The author reflects on overeating. He asserts that obesity would not be a major health problem if people would know and respect their limits. He notes that if only enough of the people learn to practice moderation again, chefs like Hillary Nelson will not feel guilty preparing their sinful desserts and governments can get back to debating legislation that truly matters.
