    School Food Is Making Our Children Fat

    I still remember being in high school, and how fattening the food there is. I mean, they had a salad bar so there was a healthy option, but aside from that our vegetable side was usually fries, the usual entrees would be something like pizza or burgers or mac and cheese, all made...

    Recess

    I study public health and literally most of what we talk about is obesity. I mean it makes sense because on top of it being an epidemic and one of the biggest health problems in this country, it also is a risk factor and cause for a variety of other often fatal diseases such as...

    Admitting It

    I think some people just won't admit that they really like eating as much as they can. Perhaps we should stop privileging skinniness and accept people rather than vilifying those who are fat. I like eating, and I like being fat. If I can say it, then others can, too. --HXTP
