Watching someone eat what type food revolts you? (Not seeking answers based on envy)

I can't stand watching anyone eat fried fish or un-toasted white bread. It's almost like I feel sicker as they consume more.

at worst I feel bad for them. Dissapointed if I know that they know better. The only thing that revolts me, is that our government is allowed to mis-dictate nutrition so poorly, that we are in this situation to begin with.

Nope - I'm merely speaking from my personal experiences around those close to me with disorded eating. It was simply my first thought, and occurred instinctively to me before I had read any of the comments. Perhaps it was an overshare? Quite a few Paleo blogs can be insular/unwelcoming. If Paleo wants to grow and become respected and mainstream, PaleoHacks needs to continue to be well-moderated. That includes avoiding the internet equivalent of jeering and throwing rotten fruit at fat people/SAD eaters/whichever target du jour.

Uberbulldog, I have flagged this question for a moderator's attention, and voted it down, as this type of subject is merely to amuse one's vanity in an immature way, and at someone else's expense.

This type of thread serves no constructive purpose.

I hope you will consider the impression such topics make on those who come here looking for information on the Paleo approach to eating and to improve their health.


For those who have not read the FAQs at this site, here is part of that page:

What kind of questions can I ask here? As long as your question is:

related to Paleolithic and/or Primal diet, exercise and lifestyle, which includes subjects like CrossFit Cholesterol and blood testing Sensitivities and allergies to gluten and other substances Supplements like Vitamin D, fish oil etc etc detailed and specific written clearly and simply of interest to at least one other person somewhere ... it is welcome here. No question is too trivial or too "newbie".

I need to note: PaleoHacks is not the place for treating symptoms that are possibly acutely life threatening. For example:

Unexplained abdominal pain. (Like, it's not something normal for you like heartburn or menstrual cramps.) Abdominal pain that gets worse over the course of several hours. Fainting. Unexplained sudden severe headache. Headache that does not go away after taking pain medication, or gets worse after several hours. Shortness of breath. Chest pain. Difficulty breathing. Changes in vision. Uncontrollable bleeding. Please look around to see if your question has already been asked (and maybe even answered!) before you ask. If you end up asking a question that has been asked before, that is OK and deliberately allowed. Other users will hopefully edit in links to related or similar questions to help future visitors find their way.

It's also perfectly fine to ask and answer your own question, but pretend you're on Jeopardy: phrase it in the form of a question.

What kind of questions should I not ask here? Avoid asking questions that are overly subjective, argumentative, or require extended discussion. This is not a discussion board nor a blog, this is a place for questions that can be answered!

Be nice. Treat others with the same respect you'd want them to treat you. We're all here to learn together. Be tolerant of others who may not know everything you know. Bring your sense of humor.

Be honest. Above all, be honest. If you see misinformation, vote it down. Insert comments indicating what, specifically, is wrong. Even better ??? edit and improve the information! Provide stronger, faster, superior answers of your own!

Use humor deftly. Boorish or sophomoric humor is discouraged.

Not only do I agree with PaleoGran, but your visceral disgust at watching someone else eat strongly reminds me of the thinking patterns associated with disordered eating.
