But what defines hurting someone else? Is it only in the immediate? Would someone having to live with and possibly support your decisions count?

That's a slippery slope argument, an example of a logical fallacy. Don't do that.
I'm sorry, how is it a slippery slope argument? A law that bans pre-processed foods that contain high amounts of sugar would necessitate removing things like simple syrup from store shelves! It would be like saying illegalizing beer due to its alcohol content is okay because you think you will still have your wine.
If 'the government' wishes to wade in & limit the 'hidden' levels of additives in food that's ok with me just as it would be ok if they didn't.
Of course you do. But I live in a place that doesn't have a queen anymore like your country does, because we don't like being told what to do by people who think they're better than us. Personal liberties are not a thing that should be dictated by the government. If I want to eat a donut, drink a Mai Tai, eat sugar cubes by the box full or whatever else, I don't need a board of bureaucrats deciding that for me. Anyone who thinks that treatment is okay as a grown man or woman may as well put on a bib and go to sleep by 9 PM, because you're a child, not an adult.
BTW, next time you quote me, don't write something else in the quotation box please other than what I actually typed.

Please end the political rant!
We get enough of that crap everywhere else on the net, don't want it or need it here.

Back on topic, I started a TC thread for low carb cocktail recipes and such (including some discussion of Gary Taubes writing on the cause of obesity, as TikiTacky mentioned). Swanky was an active and valuable contributor to the thread. Take a look...
