It's a sin: all this fat talk is becoming an unhealthy obsession
I am surrounded by fat! Well, it's actually people incessantly talking about 'fat' and honestly, it's driving me nuts.
I really noticed it a few weeks ago at dinner with friends when I found myself in the precarious position of being the only one there not in a slimming club of some sort.
As menus were read, talk swiftly turned to how many points – or 'sins' – were in each item and my fellow diners weighed up their options to see if they could 'afford' to have bread with or without a latte after dinner. As they bandied about words like treats, cheats, sins and points I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone.
