I’ve had a fair number of people tell me this. I’m not sure if they are trying to be funny, but it is really annoying! Could I go up to a heavier person and tell them to “eat a salad”? No. So, you shouldn’t be allowed to tell me to eat fatty foods. Also, I love burgers so I have no problem eating another one. I just don’t need you telling me to do so.
People often comment on my weight. Usually it’s some form of telling me I’m really skinny. I don’t know why people feel the need to point this out to me, I own a mirror! Are you jealous? Don’t be, I’d much rather have a curvier body. Do you think I’m anorexic? Well, I am not. Are you simply stating a fact? Because this is something I already know. I don’t understand the point of this. Do you go up to blondes and say to them, “Wow, your hair is so light!” Yeah, didn’t think so.
If you couldn’t already tell I absolutely hate being told this. I don’t find it funny in any way. I almost feel like you are shaming my body. Stop telling me what to ingest because I don’t sit around and tell you what to eat. I am perfectly aware that I need to make strides to be healthier.
There are so many reasons why people may be skinnier or heavier, medical issues, mental health etc. So if you truly thought you were helping someone by simply telling them to eat a burger, think again!
