...obesity isnít caused by those who adore food. People tend not to put on weight through eating meals. Iíd say itís people who eat non-stop.

When poets ó write about food it is usually celebratory. Food as the thing-in-itself, but also the thoughtful preparation of meals, the serving of meals, meals communally shared: a sense of the sacred in the profane.

Joyce Carol Oates

Actually, as a real young child, I was fairly thin, pretty active, but I think ultimately what started causing me to gain weight was I was socially awkward and the lack of having a lot of friends back then caused me to sort of turn to food more and more. And it just started taking more and more food to fill me up. And unfortunately, as I started eating more and more, I stopped moving as well, stopped being active. And those two things together are what eventually cause me to be 425 pounds.

Jared Fogle

Good food and good eating are about risk. Every once in a while an oyster, for instance, will make you sick to your stomach. Does this mean you should stop eating oysters? No way. The more exotic the food, the more adventurous the serious eater, the higher the likelihood of later discomfort. Iím not going to deny myself the pleasures of morcilla sausage, or sashimi, or even ropa vieja at the local Cuban joint just because sometimes I feel bad a few hours after Iíve eaten them.

Anthony Bourdain

Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself.

Anthony Bourdain

...Instead of taking the 'I'm cool, I hope you adore me' path (with my music), I chose the path of how to connect. I think that's the reason a lot of people feel a deeper connection with our band than other bands, and I also feel that's why people polarize on us. If you don't get it, it seems preposterous; if you do get it, it's really heavy -- it has a weight to it.
