Kate Moss' 'Skinny' Statement is Food for ThoughtPosted on Nov 17th 2009 2:00PM by Kristen Seymour

Now, as someone who's interested in fashion, I think Moss is fascinating. However, as a woman who feels very strongly that women need healthy role models to look up to, I have issues with her waif look, so this statement got me fairly fired up. Whether you're aspiring to lose weight or not, it's important that you enjoy foods in a healthful way, and Moss' statement is far from showing a healthy attitude toward food.
But then, I got to thinking about her real meaning behind this. I mean, yes, Kate Moss is skinny. But her statement actually brings up a good question that applies to all of us -- are there any foods out there that you're willing to put on a little weight for?
For me, the answer is an absolute yes. Dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant inevitably means that, the next day, my scale will be up a pound or two. That's okay with me -- the amazing meal is worth an extra workout, or a couple of nights without dessert. And that, I think, is healthy. I feel like it's all about balance, but, then again, I'm also not a supermodel.
What about you? Is there anything out there that's so tasty, it's worth your jeans fitting a little too tightly the next day? Do you think any food is fine, as long as it's enjoyed in moderation? Or do you agree with Kate -- nothing is as delicious as being thin?
