fucking rich white people laughing at how poverty is some diet they should try
not only is this fucking disgusting bc they’re laughing about ppl who can not afford food like haha it’s fine but it’s also utter bullshit fasting myths that I used to believe when I seriously struggled with my eating disorder.
now $133 dollars can’t even buy 2 weeks of groceries - which means ppl would have to be scrimping and saving to maybe afford one small meal a day - if that.
If you don’t eat for 12 hours your metabolic rate drops 40 percent and goes into storage mode bc it’s sensing famine.
now lets talk about how the foods that ppl on this budget can usually afford - cheap not exactly healthy foods. even if a person used all that money to buy expensive health food (which would maybe afford them a week at most of meals) they’d still be storing all of it due to their metabolism being out of whack.
so all in all they’d more likely than not gain weight and ppl would attack them with for being fat and lazy and rant about the “obesity epidemic”
Andrea Tantaros is not only being a massive classist asshole but contributing to the uneducated and dangerous ideas that help fuel eating disorders.
Those presenters don’t even need any money for food, because they should only be allowed to eat shit.
