Eating habits basically describe why and how individuals consume meals. It also refers to with whom they eat and ways in which people behave to obtain, store, use, and discard food. These food habits are affected by factors like social, cultural, religious, etc.


Unintentional Diners have a tendency to accidentally munch because they are characterized with spontaneity, with no planned meals ahead of time. When boredom or frustration strikes, consumption of food–regardless of nutrition or calorie content–becomes a tad bit excessive.

Nutritional needs are not given much importance by Necessity Diners. Since eating is regarded as nothing more than a need, food solely serves as a way to power through the day. Workaholics are perfect examples of people who exemplify this type due to their habit of setting aside the specifics of meals such as quality and presentation.

When eating routines are in place, expect Habitual Diners to be the masterminds behind it. These habits may have been acquired during teenage years or young adulthood. Such routines include drinking, smoking, or enjoying certain meals. Since these people have done it on a regular basis, despite having detrimental effects to their health, they choose not to change their routine. They have already reached so far in their lives, so changing habits does not make any sense.

Another interesting type of eating habit is that of People Diners. Basically, these diners behave based on what their friends or family members do. Humans have a natural inclination to feel that they belong in an environment. During social events or gatherings, People Diners fail to think about what they actually need and want so as to prioritize the individuals around them.

Broken-Hearted Diners are already self-explanatory. After a relationship has ended and drama ensues, diners like these suffer from an emotional rollercoaster ride. Eating patterns are characterized as destructive and irregular. They get too involved in the sudden shift of their lives, hence affecting their food and nutritional intake. Fortunately, there is a way around this. All it takes is for them to stay grounded on the fact that things will get better. The pain and suffering are only temporary baggages; it dissipates when the perspective changes.

A healthy lifestyle and well-being are vital to Well-Balanced Diners. They exactly know what different types of meals to eat and the correct proportion to take. Even exercising becomes part of their everyday routine.
