"They get fully hooked, it is an extremely noxious thing. It is more common with bulimia than anorexia but you get the combination of empty calories with no nutritional value and the risky behaviour that goes with being drunk."
This is something that rather annoys me, this mantra of "empty calories".
Yes, I know what is meant, there\’s no vitamins there, nothing beyond simply the calories themselves.
But going from there to "no nutritional value" is near insane. Of course they have nutritional value: they\’re calories!
