I think after you’ve been through the inferno that is an eating disorder, like myself, the eye rolling you engage in when encountering other disordered eaters starts to morph in a serious migraine.
You hear excuse after excuse of people trying to get out of eating. Common ones are:
“I’m SO full”
“I JUST ate five cheeseburgers, I’m such a pig, hahaha!”
“I’m allergic to calories”
Fuck that bullshit.
Here’s some better excuses for you’re fear of calorie consumption:
1) “I’m trying to get so thin that I make people concerned about me”.
Why am I suggesting this?
Because in some cases, it the fucking TRUTH! And in the cases where it is the truth, 99% of the time the person won’t admit that it’s the reason why they’re not eating. I understand there are numerous reasons why people get eating disorders. One that is often overlooked and concealed is that people are lacking the attention they want/need and instead of become an attention whore via twitter, they decide they’ll just silently kill themselves secretly hoping someone will worry.
Its a dumb thing they do (Even I did it) where they actually WANT to look abnormal and sickly.
2) “Food tastes……weird!”
Of course food tastes weird.
Especially when the food you’re used to actually ingestion is vegetables and super lean proteins that are over seasoned with calorie-free seasonings. Plus, not eating fats for a while is bound to fuck up your taste buds. Studies show that 9 out of 10 taste buds go on strike when someone limits their fat intake to miniscule amounts.
Yep, I read it somewhere.
3) “My mouth is too tired to chew, just finished blowing my boyfriend”
This needs no elaboration.
Its purely just a better excuse than “I’m so stuffed!”.
5) “I have this thing…its basically an eating disorder”
Seriously, why can’t we just be a little more honest to people?
Stop pretending to not be hungry and just say you have issues. We all have issues. I know you want to be special, but you’re not. Everyone has struggles and excuses is just a hybrid of denial and bullshit.
Do you have any better alternative excuses? Whats a common excuse you find yourself using often?
