Study: Shopping While Hungry Might Make You Buy A Bunch Of Stuff You Don’t Want

We all know the horrors of roaming the grocery store aisles while hungry (and subsequently filling up your cart with $50 worth of Ho Hos and Kraft Deluxe instead of the kale you came for), but a University of Minnesota study has found that hunger can fuel regretful purchases of any products, not just food. The study, which was published last week…

It Might Not Be Necessary To Eat Three Meals A Day, But It’s Better For You

I was scrolling through nutrition news today when I happened upon this article on the decline of the Three Meals A Day paradigm. It’s weirdly depressing: It starts out talking about the fact that back in ye olde days, before electricity, people didn’t actually eat three meals a day — they had bread for breakfast…

Never, Ever, Ever Stop Eating

Last week was Body Confidence Week in the UK, a social media marketing campaign led by Dove (of course). I watched on Sunday as the UK body positivity organization Shape Your Culture got the hashtag #fatisnotafeeling to trend on Twitter in response to Facebook adding “fat” and “ugly” as emotions for status updates.

Frisky Rant: If You’re Eating Smelly Food On The Train, I Hate You

I ask very little of the New York subway system. I want trains to come when they’re supposed to, I want them to not break down while I’m riding them, and I want to feel safe traveling from Point A to Point B. Sometimes we’re shoved up against some sweaty man’s wet armpit because we…

Domino’s Breaded Chicken Crust Pizza & 13 Other Crazy And Sort Of Disgusting Fast Food Innovations

I don’t eat a ton of fast food, but I do pay close attention to the fast food industry’s attempts to one-up each other with crazier, weirder and, if you ask me, more disgusting food innovations and hybrids. Take, for example, Domino’s new pizza with a breaded chicken crust. Excuse me, “speciality chicken” crust, whatever that means.

Girl Talk: Adventures In Intuitive Eating

We’re all born with the ability to eat intuitively, to listen to our body’s needs, to eat nourishing foods when we’re hungry, to stop when we’re full. It’s our default setting; our natural state. Even just writing that out right now, it’s such a “duh” that I can’t believe how easy and common it i…

Burger King, Get Your Lower-Calorie “Satisfries” Out Of My Face

When I decide it’s high time for me to procure myself some fast food French fries, the last (last!!!!!!) thing on my mind is their caloric content. No, when I decide that I done deserve some fries, I don’t care how many calories they’re gonna cost me, or where those calories are going. They are…

Soon to Be Made In China: Your Chicken Nuggets

The US Department of Agriculture quietly announced on Friday that it had approved four Chinese poultry plants to ship processed chicken into the US. It’s no wonder it tried to sneak that news onto the eve of a long weekend, notes Bloomberg: China has a dodgy reputation for food safety, with repeated outbreaks of avia…

Valentino Shares His Super Sad Diet With Harper’s Bazaar

Diets, man! What a bitch. As a human with a particular fondness for bread, cheese, and meat and a diminutive frame that, presented with the opportunity, will take all of those calories, thank you very much, and keep them forever and ever, I am almost always on some sort of depressing leafy-greens-and-lean-protein restriction. For health,…

Science Says That Diets Are Actually Depressing, Not Just Hyperbolically

Dieting is probably my foremost hobby. It might even take precedence over my two other main interests, which are 1) lying on the sofa complaining of feeling faint like a Victorian anemic and 2) staring at myself in the mirror. Of course, dieting for me just means eating healthily, because my idea of eating whatever…

5 Ways To Eat As You Want This Holiday Season

Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, my mother makes two different kinds of dip. One is an onion dip, made by combining a tub of sour cream and a packet of onion soup mix. The other is a beef dip which I think is just warm pastrami all chopped up and combined with uh, another tub of…

The Soapbox: How To Handle Food Shame During The Holidays

This piece was cross-posted with permission from FatNutritionist.com. It was originally published before Thanksgiving but we are crossposting it here with the rest of the holiday season in mind. 

It’s true, Thanksgiving is a weirdly imperialist semi-genocidal sort of holiday, but hey, at least we can enjoy the tradition of getting together with…

Is It Gross For Couples To Feed Each Other In A Restaurant?

Have you ever gone to a restaurant with your guy and ordered a milkshake with two straws? Yes? Well, that’s adorable. A milkshake is a nice item to share. Sure, it’s cliché, but at least there’s no mess.

Carl’s Jr is currently testing a new product called the “Ice Cream Brrrger,” which is, well, exactly what it sounds like: a burger made of ice cream.

Adonia Frozen Yogurt Will Make A Greek Goddess Out Of You

I’ll preface this Crave by saying I am literally Craving this right now, and as soon as you try it, you will be too. I consider myself fortunate to be able to say that ice cream is my only vice — well, aside from brut, brut rosé, prosecco, and any and all other varieties of…

Girl Talk: I’m A Binge Eater (Sometimes)

A few weeks ago, I was sitting at my boyfriend’s living room table, alone, in the middle of a weekday afternoon, my laptop open, trying to fend off both a cold and a bad mood. I was frustrated that I couldn’t pick amongst the multiple documents I had open that required my urgent attention, and…

Ouch: Woman Eats Nothing But Pizza For 31 Years

It’s not that Claire Simmons doesn’t want to eat any other food, it’s that she physically can’t eat anything other than pizza. The 33-year-old British woman has what’s called Selective Eating Disorder, which means that she hasn’t been able to eat anything other than plain cheese pizza in 31 years. A rare subset of eating…
