We love salt, fat and sugar. We’re hard-wired to go for those flavors. They trip our dopamine networks, which are our craving networks.
When I was growing up, if there was a Young Adult section of my town’s library, I missed it. I wandered right from ‘The Babysitter’s Club’ over to Stephen King. His books were big and fat and they seemed important. I eventually worked my way through most of the shelf, but ‘It’ is the one that stuck with me.
I’m sure that my father becoming seriously ill when I was 14 had a lot to do with my going from chubby to fat.

It’s really irrelevant, but I wouldn’t want to be stick thin. It’s better to have bit of fat on your face when you get older.
When I started out as a model, I took things for granted. Because I bagged work thanks to my looks, I didn’t give my body any importance. I was a couch potato who’d eat anything. Then, in 2005, a tabloid ran a story calling me fat. I thought, ‘I’m famous. How can I be fat?’ It was a slap. I decided to get fit.
People in this country haven’t stopped hating fat people, but they’ve become more kind to me, since in our culture, even though we hate our fat people, we love our celebrities even more.

We live in a culture that venerates scores. We affix numbers to how much fat is in our mochachinos, how quickly our telephones suck information from the air, how much pain we’re in. Reading, too, has become a skill to quantifiably assess.
I do cook a lot for myself. I tend to cook from scratch, a lot of stews and things, lots of beans, because beans have got lots of protein in them but not fat. I am partial to a bit of cheese – I try to limit myself in my cheese intake, but I do enjoy a good smelly cheese. Stinking Bishop is a good one.
Justin Timberlake is the single most talented human being I’ve ever met in my life, and it sickens me. He is, like, 12 years old or something! He has 0 percent body fat, he is musically gifted, he has a great ear for accents, and he is hilarious.
Cholesterol – which you get from eating too much of the wrong kind of fat – doesn’t just help clog arteries in the brain, it may also help to seed the amyloid plaques that riddle the brain tissue of Alzheimer’s victims.
I come from a family that loves to eat, not exercise. Being fat made even walking hard.
After ‘Muriel’s Wedding,’ I first went to America, and I was sent all these scripts about fat girls overcoming hurdles. Something in me knew not to go down that road, even if it was a good script.

Independent filmmaking burns off a lot of storytelling fat.
I have a very strict philosophy that if you’re not working out, you’re getting fat.
I still remember the way children used to tease me. Fat people are really lonely people. In school, girls would be my friends, but guys would generally keep away. A lot of insecurity stems from there. But if you have a strong base, nothing can shake you.
People who wear fur smell like a wet dog if they’re in the rain. And they look fat and gross.
I love fat people. Every fat person says it’s not their fault, that they have gland trouble. You know which gland? The saliva gland.
I always used to wonder why American actors were getting fat, then I made a U.S. movie. I’m seeing all the food every day, and there’s lots of waiting around because making an American movie is very slow.
I was known for being talented, but I was still the fat girl. And it wasn’t what people were looking for. There’s a lot that you hear. There’s a lot of cruelty out there. Some of it comes from the executive offices. It comes from other artists at times. It was a very difficult thing to overcome.
I would like to be more fit, but I don’t think I will put on fat or gain weight for movie roles. I am not going to do that.
My doctor told me that I’m old, fat, and ugly, but none of those things is going to kill me immediately.

You’re never too fat for a new purse.
I like to think, personally, that Shaq got scared. He saw the six-pack and realized if he faced me at WrestleMania, he was going to be Fat Shaq.
You know as far as diet goes, for a while I was really obsessed with counting fat grams along with the rest of the world.
I’ve been fat my whole life and pretended I don’t mind. But I do mind. It’s really stupid that I’ve gone on being greedy and fat.
When I was a kid, I was fat, and I was teased mercilessly. But once I grew up and got out of my unhealthy relationship with food, for the most part I’ve had a very healthy view. If I ever find myself getting worried about how I’ll look on the red carpet, I’ll take a step back and look at what’s really going on inside.
Of course there is no denying the possible pleasure of holing up with a fat, slow-moving, mediocre novel; still, we all know that we can indulge ourselves in that fashion only so much. In the end, we read not for reading’s sake, but to learn.
Obviously, with a CGI character, you’re building a character in much the same way as a real creature is built. You build the bones, the skeletons, the muscles. You put layers of fat on. You put a layer of skin on which has to have a translucency, depending on what the character is.
I was called the girl that was ‘pretty for a big girl,’ ‘the fat model.’
Back in the ’60s and ’70s, data were scarce, and while analysts knew that companies with fat gross margins lagged those with thin gross margins early in bull markets – and overachieved in the later phases – they couldn’t do much about it.
I developed a nutty attitude where I’d think, If some guy really loves me he doesn’t care if I’m fat. I’d come up with all these stupid reasons why it would be OK to be fat.
Fat Joe ain’t out here trying to battle-rap everybody in the world. That’s not what I’m about.
Every morning, I eat one fat-free yogurt with a sliced peach when peaches are in season, and one thin slice of whole-wheat bread. The same thing. I don’t want to get fat. And I want to keep my fitness.

