We love combing through stock photos, because we always ending up stumbling across some hilarious gems and weird recurring themes in the stock photo arsenal. (Remember the “women laughing alone with salad” trend?)
Here are a few of the funniest fitness and nutrition stock photos we’ve found of people who seem a little bit confused about this whole healthy living thing.
This Woman Doing Some Light Yoga… on Her Desk… in Stilettos
Hello, HR? I need to schedule a meeting about my cube-mate.
Whatever This Weird Trend Is
We’ve been seeing this everywhere — people in stock photos holding the “okay” symbol over their eye. We’re thinking it might be the universal hand gesture for “these raw veggies are okay, and I swear I did not just DoorDash a pepperoni pizza.”
This Guy Sprinkling Olives on His Bread
Why bother making a delicious tapenade when you can just take the salt bae approach and drop some olives on a slice of bread?
These Romantic Couples Cooking
When we’re wielding a sharp knife or a hot skillet, give us some personal space, please. Also, dumping salt in your partner’s pot while they’re cooking should be legal grounds for divorce.
This Guy We’re Supposed to Believe Is a Fitness Newb
You’re not fooling anyone, dude. We can see those veins popping on your forearms. (Also, what’s with the nerd glasses? Are we in a 1986 comedy flick?)
This Bold Choice in Workout Gear
We usually opt for moisture-wicking fabrics and, you know, pants. But you do you.
This Man Drinking Coffee in a Totally Normal Way
“I’ll take a cold brew, almond milk, one pump of caramel, and does anyone here know how to fix a dislocated hip?”
This Extremely Forgetful Woman
If you need a sticky note on your face to remind you that you have kids, it’s safe to say you’re trying to juggle too much. Maybe take a spa day?
This Soft Pretzel Living Its #BestLife
Are they going to eat that pretzel, or are they just taking it on a sightseeing tour of Europe? Maybe this is a new strategy for avoiding the usual vacation calorie binge — just hang out with your snacks instead of actually eating them.
This Woman Making Some Difficult Decisions
We realize this is supposed to represent the challenge of balancing cravings with healthy eating goals, but… what’s with the lettuce sandwich and donuts on a Frisbee? Is anybody actually craving that?
Men Sneaking Up on Food
Hey, guys, can you just go ahead and eat your food? You’re making this dinner date really awkward. (Besides, there’s nothing wrong with an occasional cheat meal.)
These Women Eating Pizza in Sports Bras
At first, this photo didn’t strike us as being weird. Friends eating pizza — totally relatable! But wait — why are they wearing sports bras to a restaurant? Did they get a sudden craving for a whole pizza in the middle of their workout? Why aren’t they sweating? Who eats pizza with a fork?! So many questions.
Whatever Nonsense Is Going On Here
The stock photo caption is “Fitness Coach Motivating His Client on Vacation.” Oh, is that what’s happening?
This Woman Casually Checking Her Phone
This is how we’ll be dialing in to every video conference call from now on.
These Workout Buddies Eating a Full Brunch at the Gym
We can get behind the banana — it’s a great pre-workout snack — but we’re pretty sure you’re not supposed to bring a full salad onto the cardio machines. Did he stash some croutons and vinaigrette in his gym bag?
This Unexpected Plot Twist
They traded meals! And so far nobody has taken a bite of anything. We sure hope no one’s waiting to get on that StairMaster.
Okay, so this has nothing to do with fitness or nutrition, but it came up while we were searching for snack photos awhile back, and it would be wrong not to share it.
