Dietary choice (and responsibility)

Noticed this poster on campus:

How is that an eating disorder?

Do you check to see what grade of gas you pump into your vehicle each time you pull up at a gas station?

So what is wrong with checking the fat, protein, carbohydrate, and calorie contents of each meal you consume?

What is wrong with weighing yourself each day?

It is a useful gauge in determining if you are adequately hydrated (thirst is a poor means of measurement).

While I probably can never maintain the unwavering discipline of professional athletes like

Lance Armstrong in achieving their rarefied fitness, I believe that the amateur attempt at mirroring their dietary lifestyles yields rich dividends in health and physical fitness nonetheless.

As for skipping a meal, it is sometimes necessary to do so when an inflexible deadline has to be met. I fail to see why anyone can't handle skipping a meal (unless you are hypoglycemic). It's not the end of the world if you miss a meal. You can live without food for more than a month. Get over it.

Snacking, eating fast food or junk food, and chugging sodas, are NOT normal or healthy eating habits. Paying attention to what you eat is NOT an eating disorder. It is an act of personal responsibility.

Remember the adage: "You are what you eat."
