Few things are more obnoxious than the faux-concern that comes from diet evangelicals. As in the people who start a new diet, then see it as their life's mission to make sure

  1. Everyone knows how fabulous their diet is
  2. Your failure to convert to their standards means that you are incapable of eating like an adult and are or soon will be morbidly obese/unhealthy.

I'll admit that I could eat better, but I definitely don't eat that bad. I definitely have portion controlled figured out, and usually I eat well enough that when I ordered a bacon cheeseburger and fries for lunch, you can hold the side of judgey side eye, thank you very much.

Cue this exchange in line at the cafeteria:

Her: "How do you stay so thin eating garbage like that?"

Me: Death stare, followed by shrug. "Oh, I run 40 miles a week."

Her: Look of disgust. "Well, imagine how much more weight you could lose if you ate better."
