I often see the term 'eating healthy' on the internet. Shouldn't it be 'eating healthily'?
I think that there are many options here, because people have put these words together when they speak.
It isn't grammatically correct, as you would need to say "eating healthy _____ (something...like food)" or "healthy eating"...(eating in a healthy way).
"Eating healthy" is colloquial and is used more in spoken English. It is refers to eating healthy food etc but removes the food.
Eating healthy can be difficult.
Eating healthy at Christmas time is a challenge.
I like eating healthy.
I hope that helps.
