Narcissists Are Filthy Inside. All narcissists need narcissistic supply, this is the main thing that they focus on. Because of this, they spend a lot of time attending to their image. They focus on the general impression that they present to people. They do not care or focus on the inside of their bodies. No one can see that, so it doesn't matter to them. It doesn't exist, or it's not important to them. It's like if a narcissist buys a house or a car, they will be more focused on what that house or car looks like on the outside.
They won't care about the interior of that house or car, unless they intend on people going inside it. They only care about their image, they only care about the general impression that they present to people. This is what people will see, this is what has the most potential to give them narcissistic supply. So they will neglect the proper care and nourishment of their bodies. It doesn't matter to them. They can't see what's going on inside them and no one else can see it, so what difference does it make? That's how they think.
Narcissists want instant gratification. They have the desire to experience pleasure or fulfillment without delay. When they want something, they want it now. They don't want to wait. Because of this, many of them will prefer to eat junk food or highly processed food rather than taking the time to prepare a healthier, more nutritional meal. They eat mostly foods that are high in saturated fats and transsaturated fats. These types of foods are very bad for the intestines and gut health.
They contain ingredients that suppress good bacteria and increase bad bacteria. This means that the narcissist has mostly bad bacteria inside them. They are filthy inside. They don't eat leafy greens, which fuel the growth of healthy gut bacteria. Which means that their gut is predominantly full of bad bacteria. Because of this, many of them end up with serious health problems, often at a young age. One of the ex narcissists had irritable bowel syndrome, another had hyperthyroidism.
A poor quality diet high in junk food is also linked to a higher risk of obesity, depression, digestive issues, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer and early death. So while the narcissist may appear to be physically attractive on the outside, all of this is going on inside them, which you don't see. Many of this could also affect you and could cause you to develop poor eating habits. They drink fizzy drinks every day, alcohol, tobacco.
All of these things can cause serious health problems and damage to their organs. I'm not saying I don't enjoy pizza or McDonald's sometimes. But this is something that narcissists do every day. Every day, they eat junk food. It destroys the good bacteria in their bodies and promotes the growth of bad bacteria. They are rotting away from the inside. Narcissists have magical thinking. They believe that their thoughts or desires will influence the external world.
They believe that they are the exception or that while it may not be good for other people to do what they do, it is ok for them to do it. Because of this, they don't consider the consequences. They don't consider the effects of their poor eating habits. They believe that as long as they think it's ok for them to do it, it doesn't matter what anyone else says.
So even when they develop serious health problems and the doctor tells them to improve their diet, they still believe in their minds that it won't affect them. Or they are just too lazy to change. Narcissists don't want to change or improve anything in their lives. They expect the laws of life to change or adapt to however they want it to be, or whatever benefits them. Narcissists are filthy inside. The narcissist may appear clean or healthy on the outside. But it is the inside that really matters. And their insides are dirty, disgusting, deteriorating.
However, their insides look, is what will soon affect their appearance on the outside. Most often, they will have no desire to change, just like with any of their other dysfunctional behaviors. Even if they do change for a short period of time, it will only be for narcissistic supply or to get something out of you and then they will soon go back to how they usually are.
