The gang's all here. Armi, Lawrence and Emma gather around the Internet microphone to discuss how applicable research is to real world dieting.

Don't feel too bad about that can of Coke, or that chocolate bar - Emma says we naturally find and eat high calorie foods.

There's also a great segment in this episode where the gang talk about the difference between real addiction and when your friends tell you you're addicted to the gym.

Lawrence and Emma gather around the microphone to talk about vegetarianism this episode. 

The discussion is kicked off by this study on vegetarian diets and mental disorders and it has some very interesting results. 

Are some people vegetarian just to label an obsessive eating disorder?

Does fish count?

And, in Germany, does chicken count?

All this and more in this episode.