A vegan diet takes care of most of what we need to do. But you’ll also want to minimize the use of oils generally, because while olive oil and other vegetable oils are better for your heart than chicken fat, they are as fattening as animal fats.
That’s just me and my own body issues – I think I’m fat and bald and old and ugly.
Women are wonderful, but they get so caught up about their body. We need to unhook from worrying so much. When I don’t feel good, I look in the mirror and think I look fat and miserable. But when I feel good and whole, I’m not worried about my body because I’m living in it. It doesn’t become an object.
All fat women look the same; they all look 42.
I’ve never wanted my kid faced with the idea of, ‘Who’s the fat guy sitting in the living room? What the hell is he doing?’ I figure I might as well go to work so he can say his dad works.

I was called everything ugly and black in the world. Man, those where some tough times. They called me Fat Albert, Magilla Gorilla, black ape. It all hurt.
When I was thin, I had no notion of what being fat is like. When I worked in a department store, I had sold clothes to women of most sizes, so I should have known; but perhaps you have to experience the state from the inside, to understand what fat is like.

I like to abide by the seasons and let the natural flavor in food speak for itself. I use quick cooking techniques of high heat with very little fat, such as quick saute or wok stir-frying.
The truth is what facts are. I like facts. I like things to line up and be clear, and when we are honest and true about things, it helps things to make sense, and it cuts out a lot of the fat that gets in the way and causes for the misunderstandings that I believe lead to violence and… dysfunction, etc.
As for restaurants and fast-food places who tip tons of oil down their drains, they are routinely encouraged to use fat traps, but enforcement is minimal. It costs money to cart away fat (although now that fat is being turned into energy, it can make money).
You size up someone physically in less than one second – too tall, too short, too fat, too thin, too old, too young, too stuffy, too scruffy.

Fat jokes to me are always, always hilarious, as long as they’re done towards yourself.
Gonpo Tso was born a princess. As a young woman, she dressed in fur-trimmed robes with fat ropes of coral beads strung around her neck.

I read that book ‘Fat is a Feminist Issue’, got a bit desperate halfway through and ate it.
I like everything that makes you fat.
A few dozen changes to the genome of a modern elephant – to give it subcutaneous fat, woolly hair and sebaceous glands – might suffice to create a variation that is functionally similar to the mammoth. Returning this keystone species to the tundras could stave off some effects of warming.
People are branded as either ‘fat’ or ‘skinny’ from an early age. You sort of never shake it, even if you end up losing weight.
There was no person, whether they thought I was too fat, too black, too country, too ghetto, too New York, too thug or too whatever! Nobody ultimately had the say over whether or not I was going to make it.

I’m not big on fat jokes. That’s a little beneath me. I’m not a huge fan of making a joke – and as I say this, I’m sure I do it – completely at someone else’s expense.
I think cooking is really key because it’s the only way you’re going to take back control of your diet from the corporations who want to cook for us. The fact is, so far, corporations don’t cook that well. They tend to use too much salt, fat, and sugar – much more than you would ever use at home.
I think ‘Cyrus’ has a lot of fat in it. It was a $7 million movie. If you’re going to make a movie with famous people, you don’t necessarily need to spend 7 million dollars. Make it for less than that, and you’ll be able to sell it and make a ton more than that, and everybody shares the profits.
In sausage, fat is a source of both delightfully porky flavor and a springy texture. Without enough fat, sausage will be dry and tasteless.
It’s so logical and so simple. Fat is the backup fuel system. The role it plays in the body is that when there’s no carbohydrate around, fat will become the primary energy fuel. That’s pretty well known.
If you’ve got a big gut and you start doing sit-ups, you are going to get bigger because you build up the muscle. You’ve got to get rid of that fat! How do you get rid of fat? By changing your diet.
It is no secret, of course, that people have strong feelings about fat – feelings that seem only to have been inflamed by the sense, in western countries, that there is an obesity crisis afoot. Concerns about health have mutated into a kind of panic attending any mention of fat people at all.
In my 20s, I was going round seeing agents who were patronising because I was fat and a girl, which was a double whammy. I knew what it was to feel out-of-the-loop.

