The Fuming Fuji Says No to Donuts

By Worker Bee

The Fuming Fuji is outraged at the marketing of toxic food, especially when it’s aimed at the small fry. This week, the Fuming Fuji has decided to have a serious problem with donuts.

But, Fuming Fuji, you ask, isn’t a donut now and then an OK treat – it’s better than a candy bar, right?

The Fuming Fuji says no!

The claim: Donuts are a delicious, homespun pastry made from mostly flour and good feelings, so they’re not as bad as candy.

The catch: Donuts are an empty, machine-made free-radical fest made from sugar and fat, so they are actually the worst food on the planet.

The comeback: But Fuming Fuji, they’re bread! How can they be so bad?

The conclusion: Donuts are a mixture of equal parts sugar (bleached) and fat (usually lard). Then, they are fried. In fat.

The catchphrase: If you eat donuts you are nuts.

Disclaimer: Mark Sisson and the Worker Bees do not necessarily endorse the views of the Fuming Fuji.

This suggests that lard is a bad thing, when I think it has subsequently been heartily approved by the Primal guru.
