  • ​Soda Madness

    ​Fat people drink a lot of soda. It is an amazing madness to want everything sweet. And cold, no less, in the middle of winter! On Christmas Eve I stood in a long line at the grocery store just before closing time. In front of me in the line stood a morbidly obese man and his morbidly obese child, in the store for the sole purpose of buying two liters of diet soda. Stupid.

    From my office window I watch SUV after SUV climbing the hill to the Checkers, the fat drivers buying burgers, fries and big sodas with ice. There is snow on the ground! Sodas with ice? Immediately behind Checkers is Muldoon's, a good restaurant. For the time the Checker people spent waiting in their cars, they could have had a hot healthy meal on a dark plate in a warm room at Muldoon's and talked to people. But they prefer to sit in their cars than to associate with the human race. Stupid. Stupid. And sad.

    In the morning after delivering the First Visit Speech to new patients, I often give them their first half-dose of phentermine, a Prozac.and a glass of water to wash it down. The fat patients toss down the pills, sip the water, frown and hand back the glass still full. You see what's going on; they are not used to drinking any liquid other than soda. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

    When people bring their kids with them, the kids look around my cluttered office and spot the Coke can on the desk, which I use in demonstrations. The kids' eyes light up. The boys march over and grab the can. The girls ask their mother first. But no amount of talk by the mother about drinking water and eating boiled chicken & broccoli can distract me from the true story the kids' behavior tells.

    You may have a reasonable-size soda with your meal if that's what you want; but you must not drink sodas of any type between means. You need to let the insulin level go down between meals. Diet soda is worse than regular soda because it raises insulin more than regular soda does. Insulin is the switch that tells your body to store fat. Calories don't matter. Insulin does. Bloomberg's initiative in New York City will make people fatter, because he put no restrictions on diet soda.
