So You Think You Fare Well?
A recent survey found that we have a superiority complex when it comes to healthy eating.
Ever cast a judgmental eye at someone else's plate, feeling holier than thou about your salad? Well, they're likely doing the same to you.

The 1,006 participants from various demographics gave their own eating habits a full letter grade higher (B-) than what they perceived to be those of the average Americans' (a C-). Though, as we know from studies in which people significantly underestimate how much they eat, nutritional self-assessment is more difficult than it seems.
