Good Morning,

I saw this on the news this morning and remembered our discussions on Vegetarianism. Some of the worst foods for you (Site Link Here)

Note: You'll not want to be eating when you see some of the things people have come up with.

Enjoy Smile

Your typical American maintains a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, and a large selection of land mammals daily such as cows, dogs, cats, and small yet obese children. We ingest them, cowboy hats and all. Though the Federal drug administration does not count them, the soul is also a part of the American diet. Yes, the soul exists, and yes, Americans find them delicious. But that's seriously nasty though xcris... ham sandwiches???

Xris,

In short, yes they do.

For proof I'd recommend browsing through one of the many (and I emphasize many) shopping malls throughout the country.

@Khethil,
On my prospective I think their is more to fast food then the Calories. I think it's about how much you eat a day. You would probably worry about how much in take your eating to worry about the Calories.

@Khethil,
It has nothing to do with just sheer quantity, it's calories. Your body won't gain weight unless you consistently exceed your suggested caloric intake (absent of other health problems which could cause fat gain, for various reasons).

But, since sheer quantity usually does equal a higher calorie consumption, you're kinda right -- people should worry about just how much they're eating.

Haha, one chocolate shake is more than half the calories an average male should eat a day.

Baskin Robbins large Oreo shake has 2,600 calories, 135 grams of fat, and 263 grams of sugar. I think drinking a whole one in one sitting instantly causes diabetes.

Here is an ingredient list for their Heath Bar shake monstrosity, which has only 2300 calories for a large and probably has about as much fat as the Oreo variety.

Ingredients:

2600 calories = 50 oreo cookies (which interestingly enough is the amount of oreo's in a large box of oreo cookies) So... what Baskin Robins actually did was take an entire box of oreo cookies, liquify it, and basically inject it into you stomach via shake. Better yet, why stop there? Take a handful of "natural flavors" and preservatives like parabens from the chemical grab-bag and add those to the mix... don't worry, it'll taste great. Top people worked on putting that concoction together... top people.

What? Diabetes? I specifically heard Wilford Brimley say "it'll help ya live a better life." What's that? You don't want me to live a better life?

@Khethil,
I wish my old hard drive wouldn't have failed, and thus, I lost everything on it. I had a nutrition label for one of their special shakes from a couple of summers ago, and it looked like the label for instant death.

Wilford Brimley...reminds me of that horrible Wilford Brimley rap.

@Khethil,
Apparently the junk food pizza is topped with jalapeno poppers. I'm guessing that jalapeno slices dipped in amyl nitrate..?

Are all these American? There seemed to be a lot of Glaswegian cuisine there. A disproportionate amount of it, actually. To the point where Glaswegians really ought to see this.

EDIT: Though the meta-pizza is genius.

You take the lettuce and tomato out of your burgers, don't you? Never met a Glaswegian that didn't. And deep-frying everything... what's that all about? How can we make this burger even worse for us..? I know, drop it in the deep-fryer! Mmmmm... yum!

Not as weird, though, as the american fixation with mixing meat with sweets: chocolate covered bacon, bacon muffins, candy pizzas... Do they have no taste buds at all...? Pancakes with maple syrup on the same plate as bacon and eggs.... It's just wrong!

@Kage phil,
Yea, me neither. I can't imagine some food combinations folks put together.

But for you across the various ponds and such; this thing is a story precisely because it isn't the norm; and probably isn't any more prevailant here as anywhere else (besides, who's going to define "odd"). But no, as a country we might not eat very well. But the stuff mentioned in the OP story is definitely fringe.

Thanks
