No, not at all . . . the issues is chronic inflammation and the deleterious effects of grain-based, high-sugar diets over months, years, and decades; not a snickers and a coke on your birthday. I had a coke this week. Granted, it was my first coke in a few months, but I'm not some amish nazi OCD zealot with an eating disorder. I just know I don't recover as well or perform as well when my diet slips, and that slips in the diet make future slips/cravings more likely and intense, and I've become accustomed to another path. But, treating the seratonin receptors in my brain to cheescake or a pot brownie on NYE isn't like some mortal fucking sin or something. I'm not in a figure pageant next month. I just want to be healthy, disease-free, and squat the goddamn world.
One of the more interesting topics that arises in this discussion, though, is the role our government-subsidized industries play in the health problems and obesity epidemic in America. We actively fund the production of corn-fed beef and dairy as well as grains and cheap sugars with taxpayer dollars, build a food pyramid around it, pump it into schools, and then build up an entire pharmasutical industry with bypasses and statin drugs around the effects of living like that for 60 years (inflammed arteries clog with cholesterol - but cholesterol is NOT the problem dispite what they've been telling you for 30 years).
