Should We Accept Fat Acceptance?

Is it okay to be fat? The Fat Acceptance movement seems to think so. The movement essentially promotes accepting a larger body size and not having to conform to the high beauty standards of a vain society. Seems innocent enough, right? And let me just say- for the most part, I agree. If you’re big, […]

You’re Going to Want to Read This One…

I’ve waited so long to be able to say this. I’ve worked incredibly hard every day. This last month has been one of the hardest I’ve ever had. I’ve had to watch while family and friends devoured food that I hadn’t ever realized I had taken for granted. I have faced some of the strongest […]

Making Permanent Change

Shortly after my last post, my mother took me to a weight loss clinic where I was evaluated by a team of experts trained to withstand the gag reflex brought about by being in the presence of a topless fatass such as myself. I found out that while I am overall pretty healthy, my overall […]

The Summer of Michael!!!

Listen up people! I’m gonna be straight with you. I went to college and have around 40 more pounds of “me” to show for it. Here’s the facts… My degree is officially “Molecular and Cellular Biology” with an emphasis in Infectious Disease & Immunity as well as Microbiology. I get very little sleep. My GPA is […]

Coffee: A Field Guide

Do you ever find yourself at a McDonald’s, Starbucks, Caribou, or other coffeemonger and find yourself asking “what’s the difference between a latte and a cappuccino?” Well, to be honest very, very little. It seems as though the general rule of thumb is the more exotic it sounds, the more they’ll charge you for it. […]

Hipsters and Food: A Deadly Combination

When I see a man or a woman- actually scratch that, when I see a woman taking pictures of her food, it takes all the self-restraint I can muster not to smash her face in the meal and Instagram a photo of it. Hipsters and food are a match made in hell and the fruits […]

Sandwiches, a Love Story. Also Drinks

When I bury my meaty jowls into the warm embrace of a well-constructed sandwich, I’m taken to a special place in my mind. A safe place free of worry, trouble, or strife. A happy place. Have you ever eaten something and thought “wow, I could eat this every day for the rest of my life and […]

Fast Food Restaurant Review- McDonald’s Schaumburg

Upon my arrival to the establishment, the first thing to catch my attention was that there was no waiter on duty. I approached the counter and was greeted by a short gentlemen who’s name tag read “Carlos”. The name tag also labeled him as the restaurant “manger”. What an odd way of saying executive chef. […]

The Sharing Size: Bigger Servings for Bigger People

Okay, I’ll admit. I’m sitting next to the empty wrapper of a “Sharing Size” bag of M&M’s. But come on, when they first came out did anyone really think “Gee wiz, now I can finally share my delicious bag of candy with all my friends!” No. You didn’t. You thought “More fatty fuel for fatty.” I know […]

The State of the Sag- August 2012

Let me just preface this by saying, nobody cringe at the self-depreciating humor. It’s the only way I keep my ego in check. Now, I’ve been trying out a few new ways to lose weight and for the most part it’s been working. Unfortunately it looks like it’s too little too late. I recently went […]
