“No one wants to hear about your diet. Just eat your salad and be sad”

"No one wants to hear about your diet. Just eat your lettuce/salad and be sad” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “People don’t want to hear about your diet, Just shut up, eat your lettuce, and be sad” is a line from the American comedy television series on MTV called Girl Code, on the episode “Dieting, Vacations, Neediness, Watching Sports” that aired on May 19, 2013. The quote is from actress and writer Nicole Byer.

“Lettuce” is often changed to “salad.” “No one wants to hear about your diet just eat your salad and be sad” was posted on Twitter on May 19, 2013.

“People don’t want to hear about your diet. Just shut up, eat your lettuce, and be sad.” – Nicole Byer

13 February 2016, Townsville (Queensland) Bulletin, “No Sweat, I’ll sip Sauv Blanc” by Jess Steele, pg. 11:
SAVE ME FROM THE 12-WEEK CHALLENGE. That’s ALL they talk about! How many grams of fat or salt or sugar or whatever is on their plates, how they “smashed” a workout session, then they judge me for eating a rather large, delicious piece of Milo cheesecake (not sugar free, apparently?) I just want to say, shut UP—eat your salad and be sad.

10 December 2016, Buffalo (NY) News, “Vidler’s vintage variety: At the sprawling five-and-dime, you’ll find toys, games, gadgets and so much else” by Mary Kunz Goldman, pg. C25:
Already in her basket was a big tin sign reading “Nobody Wants To Hear About Your Diet. Just Shut Up, Eat Your Lettuce and Be Sad.”
