Would you call yourself a "healthy eater"?

Post by lauren on 7/19/2010, 12:18 pm

My definition of "healthy" means eating good food, with fruits/veggies/good stuff and not limiting yourself to absolutley no sweets or anything.
I eat that way most of the time, but I just got back from camp and the food there was terrible, so I've been eating terribly the last few days. I'm just going to let myself go for a week, dude, cuz I'm STARVED FOR REAL, GOOD FOOD.
So, ANSWER THE QUESTION.

Uh.. no. xD Not one bit. I hate pretty much anything but starchy stuff (rice, potatoes, pasta, etc.), white bread, milk, and chocolate. My parents usually have to force me to eat anything else. rolleyes

That's cool, B. I met quite a few vegetarians at camp which was interesting.

Yeah I just ate myself some ice cream too, at 10:45.
Ratty, i LOVE eating baked potatoes with salt, cheese, and a load of BBQ sauce all mashed up. Itsounds and looks gross, but it is delicious. I think I'll eat that for lunch xD which it is now about 11:45 so I'll eat it soonish. <3

I could consider myself a healthy eater, I guess. Razz

Sometimes I have my quirks, where I go on a sugar/junk food rampage (Lol!), but I usually eat fairly healthy. There's a few days where I eat more sweets or sodas than I should, but eh. Razz Lol! I love baked potatoes and rice: those are pretty much my main foods. XD I'm allergic to wheat flour, so it's hard to get grains and the right nutritious foods that your body needs, sometimes. Razz But, it really can help you be healthier: no cake, no cookies, no cupcakes. No bread, pasta, or etc. It really stinks sometimes, but I got used to it and I'm healthier than I used to be.

Have you ever tried rice and shredded cheddar? You should: it's totally amazing. <333

No bread?NO PASTA?! Gosh, I'm sorry Rai Sad
Was it something like where you grew up eating that stuff then all of the sudden you had a reaction? Or was it all your life?

Nope, not really. If we have junk food, which is all the time, I'll opt for that rather than take five minutes to make a sandwich because I am a lazy person!
That or I eat, like, four pieces of toast.
I don't typically drink pop, because all we ever have is Pepsi (which I hate), but I honest to goodness don't remember the last time I had a glass of milk. It's almost always water, which, while it isn't bad for you doesn't really supply any nutrients either.
On top of that I generally end up skipping a meal a day... during school I never have time for breakfast, and over summer I typically pass on lunch. And I haven't been snacking all that much lately either.

Well, you're born with it. It's pretty hard to diagnose and it's genetically transmitted. My mother has it and I wound up getting it, too.

Yeah, I've had it ever since I was born. Razz
I've had symptoms for all my life: sometimes you don't have symptoms, even though you have the disease. But, anyways, it makes you dizzy, queasy, tired, your stomach hurts, and it makes your stomach extremely bloated.

When my mother was undiagnosed, we thought she was pregnant because her stomach would bloat so badly. Not like, 9 months pregnant, but it totally looked like she had a baby bump. XD

I was diagnosed, what, 3 years ago? So it was pretty sudden, but I feel soooo much better. I actually don't miss it that much, because I know how horrible it feels when I ate it. xP

So, I've had the symptoms for all my life, but we just thought I would get sick a good bit. I was also a hu-uge drama queen when I was little, so that didn't help my parents think something was really wrong, either. XD
I don't blame them for not taking me to the doctor until I was older. When I was younger, I fell of my bike and refused to walk for two days until my mother took me to the doctor. The doctor told me nothing was wrong and I walked right out of that hospital. XDDD


So...yeah. Sorry for rambling a little bit. XD

Yes, very.

I don't eat anything with sugar, at all. I eat tons of fruits and vegetables and I'm a vegetarian. Which isn't exactly a trait of all healthy eaters, as eating fish too is actually even healthier, but whatever.

