Did you know that today is national Eat What You Want Day?

Asked by john65pennington (29187points) May 11th, 2011

Today is the day you have been waiting for. You can pig-out on your favorite foods and stow away your frozen Lean Quisine. Forget the SlimFast, forget Jennie Craig, and forget your scales and bring on the calories and carbohydrants. Order two large pizzas and eat both yourself. Question: you are in good health, so what’s on your menu to order today to celebrate?? No holes barred, go for it.

Hmm… every day is pretty much “eat what you want” day for me, so this isn’t a really special occasion for me. It is, however, my last day of finals and I’m going to be spending most of the day packing up my dorm stuff to move back home, so it looks like I won’t be eating anything today :-/

How is today any different when America (at least) has already been doing that for how many years? Really, Dennys? A bacon sundae? It’s always an Epic Meal Time in America.

I didn’t know! Right now,I am having oatmeal with stevia as a sweetener.
I should have had a big honkin’ hunk of German chocolate cherry cake instead,topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.:(

Lucy, you can have your cake and eat it, too!

Have cake for lunch, dinner and before bedtime.

Your secret is safe with me.

Well, I’m eating cashews and having a glass of ginger ale for breakfast… so apparently I’m off to a good start. I didn’t even know today was special, but my eating habits have been way out of whack for the last few weeks. At least I don’t have to feel guilty about it today.

Okay, well i’ll have some cow pie then. The size of a standard satellite dish should do. I like pie me la!!

I’ve already been doing this for the last two days after the mothers day/B-day party combo over here Sunday.
OMG! Polished off the spinach dip and chips and ice cream cake yesterday. Blech! I am fooded out…sooo, think I’ll skip the free ride today.

Nothing is free, just ask my expanding a$$! lol

@Blackberry I almost got the bacon sundae the other day, but was too stuffed from the ridiculous sandwich with three types of pork in it.

I’m thinking hotdogs will be in order, maybe a bacon cheeseburger, and Vietnamese food. But I’m not at home, and I don’t know where the decent Vietnamese food is, so maybe not.

Sweet, I’ll have to set a trap for the raccoon that comes to visit my yard every night. I’m a vegetarian, but I’m so sick of my garbage cans being knocked over every night =(.

Seelix's avatar

@FutureMemory – The raccoon should get a free pass today! He’s just eating what he wants ;)

Sounds like a great day to go to Freebirds and have a monster burrito.

Only Congress can declare a National “something” Day.
Is this what they’re wasting their time on?

deni's avatar

Convenient seeing as how I’m eating Cap’n Crunch right now and about to finish it off with a caramel apple.

Berserker's avatar

I’m too damn poor to eat what I want lol.
