I don't think telling others what/how much they can eat is the right way. If I was going to eat 10,000 calories a day (aside from being dreadfully
ill after) who would stop me? Sure, people could attempt to reason with me, try to educate me about the things I am putting into my body etc, but if I
was determined to do it, I wouldn't listen and I'd go ahead with it.
There's also a psychology behind it.
Take for example, the consumables that are marketed as NOT FOR WOMEN or NOT FOR MEN, and that gender thinks... PSH whatever, I'll have it anyway.
It's kinda the same thing. If this thing has a name like The Triple Heart Bypass, you don't (usually) think "Holy cow, that will kill me", more
something like, "I'll take that with a side order of everything, I'm hardcore me."
It's not just the food that is the issue, its the way its presented.
