“Please leave the nutritionist at home.” This has been said to me a number of times over the years.
I mean, come on, let’s not ruin a good party by being too healthy.
It’s a common social idea that healthy and fun can’t go together in the same sentence. We say things like “Let’s be evil and eat cheesecake” and “I was naughty last night and drank lots of wine”. Party, fun, alcohol, sugar. Party, fun, water, vegetables. Hmmmm….
It’s also becoming more common, however, that people are obsessed with healthy eating that God forbid a piece of cake pass through their lips. They scrutinise every nutrition information panel for sugar and even truly healthy foods get removed from the diet for fear that their consumption might end in peril. This unhealthy obsession even has a name, it’s called orthorexia.
