International NO DIET Day

06 May

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –


May 6, 2013 is International No DIEt Day – yes this is a day that I think me and the pig can definitely enjoy!  This day encourages everyone to appreciate the bodies they have and that we all come in different shapes and sizes.  There is no ‘right’ shape or size to be happy.  If you are watching what you eat, take today as a holiday and excuse for being a no diet day.  Enjoy my friends!

Did you know that International No Diet Day was created by Mary Evans Young in 1992?  She was the director of “Diet Breakers”.  She personally experienced anorexia and worked to help people appreciate themselves for what they are and to appreciate the body they have.

    I love this holiday. Mom says I gained 2 pounds. I say, “Give me some treats!” No luck. I’m on treat restriction. …..until today!!! Yay!

    Love and licks,

    Diets don’t work anyway, so why not?

      This is true. DIEts are evil words – awful word it is. I look at it as a change in living… yeah that sounds much more pleasant. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        I’d say yes in a heartbeat, but my two purr things are both shaking their heads. They don’t want to divide the attention up anymore than it already is…

    No diet day should be every day – unless you are allergic against some kind of food, than every day has to be diet day, unfortunately.

    • PigLove

      05/07/2015 at 10:00 am

      I agree 100% my friend. I would absolutely LOVE every day to be a no-DIEt day. My mom’s butt thinks so too – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. Don’t tell her I said that okay. XOXO – Bacon
