Eating healthy can sometimes be difficult, especially for K-Pop idols. So many things can get in the way of them trying to stick to a sustainable diet, such as overwhelmingly busy schedules and pressure from their companies to gain or lose weight with… ‘less conventional’ methods.
Because of this, MELODYs were very happy for BTOB‘s Peniel when he shared an image of an amazingly organized plate with the caption, “trying to eat healthy again” last month. With two juicy burger patties along with an assortment of cooked vegetables, Peniel’s meal not only looked tasty, but quite nutritious as well!
Unfortunately for Peniel and many others that have tried before him, preparing multiple unique dishes that are completely made up of ‘good’ ingredients every day is actually really hard to do! Sometimes ‘alternative’ recipes can turn out kind of gross, and others you just can’t get rid of that craving for some Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
On July 12, Peniel took to Twitter and voiced his thoughts on the matter with a single question in both English and Korean:
Why does healthy food taste so bad, and unhealthy food taste so good?! 🤔
왜 건강한 음식은 맛 없고 맛있는 음식은 다 건강에 안 좋을까? 🤔

So, it didn’t come as too much of a surprise when Peniel shared an image of a beautiful brownie topped with two scoops of vanilla ice cream on July 15 and the caption, “Lol… try to eat healthy my a**.”
While eating healthy is a good habit, there is absolutely no problem with eating fun foods that you love every once in a while. As the saying goes, it’s okay “in moderation” – and MELODYs seem to agree!
Lots of fans love how honest Peniel is about his lifestyle, and have made sure to tell him so.
I still had a healthy breakfast?! Does that count ?! lol
