Are restaurant critics/food writers generously proportioned folks?

As I was enjoying a recent issue of Saveur and then the recently published Counter Intelligence by Jonathan Gold (in which the richer and fattier items were highly praised by Mr. Gold), I realized how much fatty foods all these restaurant critics and food writers must consume. Does anyone know if every restaurant critic and food writer is generously proportioned? If not, what's their secret for eating so well but maintaining a trim physique and healthy heart? I'm guessing that eating at many great restaurants on someone else's tab must make them pretty happy and contributes to the happy=healthy heart equation. Just very curious how anyone manages to eat foie gras every day and stay out of the cardiac care unit...
