11 Eating Styles: What does yours say about you?

KICKOL-LOGO.jpgAccording to Our Lady of Weight Loss, the patron saint of permanent fat removal, she who has devoted a great deal of time to examining the way in which people eat, there are 10 basic eating styles – from Gulp n’ Go to Totally Beige to the Food Architect.
What’s your eating style? What does your eating ‘style’ say about you? Perhaps it’s time to take a look at our methodology and make some adjustments!!!
Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Top 11 Eating Styles – yes, I did say that there are 10, but here, today, Our Lady of Weight Loss, the patron saint of permanent fat removal is suggesting an 11th!
1. The Unconscious Eater: If you find yourself covered in cookie crumbs, and do not have any memory of eating cookies, you are an UNCONSCIOUS EATER. WAKE UP! Be in the here and now.
2. Gulp n’ Go: Are you always on the run, doing the ole’ GULP n’ GO? Sit down and take a moment. Please.
3. Food Architect: You are a FOOD ARCHITECT if you sculpt mountains of mashed potatoes, arrange broccoli in and around them like trees, and layer slices of meat until you’ve created a high-rise apartment building. While I admire your creativity, play with Legos instead!
4. Assembly-Line Eater: You are an ASSEMBLY-LINE EATER if you load-up another fork full while still chewing. Put the fork down in between bites.
5. Never Say, “No, Thank You.”: Do you have a NEVER SAY, “NO, THANK YOU” policy in place? Afraid you might offend someone? Time for a re-write.
6. If It’s FREE, It’s for ME: Do you exclaim, “IF IT’S FREE, IT’S FOR ME!” when you see free food tastings and samplings at the supermarket? Eat before food shopping and recommit to your goals before you head out.
7. Closet Eater: You are a CLOSET EATER if you keep a mini-fridge in your coat closet and visit it nightly. Come on out of the closet and join the rest of us. It’s safe out here.
8. Speed Eater: If your friends suggest that you challenge the Japanese world speed-eating champion who swallowed a total of 53 1/2 hot dogs, and their accompanying buns, in just 12 minutes, then you are a SPEED EATER. I’m gagging just thinking about it.
9. Beige-Eater: If potatoes, pasta and mac and cheese are your main stay, then you are a BEIGE-eater. Add red peppers, strawberries, green beans, and bright blueberries to your palate . . . NOW.
10. Fried: You are FRIED if you think ‘fried’ is a food group. Now you know better!
And now, on behalf of Our Lady of Weight Loss, I would like to introduce an 11th Style of Eating, coming to you at the 11th hour, so to speak.
11. Healthy, Plain n’ Simple: Just for a moment try on ‘Healthy’ as your eating style! How does it fit? Most people do not ingest enough vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals on a daily basis. Because our nutrient needs are not met, we lose control and cravings kick in.
Healthy isn’t complicated. In fact, it’s simple. All you need to do is eat more – more fruits and vegetables – more colorful plants. Not only will you lose weight; your health will also dramatically improve.
Here’s some food for thought!


2/3 of Americans are overweight
1/3 of Americans are classified as morbidly obese
50 percent of Americans die of heart attacks and strokes
28 million Americans suffer from the crippling pain of osteoarthritis
35 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches (source: Joel Fuhrman, M.D., author of Eat for Health)

Take one step toward health. Try on ‘healthy’. Eat more! Fruits and vegetables.
Slim down while you live it up!
Spread the healthy word … NOT the icing!

    If i have enough food budget,i’ll eat just the fruits and vegetables and fish,and more time for gym,but i guess,all i can do is to do my best to give myself healthy foods since i got so much things to take care of my girls needs,their food isn’t the same with mine so i can’t always have my own selection of food followed,and i don’t have enough budget to buy my own ,it’s a struggle for me when it comes to simple thing like this,i’m not living with more comfort than others Janice,but making efforts to take care our health is essential,we can only do our very best to obtain,maintain keep our bodies as healthy as possible,i believe whatever we may lack providing for our physical needs,God will take care of the rest,there’s no impossible to God as long as we have good conscience in keeping ourselves healthy regardless of our budget,no exploitation,no eating of wrong food,because it’s like poisoning our bodies,whatever is right to give or nurture our body,DO EVERY EFFORT to maintain healthy lifestyle.Thanks.

    YEP! It all boils down to how much money you have. At the cost of food today, it is going to be quite difficult to maintain any food. Not eating is not an option, I THINK?
    All these recommendations for the right food just increases their prices, from what I am seeing. I use to prefer vegetables over anything else but as the HYPE increases, so do the prices. UNFORTUNATE.

  • Lula

    George I have to disagree,vegetables,soups ,healthy options are tonnes cheaper than buying a huge steak or other expensive food….that is less healthy…open your eyes,don’t go to the obvious stores that are over priced,look for healthy bargains,be creative…you’ll find that expense doesnt always have to be an issue…but it sure can be an easy excuse!…

    Interesting article; but what about the SLOW eater….I eat very, very slowly. I have always eaten slow; and the older I get, the slower I get. I find that I eat less; and I would like to know about another Slow Eaters, out there. Thank you, for reading my comments and hopefully there are more people like me out there.

    Okay, I am a very slow eater also. My mother is slower than I am. My problem is not gulp “n” go or any of the others. Even when I had 2 boys to take care of, I ate slowly. So why am I overweight – I eat cookies, candy and other desserts quite slowly too – but in greater amounts than I should. happily, I have found the trick to weight loss for me and I lost 30 pounds on my first try and now I am on my second go-round. For me, giving up sweets is as hard as not smoking! But, I am working on it. My third Grandson will be born in the next couple weeks and I want to be healthy and lively for them. Losing weight has already helped me have more fun with my Grand-boys!

    I too eat slower than most folks. I love sweets, but have always been a member of the clean plate (and chip bag) club
