Stop what you're doing and read this.
I found it at just the right time, when my frustration with the Food Wars had reached critical mass and I was thinking about swearing off reading/watching/listening to anything diet and nutrition related ever, ever again. The author is local (for me anyway) and now in danger of being stalked.
By the way, it was this piece (and the subsequent comments) that drove me to the edge.
UPDATE: Turns out that the my hero the author just relocated to Las Vegas. It's just as well.
