You know what?

fuck it.

I'm going to eat whatever the hell I want to eat. Last night, for example, I had a TGI Fridays bacon cheeseburger, and the day before that I ate four cheese rotini, and the day before that I had leftover Chinese food (Hunan chicken).

fuck it, ya'll. I eat what I like. And I work out. A lot. Like, up to eight hours a week. So, again, I say fuck it.

I'm sorry, how is it surprising that Chinese restaurant food is bad for you?

Oh, it's not surprising. I've felt my heart skip due to the sodium content of some Chinese food I've eaten. But, I still enjoy it. I guess the news item just capped a week of news telling me everything I do and enjoy is bad for me. Burn out, I suppose.

I used to eat Chinese food quite often when I was single. I always left the restaurant with a belly ache. Didn't understand why, though some have since told me that it was the MSG.

Today I work for an employer that has a whole department consisting of around 36 Asians, nearly all of whom are thin, some almost unhealthily so. They eat Chinese food all the time and never seem to have any health problems.

I'd say that it's more to do with Americans unaccustomed to the Asian diet.

you know, choosing what you eat isn't just about whether or not it will make you fat. working out 8 hours a week might keep you abalicious, but it doesn't do much to prevent colon cancer. i'm just saying. see: comment on olestra pringles.

And you could also eat apples and broccoli all your life and STILL get colon cancer. It's pretty obvious to me that much of what I eat and drink probably has potential health consequences. But I eat and drink them anyway because I enjoy them. I don't enjoy apples, or most fruit for that matter. I'm not going to force myself to eat stuff I don't like, simply because there's a 1 percent chance it may possibly help stave off cancer, but maybe not.
