I have recently joined a dodgeball league with a few coworkers. After our first game, we went to a local bar for some super delish wings (just 0.39 cents per wing!).
Ironically, I randomly found this funny video by soon after. I think it’s one of those videos you cannot take seriously. And it might be a tad bit suggestive in the beginning. Obviously, it’s pretty sexist to say that only ladies should eat this non-messy way.
Anyways, while this might be an ….interesting way to eat wings, no thank you! I think that making a mess is just part of the territory when consuming wings. No guts, no glory! Besides, how can you call them finger licking good then???
Plus, when I’m done with wings, you will know it! I clean it right to the bone! No sauce left behind in the aftermath. I personally think that the messier you get into it, the more satisfying the meal is. Just remember to clean up after, you cave man.
Rather interesting news I found on Yahoo today: two new eating disorders have been defined.
According to WebMD, an eating disorder is defined as “conditions that cause a person to have unhealthy thoughts and behaviors related to food and body image.” They go on to give examples such as anorexia (severe restriction of food intake), bulimia (drastic prevention of weight gain), and binge eating (overconsumption).
As a person who has a constant struggle with my body image, I have had my share of eating disorder temptation, and I can say from personal experience it is not good for you physically and mentally. It changes your mood and gives you low self esteem. You feel like you lack energy and are weak. You beat yourself up for what probably is an occassional indulgence or for skipping out on the gym.
Not to say that you shouldn’t attempt to control caloric intake/outake, but it was so easy for me to skew to an extreme I cannot stress to be careful.
Anyways, the two new disorders scientists are trying to recognize are:
Adult Selective Eating: where a person is extremely picky about their food, but not because of body image or numeric caloric intake. Theories run that these adults haven’t outgrown child eating patterns or have a strong sense of taste that hinders them for liking certain foods. Typically they characterized as liking very bland foods.
Orthorexia: obsessively wanting to only consume “healthy” foods, only “pure, natural” items. Again not because of body image or weight reasons. They shy away typically from anything artifical or processed.