I also never eat junk food and I drink tons of milk! :3

Now if I'm a balanced eater... well, that's another question! ^^;

Wow, Ari! I applaud you *claps*
I guess it's not possible NEVER to eat a bit of junk, have you EVER eaten a piece of junk food? And do you ever crave something sweet? I guess if you did, there's a lot of sweet fruits like watermelon then. If you don't mind my asking

-bows-

Well, for the last year or so I haven't. I started being a health freak about a year and a half ago. Also, a germ freak. I don't know what happened, but I suddenly... I was just healthy. D: Last summer I slipped and had a chocolate chip cookie and I felt HORRIBLE about it. It was too sweet and I felt horribly guilty and I couldn't stand it.
But it's been over a year now since that fateful thing. Razz Sometimes I'm forced to eat things which have a bit of sugar in them. We were in Greece and the only thing we could eat sometimes was white bread, which has sugar in it... so rather than starving to death, I ate that. But I stopped drinking my vitamins a bit ago because they had sugar in them. -shrugs- I also can't stand anything with hydrogenated vegetable oils or lots of saturated fats or artificial flavoring.

Ari, do you still have vitamins in pill form, at least? You could become very unhealthy without them. D:

Hmm.
Sorta.
I try to eat rather healthy, like, mainly my diet consist of chicken, fish, and pasta, with veggies and some fruit.
But I have certant food I like to eat thats 'junk food'. Like, potatoe chips and sour cream, fudge cookies with white chocolate chips (:3), marshmellow bunnies (Which, are actually KINDA healthy...besides the sugar, marshmellows don't really have that much fat or stuff). I usually eat whole-weat bread to..
And I'm not a big fan of red meat (Steak mainly) but every now and then I'll have a hamburger.
But when it comes to junk food, I actually like spicy or sour stuff better. I'm not a big fan of cake icing, only chocolate, or cake in genral. I don't eat cupcakes either..
But I also don't eat ice cream or drink milk, considering I'm lactos entalorent, so...I have to find some vitamins in other stuff.
I guess the main thing I eat thats not that healthy is fried foods.

Neh. I guess I'm a healthy eater, but not really by my own choice. First off, my parents don't buy me chocolate or starburst or any of the unhealthy stuff I like. Pretty much my only unhealthy stuff is the occasional McDs. Also, I can stand the taste of pop or any of the rich stuff I liked as I kid, so I end up buying healthy stuff anyway. Like a smoothie instead of a sundae.

Noah, do you drink lactose-free milk? That's actually what I drink, because... well, I don't know. xD

Also, I just had ice cream. And it was HEALTHY. ^^ And yummy. And homemade. And it had no sugar. ^^ Beat that. xD

Well, see, I absolutely love junk food. I don't let myself eat a lot of it, though. Actually, my mom doesn't let me. She's all about eating healthy, which can really suck sometimes, though I suppose it's good in the end. And I can still eat the foods I like, though in smaller portions. Meh. I'll benefit from it, so I'm fine with it.

... and then there are the times I sneak downstairs at 3 in the morning while talking to Jaidis and grab a few chocolate chips and a lemon bar, smuggle them back up to my room, and nomnomnom.

I'm horrible at eating healthy. I do well enough if I'm not near the junk, cus then I just eat the healthy stuff that's available. I'll even ask mom for healthier stuff from the grocery store. xD But if I were locked in a big room for a week with junk food one one side, and healthy stuff on the other, then I probably wouldn't even touch the healthy stuff.

Or, wait, no, that's not true. I'd probably go back and forth - pigging out on junk, then getting sick and cleansing myself on healthy stuff before feeling like going back. XD

Noooo, I've never really liked drinking plain milk anyway, but...
There are some ice creams I can have. Like, Chick-fil-a's icecream isn't high in lactos, and neither is Wendy's Frosties...which, I'm not sure if you've ever had Ari, since A) You're in Europe and B) THey have sugar xD

Ooooh, thats awesome! Homemade is the best...even though it can be to sweet for my sometimes.
