    Gabrielle Deydier

    She's my hero. I couldn't get the URL to work, but she's on the Guardian website: https:theguardian.com/society/2017/sep/10/gabrielle-deydier-fat-in-france-abuse-grossophobia-book-women. Trust me, it's worth the effort to track down. PS: she's hot, too.

    Avocado Toast

    Yesterday I read that hipsters will pay upwards of $20 for a slice of toast with mashed avocado on top. Why? Avocado's flavor is so mild as to be practically non-existent; what is the attraction here?

    Whatever happened to apple pie?

    In the restaurants of America, desserts are taking a beating. If you'd like to have some sadistic fun the next time you eat out, when your server asks if you'd like dessert, say "I sure would like a piece of apple pie." That deer-in-the-headlights look you'll get is priceless (NB: This doesn't...

    How Not To Get Fat

    This is (pardon the pun) the real skinny: a tongue-in-cheek compendium of many of the recent pronouncements on "the real cause" of obesity.

    vending machines to furnish calorie count

    Your federal government at work. My favorite assertion: if only .02% of overweight adults would reduce their calorie intake by 100 calories per week, it would pay for this program. I'd love to know how they reached those figures. :rolleyes:

    Thanksgiving

    For what is supposedly a major holiday, Thanksgiving doesn't get much respect. It's not a commercial extravaganza like Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, and Halloween, and it doesn't offer an excuse to get drunk like New Year's and St. Patrick's Day. It is seated at the table next to the...

    TV Dinners

    My town now has an actual, good, authentic Italian restaurant, and I am delighted -- not only by the food, but because it's just about the only place in town where television watching is not mandatory. One by one, all the other restaurants -- not just the fast food chains -- have hung TVs from...

    50's TV Nostalgia

    Omnibus. What in the World? Captain Video. Remember them? When I saw the thread on 90's TV nostalgia, I thought, "Nostagia isn't what it used to be." Hence this thread, for those whose memories have had enough time to marinate. :)

    Turkey Ice Cream?

    Turkey cake? What do YOU do with leftover turkey? Rep will be awarded for ingenuity. :)

    Do you know beans?

    More specifically, do you know how long dried beans stay good after the container they're in has been opened? I had a really unfortunate experience with some elderly navy beans last year -- I boiled those suckers half a day and they stayed hard -- and tonight I boiled up some pintos I opened...

    selling the obesity "epidemic"

    If you have ever been skeptical of these claims: (1) that obesity is reaching epidemic proportions, (2) that it is a primary cause of death and disease, (3) that weight loss is the golden path to health and well-being for everyone, please read this article. It examines the results of over...

    weight loss and salvation

    Some years ago I read an account of a minister's wife who lost considerable weight because, in her words, "Being fat was not pleasing to the Lord." Although the U.S. may seem rabidly religious to many of our European colleagues, our trend throughout most of the twentieth century has been...

    Romance(s)

    I read a romance novel and was stunned. I read another one, just to see if it was like the first one. It was. I read a third one as a check on the first two. I do not think I am going to read a fourth one. Here's the thing: in all these books, the beautiful, tempestuous heroine (who is...

    First!

    A clergyman was visiting his sixtyish parishioner. "Tell me, Mr. Brown," he said, "Do you ever think of the hereafter?" "Oh, my, yes!" Brown answered. "I think about the hereafter all the time. Why, sometimes I go into the kitchen, or the bathroom, and then I think, 'What am I here after?'"...

    Liz raised an interesting question: what do FA's actually think about whether the partners of supersized people should encourage them to lose weight? Let's find out!

    Institutional Food

    I've heard it said that if you only read great books, you never understand what makes them great -- you need to read some crap as a basis for comparison. So I thought, "should the Foodee Board be only about good food? Don' t we need a basis for comparison, too?" Besides, don't you need the...