There are a lot of people out there who are just bullies. They constantly keep telling you that you are too fat, too thin, your teeth are not fine, you can’t speak English really well, and you are too short, etc.
Leg day is my favorite day. You can’t have a thorough leg workout without feeling completely spent. It’s a challenge, but the benefits of maintain muscle mass on my legs is important because, as the biggest muscle group in the body, it also helps me keep the proper body composition in terms of fat to muscle ratio.
I want to prove that a fat guy can get to 100 still working.
I can’t remember a time where I really battled with my body, but I can remember being asked to lose weight and battling with the advice. It hurt me. Especially as my baby fat naturally melted away as I got older.

A lot of us are ruled by fear during our lives – afraid we’ll get burgled, afraid a dog will bite us, afraid we’ll get fat, afraid someone will leave us. Once you lose fear, life becomes sweeter, and that happens as you get older. I’m sure by the time I’m 80, I’ll be able to do absolutely anything!
I have moments where I feel incredibly ugly or fat, and it sucks, you know? I’ll usually try to keep a positive attitude because I’m really so grateful for where I am and the life I get to live, but I definitely have to work hard not to feel insecure.
I’m a little worried because I’ve heard that Shaq has got, like, really fat. If he’s going to go into WrestleMania bigger than me, I’m going to lose my moniker as ‘The World’s Largest Athlete.’ I hope he is well. I hope he is healthy.
If you look at the purported dangers of salt or fat, there is no consensus of support in scientific literature. So I would ask first: ‘Is it possible to have an informed government that actually follows the science?’ From what I’ve seen, it’s not likely.
I have been Fat Joe since I was a kid. It’s always been my name and always will be.
The role of a do-gooder is not what actors call a fat part.
A diet that is high in fat, sugar and salt makes it really hard for a body to function efficiently.

That’s what he was saying, the civil rights movement – judge me for my character, not how black my skin is, not how yellow my skin is, how short I am, how tall or fat or thin; It’s by my character.
I thought I was attractive when I shot ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding.’ Studio executives and movie reviewers let me know I had a confidence in my looks that was not shared by them. In other words, they labeled me with words like overweight, unattractive, unappealing.
Don’t assume that all fat people are gluttons. And don’t use the word ‘fat.’ There is a principle here. Learn from logic and experience not to associate things – especially in preaching – that don’t necessarily go together.
Almost everything I do is related to being fat.
I never really had experienced hate in school with girls and boys. What I do experience is social media, and so every day, people comment, ‘You’re fat, you’re ugly, you’re rude, you’re all this stuff,’ and I just don’t like it at all. I don’t want anyone to have to go through that.
I don’t get fat, I get skinny.

I’m obsessive enough about getting fit, it’s ridiculous. I’m 40 now, and I’ve got to stop doing it soon. I have to start getting fat and old!

Not all lies are harmful. Sometimes we’re willing participants in deception for the sake of social dignity, maybe to keep a secret that should be kept secret, secret. We say, ‘Nice song.’ ‘Honey, you don’t look fat in that, no.’
Mind you, I’ve always been a very off-message type of fat broad; one who gladly admits she reached the size she is now solely through lack of discipline and love of pleasure, and who rather despises people (except those with proven medical conditions) who pretend that it is generally otherwise.
I want people to realize bodybuilders are athletes. We have a very meticulous philosophy on how we are able to gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously.
While it’s typical to find steamed clam recipes which include a bit of bacon or sausage, you might not think of adding shredded ham hock, but it’s another way to pair the lusty, smoky flavor of animal fat with the briny ocean flavor of shellfish.
I don’t mind that I’m fat. You still get the same money.
In that wide struggle which we call Progress, evil is always the aggressor and the vanquished, and it is right that this should be so, for without its onslaughts and depredations humanity might fall to a fat slumber upon its cornsacks and die snoring.
My father raised us like… we were not allowed to see people in any sort of colors, but also we were not allowed to call people fat. If ever we were to say, ‘Oh that fat person, or this person,’ he would make us put a bar of soap in our mouth and count to 10. We weren’t allowed to look at people like that.
Even when I’m playing someone named ‘Fat Amy.’ I’m all about confidence and attitude.

If I were old, fat and ugly, I don’t know if anybody would be interested in me.
When I decided to become vegetarian, I had to learn how to ‘recook,’ if you will. For example, I used to put red wine in a big pot with the meat that I’d cooked in fat, and it was, of course, delicious. When I gave up meat, I wondered what I would make. That turned out to be vegetables, really organic and fresh.
I didn’t get fat even when I was pregnant. You have to work very hard at staying slim, and it’s a bore. But it’s worth it.
My parents’ generation’s benchmark was simple: Fat Equals Bad.
I use the confit principle for chicken thighs. I season them with herbs and garlic, let them marinate, and then cook them in chicken fat.

