Michael Bauer Would Like to Remind Everyone He Doesn’t Look Like Orson Welles

Mr. Welles

For all those readers and commenters out there who refuse to believe that Michael Bauer isn't an obese testament to the fattiness of restaurant food, he lashes back on the blog today to say that, actually, he's never really been overweight, and if you must know, he recently put on four pounds because he'd stopped going to the gym, but he's lost two of those pounds thanks to getting back on the treadmill. Also, "I'm proof that you won’t become fat from eating regularly in restaurants ... My point is, you can eat healthy in a restaurant, often healthier than you eat at home, but diners do have to accept some responsibilities for their choices and for exercising portion control." He's talking about nice, vegetable-heavy California food, of course, and he obviously isn't predisposed, genetically, to obesity. But you'll have to take his word for it. [Between Meals/Scoop]
