Yay America. Seriously, I would not have it any other way, but I do understand that some people don't like being fat. I find a certain freedom in just letting it all go and not worrying about weight or whether I am going to fit into something. Life on this earth is short enough without me trying to eat something I don't enjoy for 30 years to get an extra year or two of life. Yes, there are heart attacks and high blood pressure, but thanks to the medical marvels of the 21st century, I think I can keep right on going. Knock on wood.
Anyway, in case you want to know what some of your favorite dishes are worth in caloric fun, here is a sample. Oh, the article didn't include my favorite example which is the cheese fries at Outback. 3000 calories. I love those things and can eat two entirely by myself and still eat a full meal after. Oh, the Ayers Rock Strip? 60 grams of fat.
Oh, think you would prefer a turkey burger? Healthier right? At Ruby Tuesday's their turkey burger comes in at 1,145 calories and 71 grams of fat. In fact, did you know the average entree at a sit down restaurant has about 30% more calories than a fast food chain like McDonalds and that doesn't even include appetizers or desserts or the free bread or the booze.
Maybe you only go out to eat for breakfast. Well how about this tasty number from Bob Evans. Caramel Banana Pecan Cream Stacked and Stuffed Hotcakes which has 1,540 calories and 77 grams of fat. That is the way to kick start your day. You could have five Egg McMuffins and still not quite approach the number of calories in this dish.
Well what about chicken? Surely that is safe. Ever been to Chili's? Ever got Chili's Honey Chipotle Crispers with Chipotle Sauce? Well if you have you got yourself 2,040 calories and 99 grams of fat. Chili's Awesome Blossom is also home to the appetizer which actually finished slightly ahead of my Outback fries because of the sodium. The Awesome Blossom has 2,710 calories, 203 grams of fat, 194 grams of carbs and 6,360 mg of sodium. And remember it's just an appetizer.
I could go on all day, but seriously, I am hungry even after reading about these. I think they are fun, but they really don't change my eating habits. Instead, I will be looking for the dish that is the worst for you, just to try it. I do love the law though and think it is something that can be used well. It just isn't for me.
