Proud of NEVER Eating Certain Foods? What's Going On Here?

Something I've been thinking about lately is adults who are proud of never eating certain foods. In some cases, these are adults who have never even tried a certain food or food group in their entire life. You might call this extreme picky eating or adult picky eating, but it seems a little bit different to me. That's because some of these restrictions don't necessarily have to do with food preferences. Sometimes, it's something that has become a part of that's person identity and so they just keep doing it with no real reason other than it has become a part of who they are.
