ONION LOGIC: People who are fat choose to be fat because of what they eat. If they just put that candy bar down instead of shoving it their face, they could be thin. Likewise, people with anorexia could be healthy if they would just eat something and people with bulimia could be healthy if they just didn’t throw up. Problem solved!

It would be great if we could just eat what we wanted when we wanted to, wouldn’t it? It’d be great if we didn’t feel compelled to eat a bowl of ice cream after a rough day at work, or skip a meal because we felt like our jeans were too tight that morning. It’s not that simple, though. And that’s not even getting into the fact that some people are just at a genetic disadvantage when it comes to weight. Why does Gerg feel the need to oversimplify things and make it seem as though his opinion is the one absolute truth?
