Today is a glorious day for fitfluencers because it's National Junk Food Day. That's right, a whole day devoted to celebrating burgers and fries, fried Snickers bars, Cheetos, Mountain Dew, the oeuvre of Steven Seagal, and the numerous memes on social media that pass for "health" advice these days.

Yeah, it is kind of hater-ish to point out the obvious here. Nevertheless, it's quite clear that almost every fitfluencer has figured out that you need diet and exercise to make meaningful transformations and that means a love/hate relationship with junk food.

At the end of the day, we have been eating "unhealthy" stuff for centuries. Junk food is a relatively modern term dating back to the 70s. As for what is good for you and what isn't good for you, well, it's up to you.


If you're an adult, you can make your own food choices and if you want to have a junk food day then, have a junk food day. You may not want to mainline a McFlurry every day but it's not like there's a law against it.


As for fitfluencers, they need content, and they need badly so, who are we to criticize the process. I mean, here I am writing an article about junk food appreciation on a fitness blog. Here's a week of meals to break your junk food addiction.


There, I am redeemed.
