“CHOW^TM contained spun, plaited, and woven protein molecules, capped and coded, carefully designed to be ignored by even the most ravenous digestive tract enzymes; no-cal sweeteners; mineral oils replacing vegetable oils; fibrous materials, colorings, and flavorings.

We are becoming a nation of orthorexics: people with an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating.”
Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

“If I don't eat junk, I don't gain weight.”
