Obese=lazy, greedy bastards?

Posted on: April 10, 2008

This article from spiked.com is actually about cooking shows, but there are several good points made:

  • Carbs are an essential part of a balanced diet, and a more efficient source of energy than protein or fat
  • Carbs do not make you obese
  • There is no “junk food,” only “junk diets”
  • Fast food is only bad for you if you eat it all the time.  Taken in moderation, it’s a delicious (subjective, but it’s the word used in the article) treat.

Unfortunately, all this good is countered by 8 little words, half a sentence: 

“…being a greedy, lazy bastard makes you obese. “

Excuse me?  I just have no words.  None.  It totally killed the positive tone of the rest of the article for me.  *sigh*
