I rarely have a problem with shows on TV. Even if they are not my favorite shows and I disagree with the messages they convey, I won’t make a big deal out of it.
But one show I have a serious problem with is Travel Channel’s Man v. Food. First, I have a hard time finding food in industrial quantities appetizing – and I’ve been told I can eat like a truck driver. Second, why are TV producers in the U.S. presenting gluttony as something worthy of praise?
Don’t get me wrong, I love food and I love eating. I think everyone should enjoy the pleasure that food brings, whether its fried, steamed, grilled or poached. But please, everything in moderation.
Funny fact: the show is sponsored by Zantac.
