Food Porn - Get Fat Mentally

Roy McCoy

Okay, so before we get into this post, just watch the video above, drool and drool. And drool again.

If you’re not familiar with the term ‘food porn’, here is the Wikipedia entry.

According to Mr.Wiki- “Food porn is a glamorized spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, cooking shows or other visual media,foods boasting a high fat and calorie content, exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat or the glorification of food as a substitute for sex. Food porn often takes the form of food photography and styling that presents food provocatively, in a similar way to glamor photography or pornographic photography.”

Basically, it’s just pictures or videos of mouth watering food. If you’re on a diet then you know how difficult it is to resist stuffing yourself with deep fried bacon, caramel coated cupcakes or hot chicken wings. Mentally feeding yourself by looking at a beautiful food photo is probably good for your mental health, but sadly some experts say it can eventually make you fat by actually triggering your craving for food. Similar to sexual pornography, food porn whets your appetite, allowing you to lust after the orgasm of the perfect bite.

However, I don’t think it’s really fair to blame  weight gain on food porn only. It’s more about eating healthy, eating less and exercise.

Honestly, I have had a weird obsession over food porn, frequently visiting websites that keep my mental appetite satisfied. Whether it’s making us fat or not, they are definitely worth checking out! Here are some of the best:

1) http://thisiswhyyourefat.tumblr.com/

As the name suggests, it shows ‘why you are fat’. It’s a tumbler based website where users upload their own mouth-watering pictures of food.

 

2) http://foodporndaily.com/

Yes. Click, drool, repeat. Do them.

 

3) http://foodgawker.com/

This neatly designed website is one of the most popular food porn sites out there.
