every week but it honestly disgusts me.

people who restrict and binge and purge are at least worried about themselves, worried about their weight enough to do something about it. 

 

but people these days can eat 100 grams of sugar and 800 calories of junk food a day! and they dont care. its disgusting how they can do that. open your eyes, eating like that will make you hate yourself and just points your life in a dark direction. theyre going to die sooner than they should

Omg yes i thought i was the only person! I try and bring this up as a genuine discussion and it gets shot down because im anorexic...
My dad is Indian, in their culture food = love , so if you dont enjoy or take his food it makes him angry and really, really upset.
Its really annoying because not only is his food really oily and unhealthy, but he serves HUGE portions, which are apparently normal, and expects us to eat it all and then take seconds to.
Honeslty the value he places on food is ridiculous, every meal time used to be a whole ceremony, all conversation about the food, all praise about how ‘good’ it is.

I’m reminded of the hate Jillian Michaels got for noting that society shouldn’t celebrate morbid obesity when they praise Lizzo, they should celebrate her music instead. She got so much criticism and harsh commentary from the press and the public. Now Michaels probably could’ve done a better job communicating her ideas, but the basic critique was that morbid obesity (mind you, not simply being overweight) has negative health consequences, and we shouldn’t praise someone for having health issues. Granted Lizzo can go on long tours and dance with great endurance, but that’s not going to last forever. Sumo wrestlers are great athletes but live short lives. I’m concerned that body positivity is morphing into an “eat all you can and what you want” mentality. It’s a pet peeve of mine tbh.

To be fair, I think at least part of the hate was not directed towards what she said but the fact that SHE said it as she is known for her insane workouts and horrible treatment of obese ppl.
I totally agree with what she said but from the viewpoint of the haes movement she just made things worse

Listen, I'm not shitting on people who love themselves, if you hate your body you aren't likely to do anything to improve it.  Body positivity isn't my issue.  However, 'healthy at any size' tends to glorify having a body that is not healthy and often overweight or obese.  You can be positive about yourself and improve your body/health at the same time.
