Actual potatoes are a nutritious staple food that have long served as sustenance for many different societies and provide a low calorie source of vitamins B6 and C. That thing in the photo is not a potato. I believe the most appropriate analogous term for fats would be tumors. Because like tumors, they are useless, malfunctioning cancerous clumps of cells that devour everything around them, slowly destroying their host.

I love the tumor comparison — both metaphorically and pshysically so apt

Actual tumors are a naturally occurring phenomenon that can often be removed without consequence. Removing fats is not so simple. They are destructive but cannot be destroyed themselves for fear of legal repercussions. While modern technology threatens the lives of tumors, modern technology allows fats to prosper. In that sense they are inferior to cancer... Jk, your analogy is fine.

When you cool a cooked potato off, it creates reverse starches which your gut flora absolutely looooove! You can cook and cool a potato a bunch of times and each time more reverse starches will form!
