Fat America Rules!!

"I'll have the vegetarian sandwich, please....oh, and a side of angioplasty, and, uh, one shot of insulin. Oh, and can you make that to go...I'm in a hurry!"

Maybe it's time Fat America's food purveyors added some more options to their menus. Check out this article from Men's Health. An 1,100 calorie "healthy" vegetarian sandwich from Blimpie's (doesn't the name of their restaurant tell you all you need to know?). A kids meal that also clocks in at 1,100 calories (kids need a total of 1,600 calories a day, so maybe Chili's thinks they're helping parents be more efficient). That's the "Chili’s Smokehouse Bacon Triple-The-Cheese Big Mouth Burger" at a mere 2,040 calories at left. And the winner of The Worst Food Of 2009 is..............a milkshake from Baskin-Robbins with 2,600 calories that you would consume in about 12 minutes (with the equivalent sugar of 20 bowls of Fruit Loops)! Awesome!! Only in America, right? I'm both repelled and fascinated. U.S.A., U.S.A., U.S.A.!!!
