I’d meant to post a follow-up bit of advice after my “mediocrevore” article two weeks ago. The best answer I’ve come up with when people ask me why I’m eating light or not drinking is, “I have way more energy if I eat a lot of vegetables/stay away from sweets/avoid alcohol.” It’s true, but it’s not overly specific and doesn’t offer anything another person can argue with, offer unwanted advice for, or gossip about. It’s also an answer that doesn’t seem to make other people feel defensive and guilty the way mentioning a weight- or fitness-related goal woes.
If you’re a healthy eater who gets a lot of questions, try this sometime. Let me know if it works!
