    Do you think you eat a lot?

    Shop Now
    Hey Guys,

    So I went to a BBQ last weekend and I ate a tonne of food. I tried to stay strictly to "paleo" foods like meat, salad and some starches at this event. I gave in to some butter tarts that were there. Anyway, my point is people saw how much I was eating and they were telling my DH how much of good eater I was.

    What does this even mean? Is it not okay for women to eat a lot? Okay, I'm 5'2 and 121 lbs so it's not like I'm that tiny.

    Every single person I know says I eat more than anyone they know.

    Haha, "good eater". It's what people say to children when they clean their plate.

    I don't know what people would have meant by it at all, but you could choose to take it as a compliment, yes you are a good eater because you know how to eat good food

    As for me, yes I do think I eat heaps and I would have been like you - filling up on the mainly primal food and maybe succumbing to a particularly good piece of home baking. Unlike those who've been grazing on muffins all day you were probably genuinely hungry for a decent meal and were due to eat well.

    Don't take offense, it's odd but who cares?

    Totally not offended at all when they said it. I'm just surprised by it like they have never seen a woman eat that much food. Yes I was hungry that day..

    A lot at once, yeah. I don't eat unless it's going to be a 750~1500 kcal and decent quality. In the past I was afraid to eat anything hearty so I'd drift from one unsatisfying snack to the next--not doing that again.

    I think a lot of people are accustomed to women who are not fat (and even women who are) picking at diet food and yammering on about their eating. I find it tiresome. Other people probably do too. It's refreshing to see a woman enjoy good food. A little weird to comment on it though...

    ETA: Sometimes I eat a ton. Other times less.
