  1. Decades ago, erstwhile colleagues and I speculated (under the influence of alcohol) about the possibiliyt of designing a food sufficiently alkaline to taste as good coming up as it did going down. The target market being those with a predeliction for extreme alcohol indugence – innocent, simpler days, when none of us knew about bulimia. We got as far as deciding on the name under which it would be marketed:”Twice”.

  2. ‘Until now, I have never fully acknowledged to myself or to anyone else I had an eating disorder.’

    I wish she had kept it a secret.

    Does the Guardian employ any normal people?

    You don’t have to have a psychological disorder to write for the guardian, but it helps.

  4. Means she can taste much more food and also taste it twice, going down and coming back up.

    What a vile and insensitive comment.

    When food comes back up it just tastes like vomit. The real USP for the bulimic food critic is that you can review six restaurants in a day without gaining weight.

  5. As I tweeted yesterday:
    Who would have guessed that a Guardian food writer would be a neurotic weirdo with extreme anxieties linked to food? Just didn’t see that one coming.

    >Does the Guardian employ any normal people?

    We can but look at the data…

  6. “In the audience of 300 food writers, journalists and chefs packed into a trendy warehouse venue in London, ”

    Why can you never find a suicide bomber when you need one?

  7. I can’t tell you how to be thin, or cure your irritable bowel syndrome, or reverse the process of ageing. I can’t tell you everything about where your food came from, or where to shop to save the planet. But I can look back at my 14-year-old self and offer a little reassurance. It’s OK to be hurt. It’s OK to feel ashamed. It’s OK to get it wrong, for years. It’s OK to eat. It’s OK to panic. It’s OK to cry. Because, one day, you will recover.

    Self-indulgent drivel from a neurotic feminist and eco-nutjob…

  8. “‘Until now, I have never fully acknowledged to myself or to anyone else I had an eating disorder.’

    Yes. Regularly throwing up shortly after eating is so easy to escape one’s notice. For a lot of late night kebab places, I believe it’s obligatory.

  9. Does the Guardian employ any normal people?

    No, unless you happen to be normal and the offspring of senior staff, in which case you will be employed anyway.


    Indeed. It’s all a performance.

  10. It’s OK to eat

    Unless you are working class and like food the Guardian disapproves of, in which case it isn’t, you fat slob racist Brexit supporting hater.

  11. I would scoff a family-sized chocolate bar in front of the telly, a loaf of homemade bread on the train, a box of chocolates in the car – then bring it all up. I would always hide the evidence, down the back of the sofa or in the foot well.

    that must be one disgusting sofa!!

    god I hate these self- obsessed womenzz-
    and of course she has that ‘resting bitch face’
