Trans Fat in NYC: Update!

It’s happened. New York City has banned trans fat in restaurants. Corn cobs everywhere are furious, but we think it’s pretty cool. Of course, it would be better if restaurants did this of their own accord; legal intervention is never as inspiring. But we’ll take it!

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. While it’s reassuring to know I wouldn’t get any trans fats if I ate in a restaurant in NYC, what will happen if they decide they need to ban all fats and cholesterol (or put a limit), too, and I can’t go into a restaurant and get a nice low carb meal of steak, hamburger or eggs. And then what if they decide to do the same for grocery stores? Fats are such an important part that I worry that the trans fat ban is just the beginning.
