Watch Joe Bastianich & Gail Simmons Debate the 'Dangers' of Food Porn on Dr. Oz

New, 7 comments

Television health troll Dr. Oz thinks food porn is making everyone fat, so he had Top Chef judge Gail Simmons, restaurateur/MasterChef judge Joe Bastianich, and blogger Amanda Simpson on his show to talk about it. All three of them are convinced that food porn does not in fact make you fat, prompting Oz to bring out someone he "believe[s] to be a victim of food porn": a woman who is only identified as Mona, who apparently spends 6-8 hours a day looking at food porn and has gained 20 pounds over the past two years. Oh, and also she owns a cupcake business, which apparently has nothing to do with it? Anyway, Joe Bastianich comes out in favor of food porn as an American right: "The first amendment defends S&M, but it also defends double cheeseburgers with bacon." Photos of double cheeseburgers with bacon, the American way.
