Cheat Day Culture

A sub-segment of foodies looks to hyper-indulge in a conscious way

Implications - Though eating indulgently is sometimes seen as a result of lack of food education, foodie consumers who see indulgence as an earned right approach not only consume calorie-laden food, but more extreme versions than their non-self aware counterparts. This points to a new form of health movement that is less aspirational and more lighthearted.
