Being healthy, extra-clean and taking care of your body is your top priority. You exercise regularly, wear helmet when biking, say no to drugs, drink moderately and always wear sunscreen. You’re also quite the health nut when it comes to your diet and nutrition in general. Here are the top 10 indicators you are unmistakably obsessed with health and an annoying health freak:
10. You’re always up to date on health matters.
You’re subscribed to at least one health-related mailing list or blog on the web.
9. Only produce. No fat.
You won’t eat artificial anything and wouldn’t dare let a food past your lips that contains hydrogenated oil.
8. Shopping for food is a thorough activity.
It takes you over an hour to buy groceries because you have to read every single label.
7. Essential nutrients!
You know more about vitamins than the staff at the pharmacy: the source, effectiveness, deficiency, recommended daily value/daily need and who has advanced need of them.
6. White bread vs. Brown bread
You think serving a sandwich on white bread should be a punishable crime.
5. You never skip gym.
Besides, you are self-important, showing off (although you don’t want it to be obvious), you nag too much and you make everything about exercise – “Why don’t you jog as you’re taking out the trash?”
4. You’re an encyclopedia of health terms and foods.
Of course you’ve heard of quinoa, tempeh, adzukis and dorsiflexion — who hasn’t? You use the words “organic” and “food” interchangeably and you are overusing a variety of health buzzwords.
3. Everything is Green.
Your lunch bears a strange resemblance to rabbit food. Not to mention your fridge.
2. You eat “x” types of the same food.
You have three different types of flax products in your kitchen because you’ve heard they may contain totally different essential substances.
1. You are VVRBM.
You’ve tried going vegetarian, vegan, raw, blood-based diet or macrobiotic at least once.