When you have a fat friend there are no see-saws, only catapults.

I would see these people calling me ‘fat’ and calling me horrible names. And this one page called me ‘Miss Piggy,’ and they only referred to me as ‘Miss Piggy.’ I was a 16-year-old girl. I did not know how to deal with that, and I was already insecure about my weight.
We’ve got the pretty-boy lead singer and the fat, dumpy drummer, and I’m the zany guitarist. Sure, we’ve played up the image at times. But it’s the music that matters most.

We’re so conditioned to believe that milk does a body good and that we need enormous amounts of protein or we’ll wither away. Look around, we’re not withering – we’re fat.
I find no sweeter fat than sticks to my own bones.
I’m really Americanized. The only real Latina thing I do is cook rice and beans with chuletas and tostones. I do the healthier version of what my grandmother would have made: a lot less salt, a lot less fat, a lot more vegetables. Sometimes I serve it with brown rice, which is, like, sacrilegious.

I want to make the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys. Cheap, affordable, basic – but ethically made. Basics, you know? Like Spanx – I’m still confused as to why retailers haven’t ripped them off yet and done it well. It’s because they don’t understand the basics behind it. I love Spanx. I’m wearing ’em right now!
When you’re a little fat boy in any kind of school, you’re just persecuted something awful.

I lost my front tooth in rugby league when a fat guy from Bellevue Hill kicked me in the face as I got up from a tackle to mark him. I made this decision not to cap the tooth because I thought it was false. But I didn’t make any movies as a teenager, and I had a very hard time with girls and stuff.

At times, I do Tabata, a high-intensity Japanese training regimen, in which I must do 20 seconds of a specific body part with 10 seconds of rest. This must be done eight times within four minutes. Your heart rate shoots through the roof, but you burn a lot of fat.
I never apologized for anything in my life. The only thing I’m sorry about is putting a curse on Roger Ebert’s colon. If a fat pig like Roger Ebert doesn’t like my movie, then I’m sorry for him.
You have all that muscle on you, you’re going to get tired. That’s why I prefer to be fat.
You can be fat and love yourself. You can be fat and have a great damn personality. You can be fat and sew your own clothes. But you can’t be fat and healthy.

The dirty little secret on Wall Street: Eighty percent of the Wall Street executives’ and their spouses’ donations go to Democrats. It’s like they’ve got some kind of little sweet deal, where we’ll call you fat cats and demean you and stuff, but you will get richer than your wildest dreams.
You can’t get rid of it with exercise alone. You can do the most vigorous exercise and only burn up 300 calories in an hour. If you’ve got fat on your body, the exercise firms and tones the muscles. But when you use that tape measure, what makes it bigger? It’s the fat!

People always had something to say about the fact I was odd looking, bigger than other people, that I was awkward. When I discovered punk, I bought into it. That look, combined with being fat, made me even less of what people thought a young woman should be.
I think the culture of the red carpet is too much like a modern-day coliseum. If you’re being photographed all the time, and you don’t like having a bad photograph taken, and if you’re super, super thin, chances are you’re never going to look fat in a picture.
Every day of my life, I feel fat. It’s not correct thinking in the natural, normal human being’s way of life.

I have a fat head – I get freaked-out looking at pictures of me.
Our cultural discussion of fat bodies and how we clothe them has nothing to do with health concerns, the obesity epidemic, or the comfort of fat people. It has everything to do with what we expect from women, what we’ve been told by the fashion industry, and the value we place on ‘perfect’ bodies.

I get 100 e-mails a day from Americans who say, ‘What you’re doing is cool – can we work for you?’ From Germans, I also get 100 e-mails a day, saying, ‘You fat pig!’ or ‘You’re a liar and a criminal!’ I’m trying to change this.

When I was a kid, I hated being talked to as a kid.

So I always talk to kids as if they were a person.
The reason I went for Jenny Craig is I thought, Maybe I’m not the only one who has stupid reasons for getting fat.

I didn’t have the easiest childhood. I was never the popular girl in school growing up. I was always the lone black girl or the lone fat girl or the long tall girl, so that has made me more compassionate to all people. It also gave me the drive and ambition to go after my dreams in a big way.
I often get references to ‘slight’ or whatever, and my weight’s been a thing for me my whole life. I have to really, really work. I train six times a week to just be normal and not be fat.

I don’t avoid carbs. I don’t avoid protein. I think it’s just, again, about balance and finding what works for you and your body. For me, having a higher protein, higher carbohydrate, and middle-of-the-road fat count usually gets the job done as far as my energy needs and for my physique.
