What I Eat in a Day videos are quite popular. I even make them myself, but there is a big problem with a lot of What I Eat in a Day videos: they promote dieting and unhealthy ideas about food and eating. Now, this obviously isn't the case with all What I Eat in a Day videos, but it's something that I see a lot. There are a lot of different ways that these videos do this, from the thumbnails, to the food, to the messages about how to decide what to eat. This is something that I've been thinking about for a while and I've mentioned briefly in other videos, but I think it's time for us to have a dedicated conversation about this topic. What I Eat in a Day videos can be a lot of fun! They can give us ideas and inspiration for meals to make in our own kitchens and it's interesting to see how other people live, but we also need to recognize some of the unhelpful and even harmful messages that some What I Eat in a Day videos contain. If we want to break down the diet culture and diet mentality, we have to recognize it.
