5 Memes That Sum Up The Reasons Switching To A Healthy Diet Sucks

5 Memes That Sum Up The Reasons Switching To A Healthy Diet Sucks

Because being healthy is hard. It is not fun.

Most of us have made our New Years Resolutions for 2018, and one of the biggest things we resolve to do is to eat healthier. I recently resolved to do this but it really wasn't what I wanted to do. If I had a choice I'd honestly eat all the junk I wanted but unfortunately, life had other plans for me. Recently I've been suffering from Acid Reflux and was becoming tired of having my throat on fire every day and popping acid reducers.

I had to make the decision to set myself straight and eat a non-inflammatory diet and avoid my trigger foods. On top of this, I have a mild Lactose Intolerance and mild Gluten Intolerance, so as you can imagine these changes limited what I could eat even more. Luckily I'm not a super picky eater, but when you're used to eating a certain way with so many options it can feel like you're stuck in a box. So without further ado, I give you five things that suck about changing your diet as told by memes.

1. Taking That First Sip of Apple Cider Vinegar

Even if you mix it with honey and tea it will still curl your toes and give you the cider shivers. If you drink this you know what I'm talking about. You sincerely hope that it actually is a miracle cure because otherwise your drinking nuclear apple pee for nothing.

2. You Have to Lie to Yourself That it Will be Okay

You come up with a million reasons to justify why you're putting yourself through this because your body hates you and some eccentric says that it works.

3. You Miss the Foods You Used to Eat

Mac N' Cheese, Ice Cream, Chocolate, Coffee, Pie, etc. I could go on and on forever.

4. The Poops

If you have any fiber at all it's either a Japanese train or a baseball bat. Both are uncomfortable and messy.

5. People Think You're Just Being Stuck Up

When you tell someone you can't eat something they treat it as a joke and think you're just trying to get more Insta-followers.

When You're With The Right Guy, He'll Take The Time To Learn About Your Mental Illness, Trust Me

If he wants to make it work and really loves you, he'll learn all of your ins and outs.


My boyfriend and I have been dating for a little over a year. The journey we've been on to get to where we are now has been one of the scariest and most fun roller coasters I've ever been on.

My mental health has come in the way of a lot of relationships, both romantic and platonic. I've never quite been able to find a way to master explaining it to people. And I still haven't. Explaining what can happen in your head, when you can barely explain it to yourself is a very difficult and often heart wrenching task.

When I had started dating my boyfriend, I was scared to tell him about my mental health. While I have gained a lot of confidence and it isn't nearly as severe as it was years ago, I know how it can get when "one of those days" comes. I know how scary I can get when I fall into a panic attack. I know how hard it can be to look at someone you love while they have a tear stained face unable to tell you what's wrong.

In the past I've tried two different things. One being that I wouldn't tell them at all and I would try to go day by day like I didn't have this cloud above my head. Once they'd see what I can get like, they'd leave. They "couldn't handle the amount of work I needed" or they felt burdened by being with me. Some would even say they "love me too much to put themselves through seeing me like that."

The other option I tried was putting it all out on the table. I had tried that once. I had told my most recent ex boyfriend everything. I laid it all out on the line, hoping that it would be different. At first, it was. He was comforting and understanding. Until it got to a point where he was using what I told him against me.

He knew my weak points. He knew what would hit the hardest and he was good at what he was doing.

It wasn't until my current boyfriend that I realized that isn't how love should be.

He could tell from the beginning that there were missing puzzle pieces. There were walls that I had build around me that I wasn't about to let just anyone knock down. At first, I found his pestering quite rude. Until he proved his point. He had come to me one night and said he wanted me to tell him everything. No details left behind.

I kind of sat there with my mouth open. I actually tried to pretend as if I didn't know what he was talking about. Within minutes, I was spilling everything. Every crevice I could have touched base on, I did. While I thought he was going to look shocked, scared, or bored even.

He didn't.

He was looking deep into my eyes the whole time. He never broke eye contact with me. He was focused and didn't say anything, just nodded his head. After I was finished and the tears were falling, he held me in an embrace and the only words he could mutter was, "You are so beautiful and one of the strongest people I know. You will get stronger. I promise."

He's taken the time to learn everything. He's watched psychologist's lectures, he's read articles. He's done everything in his power to learn what I need on my dark times. He honestly has gotten to know me so well, I think he knows me better than I know myself.

Not only has it helped our relationship as a whole, but it's helped me learn about myself in a way that I couldn't quite do on my own. He's offered me a kind of love that I've never had before. One where I don't have to fear rejection or getting left behind.

Ladies, if he's the right guy, he'll do whatever it takes to make sure that you have exactly what you need. Not just physically but mentally as well. My guy knows the days where, I could just really use a good cry and being held for 20 minutes. He also knows when I need reassurance.

A guy that truly loves you will learn these things about you. He won't ignore you, he won't brush it off and say "you'll be fine."

Take my word on it, that's the guy you'll want to marry someday.

I know I do.
