Joe Rogan slams ‘fat’ professors who say healthy eating is offensive: ‘Fuck off’

Joe Rogan slammed the “fat professor” who defended an unhealthy lifestyle on Saturday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

“Fuck the fat professors, fuck you, you’re unhealthy, it’s not good in any way,” Rogan said.

Rogan’s guest was Derek, a fitness influencer on the “More Plates, More Dates” YouTube channel, and the pair appeared to be citing a document from the University of British Columbia in Canada. The document defends removing nutritional information from menus because putting calorie counts next to items could “trigger” some students.

“For those with disordered eating habits or eating disorders, this may be a trigger,” the document to the students read. “For those of us who have had or are in a precarious relationship with food, it can be triggered when we see calorie information, and it affects our ability to repair our relationship with food. By stepping away from nutritional information, we can be more mindful focus on enjoying food and creating satisfying experiences.”

Derek described how the university “apparently removed all nutritional information from students’ meal plans because it was ‘too stimulating’ to show calories.”

He continued, “It presents this fucking scene where you can’t even self-regulate, even as someone trying to maintain a healthy weight, and you can’t even figure out what the fuck is — you’re eating.”

Rogan recalls a viral video showing a female professor “talking about [how] Avoiding certain foods is just a ‘fear of fat’, ‘it has no scientific basis’. ’” He also remembers the woman saying, “You shouldn’t deny yourself a donut” and “It’s not right to call certain foods ‘junk food.’” “

“How do you talk about this publicly?” Rogen wondered.

Rogan criticized the idea that people are obsessed with “actual data” about the foods they choose to eat, suggesting, “It doesn’t mean that anyone should tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, but you should know.”

The moderator suggested that by demonizing the basic message, “they’re raising the most inelastic human being that man may have known, every microaggression, every thing that can trigger you, all of that is erased and you’re just raw and vulnerable .”

“We’re going to protect you in this university system and then spit you out into the world and you’re going to infect companies with this ideology — that’s what we’re going through,” he added.

“It’s amazing how the shift to a comfort mindset has become commonplace,” Derek responded. “I think that’s part of the reason why men’s testosterone levels are also dropping – like lifestyle and encouraging sedentary people – they get offended and insulted by almost anything that’s not good for men temperament.”
