Depends on how many hand-dipped Ghana 72% chocolate covered duck fat cooked kettle chips you eat in one sitting.

Being a foodie has nothing to do with fitness. Discriminating or adventurous appetites don't either.

I adore cooking various types of foods and I eat them all, but in moderation and I work out twice a week. I don't deny myself anything when it comes to delicious food. I'm not sure what my weight should be but I've weighed 130 pounds for the last 8 years and I'm 5'6".

Gosh, that's a good question. Colorado is hardly a foodie destination, yet we consistently rank among the country's thinnest.

In general, though, I think that the divide is urban/suburban with the urban folks being lighter (less time in the car?). Working rural people (I'm thinking farmers and ranchers) also tend toward the lighter side, perhaps because they, like urban folks, spend less time commuting and more time being active. Plus, fewer vending machines and drive-throughs to tempt one to snack all day.

I always heard it as "don't trust a restaurant that has a thin cook and a fat dishwasher"

Being a foodie isn't only an adventurous palate. It also can mean a focus on high-quality / high-flavor ingredients and cooking techniques.

I don't think it makes any difference. I attend a fair amount of events every year that most people would consider to be hardcore "foodie" events, and the attendees are no fatter or skinnier than anywhere else. It's just a normal mix of different body types.

Being a foodie means you are very interested in thinking about, planning, shopping for, preparing, talking about, posting about, and eating your next meal. I don't believe it says anything about how caloric said meal will be.

I wouldn't consider someone a foodie if they were unhealthy. That would imply whatever "foodie" knowledge they have isn't accurate.
