I went out for a team lunch today and since we went to an Italian place, most people chose to order pizzas. Now before you say anything, I don’t have anything against people eating pizzas. What triggered the blog-writing voice in my head was the girl sitting in front of me – she was struggling to finish this enormous pizza but kept on going nevertheless. Another colleague of mine, also having noticed this, asked her why doesn’t she just leave it, like everyone else did, to which her answer was “I really don’t like wasting food”.
What is your reason to continue eating even if you’re full?
Now let’s analyse this for a second, I don’t like wasting food either, that’s why when I make food I make just enough, or I order something small if I’m eating out. People sometimes have funny reasons for not wanting to waste food, they say stuff like “think about the poor kids in Africa” or “my parents always told me never to leave food on the plate”.
I’m sorry if this sounds judgmental…but that’s how people get fat!
