10 Most Annoying Things People Say On A Diet

It's enough to make you just want to shove a cake in their face already.

It's great when your mates try to get healthy. It's not so great if they say any of these things. Which they will. All of the flippin' time.


"I'm not even tired." 

 That's strange, because everyone else is. Of hearing you say that.

 

"Did you know there are almost 200 calories in a glass of wine?"

Fascinating. That must be why it tastes so, so good.

 

"What's in this?" 

Oh, just butter, sugar, carbs and the tears of orphaned kittens. That's all.

 

"Honestly, I feel so much better since giving up wheat." 

Simply tuck into a delicious, crusty, crunchy baguette sandwich in front of them and THEN see how much better they feel.

 

"I can't believe I haven't been to the gym this week."

You'd think they would believe it, having said the exact same thing last week.

 

"I just use 0% Greek yoghurt."

 The ultimate weapon in the dieter's arsenal, to be used in place of sour cream, mayonnaise, cream, and any kind of fun whatsoever.

 

"It's not really a diet, it's a lifestyle change." 

Yes, which means there'll never be anything to nibble on when you go to their house, because the kitchen will contain nothing but eggs and kale.

 

"Can I have the side salad instead of fries?"

Remember when it was fun to go out for dinner with your friend? Now you're too distracted watching them push every crouton to the side of the plate.

 

"Did you know when you feel peckish, you're probably just thirsty?"

 No, you just want cake.

 

"Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."

Incorrect: big chewy chocolate chip cookies taste very slightly better.
