History and Origins of National Eat What You Want Day

National Eat What You Want Day traces its origins back to the early 2000s when it was first proposed by Thomas and Ruth Roy, self-proclaimed foodies from the United States.

They believed that people should have one day a year where they could set aside dietary restrictions and savor the food they truly desire.

Their idea quickly picked up steam and National Eat What You Want Day has since become a beloved annual tradition celebrated by food enthusiasts worldwide.
