She was talking about women going back seconds on Thanksgiving.
On Thursday, Mayim captioned a video of herself sitting at a table saying, “I see you go back seconds.”
She wore a black T-shirt and round-rimmed glasses as she talked into the camera.
The danger! host said, “Like many women in our culture, I struggle with body dysmorphia and a lot of issues around food.”
“You bringing it up doesn’t make it any better and I’m going to enjoy seconds, yes, thank you.”
Body dysmorphia is a mental illness in which a person is very concerned about his appearance and the flaws he sees in it.
Fans loved her hit back and took to the comments to show their agreement.
“Hell ya! Let’s eat some cake together girl!!!” one wrote.
“Perfect – say it louder,” wrote another.

A third said: “Absolutely. I can’t believe some people.”
“Thanks for this,” many chimed in.
Body dysmorphia can cause people to feel anxious, especially during the holidays.
Mayim recently talked about her anxiety and how she calms it down.
She took to Instagram earlier this week and shared a video of herself relaxing at home.
Dressed in a black T-shirt and gray hoody, the The Big Bang Theory actress appeared makeup-free and wore glasses as she addressed her 4.1 million followers.
The short clip was titled, “A Few Things I Do to Calm My Anxiety. There Are More. Do I Have Any Part Of This?”
In the video, Mayim said, “Meditate at least once a day, eat chocolate, whistle incessantly,” before showing off her skills.
She also shared the video on the Instagram page for her podcast Bialik Breakdown on mental health.
Commenting on her whistle, one fan commented, “What a crisp and clear whistle!” while another said, “As a parrot, I really appreciate your excellent whistle.”
However, others admitted that whistling isn’t great for others who suffer from anxiety.
“But the whistle causes fear in the other people around,” said one of them.
Another admitted, “Ironically, listening to someone whistle is the worst thing I’ve ever done for my anxiety. I can’t stand that noise.”
Someone else joked, “Now I’m afraid of chocolate and for you to stop whistling.”
Another person added, “I think the meditation is okay! But I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I hate people who whistle, it makes me so mad hahahaha.”
And another follower claimed, “Whistling helps activate your vagus nerve!”
Other Mayim fans offered their own suggestions for how to deal with anxiety, citing dancing, sleeping, and listening to positive affirmations.
Earlier this month, Mayim faced some backlash from Jeopardy! fans for giving a “tasteless” and “morbid” clue during the celebrity spin-off.
During the episode, the celebrity Jeopardy! contestants John Michael Higgins, Wil Wheaton and Joel Kim Booster battled for a chance to advance.
Among the opening categories, there was one with the letter “A” in all comments.
But one clue turned out to be extra exciting.
It read, “In 2021, fugitive Brian Laundrie ended his days in Fla’s Myakkahatchee Creek area, home to these long and toothy critters.”
The correct answer was “What are alligators,” but fans were put off by the mere mention of the suspected killer.
“Jeopardy! just had the most absurd question I’ve ever seen in my life,” one viewer tweeted.
Another added: “What the f**k, Jeopardy!. A question from Brian Laundrie? Tasteless.”
One person said, “That Jeopardy! question where Brian Laundrie was mentioned and the answer was alligators?? Who cares, that was so… inappropriate. No need! There was no reason to mention him at all!”
While this person claimed to be mortified, “Look at Jeopardy!
“What incredibly bad taste. I’m sure her parents would be thrilled to turn on the TV to see this on a game show!?”
