I've noticed a lot of blogs and twitters (yeah I'm cool like that) linking to the Web site This Is Why You're Fat. While I commend TIWYF for pictures that raise cholesterol just looking at them, I was disappointed that it really is just food porn. And not attractive food porn.
My personal definition of food porn is "a picture of an edible item meant to titillate, in which the text is secondary." Because TIWYF contains virtually no text, it qualifies. That's why I am happier to recommend the wordy yet still-as-gross cousin Super Sized Meals.
You'll notice that Super Sized Meals and TIWYF share a lot of
similar pictures. While this was the only picture of a mega Oreo on
Super Sized Meals went through the trouble of telling readers this was
36 double-stuffed Oreos and that the man used a cheese grater to create
the monstrosity. Super Sized Meal's picture is actually a time line:
it also focuses on smaller stories too. In other words, if you're one
of those people who actually subscribes to Playboy for the articles,
Super Sized Meals is your Web site, not This is Why You're Fat.
