There is an episode of the Simpsons where Homer becomes a food critic. In the lead-up to getting the job he sings:
I like pizza; I like bagels; I like hotdogs with mustard and beer. I'll eat eggplant. I could even eat a ba-a-by deer. La- la- la- la- la- la- la- la la- la- Who's that baby deer on the la-awn there?
It is in keeping with today’s post, where yesterday I did what, to me, was a very scary thing: I ate in front of the camera.Even in the realms of fashion, diet and health rears its head. Fatshion blogs and bloggers often portray an image of healthy living and eating which there is nothing wrong with, but unfortunately I have felt (and in some cases so much has it been rammed down the readers throat, that I have un-followed) that to not be seen as the negative side to fat the bells of healthy are rung too loudly.
Let me say it again: The Negative Side to Fat. How ridiculous a statement is this?! Yet one that is believed by many. Fat people are lazy – well what is so wrong with being lazy, fat or thin? Some people like to go go go and others enjoy a more sedentary pace. So what? Fat people eat too much – too much for whom? Is there an unknown ration going on, because if there is let me know and I’ll fill my plate a little less. Across the many times I, like everyone out there, have eaten around other people some of them eat more than me and others eat less. The size of their bodies have very little to do with this, I’ve observed. Fat people are unclean – oh come on now! That’s just being nasty for no reason with no basis on anything. Now I may pant a little as I reach the third floor of a flight of stairs, but don’t worry my antiperspirant and ability to shower do the job just fine.
Below is a video I made – for those who would like to skip the actual eating part I give you ample warning before I tuck in (also it is from 3.20) and instead talk a little on what I’ve touched on this post.
