Eat What You Want Day 2015
Monday, May 11, 2015

      Today is the most peculiar day when every U.S. citizen can indulge in a true feast for the stomach. Today is the National Day, when you can eat whatever you want or, in other words, Eat What You Want Day. This informal holiday is celebrated every year on May 11.

      It is not known who and when exactly devised to celebrate this day… According to one version the founder of this unusual culinary festival was Thomas Roy, a former radio host and a TV actor who was also a co-founder of Wellcat Holidays & Herbs.

      The holiday became known, and soon a firm conviction prevailed that it is absolutely incompatible with any diet. On the contrary, today is the only day of the year when you can break all the austere laws enacted to maintain (or acquire) a slim waist, and enjoy the food that you really adore.

      Today is the day when you can ignore the list of foodstuffs forbidden by your diet. Today you can afford the dainties that you would never try under normal circumstances.

      But on the other hand, this is the day to remember that you should not risk your health, well-being and mood in order to challenge the unknown delicacies.

      This unusual festival has another side, too. It concerns many Americans who in recent years have been strictly sticking to various diets. They believe that such an anti-dietary feast is sure to only discourage and slacken the willpower of someone fighting the obesity.

      And this opinion is well grounded: in America obesity is one of the most serious health problems. For the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of obese people in the U.S.. Obesity is known to be one of the major risk factors for developing cardiovascular diseases, certain types of cancer and diabetes.

      As you know, different degrees of obesity are defined by body mass index or BMI: figures 25- 29.99 signify excess body weight (pre-obesity), 30-34.99 - denote obesity of the first degree. According to 2009 statistics, only Colorado residents’ BMI was below 20, which indicates normal weight.

      The inhabitants of 33 states had BMI equal to or higher than 25, and the residents of nine of these states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia) BMI was equal to or higher than 30.
