* Diabetics will order fast food and then get a diet soda, since the carbs in the food are usually much lower on the glycemic index than the carbs in regular soda. This troper's husband is often served regular soda, either by mistake or because people think he's being silly to order diet soda with unhealthy food.

** While at an ice cream parlor, Homer is on his health-kick, so he orders a low-fat vanilla topped with a bunch of [[BlandNameProduct bland-named junk food and candy products]].
** In an early episode Homer goes on a diet, so Marge introduces him to rice cakes. She tells him they're only 35 calories a piece, but he can add a little something for flavour. Homer piles the cake high with toppings and then says "mmm, only 35 calories!"
** When Homer first meets the wide pride advocates, they have a table with several fattening foods and cans of Diet Coke.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Cyborg does this at an entirely meat based restaurant. He orders multiple ''combo meals'' in rapid succession, then stops and asks for a diet soda. But when told they do not have soda (only meat), he simply asks for a cup of meat juice. Being part cyborg as well as in shape makes this lesser than most examples.

Despite being a staple joke on obesity and hypocrisy (especially the trusted [[{{Eagleland}} "Americans are fatasses"]] routine), it happens in RealLife for various legitimate reasons. Diabetics may not be concerned about their intake of savories but must watch their sugars. Some people just ''prefer'' the taste of diet sodas (Diet Coke, for instance, is an entirely different formula from Coke Classic.) Finally, even from the much-mocked calorie intake standpoint it actually does make sense-- a thousand calorie gut bomb with a diet soda may be silly on its face, but it's [[LesserOfTwoEvils still relatively better]] than a twelve-hundred calorie meal with a regular soft drink! (Soda averages 150 to 200 calories; a heavy soda drinker can see a tremendous benefit from cutting those calories, as soft drinks are the biggest source of sucrose and fructose in fast food.)

One early ''Comicbook/{{Rocky}}'' strip strip uses this joke, with a horrified Rocky and Tommy witnessing a rather large man with greasy hair ordering a hot dog wrap from a street food vendor, but with cheeseburgers ''as well as hot dogs'', mashed potatoes, fried onions and french fries with the oil still on them... and a Pepsi Light. The vendor describes the following scene as watching a komodo dragon devour a pig.
