Local fat bitch coming through to remind you that calories are fairly arbitrary numbers calculated by a 19th century guy who literally set foods on fire to heat water & decided that was how your body works, and the scale is nothing but a reflection of how much gravity is working on your mass in that given moment
@Cathymarinara a measure of food energy dating from a time when we knew exactly nothing about the chemistry of cellular metabolism
@TrannyOakley exactly! You might as well be measuring my skull to tell me what my criminal-class deviant ass should be eating 🙄
@Cathymarinara that toot reads like a jumbled page from a Genet novel; deviant criminal ass eating
@TrannyOakley hahahahaha yes! our lady of the salads
I'm looking at the original post for this and thinking about how only Mastodon can make this progression
Look to the posters.
Counting calories is the most made-up way to eat less BUT WITH MATH. I feel so, so fortunate that I hadn’t been pulled into diet culture until age 37 because I just know that I would have developed even more food issues than I already have.
This stuff is black magic, the *actually* bad kind.
@Cathymarinara And to top it all off, our bodies react differently to calories from different foods. So while a "calorie is a calorie" is technically true, it damn sure ain't the whole picture.
