FTA: You'll shed pounds and walk away feeling better about your meal--and your body.

By "walk away" I think they meant this:

Dear Fat Author,

Calories are not the be all, end all of how we gain weight, and/or lose it. It is not the only marker to look at when attempting to eat 'healthy'. You can resume writing your next article, 'The Least Harmful Chemicals to Huff'.

We take only the freshest organic Deer bait, gently score and deep-fat fry, it just like gramma used to!

Salsa is now America's most popular condiment (take that, ketchup).

You know why? Because people like to say "salsa."

jaylectricity: Fat people don't have to sulk. We're the majority now. Your skinny ass is the weird one.


Not for long... at the rate you folks are dropping.

Don't get me wrong.. I don't exercise or anything.. I just have a healthy metabolism and stay pretty active. I smoke and drink, and do all sorts of unhealthy things... but if I feel fat, I cut the Coke from my mixed drinks, or ask for no cheese on my burger.

I at least want to be able to fit through the door before I collapse into eternity.

Beauf: if you measure intake in calories rather than grams you would be better off with a certain number of calories in fat than HFC


The point is, people often eat until they feel full, very few people eat meals based on calories. Eating fat laden calories also puts undue stress on the body, as outlined in the book "Thrive" by Brendan Braizer. The fact remains, ingesting fat, especially saturated fat, is the direct cause of heart disease, the #1 killer in America. You are never better off getting calories from fat over non fat sources.

Last month I ate at a Long John Silver's for the first time since I was a young child. Had to be 30 years, or close to it. I was basically a blank slate, since I didn't remember anything about the menu other than vague concepts of "fish" and "hush puppies."

Upon tasting the fare, I determined that this is a restaurant whose entire business model appears to be trying to answer the question, "What happens if we deep-fry the color white?"

I have pretty low standards if I'm eating out. I'll eat most anything from anywhere, and not worry about it too much (I eat well at home and get plenty of exercise). If I get something from a fast food joint, all I want is for it to be filling and reasonably tasty. LJS is, without a doubt, the most flavorless pile of failure I have ever had at any restaurant of any type. The breading on the fish even managed to negate the acidic tang from the malt vinegar. How the fark do you do that? That's like adding negative flavor.

Hebalo: pieterh: You can eat as much butter, cheese, bread (brown is better, fibre is good), meat, salt, fish, vegetables as you want, you will *not* get fat nor high cholesterol.

One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just DOESN'T belong.

Fibre is great, but bread is lousy delivery vehicle for it.


Shhh... Quiet now... The more of them that die the sooner we can claim their treasures

WhippingBoy: I hate articles like this. The morbos will be chundering down all of these "healthy" items which will then "prove" that they're incapable of losing weight because they're eating "healthy" but still gaining weight.


As long as they drink a Diet Coke with it, they'll be fine.

Hebalo: List doesn't show Carb amounts, and thus fails. Fat don't make you fat, bread makes you fat.


Eating fat doesn't make you fat? What flavour kool-aid have you been drinking?

20 surprisingly healthy restaurant foods
By the Editors of Men's Health

Sesame Ginger Chicken Dumplings
- 1,801 mg sodium


I don't subscribe to Men's Health and I'm pretty sure that I won't now. Considering that 1800 more than the recommended daily intake of sodium, I'm fairly certain saying that it's not health, and it's just for the appetizer.

Yes, it's probably better than a deep fried salt-lick, but it's still not healthy.
