I feel like this pandemic has gone either two ways for people in terms of eating: you’ve even decided to eat healthy and get in shape…or you’ve holed up in your house and you’re eating yourself into oblivion.
Full disclosure: I’m somewhere in the middle during this quarantine. I’ve definitely lost some weight and am getting outside to exercise on a regular basis, but there are just some nights where you just have to support the local pizza joint up the street, ya know?
But one thing is for sure: the pandemic has definitely had a big impact on the eating habits of folks out there.
Let’s take a look at what they had to say.
1. Dinner is served!
Nothing wrong with that.
Chocolate chip cookies were once a soothing snack at the beginning of quarantine. They have now progressed to dinner.

2. Yes. Yes, it is.
Might as well eat as much as possible if the world is ending.
Is inability to stop eating a symptom of Coronavirus?

3. That was determined to be FALSE.
We’ve been sold a lie all these years.
Remember when everyone used to say the key to losing weight was eating more of your meals at home?

4. No changes here.
Everything is perfectly normal.
Me [pouring a can of baked beans into a wine glass]: I wouldn’t say quarantine has changed me, no

5. Oh, it does.
We’ve all learned this lesson the hard way.
I never thought the apocalypse would involve so much eating.

6. What is this life?
What does it all mean?
Pandemic Diary, Day Whatever. You eat a sandwich. A tomato seed falls out, lands on your shirt. You stop eating and just stare at it.

7. Play-Doh actually tastes pretty good.
I remember it well…
Me: let’s use the quarantine to try foods that you wouldn’t normally eat!
3yo: *eats play-doh*
Me: yeah not like that.

8. As much as you want.
Don’t even think twice about it!
I hope all my fellow single people in isolation are relishing the simple joy of eating as much garlic as they want every day without the concern that they might want to pash someone later on

9. I might be able to make it.
I need to look at my schedule.
Text from boss: can you be on a Zoom meeting with the rest of the team in an hour?
Me, eating ice cream in the bath: if I move a few things around I should be able to

10. It’s growing…
Just go with it. Don’t fight it!
I'm not saying I'm eating a lot of crap during this quarantine, I'm just saying that my belly button has begun to socially distance itself away from the rest of my body.
— Rodney Lacroix (@RodLacroix) April 13, 2020
11. That’s actually not a bad idea.
Will you be my new life coach?
I like to wear my mask inside to keep me from eating.
— Swishergirl (@Swishergirl24) April 22, 2020
12. Are you sure about that?
Everything seems normal to me…
My wife: Time to do dishes again
Me (eating spaghettios out of a gravy boat): Why do you ask?
— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) April 30, 2020
13. This guy is doing just fine.
Don’t you think so?
Day 14: apparently my persistent dry cough was just from lying on my back in bed eating Pringles.
— Mat Johnson (@mat_johnson) March 27, 2020
14. Here’s what today looks like.
Not a bad day!
My quarantine daily schedule is just a list of desserts I want to eat.
