Salad Girls

I don’t mean to upset any of you, I’m just curious.

SOME girls, a lot of girls actually, go to restaurants and only order a salad. They eat half of it and then push the dish and say “I’m full / tshabe3 sala6at’hom”. It happens a lot and it’s kinda funny. Why go to a restaurant and just eat a salad? Are you dieting? Let’s assume you are indeed dieting.. Why eat half of it? Is it really that filling?

I asked a girl and she said that she knows the “type”, she said that some girls do that coz they feel more attractive acting this way. She also said that some girls do that and then order a real meal when they get to home.

My friend told me that his colleague has been married for many years, But to this day when she wants to eat freely at a restaurant she has to be with a friend, if she were ever with her husband she always settle for a salad and tiny bites here and there. She says she’s too self conscious to eat what her heart desires when her husband’s around

I know a lot of girls who are not like that though, so don’t feel like I’m generalizing here. I just don’t understand.

    I did notice people in general are a bit conscious when it comes to eating in public here. Honestly I couldn’t be bothered, I even eat a burger while I’m driving to somewhere – and I’m female. I get the stares but who cares. It’s not like you’re doing anything wrong.

    As for the salad, I am a healthy eater in general so I do enjoy the variety of salads that restaurants offer. If I can’t finish the whole thing then I’ll probably push it aside, otherwise I’ll just wipe out the whole thing like 7aneen said 😀

    I don’t diet but I eat healthy. Not many restaurants have healthy food options that are actually healthy. So I usually get just a salad.. and a general rule to maintain your weight (and I’m not talking about losing weight although it’s true for people who want to lose weight too) as part of a healthy lifestyle is to eat slow, listen to your body, and eat until you are full. Even if that means eating only half your salad.. sometimes salads come in huge portions, and your body doesn’t really need to consume that much energy. So, that’s my reasoning.. why have the extra calories when I know I’ll have to burn them off at the gym later on for an extra 15-30min that I could have avoided in the first place?

    They must believe that men will think they’re pigs if they ‘ydubboon’. Bass why don’t you clear the air for us?

    What do the guys REALLY think about girls who go to restaurants, order ili ako wili makoo, and devour it deliciously and with ease, and even use their hands for pizza and burgers?

    LoooooL I agree with you totally!! I am so not that type.. I once went to a formal ga3da in a restaurant here, and every lady was like “la kaleet riyoog i am only taking coffee” and then i was like “kaifkom ana yoo3ana” looool and one lady was happy i did that because she was hungry but she was going to settle for a coffee like everyone.. I personally eat whatever i want, whether just a salad or a wholemeal..

    Y….for centuries, men have been trying to figure out women…we really should bank on the experiences of those who have tried and not reinvent the wheel !!!! any attempt to do so would simply land you in trouble…just sit back…and watch…
