I just read a forum post on myfitnesspal.com and it really hit home.
To use the term “starving” in relation to your diet, as in “OMG, I’m starving, give me dinner!” is so inappropriate!
Google images for “starving child” and the impact should make you think twice about ever using the term “starving” again!
No, we are not starving. There’s plenty of food in the cupboard and fridge. There’s plenty of food down the street on the grocery store shelves. There’s plenty of food in warehouses and trucks around the country. We are NOT starving, the appropriate word is “hungry”.
