Joe Rogan slammed “fat professors” who defend unhealthy lifestyles on Saturday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
“Fuck off fat professors, fuck off you’re unhealthy, that’s not a good thing in any way,” Rogan said.
Rogan’s guest was fitness influencer Derek from the More Plates, More Dates YouTube channel, in which the two appeared to link to a document from the University of British Columbia in Canada. The document defended the removal of nutritional information from menus because listing the calorie count next to a dish can be “triggering” for some students.
“It can be triggering for people with disordered eating habits or eating disorders,” the document reads for students. “For those of us who have had a difficult relationship with food, either in the past or in the present, being presented with calorie information can be triggering and it can affect our ability to reconnect with food. By moving away from nutritional information, we can focus more on the enjoyment of food and create a satisfying experience.”

Derek described how the university “apparently removed all nutritional information from the foods students were given on their menus because showing the calories was ‘too triggering’.”
He continued, “It presents this damn scenario where you can’t even regulate yourself, even the people who want to maintain a healthy weight, you can’t even figure out what the heck you’re eating.”

Rogan recalled seeing a viral video of a professor “talking about it [how] Avoiding certain foods is just ‘fat phobic’ and ‘it’s not based on science.'” He also recalled the woman saying, “You shouldn’t deny yourself donuts” and “Calling some food ‘junk food’ is wrong .”
“How can you ever talk about it publicly?” Rogan wondered.
Rogan has criticized the idea that people are bothered by “actual data” about the foods they choose to eat, suggesting that it “doesn’t mean anyone should be telling you what you should or shouldn’t do, but You should know.”
The host suggested that by demonizing basic information, they are raising “the most resilient people known to mankind, where every single micro-aggression, every single thing that can trigger you, all of those are removed 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 where you then infect corporations with this ideology – and we’re seeing that,” he added.
“It’s crazy how the shift to the comfort mentality has become so commonplace,” Derek replied. “I feel like that’s also partly why men’s testosterone levels are falling – as is the lifestyle and encouragement to be a settled piece of S – whoever is offended and offended by literally everything, none of it is that Conducive to masculinity.”
