What I Read Wednesday: Hey Fatty


Orange and Cross Section by Fir0002 of Flagstaffotos

Well that got your attention, didn’t it?

If you’re one of the 55% of Americans who are overweight or obese reading this, I apologize.  I didn’t mean to be offensive.  I just meant to get you over here.  It worked though, right?

If you’re one of the 45% of Americans who are normal or under weight, I bet you came to point and laugh at the fat kid you thought I was talking to.  Surprise.  No one to shame but yourself.

Now I – or, more correctly, Dr. Robert Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, and author of the book Fat Chance – is going to learn you about some weighty issues.  To indulge in this calorie-free lesson, click on over to A Fallacy of Biblical Proportions on the Science Friday Blog.

Then toss your soda, toss your OJ, and go have an orange.

    I don’t drink soda and I don’t drink OJ. I will look at the oranges in the future.
    I like fiber; I hope that counts.

      At only about 80cal a pop, an orange is a good way to quench a sweet tooth and snag some vitamins pro bono. (Though not a whole of fiber…..) And fiber – totally counts.

Keep it clean, keep it respectful, or keep away.
