Are you an "extreme eater" and worshipper of "food porn"?

Asked by Cruiser (34962 points ) November 19th, 2010

“It’s food porn .” That’s what the Center for Science in the Public Interest dubbed the 1,030-calorie, deep-fried Lasagna Fritta appetizer at the Olive Garden. ”

Other restaurants routinely serve caloric monstrosities that in one serving give you almost all your daily calorie requirements and way more salt than is even close to healthy.

The Center publishes it’s extreme eating awards list and I love to eat food but when I see it in the context of how over the top these meals are I cringe and go back to enjoying my salad for lunch. Although the 1,670 calories Chocolate Tower Trouble Cake just might be worth a few extra hours on the bike path!!

Are you an extreme eater? Do you work it off or nosh away and not worry over it??

I saw the words food porn and immediately got all excited. I was thinking I’m not worthy. Your details killed my food erection. No, I’m pretty good about what I eat.

I am trying to control it, but I consider eating a test of my masculinity some times. It’s a personal problem, I know.

I get a large pizza, and look at it as a challenge. I eat the whole thing, refusing to let the pizza beat me. Otherwise, I feel like a food wuss.

My…personal…shame…

i hate stuff like that. you know its going to make you feel like shit even before you eat it. as good as it might taste, there are plenty other foods that taste just as good and won’t make you feel like hell for 4 hours afterwards. not worth it.

I love the man vs. food guy, I would totally marry him just for his eating abilities alone.

Not at all. I don’t love food the way that so many people seem to. I eat. There are certain foods that I really like a lot more than others.. but I don’t have a passion for food. Would I eat something terrible for me? Sure. I don’t usually make a point of it, though.

@lucillelucillelucille I’ll bring over some bacon wrapped deep fried donuts and we can make it a party.

@Adirondackwannabe -Sounds great! Can I get that with a sprinkling of Captain Crunch?

xxii's avatar

Nope. When I think of food porn, I think of sites like these:
http://cakepron.tumblr.com/
http://veganfeast.tumblr.com/
I love looking at good food photography.

Delicious, low-cal foods make my world go round because they let me eat all day. :D

@Lightlyseared No worshipping food then?? Just sacrifices to the Gods of charcoal perhaps??

@Cruiser God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers?

I’m a worshipper of prime rib. And Ranch dressing, homemade. And corn chowder and lots of things. But in the summer? Not so much.—and turkey dressing, pimiento cheese, hot apple pie,
Cool Whip with my pumpkin pie, hot fudge sundaes…..I dive right in then jump on the rebonder later.

downtide's avatar

I love food, but not like that. I love good food, and definitely not in quantities that would make me feel like puking.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

No. Super complicated meant-to-be-outrageous extravaganza meals scare me. Why must I be trained to salivate over platters of mediocre quality shrimps offered in every shape and form possible from a frozen food bag and think it’s special?

Cruiser's avatar

@Aster Can I join your church??

@Neizvestnaya been to a wedding lately eh??
